    Me likey too. Rotten Tomatoes critics score: 27%. Audience score 64%. What critics tell us they like != what people actually like.

    As the article points out we've rolled out the red carpet for far worse. What a pointless waste of time debate. Chances of the invitation being withdrawn are exactly 0. Just anti-trump bandwagon jumpers and those silly enough to bother to debate it with them, all of whom seem to have nothing better to do.

    If the plebs had voted the way they were told, there'd be no need to get parliament involved. Get the irony?

    The smoking ban might not have affected some businesses so bad, I'll take people's word for it. But in the UK it correlates closely with the demise of the pub. Half of them are gone. It'll be like that here too. More people will just go home. Or stand around in smoking areas with a can from the combini.

    Let people do what they want. Have some non-smoking places, let consumers decide if they prefer to be there. No need for the government to get involved. No need to change the law for the sake of two weeks in 2020.

    And Charlton did it from midfield. When it really mattered, in three World Cups, Rooney did as well as Matthew Upson, with 1 goal. Only took Upson one World Cup though.

    Those who have been arrested will be singing like canaries to avoid big jail time and it won't be long before Blatter is in the dock

    I'd rather see it done with hard evidence. Maybe Blatter deserves it but the idea of the US being able to subject anyone, anywhere, to their plea-bargaining based justice system, which is not allowed in many countries, is frightening.

    Most boring premier league season ever. I completely lost interest in it weeks ago. The quality is also pretty average as demonstrated by English teams in the champions league. Hard to understand its global appeal and the size of the new TV deal given what's on offer.

    Still the American system is based on the concept of avoiding the innocent being jailed

    Thanks for the laugh.

    In which country? They were always released in May in the US.. June in the UK. I queued around the block.. maybe for three hours or so. Remember the poster too... and my Return of the Jedi sticker album. Those were the days.

    Interesting to listen to Abrams talk.. he didn't quite come out and say the prequel trilogy was crap but he implied it. Looks like Star Wars is in safe hands this time.

    I think he couldn't be more wrong, being constantly connected to the Internet is making us smarter.

    Some studies have linked smartphone usage with increased brain activity. Any students with a smartphone would have been able to check that out instantly and call BS.

    Am I the first poster here to point out the irony of Americans taking interest in 'soccer' affairs?

    For the last world cup, more tickets were sold in the US than any country other than the hosts, Brazil. US TV audiences for world cup games are now comparable to the likes of Germany and England but increasing all the time. When FIFA is finally sorted out, the US is likely to become one of the most influential countries when it when it comes to 'soccer affairs'.

    I'm glad the kids and the people with kids are OK with the word. If I had kids I'd probably have to be too. Other choices would be to be really angry all the time.. or to try and alter people's sensitivities to this in Japan (futile).

    This is about as serious a hacking incident as the time I made the classroom BBC micro display a message telling one of my mates he's a wanker in primary school.

    Yeah, when I first came here I used to miss some of the delicacies of British cuisine such as beans on toast, monster munch sandwiches and the chip butty. I think it was good to wean myself off that stuff though.

    Well done to Welbeck. He was shown the door so they could bring in an expensive import and he's come back to show them they were wrong. Welbeck is easily good enough to contribute what Falcao or Van Persie have done this season.

    @USNinJapan

    When a United player gets sent off you often say things like "effectively decided the outcome". I remember you said the same when Nani was sent off against Real Madrid. Did you know that sometimes teams adjust their tactics and can still will, or not lose, despite being down to 10 men?

    Japan's obsession with humanoid robots is very quaint. In an age of self-driving cars and drones they're painting cute faces on toys and calling them robot astronauts. Good photo op I suppose, but come on its been done to death already.
