I wish they had consulted with you on some of the details before production.

I too have a gripe about the historical accuracies of this movie.  If they had only consulted a Dentist like Michael or myself, they would never had made such a blatant mistake with regards to Ken Miles. His teeth weren’t nearly that nice, he was British you know.   ;D

You too, I thought it was something personal because they did not contact me for my car either.  On another note , I just saved a ton of money on my insurance, by switching to reverse and leaving the scene...

I think that there is some intended humor being portrayed? I'm not sure that this is the right audience for that?  :o

Beg to differ on this, lots of interest is stirring on this film. Especially from the younger crowds.
