You see, Hopsi, you don't know very much about girls. The best ones aren't as good as you probably think they are and the bad ones aren't as bad. Not nearly as bad.

Agreed on Jonzzzzzz, but that doesn't mean you should reward the guy who made Bedazzled and Analyse This or That over the genius and sheer foreignness of Von Trier...
