Actually, a rather good film.

One of my favourite film quotes by far has to be:
Just call me Dad...

OK, so it needs the context of the film to set it up... :)




I maintain that ever taking a Devil's Advocate position is not just the epitome of lying, base, deceitful, rude, dull and treacherous.  It is also satanic and prone to Destroying Your Very Soul.  (Ok, I don't actually believe that, I'm just advocating it to see if anyone agrees or disagrees in an interesting way.)
(PeterTaylor) Au contraire, being able to argue a position both (or many) ways is a requirement for intellectual honesty.
Except for positions which have no valid supporting arguments.  Although the practice of inventing such arguments is an interesting and stimulating one.  "All clouds are purple"  --Vitenka

Devils advocates are extremely useful in a democracy. That's what the Tory party is for! -- King DJ
