A Tribute to an Unappreciated Movie
Other People's Money

Here's an ode to an unappreciated movie from the early 90's. The movie was about corporate greed and takeovers. Don't worry, there was a happy ending. The corporation managed to salvage the old factory and convert it to something useful for the late 20th century economy. And Danny DeVito got the girl. I was always thought Penelope Ann Miller was cute.

Anyway, here are a couple of quotes that I thought was funny as hell, both of them by Danny DeVito's character. DeVito had sarcasm down to an art-form.

Kate Sullivan: Well, for someone who has nothing nice to say about lawyers, you certainly have plenty of them around.

Lawrence Garfield: They're like nuclear warheads. They have theirs, so I have mine. Once you use them, they fuck up everything.


You know, at one time there must've been dozens of companies making buggy whips.
 And I'll bet the last company around was the one that made the best goddamn buggy whip you ever saw. Now how would you have liked to have been a stockholder in that company?
