I hadn't mentioned that the quote I dropped was actually made in direct response to another users quote. I don't see anything malicious though and maybe when the user posted that comment 7+ years ago, the joke was understood by other users.

As an older than 7 year old, I can confirm that back then the joke may have flown over my head.

psst: it was made in reply to you! :o You were saying how much of the title you were able to translate from French - I think that's because it text that came after the titles and didn't rely on the French narration. But even with the context, it's seems to be an unhelpful non-sequitur.

Well if the body replaces its cells every 7 years, then that might not have been me.
Hope the pre-me wasn't saying something really stupid. :o

absolutely not: you just translated film intro text, thus why I thought the response so strange and out of place

Just when you're about to give up on this film, film as a medium, and life itself, Sam Elliot flashes us the top of his pubic hair and all is right again in the world.

A comment on the page for the Jean-Claude Van Damme action pic Knock Off (1998) had me chuckling:

“Did you ever think to yourself "I wanna see a movie directed by Tsui Hark and starring Jean-Claude Van Damme that revolves heavily around jeans counterfitting"? Well if so, you found your movie. And you need serious help”
I’m to remember every man I've seen fall into a plate of spaghetti???
