New Tia Clara Part II

It's official: Tía Clara has been dethroned by New Tía Clara.
Talking about why I didn't like Public Enemies:

It lacks the pizazz of Bonnie & Clyde, an incredibly violent movie that kind of wrote the book on the American love affair with violence.
New Tía Clara:
Bonnie & Clyde is not so violent. She steals the police car and all, but that's about it.
Bonnie & Clyde created a new standard of glorified, operatic violence. And at least you could tell that Warren Beatty and Fay Dunaway got a kick out of it.
New Tía Clara:
Isn't Bonnie & Clyde that movie where the little old woman falls in love with the young man?
Me (after gasping in sheer amazement):
That's Harold & Maude.
