Well, let me see. Uma Thurman has nice eyes... No, there’s that thing where she keeps them open during kisses, so that’s out. Arnold... no. Clooney... no, that’s a bust too, even though he’s not that bad. Chris O’Don—What the hell am I doing? Look, no animals were harmed during the making of this movie! There!
The best that can be said about Ishtar is that Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman, two of the most intelligent actors of their generation, play dumb so successfully that on the basis of this film there's no evidence for why they've made it in the movies.
"This is easily the greatest Canadian film about ostriches ever made."

I certify that William McGonagall has for some time been known to me. I have heard him speak, he has a strong proclivity for the elocutionary department, a strong voice, and great enthusiasm. He has had a great deal of experience too, having addressed audiences and enacted parts here and elsewhere.
