like, once you lose all the inside jokes, hidden references to other films (goodfellas, taxi driver & john woo films being the most obvious)...what are you left with?

there IS a plot, albeit a bit scatterd (and no i dont say that just cuz the movie's timeline is out of order)...and some really funny lines...but it just doesnt feel the same anymore.

kinda like, when you were in high school and you heard such-and-such music and thought it was SOOOO profound and meaningful, and now 10 yrs later you listen to it and its just corny genarlized lyrics that anyone could have written.

*shrugs* I still watch it...i still bought the dvd, but its more out of nostalgia than anything...on the other hand a film like 'goodfellas' i've seen as much as PF (if not more) and i still love every scene, shot, and line to death.
