Hey, I hate to be that guy. I really do. I hear what you’re saying, but I’m just going to have to play Devil’s Advocate here, because it’s movie night and it’s the only DVD I own.

Sure, sure. That’s a good point.

Maybe, though, you could listen to what I’m actually saying and just open up your mind a bit. Do you think you can do that? Because these are the opening credits for The Devil’s Advocate.

See how Al Pacino has top billing? That’s just a fact. Sorry.

If you’re going to be petty about this, we just shouldn’t talk. And maybe we shouldn’t anyway, because the movie has pretty much started.

It’s not polite to talk during a film, that’s just what I’m saying. That’s all.

Nobody is going to argue that point with you. In fact, all I’m doing is putting in my DVD copy of this 1997 supernatural thriller starring Al Pacino, Keanu Reeves, and Charlize Theron, and pressing play. It’s nothing personal.

That’s right, Charlize Theron is in this. People don’t bring that up, but she is.

Alright, that’s just an ad hominem attack — the last refuge in a losing argument.

Also, it doesn’t matter why it’s my only DVD. It just is.

Maybe if you think I shouldn’t be playing Devil’s Advocate, a film currently ranked 63% Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes, but you really should come up with a better argument for that. I’m just playing it because someone has to.

And yes, that’s the principal from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
