Can't believe I forgot

A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN John Lovitt just about steals the movie in the first 15 minutes. "I don't want you. I want her. She hit the ball" "OK cowgirls, there's the grass don't eat it." "Boo Hoo, yes I've got to go home and give the wife a little pickle tickle then it's back on the road"

Love his facial expressions, especially when he lays eyes on Marla Hooch. More memorable lines....

"Eyebrows there should be two"
"There's no crying in baseball"

I was the only one to mention Money Pit? Tom Hanks' antics with that farking house put me in tears every time I watch that movie. Maybe it's linked to my thinking that The Big Lebowski, was only moderately amusing.
2002-01-25 04:57:49 PM  
2002-01-25 05:59:37 PM  
The Jerk!! too farkin funny.
2002-01-25 06:43:05 PM  
maybe i missed it, but where is "army of darkness"? hmm?

2002-01-25 06:46:38 PM  
How do you qualify these films? Does a comedy that wasn't as funny as other comedies but a better film than most make it on there, or is it based on humour alone? Anywho, here's my list;

-The Big Lebowski (screw you if you hate this film, just screw you)
-The Jerk (The hardest I've laughed in my whole life)
-The Toxic Avenger (if just for some of the screams and the guys doing situps and passing a joint)
-Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (If you don't thibnk it's funny, you haven't done enough drugs... c'mon, it has Johnny Depp acting like a cross between your most nightmarish phys ed teacher and Popeye for crying out loud!)
-Being John Malkovich ("...that c*nt at reception")

Almost but not quite;
The Monty Python movies - Hilarious, yes, but I've seen them way to many times.
Kevin Smith movies - Whenever I wach one of those films I can't help thinking about Chasing Amy... nuff said.
The Wayne's World fimls - Great at the time, but have not aged quite so well, still good though.
Seven - I laughed so hard, but then everyone I knew refused to talk to me anymore, this film ruined my life!
2002-01-25 07:07:07 PM
