They should have done two different dive bar rooms and skipped the arcade.

I'm pretty sure my mother in law had the sofa in the "rec room".

Usually you need a black light to spot the nasty farkstains in motel rooms. Usually...

I came to post that Blue Velvet is the entire reason that PBR became a hipster beer. Well played.

I'm 47 and I've never heard of Midnight Madness, that does not look like a Disney film in any way. It's got Michael J Fox and Paul Ruebens?!

I would need and a cowboy hat and a rhinestone shirt first.

This was an early Disney PG-rating, which appears to have been their attempt at an Animal House type movie (it even has Stephen Furst). Prior to release, they removed the Disney label. They only recently started started claiming ownership after the movie ended up developping a cult following. In a nutshell, it's about an all night scavenger hunt. Paul Reubens is just a cameo. A very young pre-Family Ties Michael J Fox was hired because they needed a somebody who could pass for 13, but was at least 18 so they could shoot nights and not be hampered by child labor laws.

The movie is phenomenally stupid, yet some people (like myself) find something endearing in how joyfully the movie wallows in its own stupidity.

Why?? What is wrong with a standard issue roadside motel room? Why do you have to do this?
 
2022-08-16 11:21:03 AM  
I've never stayed in a motel room that wasn't J&B themed.

The rec room has more of a later 70's vibe.

$9.99 for a case of bar bottles when I was in college in Western Mass.

All I'm saying was, it worked.  And was a damn good bang for the buck.

I had the couch AND chair in my first house in college.

I remember that before we moved out, we cut open the back of the chair and retrieved lots of cash, my knife and several bags of drugs

It depends entirely on whether the jukebox works and what's on it.

That couch is magic. Everyone knew someone with that couch in the 80's (then well into the 90's in college apartments). I farked on that couch. Twice.

Enjoy your stay.

PBR was the 1st beer we started drinking in the late 70's before the Lite beers came out and Coors was still unavailable in the East. Remember "Smokey & the Bandit", you couldn't get it back here then.

No. It depends entirely on whether or not it comes with mid-80s, pre-mods Pamela Anderson.

Oh they were in a lot of places. That's more 70's combined with 80's.

My parents had that wood paneling with that type shag carpet in our TV room (which was different from the living room as it was low class to have a tv in the living room)
