Now you're gonna die, wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

This was a really good movie that had a decent crop of classic lines.

Quite possibly the only good thing Joel Schumacher has ever done in his life.

D-FENS is one of my favorite anti-heroes. Poor guy just wanted to see his daughter on her
birthday,but the world was dead set against it. Man,his wife was a cunt,too.
I don't know about you fellas,but I thought that chick that worked at the "Whammy burger" was hot. I'm whippin' up a batch of "special sauce" just thinking about her.

Iron Maiden's "Man On The Edge" is about this movie.
And a good movie it is.

Great movie. I saw it based solely on the tagline "I'm standing up for my RIGHTS .... as a consumer." which occurs right after he strafes the "Whammy Burger" with his semiautomatic.

That's definitely my favorite quote from the movie, and I cracked up after his whole rant leading up to that. It does get pretty serious further into the movie, and I found the backstory about his job in weapons interesting, actually. Also, I hated his wife, but the video at the end was kinda sobered me up.

I've heard those government issue specs referred to as 'bcgs', birth control glasses.

Wonderful movie, which is odd, considering it's a Schumacher vehicle. My favorite part was when the kid teaches him to fire the rocket launcher. Only in LA...

Great movie! I always laugh when Robert Duvall climbs up the hill and yells to the store owner, "D-FENS!"
I also love the look Michael Douglas gives when he is asked if can read what the graffiti on the wall says. "Maybe if you wrote it in fucking English I could fucking read it." Then he gives this smile. That look reminds me of being in school and the one kid in class who wasn't afraid to talk back to the teacher. He's so proud of what he just said, he almost can't believe he said it. Classic!

Great Movie that lets me 'live the fantasy' Lord know I don't know how many times I've dreamed of just whipping out a Magnum and ventilating some assholes head and making a rorshach with their brains... Sad tho how he became a "Bad Guy' and totally loses out in the end.

Joel Schumacher has in fact done two good things...Falling Down is one, D.C. Cab is the other. Schumacher is responsible for the whole of human misery, but I'll give him credit where it's due.
