Best quote: 'The thing about you kids is that you're all kind of insensitive. I'm glad I grew up when I did cuz your parents are too perfect at parenting- all that baby Mozart and Dan Zanes songs; you're just so sincere and interested in things! There's a confidence in you guys that's horrifying. You're all ADD and carpal tunnel. You wouldn't know Agoraphobia if it bit you in the ass, and it makes you mean. You say things to someone like me who's older and smarter with this light air... I'm freaked out by you kids. I hope I die before I end up meeting one of you in a job interview.' - 'Greenberg'
2. Chris TuckerOh, look, it's Chris Tucker ! You have definitely watched him as the Detective James Carter in the “Rush Hour” film series. The third movie, by the way, made him the highest paid actor in Hollywood during that time, with a salary of $25 million.
