He should have worn black silk stockings with his capris or knickers or whatever they are and no shirt under his jacket and a purse necklace instead of the shopping bag lol

He looks ridiculous though. The bag, :huh: The blouse? Come on dude, you're looking like a teenage Posh spice. :slinkaway

I'm sure Johnny chose the outfit precisely to provoke discussion. . .I think he's a total attention junkie but he's sure making it work for him

^ It's too bad that he couldn't provoke discussion with an outfit that actually looked good on him. I wouldn't mind the girly look if the proportions were right.

:rofl: It's so true. I think the hair really does it, especially the piece that's separated oh-so-carefully away from the others to fall over his forehead.

Johnny makes me feel so lazy when it comes to being tiffed. :slinkaway

I and a bunch of FSU'ers saw it this morning at the VIFF. I thought it was pretty good--basically an extended fluff piece. I enjoyed all the practice session footage, the relationship between Johnny and his coach, and the comments from other skaters/bigwhigs in the skating community.

My favourite scene was the one involving Johnny and an East European hotel staff person. I thought it was funny because broken english is always funny, the staff person obviously meant well (she seemed like a very nice lady), but it also showed how pressure-packed Johnny's life is. That, and the scene of Johnny at the press conference of 2007 US Nationals.

I did *not* enjoy Peter. I also don't have a huge amount of sympathy for the "My private life is my private life" BS, esp. when you're having cameras follow you around to make a movie about yourself.

I immediately thought you meant our Peter G. and wondered what on earth did he do?

And I agree that the film was an extended fluff piece. Enjoyable but I didn't get the feeling that the film-maker really made an effort to know or reveal Johnny. Not much depth.

I enjoyed the scenes with Priscilla the most.

Johnny's best friend and his sidekick in the film.

I Googled this useless leech and discovered his MySpace page, on which he lists his occupation as "celebutante". Delusional much? :rolleyes:

OK, that's a bit harsh. I don't really think it's fair to call a guy a "useless leech" because you didn't like the little bit you saw of him in a film.

Paris is Johnny's best friend and so I would imagine Johnny wanted him to appear in the documentary with him. But that doesn't mean he lives off of Johnny - he has a "regular" job and supports himself. He and Johnny were roommates when they first moved from Delaware to New Jersey but Paris moved into his own apartment a while back.

People post all kinds of funny things about themselves in their Facebook profiles - the "celebutante" label is obviously a joke.
