Director Richard Elfman and star Casper Van Dien bring us a fun, and lively, track. It is rather dated, given the films' release date of 1998, as there are references to Casper's new feature, "Sleepy Hollow" (1999). Richard is ever playful with his leading star, frequently ribbing him for how much a "ladies man" Van Dien is on screen, and behind the scenes. Casper would deliver roses to all the actresses, and, according to Richard, caught the fancy of both Natasha Gregson Wagner, and Kim Cattrall. Elfman loves to point out the many appearances of his own car, as well as his heavily made up hands. The stories about Rod Steiger are "classic," especially his more improvised moments, e.g. spitting in Robert Pastorelli's face. The track devolves into a "mutual admiration society" meeting, but the pair have good intentions. For tales about the "Chateau Marmont" alone, this track is worth the price of admission. The additional repartee, often politically In-correct, is just gravy. 7/10
