Should have been Colt .45 Malt Liquor. The brutha's drink of choice.

Ha,ha Budweiser and  Stolichnaya  doesn't want a negative image? As if their clientele hasn't already done that ?

I wanted out of Flight 30 minutes into it.   Cliched and overwrought.

If you can buy a bud on a plane it should be ok to have it on an airplane in a movie, I'm just sayin.

I wish they'd take themselves out of the beer store.
