    I think Nicolas Cage is a great actor and it does not surprise me that his movie is doing well.

    Alvin and the Chipmunks on the other hand, are over-worked and under paid!! Wouldn’t you agree Arnold??

    The picture I’m looking forward to most this Christmas is ONE MISSED CALL, which looks to be the best Holiday movie since the original HOSTEL…

    What you talkn bout Nancy?
    Those Chipmunks work hard for the money so hard for the money, so hard for you honey.

    Alvin and Theodore over stressed and over medicated, hangin at the Ford Centre with the Knight Rider.

    Give the weirdos time and they’ll come back with some angle that the chipmunks will ultimately affect the psychological well-being of children (like they did with Winnie the Pooh, the teletubbies, etc.) They have way too much time on their hands.

    Nick Cage, on the other hand, makes really good movies and it’s no wonder his movie displaced the rodents.

    As for the movie; for every bit of fiction there is a morsel of truth.

    Scary prospect that there is such a book of secrets and it contains truths about assassinations, conspiracies, etc. that we mere mortals are not privy to.

    Makes one feel like a puppet on a string.
