Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine56.6 - New Jersey is the only state where elected county officials are called "freeholders." Laurel's need for secrecy and privacy go out the window as she files with the Board of Freeholders to request her pension go to her legal domestic partner in the event of her untimely death. Only these frickin freeholders are the most arrogant, selfish, unenlightened, privileged bunch of white guys you've ever seen!

Minnesota Man50 - When the end credits Miley Cyrus song is the most memorable thing about the movie, you know there's a problem.
