"How did it feel, strapping that thing to your back and flying like a bat out of hell?"
"Well, it's the closest I'll ever get to heaven, Mr. Hughes."
What an exciting, uncynical, legitimately fun this movie still is, 22 years after the fact.

I think that maybe the best part of this incredible film is Jon Brion's drum-heavy build-up to the phone call between Sandler and PSH. It knows how explosive the call is, and it knows how explosive we want the call to be.
My God, what a movie.
