"I'm not in pain, Father. I'm in hate. I hate Sarah, because she was a tart to your mumbo jumbo. I hate Henry, because she stuck to him. And I hate you and your imaginary god, because you took her away from us."
"You are a good hater."
"To hell with all of you!"

One of my fave phrases is "Nuke it from orbit." It's very useful. o_O I even have a "Keep calm and nuke it from orbit" shirt. Now it was high fucking time I saw the movie whence the quote came.

I didn't know it had been filmed in Antibes and other nearby places… But watching it, I thought "That looks like it could be the street down to that Antibes beach…" (it turned out that it wasn't far away) and "That place across the bay looks like it could be Villefranche…" (It turned out that it may well have been! And it was filmed only a short while after I took the pics in the links. :B )
16-Dec-2017: 37. The last Mimzy
I only watched it because of BRIAN GREENE'S CAMEO! ^_^
