Congrats Cole, you've single-handedly killed the integrity of the entire "Movies We Love" column.
You've written a solid review of a mildly entertaining movie and you cap it off with the incredibly high praise of "it’s done well enough to be enjoyable." Wow. Definitely ranks up there with the likes of High Fidelity, Seven, and The Big Lebowski.
You should put quotes around the word "hilarious" in the post's title. You know, to point out that it isn't...
It's not really suspense in the sense that there's a grand reveal at the end, it's more in the planning and execution of the film crew's midnight excursion. Of course they're killing the dolphins, dressing them up like Harry Truman, and then sodomizing them... but it's what happens next that may surprise you.
Wait, so you're saying that a desire to have an Asian schoolgirl urinate on my perineum is a fetish? When the hell did this country get so puritanical?
You hate Abaius and me? Impossible! There can be only one, Fure!
Abrams should do neither and instead move on to something new.
Also, the first MI sucked donkey scrotum. Terrible twists, laughable masks, ludicrous helicopter tunnel scene.
I agree about Memento and have already started it... but you bastards have already beat me to the punch on three other Movies We Love so I expect the same with this one. Motivated bastards.
Awesome choice Jim! Funny, sweet, and still Murray's best movie.
I'd argue your final dig at the movie Dave though. It's no Groundhog Day, but it's still a very good flick. And Gary Ross (who also wrote Big and Pleasantville) is a lot more recognizable than Danny Rubin (who went on to write...)
We keep Landon around mostly for balance. He's the yin to our wang.
I really enjoyed the long stretches of silence, but they kept getting interrupted by three idiots yammering on about who knows what. Fix that technical glitch and you have a winner.
