Atlas Shrugged: acid in her face

The following is my submission for the best sentence in a movie review ever.
``He must realize that the Taggart-Rearden "romance" is only romantic inasmuch as Rearden does not forcibly rape her or throw acid in her face upon what their lawyers deem satisfactory completion of coitus."
This sentence may be the only positive thing that has come of Ayn Rand's legacy. For the rest of the review of the movie Atlas Shrugged (from which this quote was shamelessly cribbed), see here.
The lines for the premiere in LA were apparently filled with 75-or-something objectivists, who are not bothered by the fact that this is likely a movie that is worse than Battlefield Earth. Normally, I like to see the movie before I hate it, but I, like the writer of the afore-linked review, refuse to pay to see it.

Just to clarify, Battlefield Earth was a documentary...so it's kinda apples to oranges.
