    Yea, I’m right there with you on Triplets. Though a part of me wants to see an older Schwarzenegger and DeVito bicker with each other. Eddie Murphy’s involvement just makes me confused and makes me think of the word, trainwreck.

    Hmm…not sure about Triplets. I thought Twins was funny but not huge on sequels. Never been able to get into Bones but good for the cast and crew.
