Meep Pic Of The Week: Jade (1995)


Jade
From Paramount Pictures
Original Theatrical Release: October 13, 1995

I like Jade. Heck, I kind of love Jade. There. I said it. It's out there. Think what you want of me now.

I'll make this simple...

If you can't enjoy a Movie with a chase scene like this one, perhaps you should stop watching Movies and stick with the cartoons.



Jade Facts:

  • William Friedkin really knows how to direct a car chase.
  • Women have secret, slutty lives.
  • Governors, or politicians for that matter, also have secret, slutty lives.
  • Michael Biehn is in this Movie.
