- The fashion of the 90s was really, really unflattering and unsightly.
- What's worse than the fashion of the 90s, however, is the hair of the 90s. The Ward sisters had some NASTY business going on on top of their heads.
- If you are a female from the Midwest, South, or the Western states of the United States, you'll probably sound a bit trashy and "rough" if you swear an excessive amount. However if you're a woman from Boston, or a suburb of Boston, swearing a lot will make you sound really fucking cool, will help you get what you want out of life, and will prevent people from messing with you.
- Even if someone were to offer me crack and put a lot of social pressure on me to try it, "C'mon, just once..." I would never do it, because that shit seems too hard to quit. I get annoyed and whine when I develop a headache from not getting my daily (small) dose of caffeine first thing in the morning: I seriously doubt I'd be able to survive a serious detox. When I gave up chocolate for Lent I felt crabby and lost for about seven straight days. Kids, just say no to drugs.
The acting was IMMACULATE. Marky-Mark, Christian Bale, Melissa Leo, Amy Adams, sisters, etc., all did an amazing job acting like a crazy wacked-out family. I wholeheartedly believe Melissa Leo deserves an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. I loved Amy Adams in this movie, and hope to live my life with a little more Charlene (IE - tough girl who says what she means and gets what she wants), but Melissa Leo's performance blew me away.
My advice: SEE IT NOW. If you don't like fighting you might have to cover your eyes a bit at the boxing parts, but you'll be okay. Trust.
