If you get an opportunity to see this in your area, please do so.

Easily one of my favorites of the year.

My friends and I in our middle/high school years would bum-rush each other pretending to hit the other in the knee with an imaginary lead pipe and they would fall down and shout WHYYYYYYYYYYYY MEEEEEEEEEEE over and over again until it stopped being funny, which was never.

I can't wait for this movie.

You should have lived in Boston then, you might still be laughing. Nancy Kerrigan is from a town near Boston, and this story was headline local news for weeks. I can't believe how many times I've seen that clip, and said those words, but you're right, every fucking time it's fucking hilarious.

I still have the 25th Anniversary Penthouse with her triangle tits wedding night photos. Unfortunately so do many others as even eBay has it at only around $25. Will nothing I hold on to ever have any decent value?

Someone recap the first three minutes of the movie, because all I got was audio sans picture until some idiot employee managed to fix it. Picture came up when four-year-old Tonya was skating for the first time.

And, I'm sorry, but no matter how genetically-blessed Margot Robbie is, seeing her playing Tonya beginning at age FIFTEEN (replete with braces) was about as convincing as those episodes of Friends where we'd flash back to the characters as teenagers.

Damn good movie despite the technical fuck-ups and questionable age ranges, though.

I watched it. Sorry, I do not remember the first 4 minutes all that well other than some fake interviews being given by the major players.

I was entertained. Also enjoying the Sufjan Stevens songs. Is it a coincidence that these were released around the same time? I figured I'd hear the song in the credits, alas, no.
