by Michael Lipp - Jan 3, 2017

In this day, however, the frothy silliness is almost realistic, since part of the plot revolves around hysterical celebrity-worship. Is that young man really Public Enemy Number One? Grab a selfie with him before the police get him! Wait, he's not a famous criminal? Well, then, get him out of our way! (more...)
