This isn't a duplicate, but it is a "woops!" review and I think we can all agree we should try to limit the number of threads benj needs to read in order to find out about these.

I admit math is not my best subject, but I'm pretty sure that Chopper's review of "Escape to Victory" is more than four words...

All Chopper's review would need is a well placed hyphen.

I suppose...but that brings up the issue of whether proper use of the hyphen has been consistantly enforced here. I don't believe it has.

On this particular review, I don't know if it's proper or not. American Heritage dictionary says it's two words, while Merriam-Webster has it hyphenated. But I do know that overall, there are a large number of questionable hyphens on this site.

In the Collins English Dictionary, it is two separate words when used as a noun, and it is hyphenated when used as an adjective.

Actually, it's always a noun phrase, but yes, it should indeed be hyphenated when it is modifying another noun.

That would make the hyphen a correct use in this case.

Good review, though.

Thanky Bife.

Benj,

I just noticed noticed this review, "Hairy Carrey rather scary." under the 1966 animated How the Grinch Stole Christmas 'film' as opposed to the Jim Carrey dealio.

WHAT ABOUT THAT ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR THING I'VE BEEN CARPING ABOUT????? (Oops, sorry, didn't mean to yell -- there's an airplane passing overhead.)

"Jerry mocks the retarded" is clealy a reference to "The Nutty Professor (1963)" since Jerry Lewis was not in "The Absent-Minded Professor".

WAIT!! I just now noticed that the reviewer in question was just baiting me: Clearly he knows that Jerry Lewis was in "The Nutty Professor" since he has posted "Lewis mocks the retarded" for that film. He even posted "The retarded mock Lewis" for the remake! (The latter review of which needs votes people!!)

Now I feel like mocking Fred MacMurray! Arrrrrgh!

He says much the same thing in his Guide to Frickin Flame English
