I don't get why just because people say stupid things about Shatner, it becomes necessary to insult Nimoy. Sorry, I just don't see the logic behind that (to use the magic word, but it's true).
And I agree with monetteman on all points.
And btw, I'd have alcohol over food any day. Must be a matter of perspective.
On a more serious note, I don't think that Shatner's being a bit chubby has anything to do with him not being in this movie.
