I enjoed Melvin Goes to Dinner more than you did, but then I'm a huge mark for Bob O. I even dig his beer commercials. Anyway, interesting fact about "Melvin": I gave a copy to Sweet Meat for Xmas, and, yes, he claims to have "shed a tear" toward the end.
Wait a minute, that's not really intersting, is it? Sweet Meat's tearful movie experiences officially stopped being noteworthy sometime after tears welled up during "Earnest Goes to Africa."
Oh well, I hear that the pretty chicks dig it, anyway.
