No one was really sure what to think about Gangster Squad after the release date got
“Mmm’yeah, dame, you look like you could use a hug, see?”
“Hand ovah the wallet* on the double, or else I’ll fill ya fulla tickles! *I wanna monogram it for you.”
“You’ll never take me alive, coppah! In fact, I’ll drive us instead, that way you can have a drink. Go ahead, live it up, you deserve it for working so hard.”
“Oh, a wiseguy, eh? You must’ve studied pretty hard to be so smart. Here, have a bran muffin.”
“Your hands ain’t so clean! Here, try some lavender soap, girl.”
“I didn’t ask ya for any lip! Not on the first date. I respect your boundaries, girl. Care for some Grapefruit?”
“It was you, Fredo. You stole my heart. You’re the best goldfish ever.”
Jeez, this is fun. How about we make it a trending topic? #GangsterBabyGoose. Go.
Is it just me, or do Sean Penn’s prosthetics make him look sort of like Humphrey Bogart reupholstered with nutsacks?
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and–if he has his way–every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart. “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.

This is a banner I like to call “here’s the cast of Gangster Squad with some brown people who don’t deserve names.” If anyone ever listened to me about making the names correspond to the faces on movie posters, they wouldn’t have these kinds of problems.
