->I once ran the Indy 500\\
I must confess I'm impressed how I did it\\
I wonder how close that I came\\
Now I get a sinking sensation\\
I was the top of the line - out of sight, out of mind\\

->That cheerleading outfit isn't making you look any younger, [[{{Music/Madonna}} Madge]]. It's time for you to stop putting out aggressively bland comeback albums and make room for Music/{{Kesha}} and [[Music/KatyPerry Katy]] and the other 800 female artists out there who change outfits every five minutes to distract people from their terrible singing.

->The audience got some insight into how reckless [[Wrestling/RicFlair Flair’s]] financing is, and all it took was some pen-and-paper arithmetic [[FromTheMouthsOfBabes by Wendy’s pre-teen son]]...Kitty later confronted Ric, and in their heart-to-heart talk, she said she believed that Ric was spending so frivolously to try to hold on to that rush of excitement from his glory days in the ring. Ric [[ManlyTears welled up with tears]], as if in agreement, showing a very human side to the Nature Boy. Then he [[MachoMasochism punched open his old forehead scars]] and called the cops on Kitty for domestic assault. Nah, maybe I embellished just slightly right there.

->[[Creator/StevenSeagal Steven (Seagal)]] started out surprisingly strong, considering his obvious acting limitations. ''Film/UnderSiege'' wasn't too bad, despite my standing claim that Steven wasn't really the star and that [[ObligatoryJoke the battleship out-acted him.]]... But the years have not been kind to ol' Steven. It seems that he's blown all his cash to feed his Ding-Dong habit, as you'll notice if you pick up anything of his since ''Film/ExitWounds''. He's so tubby in ''Film/HalfPastDead'' that almost every shot of him is in [[CloseupOnHead extreme close-up]] so you can't see his ponderous paunch and huge jiggly ass. The few times you do see him from the neck-down, he's [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy in gigantic baggy prison chinos and sporting a hilarious dew-rag]]. But in truth, Steven's [[ObviousStuntDouble stuntman]] gets most of the camera time anymore. He's more walrus now than man, and if he were to seriously try any of that aikido shit anymore he'd herniate himself so bad his stomach would rupture and he'd drown the crew in gravy.

->As the morons crawl up the slope of the dune on their hands and knees [?], we get [[FanDisservice close-ups of Uhura’s beefy legs]] from the front and from behind and, as near as I can tell, that’s actually Nichelle Nichols dancing. And this is another one of the big problems with the movie as a whole: Everyone’s old enough to qualify for Medicare, and yet they’re still running around and getting naked and rolling around in the dirt like they’re the same age as when they made the original series. Nichelle Nichols certainly looks good for her age here, but I think most ''Trek'' fans would prefer these characters presented in a slightly more dignified way.
