This is a clever idea, especially since the editors here have chosen the more humorous entries for this book. So Jaws, among other things, is "Eat Ship and Die" while The Bourne Identity is "One Bourne, Many Die". There's about 170 pages of this. It makes for a good bathroom book, something you sit and flip through for a few minutes.
I had two major issues with the book. One is that the people who composed the reviews often fell back on referencing another role by a particular actor, and while I always got the reference, sometimes it wasn't the role the actor is most closely identified with...it was just something that fit in some way. The other quibble is more serious, in that some of the movies here are so obscure that no one's ever heard of them. I get why Gone With the Wind and Star Wars are here, but some slasher flick no one's ever seen is a bit much, and a short student film that not even no one's seen? Come on...
Other than that, it was a fun book. Recommended.

This is one of the most fun books you'll ever read. And you don't even need to read it in order. Pick a film genre you like, and flip over to it and see what's what. Read morePublished on May 25, 2013 by Amazon Customer
