Anyone else think that the movie would have sucked balls if their was no John Bender. The question I often wonder is does John Bender come off as a complete asshole, or a necessity for personal growth. If someone doesn't question something it doesn't get re-examined. John Bender is probably the most honest, and blunt and without him no one would have learned shit all really. I'm going with a little of both, but lets face it he's the only reason we get to know the others.
