    For a bearded lady, she’s ain’t half bad. Plus, if you can score some nair, then it’ll all be peach fuzz after that.

    Why for the love of God did they have to put a romance thing between Madame Tosca and Crepsley? I really and truly hope it doesn’t overshadow this film…I hope I don’t choke on my popcorn if they kiss.
