Barcelona - the movie

This quote is why Barcelona is such a good movie:

Woman: You can't say Americans are not more violent than other people.
Fred: No.
Woman: All those people killed in shootings in America?
Fred: Oh, shootings, yes. But that doesn't mean Americans are more violent than other people. We're just better shots.

And, of course, a relevant quote from a movie made almost 10 years ago:

Montserrat: I think you are too sensitive.
Fred: Oh great, now we're too sensitive.
Fred: I think it's well-known that anti-Americanism has its roots in sexual impotence, at least in Europe.

And ironically, Tushka Bergen, who played Montserrat, also acted in "Tanamera - Lion of Singapore", a 1988 mini-series about WWII.
