    Classic as "Bad Hair" in "Dead Solid Perfect"--which is one of the all-time underrated movies.

    Mr Bastard,

    If pressed I'd suggest that Julie Bovino and Mrs Mamet (as Caitlin Costello Price) approached authenticity as Bostonians. Bar scenes were pretty good. And what about Milo O'Shea as the judge ("you're not going to get a mistrial")?

    YHS, etc
  3. "You were a bagman for the boys downtown" was the most Bostonian piece of dialogue.
    Julie Bovasso was too New York -- just as Southie was too "Arlington" when he braks into her mailbox. Lindsay Crouse went for the full brogue, for reasons I never could fathom.
    I liked the State House as the hospital, especially when they rolled the body out of the Senate Ways and Means office.

    Didn't want to wade through several pages, but I think this movie is underrated in so many ways, as was Warden's role as Max. Sad to hear.
  5. alleyallen - there were only 3 pages. That's not wading - that's getting your ankles wet.

    I thought that was Jason Robards as Ben Bradlee (another great fit in that movie), or am I wrong?

    Who would yell "WOODSTEIN!" when there was a problem?

    "Don't fuck it up" was Warden as the metro editor.

    God, Robards was incredible, though.

    Well, when you have a 3-year-old wanting your attention and a girlfriend and her two kids also filling the house, you don't always have the time to read through even three pages of condolences to satisfy the urgings and unwritten requirements of Lou Merloni.

    You were saying?
