You Can Keep Paris, I'd Rather Get the Girl
on February 3, 2001
I know I'm supposed to like this movie, but I don't. Of course, it's got some great lines like 'Here's looking at you kid' (I use that one all the time) and 'Play it again, Sam.' The World War Two subplot also kind gets you, like some kind of turf war between rival gangs, the Nazis and the French. But what gives me the jip is the fact that Humphy lets that sweet kid go off on a plane trip into the fog with some dorky freedom fighter. Not me, brother. I'd rather peach that palooka to the Gestapo and grab the moll for myself, Paris or no Paris. The way I figure it is there'll always be plenty of wars going on somewhere. The main thing's not to pass up a class dame when she just happens to stumble into your gin joint, Rick. Claude Rains or Ingrid Bergman - I know who I'd rather spend the war with.
