A good Compromise
18 September 2015 | by joshuabenhaggaiSee all my reviews

OK, it's her turn to watch a movie she likes, yet being a man of action you start to have panic attacks just thinking about movies like Xanadu and When Harry met Sally.Well this is it! If you can sleep with one eye open you got it.Good o'l Chuck knows that sometimes we just have to..oh whats the word?? compromise.Well done-some good acting and you get to see Jaws which is cool.You also get to see parts of the theater that you don't usually get to see. I would really like to know just who changes the light bulbs in these crawl spaces.I have seen this in horror movies and no matter how dilapidated the place is there is always light bulbs,who does that?
