Guilty Pleasure: Nick Cage in Con Air



Yup. I know it's cheesey as all-git-out, but sometimes there is such a staggering degree of cheese-dom-- sometimes the cheese meter pegs so hard that the cheese turns into a loop that wraps plumb back around into splendidness. Such is the cheese of Con-Air.

The bounding insanity of the superb Steve Buscemi must be mentioned here, too.

*SQUEAL* Just found this little nugget: Why Kathleen Turner hates Nick Cage and Burt Reynolds. Tres dishy. Kinda bitchy. All good.

A clear example of why you should never mess with a man's bunny.

Is the bunny a metaphor for something else or am I looking too deeply?
Great find, phlegmmy!
Have you ever seen Nick Cage in "Face off"? It's an example of the cheese meter pegging so hard it ALMOST wraps back around, but instead just get cheesier and gives you gas. Which is OK when it's a lazy Sunday and it's just you and the couch.

I love to read Kathleen Turner dishing the dirt on one of the most detestable actors in the biz: Nicholas Cage. Ms. Turner has definitely gone up a notch in my book of stars.

It doesn't matter how many times "Con Air" is on I just have to watch at least the bunny scene. I mean he wants his daughter to have that bunny no matter that it looks like it went through hell when she does get it.

Cheesy - yeah, but very cool.
