    really enjoy his work too, loved Wonder Boys, Traffic, Falling Down, Wall Street, China Syndrome, One Flew…so so many to mention, what a distinguished wonderful career he’s had. Aside…he was so funny in Will & Grace episode, that was a riot!

    Loved Michael Douglas in ‘The Game’ and loved Jack Nicholson in ‘The Shining’. Awesome movies!

    I love Jack Nicholson in everything. Michael douglas and Demi Moore, they were a great acting combo.

    Actually Michael/Demi were seriously panned for their performances in that one (Discloseure?). Have to admit, the notion of a man being sexually harrassed in the workplace by a woman, and playing the helpless victim was downright laughable 🙂

    ‘Disclosure’

    I thought it was good, Hollywood came up with a unique idea for a movie, they seem to have trouble with that sometimes.
    So, I guess you would enjoy being sexually harrassed by a women? bet it doesn’t happen often, if at all…lol

    This is one we’ll have to disagree on, tg. I liked that movie even though most people did seem to think it was a joke. I thought Michael played his role very convincingly (he’s one of my faves). I think its just too hard to picture harrassment of males because we don’t hear about it often, but I bet it happens. No reason powerful women wouldn’t sometimes abuse their control over employees just like men do, don’t you think?

    The movie is based on a Michael Crichton novel.

    I never said I didn’t like the movie 🙂
    I was only talking about the notion. I don’t always agree with critics.

    Glad I didn’t pay to see Disclosure…it was pathetic…

    however I am not a Demi fan, think her a very poor actress…

    haha, lily, I think you meant dg, not tg, I hadn’t even commented on this article!

  13. lily • June 19, 2009 @ 9:28 PM

    omg what a mistake! Sorry demigod and tributegirl cause for some reason I misread that signature! Anyway, now I know why I liked it so much since Crichton is an author I really like, so thanks for the info DG! And sorry, I don’t really know what you mean by disliking “the notion”: you don’t think men can get harassed by women?

  14. tributegirl • June 20, 2009 @ 9:36 AM

    LOL lily, no problem, I can see how easily that could happen! After all, demigod is darn near as smart as me! 😉

    I never said I dislike the notion (idea). I just thought that it was laughable 🙂 And that scene in her office when she had him ‘cornered’ with her sexual advances, and him sayin’ no, no,no! haha sorry, not believable. He was no victim. This just doesn’t happen either 🙂
