It's sad that a movie like that could not be made today...

It could, but it would be on Vimeo and YouTube, not theaters and TV.

I'll be here if you need me...

/but I probably won't get credit for it

I'd say you boys have had enough!

Funniest interracial buddy comedy EVER! I still laugh.
 
2014-02-07 08:12:23 PM

weird, man. that's weird.

I consider this the greatest movie ever made.

There, I said it.

Mongo have feelings for Sheriff Bart.


MONGO STRAIGHT.

"Now who can argue with that? I think we're all indebt to Gabby Johnson for stating what needed to be said. I am particulary glad that these lovely children are here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed the courage little seen in this day and age. "

Well somebody's gonna have to go back and get a whole SHIATload of dimes!

Flappyhead: Excuse me while I whip this out.


As funny as that line is, it's the old lady in the crowd screaming and passing out on hearing it, that always busts me up.

"A man who drinks like that and doesn't eat is going to die."

"...when?"

A lot of movies couldn't get made today.

Funniest part of that is the comment section.  Evidently NPR's filters were deleting a lot of comments for being offensive--- Comments where people were quoting the movie.

"There I was, standing face to face, with a six-year old kid. Well, after that, I just threw down my gun and walked away. Little bastard shot me in the ass."

I used to have email from my boss play "Work, work, work" leaving the "hello boys I missed you" part off so I could keep my job.

Not just interracial buddy, but interracial cop buddy genre. There could be no Lethal Weapon or Die Hard 3 without Blazing Saddles. Or maybe there could, I don't know, I'm not too hot on the buddy movies of the late 70's and 80's.
 
2014-02-07 08:53:31 PM  
You know, morons.
 
2014-02-07 08:53:56 PM  
"You said rape twice!"

"I like rape".

... and thus was a Fark meme born.

What's a number six?

Play chess, screw.

Let's pay chess.

Men, you are about to embark on a great crusade to stamp out runaway decency in the west. Now you men will only be risking your lives, whilst I will be risking an almost certain Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
 
2014-02-07 09:08:20 PM  
I'd give it "first interracial buddy comedy". The first interracial buddy movie was The Defiant Ones.

stoli n coke: "There I was, standing face to face, with a six-year old kid. Well, after that, I just threw down my gun and walked away. Little bastard shot me in the ass."


"How's that hand look?"

"Steady as a rock."

"Yeah but I shoot with this one."

That's where we go into town, a ridin and a whoopin every living thing within an inch of its life. Except the women folk of course

 My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
