For me, Benny & Joon is a movie that I don't actually enjoy the parts without Johnny. Like the first half hour (or however long before Sam shows up) I usually skip. I consider it one that I only watch for him. But it's not like some of his 'bad' films that I REALLY am only watching for the sake of Johnny, (Ninth Gate, Nick of Time, uhh... Private Resort, which I haven't actually seen ) because Sam is adorable and he's an amazing character and performance
It's a bit convoluted, but I have been a long, long time fan of Tom Waits, who was in the film At Play in the Fields of the Lord, and Aiden Quinn was also in that, and I thought then that he was a good character actor. by the way if you haven't seen, At Play, directed by Hector Babenco, and with John Lithgow and Tom Berenger, it is really worth watching, a beautiful film, another one of those that died pretty much without trace, because it wasn't flavour of the month...... but I digress

Thanks for this thread! I usually post over at DI. I never noticed the message board here - duh. These pictures are great for the collection I have for the inspiration of fan fiction. Sam Lovers Unite!
