23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here
"You can always tell a lazy Robin Williams movie by the unavoidable scene in which he does a lot of different voices and characters... All right, already. We know he can do this; we've seen him do it in a dozen movies and on a hundred talk shows. He's getting to be like the goofy uncle who knows one corny parlor trick and insists on performing it at every family gathering."
"The movie is proud to tell us that Richard Gere does his own coronet solos (they must mention it five times in the trailers and in the opening credits). Donít quit your day job Richard, a second year player could doodle out what you were doing in the movie."
"There's the old adage about odd and even-numbered Trek films, but I'll let you in on a secret: it's a bad Trek film when any of the main characters sing. The only exception is TMP, which has no singing, because that would distract from the boredom."
"When the Doctor turns up on stage looking like a complete clown it pretty much summed up my feelings towards his characterisation in this installment. Watching Robert Picardo indulging in a signing session at a Trek convention is not what I switch on Voyager to watch and the way the Doctorís ego spirals out of all control is agonising to watch. He hasnít been this unbearable for many a year. I thought Voyager was his home and his family and just because this race of Munchkins revere his singing he finds that a good enough reason enough to ditch everybody who gave him a chance to express himself? Its such shallow, surface characterisation that even Picardo cannot salvage it...I would have had his programme restored to its factory settings and happily have tossed all of my arguments for his independence out of the nearest airlock."
"Hey, those TNA numbers are going down. Thatís no good! So with things falling off a cliff, I bet the crew down in Orlando came up with a humdinger of an opening segment to grab viewers by the short and curlies.
Well, we got Eric Bischoff playing an acoustic guitar.
Does that count?"
"Oh, no joke or anything, I was in Penzance as the main police officer and it's rare for me to get a chance to sing the music, so I'm just indulging myself."
