I thought he was in prison for murdering his girlfriend back in the 1970s.

Dear God, that makes me feel so old.

I can't say I don't wish we could get one more sequel, though.

I wish they'd take the first sequel back.  It jumped the shark before the opening credits were over.

My favorite part though is when he is "birthed" from the rhino.  God it's so funny.

Yeah, that part's funny.  And his fight with Tommy Davidson's pretty good.  The movie went way high and right from the first though, sort of parodied itself.

This. It's only 18 years old: there's a decade's worth or more of Farkers who would have watched this as children.

I watch it every Super Bowl Sunday morning.  Holds up better than most movies of the era.

I can look back now and see that it wasn't as good, but plenty of the gags are still amazing.

Back in 1998 when I was an intern in the IT department at a mid-sized regional company in North Carolina, the resident Lotus Notes programmer, aged in her mid-40's, one day lamented that she turned on the oldies station on the way to work and, lo and behold, a song from the 1970's was playing.  Her objection was that oldies music wasn't from the 1970's, only 1964 and earlier.  Why on earth would the oldies station play something from when she was 16 years old?  My immediate thought, which I did not speak aloud because I was the lowest of the low on the totem pole, was: "It's because you're old now."

Fast forward to present day, and I'm the VP of a mid-sized regional company in Maryland, finding myself in her shoes.  The current cutoff for acceptably modern pop culture references seems to be around the time period Zoolander was made.  Anything older than that and I get a puzzled look, followed by the nod and fake smile from our interns that means "I don't know what you're referring to, but I'm sure it was worth talking about when you were my age, which was at least 10 years ago."

Well, time for another beer before I crawl into bed and pull the sheets over my head before cry myself to sleep.

The oldies station here was playing "Take on me" by A-Ha the other day. That really depressed me for a few minutes

Being 40 I don't bother with pop culture references at work because all my employees are in their twenties and from another country.  As for my friends in their twenties - most of them are geeks - so I can get away with geek references going back 25 years.  But forget anything else.

My college roommate had more than a passing resemblance to young Jim Carrey, and when he dressed as Ace Ventura (hair and all) for Halloween it went beyond cool to downright scary.

Our classic rock and "new"/alt rock stations' playlists have started overlapping over the last few years (Nirvana, Alice in Chains, etc.).

/ Says more about the "new" rock station, imo

I taught first-year undergrads this summer, and they weren't getting Season 10 Simpsons references.  That was a depressing realisation.
