I Pulled a Darren Today

One of the pilots comes in and bets me I haven't seen his favorite movie of all time and he's right. It's The Man Who Would Be King and I haven't seen it (though it is in the Netflix queue.)

So I'm like... "What is that: 1975?"
And the CFO says "Richard Burton?"
"Right, Richard Burton," I say.
"No," says the pilot, "It's Michael Caine, and..."
"Sean Connery," I say. "Richard Burton is in The Man Who Came in from the Cold."
"It's The Spy Who Came in from the Cold not The Man Who Came in from the Cold," says my boss.
"Oh yeah, it's The Man Who Came to Dinner," I say, laughing ...and then I say "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?"

And I knew I had taken it too far.
