Other Notes: The Big Cheesy, am I right? I’m not sure which movie was worse, this or Point Break. It’s a close one. I lost count of how many different accents were going on. Quaid’s guy-liner was ugh, and Barkin’s district attorney was just another silly woman who couldn’t stay away from the idiot, despite her important job. The best part of this film was Grace Zabriskie, who took her role seriously and her accent and crazy eyes to another level.
