My Fair Lady

  1. The main reason I watched this one was because of its influence on ‘Family Guy,’ especially re: Stewie. And holy crap, does McFarlane ever do a bang-on Henry Higgins impression! But apart from enjoying that aspect, I found this movie pretty fluffy and inessential. And it has no business on Earth running three hours!
