Below are just a few of my favorites.
The Untouchables (1987) – Al Capone (Robert De Niro) is having dinner with his fellow gangsters, and gets up with a baseball bat, and says “Nothing is more important than the team!” Then proceeds to bash in the skull of a warehouse manager, who’s spot was raided by the police – OUCH!
When Harry Met Sally (1989) – Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan eating in a cafe, and Ryan goes into an uncontrollable imitation of an orgasm…just classic!
9 1/2 Weeks (1986) The scene with Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke in front of the refrigerator, dripping everything from cherries, to egg yolk, to cough syrup – YUMMY!
I’ll be running this contest through Monday, June 15th. Have fun with it and good luck!

More about Food, Inc.
In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that’s been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of e coli – the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield Farms’ Gary Hirschberg and Polyface Farms’ Joe Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising – and often shocking truths – about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.
