Thanks Crackerdog! :yes:
Roxanne with Steve Martin. Classic! Love the alien impersonation!
WORMS, Roxanne! I'm afraid of WORMS! :D
Love Roxanne :)
"What's Up Doc?" with Madeline Khan and Ryan O Neal, and for some very strange reason the first "Legally Blonde"....I would normally HATE a girl like Elle Woods, but that movie just cracks me up!
Also love "Airplane", and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".
How about The Big Chill for great quotes?
MICHEAL: I don't know anyone who could get through the day without two or three juicy rationalizations. They're more important than sex.
Sam Weber: Ah, come on. Nothing's more important than sex.
Michael: Oh yeah? Ever gone a week without a rationalization?
Meg: They're either married or gay. And if they're not gay, they've just broken up with the most wonderful woman in the world, or they've just broken up with a bitch who looks exactly like me. They're in transition from a monogamous relationship and they need more space. Or they're tired of space, but they just can't commit. Or they want to commit, but they're afraid to get close. They want to get close, you don't want to get near them.
Michael: That's the great thing about the outdoors, it's one giant toilet.
Nick: I'm not all hung up on the "completion" thing.
I have to sit down with this thread and my Netflix queue! There's a lot of great movies here. Some I've seen, some I haven't.
I am a huge Austin Powers fan, too. Seriously? How can you NOT love it.
And, if we're talking guilty pleasures, I LOVE me some Will Ferrell. I know a lot of people get twitchy when I say that, but the man cracks my ass up. I mentioned Talledega Nights in my first post, but, really, he could do an Alpo commercial and I'd pee my pants from laughing.
I am a firm believer that movies should be entertaining! I have a very, very dear friend who is in the movie industry and likes high brow stuff. I always tease him about it, and while I do enjoy some of his picks, seriously, I want to laugh till I cry. And if I'm not laughing, I want their to be aliens or superheroes and NYC best be getting trashed (because all good alien or superhero movies trash NYC for some reason). Or, it needs to Quentin Tarantino. (OK. I exaggerate a bit. I'll watch a good smart movie, but not ALL the time!)
Another one of my favorites that I don't think was mentioned yet:
It also gave me a song that I love, "Scotty doesn't know", and in the movie they had Matt Damon in a band singing to it. It was hilarious!
I was giggling and DH asked why, so I explained.
'Fletch' he said. I had completely forgotten about it.
and another SNL alumni: Tommy Boy.....
