Yay! 90+ minutes of Ford acting like a batty bastard.

River Phoenix: But Daddy you are clearly a nutjob, and social services should have seen this before allowing you to drag us all to the depths of the Amazonian jungle.
Ford: Crazy crazy crazy!! Communists everywhere, and they are in my pants now, must build utopian paradise here............OBEY ME!!
River Phoenix: You really didn't plan this well though did you, I mean disease, angry tribesmen to deal with, and don't forget Water that gives you a severe case of the shits!
Ford: Crazy crazy crazy!!
River Phoenix: Sigh, where is the coke I need to relax.

Me enjoying this film depends entirly on the mood I'm in, normally I need to be in sadistic cruel git mode and then this film gives off positives.

Rosberg was reminded of the fuel regulations by his wheel's ceasing to turn. The hollow noise from the fuel tank and needle reading zero had failed to convay this message
