    Best thing: Delroy Lindo is always brilliant regardless of the quality of the production he is part of. I may have first seen him in Danny Boyle's A Life Less Ordinary as an angel/debt collector.

    I know that Neve Campbell and Courtney Cox were considered big names at the time, but to be quite frank they aren't any more. And that's not…
