    It's obvious the same person wrote at least 2 reviews down below. I do respect waffle's opinion despite his personal vendetta against chris tucker. I enjoyed this book and it's a great guide to have on those boring rainy afternoons.

    Willie Waffle wants to be Roger Ebert, but isn¿t as compelling, tender, or emotional. Instead he is about 10,000 times creepier. Plus he's super fat and super smells like taco salads.

    Laugh-Out-Loud Funny!

    I just received this as a gift, and it's a great, humorous resource for movies you might not think about first when visiting the video store or scanning those on-demand listing on cable. A lot of the review had me laughing out loud. I always enjoy reading his current reviews online. A great resource for your film library.

    A Wonderful Resource

    Willie Waffle is one reviewer I can trust--he has never steered me wrong. I listened to him on radio for years when he did a Friday afternoon talk show spot, recommending Back Shelf Beauties to rent for the weekend--every one I tried was a gem. This book is a must for movie buffs everywhere.

    A gem about neglected gems

    Movie critic Willie Waffle has produced a delightful guide for people who want to get past the "new releases" shelf at the video store and find something that may have missed the multiplex. Waffle's astonishing range and engaging descriptions make this book an indispensible reference and as much fun as the movies he writes about.
