really subby?

you think that there are people out there who don't know that Patrick Swayze and Jerry Orbach are dead?

/of course there are people in the world who wouldn't know, or wouldn't care that those two are dead... but to put that in your headline at Fark.com is asinine.

Unfortunately, we have learned that anyone involved with putting Baby in a corner, or even liberating her from said corner, will die of cancer.

Bottom line: when Baby is around, don't even farking think of a corner.

"Now, I'm going to tell you a little story today. It's a heartbreakingly sad story about a young woman whose life was completely destroyed by these instruments of fear. A young woman, searching for love in all the wrong places. Her name was Baby."

Jennifer Grey was so much cuter with her original nose.

I'm surprised to find out she was 27 when she played that 17 year old character, and that no one made a big deal about Johnny sleeping with an underage girl.

Baby was such a slut.

They should make another sequel where she finally bleeds out on her 14th abortion.

This may come off as news to you, but, some states have a 16 years old age of consent. I know, it's crazy out there.

You can raid high schools all across the South in search of that tasty tasty 16 years old pussy that smells like flowers and is tight and clingy without having cops on your tail trying to hitch you to the local PMITA.

It's a glorious thing indeed. Say what you want but nothing, absolutely nothing beats teen pussy and having a legal way to get it, it's just great.

That last picture? Most certainly was. He's been married to Cynthia Rhodes for 23 years now.

I always thought Cynthia Rhodes retired too soon. She was a bombshell, an incredible dancer, and could f*cking act. Not many who can brag the same.
 
2012-08-19 10:59:51 AM  
I saw Cynthia Rhodes a couple of years ago at a Richard Marx concert. If anything, she's more beautiful than when she was in this movie. Richard looks great, too. I don't know what they're doing, but it's farking working.

Your key word is "some". Even still, her father in the end was a little too forgiving that some summer dance teacher was boning his 17 year old daughter.

Ok, I understand this is just an entertainment news fluff piece. I also understand you can't put up a current photo of a person who has been dead for years. But it is inexcusably weak to use a 10 year old photo of someone who is still alive in a "where are they now?" piece.

You do realize 30 states have 16 as age of consent and a lot are up north and other states have 17 as legal so its not a huge difference.

I had no idea that Jerry Orbach was dead. As much as you see his face on TV because of reruns, I guess I just assumed he was still ticking.


Well it was big news back then and was even mentioned when swayze died.

Which makes WHY she retired all the more asinine. The work and sacrifice she put in for YEARS to hone her craft all gone in one gel-lensed moment when she and Dickie M. realized they were "in a family way". I will NEVER get that. Why is a child more important than a career? I'm not even trolling- serious question. And don't give me that "promulgating the species" horseshiat, either. There's plenty of less-talented mouth-breathers out there perfectly willing to f**k like rabbits and spew out miracle after miracle.

I can never get why Hollywood uses people in their mid to late 20's to play teenagers. Are there no 18-23 year olds who can act in LA? Just look at Glee. All of them are closer to their 30th birthday than they are to school.

Some people do place that priority on the raising of their children. From what I understand, she comes from a very close-knit Southern family. Priority is focused on the raising of children in that sort of environment. And I think it worked out beautifully for her. Her marriage is long-lived and strong, and all 3 of the Marx children are talented, well-adjusted kids with burgeoning careers of their own. It is sort of my specialist subject- my username is a reference to Richard Marx.

Except for two of the male leads, all of the students on Glee were 23 or younger when the show started. Most of the older ones have "graduated" now. And to answer your question: no, most 18-23 year olds are dreadful actors or if they have talent, they often prove to be unreliable because, well, because they are young and inexperienced and often can't handle the pressure. Better to hire someone with an actual track record and proven long range talent. Hiring an 18 year old Lindsay Lohan fresh off her success of Mean Girls would have seemed like a slam dunk idea for your movie back in 2004, wouldn't it?
