Over the years, we've learned such important lessons: kitties can protect you from ancient curses, time is the fire in which we burn, and Kevin Costner looks really old when he's sopping wet. This year was no different. Aside from the obvious lessons such as "Don't make a Rocky and Bullwinkle movie" or "Let the damn Highlander series die," there were the smaller lessons. Here then is the summation of knowledge imparted to you this summer at your local multiplex.
