Watched the movie "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" ("Womanizer" in German (?)) on the weekend, together with my wife. Most memorable are some quotes from Michael Douglas' character "Uncle Wayne", like that one (at a men's restroom):
"Whoa! Never touch a man while he's hanging a wire."
And of course another historical misinformation I noticed. The bride's father, "Sarge" (an ex-Marine), mentions something along the line that "the Korean War caused more American casualties than Vietnam", which is of course not true. Korea ranks #4 behind WW2 (#1), WW1 (#2) and Vietnam (#3) (and that only considering international conflicts, so this excludes the American Civil War). I whispered to my wife immediately, she nodded. She knows me well.
