groppet: Del: You play with your balls a lot.
Neal: I do NOT play with my balls.
Del: Larry Bird doesn't do as much ball-handling in one night as you do in an hour!
Neal: Are you trying to start a fight?
Del: No. I'm simply stating a fact. That's all. You fidget with your nuts a lot.
Neal: You know what'd make me happy?
Del: Another couple of balls, and an extra set of fingers?


Perfect. I laugh so hard when I see this exchange.

jonathan_L: Goes to check Netflix...

Planes, Trains and Automobiles is not available to watch instantly. Add unlimited DVDs for only
$7.99 more a month.

goddamnitsomuch


I ran into this problem, too. I decided I should own it and went and bought it. Well worth it. We got the 'between 2 pillows' edition. HA!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles was a crap movie that marked the beginning of the death spiral of John Hughes' career.

There, I said it AND meant it.

ZMugg : How about Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS.

Hmmmmm. And what does erotically torturing Jewish women in concentration camps have to do with Thanksgiving?

Before I met my fiance' I'd never seen the movie, but it's a big Thanksgiving tradition at her house. It's an excellent 80's comedy. Totally hillarious and charming.

The movie sucked donkey balls from start to finish.

The correct answer is "Home for the Holidays".

The movie worked because of Candy and Martin. Downey and gallifinakis came close with Due Date but PT&A was just so much better.

Candy singing while driving was classic.

"The Mess Around"?

Yep, that was an AWESOME scene.

/oh, we just almost hit a deer. That's all

One of my favorite all-time comedies. I just had to purchase the Blu-ray immediately even though it was only available at Best Buy (yuck) and in DTS-MA instead of Dolby TrueHD.

Just the sheer amount of physical gags in the truck sequence always makes me laugh even a quarter century later...

The skeletons with eyeballs and hair.

The aforementioned Candy as devil.

Martin pulling his fingers out of the dashboard. Coupled with Candy and the bent forward steering wheel.

Plus I've had my own moments like Neal in the parking lot of the car rental place. Just cursing and throwing my arms in the air, though I've never followed it up by cursing a customer service rep...

Why don't you take a picture? It'll last longer.
 
2011-11-22 03:58:06 PM  
Ah, yes it was.

And it was the same day I popped my girlfriends Cinnamon donut....just thought I'd share that moment.

Before I clicked the link I said out loud, to no one in particular in my empty office, "Trains Planes and Automobiles".

Candy's speech at the end that brings Martin's character down a notch is perfect.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

And that speech isn't at the end. It's in the motel room in Kansas City, 1/3 the way in.

We were talking about Werewolf Women of the SS, and I was offering an alternative.

She tortured GUYS too.

You the shower curtain fella?

//The last thing I want to be remembered as is an annoying blabbermouth... You know, nothing grinds my gears worse than some chowderhead that doesn't know when to keep his big trap shut... If you catch me running off with my mouth, just give me a poke in the chops.......

You know... I really can't think of many Thanksgiving movies, period. You'd think there would be a TON of them and you could go anywhere with them: comedy or a drama would be the most obvious, but I"m sure you could get real creative.

There was one that I seem to remember that starred Steve Martin.

/can't think of the name

I was going to go with this one:

But I will accept your choice subby.....

Spanky3woods: She's skinny, but she's strong. Last baby came out sideways.


That line had me doubled over. I was laughing so hard, my girlfriend at the time thought I was possessed.

Just don't forget to tell her to git her skinny butt out of the truck to load those bags..

It's a Casio!

Finally got my regular Saturday night movie buds to watch it this year. One friend lost his wife about 5 years ago and I heard him give a sad gasp at the reveal in the end, at the train depot.

The rest of time they all loved it and busted a gut during the truck sequence.

I've never put anyone on ignore or favorite, but man, I've got my eye on you. I understand people having different tastes, but for the love of Mike, how could you say such a thing?

I'm not even trolling. I hated that movie. I was painful to watch. I have never understood why so many people love the snot out of that movie.

My favorite part:

"What do you think the temperature is?" .... "One."

I'd guess because most people have a sense of humor and a heart.

I just think that it is a very funny and well done movie.

You might want to watch it again...
