TRUE “Why work hard to get something when you know you can get it an easier way.”

False everyone given a chance can change no matter who they are or who they were!

Once a crook?

People can change - although not everyone.

Times change, people don't

You can’t really ever change your past, so if at one time you ever were a crook you technically will always have that. I think a person can stop doing the actions, but it is very hard and very unlikely for most people. It takes more than just the individual.

Once a crook, always a crook is...

sometimes false. It all depends on whether or not the crook had something that made him-or-her decide to change.

Rehabbed crook?

In the case of Gekko, I doubt anything will truly change him. Still, within the boundaries of a fictional setting, you gotta love a character like him. In the real world, it would seem some people benefit from being caught and rehabbed to use their deceptions for the common good. After all, that was the point of the real Frank Abagnale, Jr.’s story (depicted in Spielberg’s biopic, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN). He was caught and paradoxically, the forgery skills that got him busted now have him working as one of the top anti-forgery experts.

A Leopard Does Not Change Its Spots

In my experience, true. A person’s character does not change.

False. I believe people can

False. I believe people can change but they have to want to change. Usually something drastic will occur that will cause someone to change in a blink of an eye. Yes, it is hard for someone to break bad habits but anything is possible for those who believe! :)

False..I hope

I’m guessing it’s true in most cases but I’m hoping it’s false at least once in a while. I’d like to think some people do not stay the idiots they were in their youth.

True

True - there is power in being able to take advantage of others, and power is quite addicting.

  • Happy Christmas

    CHICAGO – “Drinking Buddies” director Joe Swanberg’s latest release of the same star wattage is “Happy Christmas,” an even lower-fi story than the Olivia Wilde beer comedy, steered even more by the casting that it was able to assemble. However, with this movie Swanberg doesn’t so much worry about having a story that could be confused with a more mainstream romantic comedy if it were to have a bigger budget.

  • reno 911 front.png

    CHICAGO – The oughts was the era of the workplace mock-doc comedy, with shows like “The Office” and “Reno 911!” born into a time where TV viewers were excited to see see fake realities about the crumminess of a job. While this series has been available in separate season collections previously, “Reno 911!” is now available in a complete series set, one that boasts a grand amount of special features content in spite of some lacking comedy in the actual show.
