Well, or any movie Peter Sellers was ever in.

I read a biography of Sellers a couple years ago, and apparently the guy was some kind of accent savant - if he listened to you talk for even just a couple minutes he could mimic you perfectly, regardless of where you were from. And he could, from memory and at the drop of the hat, switch between the literally dozens of different English regional accents; one minute he'd be squawking like a Cockney, and the next he'd be droning on like he was from the Midlands.

Do you really want to defend his accent in The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu? Or even any of the '70s Pink Panther movies?

Well, by that time he was a pathetic drug addict.

So, I guess I should qualify my original statement and say, "any movie Peter Sellers was in prior to becoming a pathetic drug addict."

Thanks for the correction.

Did I see dinosaurs roaming around in the previews or am I imagining things?

You were not imagining things. Roland Emmerich? He's imagining things.

If there are dinosaurs in it, I hope they go the full distance with it and turn the entire movie into a propaganda film supporting creationism.

The movie's title is blasphemy. The earth is only 6,000 years old.
