I don’t watch my movies. I just get too critical of myself.

  1. I loved the Rescuers and John Candy but never knew he was a voice! Jeez – I was robbed! Cool Runnings, Uncle Buck and Volunteers were my favourites.. but I’d watch any film any time. He’s another loss I haven’t got over just like Freddie Mercury
