    Ya all can call me "Swinging Todd" or "Jack The Ripper" then. :eek:

    For many little innocent puppies aren't going to make it. :sneaky:

    Hot dogs anyone? :whistle:

    Swinging Todd is a euphemism for his genitalia.

    I couldn't remember his name exactly, so I started to type it out in Google. Ironically even YouTube has a trailer listed for the movie as "Swinging Todd". But looking at the DVD now up close.... You'd be right.

    Google, why have you pointed me in the wrong direction?! LOL :ROFLMAO:

    I don't know why "swinging" made sense to me... I guess its because he does "swing" at his victims. :confused:

    It's one of my daughter's favourite films :D She's a sucker for musicals heh heh heh.. and the fact it's the gorgeous Johnny Depp doesn't make me hate it either...

    I normally dislike musicals. I'm likely one of the few people who isn't a big fan of "The Sound of Music" (its OK, I guess). But the story line and acting in Sweeney Todd was good enough for me to buy the movie.

    When I first watched it, I didn't know it was going to be a musical. Boy, was I surprised. And to be very honest, I felt disappointed at first when learning that fact, but got sucked into the movie.

    Don't get woman swooning at Johnny Depp. He's kind of smallish. Penelope Cruz had the right build to impersonate him as Jack Sparrow. Doesn't that say it all?

    Never seen Sweeney Todd. Didn't know there's a Jack the Ripper musical, though that's a bit morbid... I enjoy Phantom of the Opera whenever it comes to the area, once every decade or so.

    Sorry, you referring to the man's stature or something else?

    He's 5'10.. that's much taller than me. Penelope Cruz is 5'6...... there's clearly a difference in build, but it being Pirates of the Caribbean, you have to suspend belief :)

    And he's beautiful, so who cares :D

    5'10 is short. And if Cruz (Penelope, not Victor) is shorter but with the same stature, seems like thats even worse. :ROFLMAO:

    He's taller than I am, so it's all good :)

    What is swinging todd....

    After a little bit of research, he's only 5' 7. When the studio did a casting call for photo doubles for PotC 3, they listed him 5'9, in costume. That included the boots.

    I love the internet. There's nothing that can't be found.

    I remember Valeria Golino being very popular with men including myself a long time ago. She still looks excellent for her age.

    She looked great in Hot Shots if I am thinking of the same woman.
