- So who's in this Pentaveret?

- The Queen, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Rothschilds, *and* Colonel Sanders before he went tits up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with is wee *beady* eye! And that smug look on his face, 'Oh, you're gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!'"

If my memory serves me correctly, there is an American pay cable station known as the Home Box Office, or HBO. The great Wuhl had a show known as Arli$$ on this station. I like the Wuhl. His turn in Batman was inspired.

Lost in Translation.

Princess Bride was great. So I Married.... was also great and I had a crush on Nancy Travis in that movie.

It is shocking that Fast Times at Ridgemont High has not been mentioned. That movie was funny and a springboard for about 30 now popular actors (not to mention pretty much every teen comedy that has come out since).



Edit: No mention of the first Austin Powers??!?!?!!??!?!!?
post #65 of 131
I apologize in advance to those that hated Austin Powers but I have to post some quotes:

Austin Powers: Did you just soil yourself?
Fat Bastard: Maybe.
Fat Bastard: [Laughs] It did sound a little wet didn't? Right at the end! Oooh! Heh heh heh. Let's have a smell alright? Hmmm, wafting, wafting. Oh everyone loves their own brand don't they? This is magic! Alright - analysis. Ooh, smells like carrots in throw up! Oh that could gag a maggot! It smells like hot sick... ass in a dead carcass! Even stink would say that stinks! You know when you go into an apartment building and you smell other people's cooking on each floor and you go "What are they cookin'?" That, plus crap!

Nigel Powers: There are only two things I hate; those who are intolerant of other people's cultures........and the Dutch.

This one is very apropos to this forum....................
Texan: Whoo! That is one crazy get-up, mister... Are you in the show?
Austin Powers: No, actually, I'm English.
Texan: Oh... sorry.

Vanessa Kensington: Mr. Powers, my job is to acclimatize you to the nineties. You know, a lot's changed since 1967.
Austin Powers: No doubt, love, but as long as people are still having promiscuous sex with many anonymous partners without protection while at the same time experimenting with mind-expanding drugs in a consequence-free environment, I'll be sound as a pound!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dr. Evil: The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.

Oh, wait a minute. One of the best comedies I have seen is "Happiness of the Katakuris." "Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl" has some of the funniest and most incompetent Yakuza henchmen I have seen

Jon.

That depends. Are you dining with kenpollock?

RJMan is right about The Naked Gun. I even liked Nielsen in Wrongfully Accused (his weird parody of Presumed Innocent/The Fugitive), so my taste in movies may be questionable.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High, like most of Cameron Crowe's movies, has not aged well.

IMMSMC, BOTH versions had Jean Reno in it.

I like the movie alot, its one of my favorites, but to be honest, IMO, it also has its faults, which is why I didn't include it earlier. The opening to that movie is one of the funniest things ever. Literally it is the best first five minutes of a movie that I have ever seen, but then the music/dance sequences are hit and miss. Shizue and Richard's "love at first sight" duet is priceless, and the song immediately following the discovery of the first suicide is also great. (and the son's ridiculous dance moves!) The song with the zombies and the random duet between the mother and father on the other hand...meh. If they would have asked for top 5 funniest movies of all time, this would be on it, but Groundhog Day, Office Space, and Super Troopers are my clear top three.

Tell me this thread hasn't gone five pages without someone mentioning "Ghostbusters" ...



"Generally, you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance."

"You're gonna endanger us. You're gonna endanger our client. The nice woman who paid us in advance, before she became a dog."

"You're right, no human being would stack books like this. "

"Hee hee. 'Get her.' That was your whole plan. I like it; it was scientific."

I liked Johnny English. It appealed to my inner Sophistication.

Withnail and I

Danny: Why trust one drug and not the other? That's politics, isn't it?
Withnail: What are you talking about Danny?
Danny: Politics man. If you're hanging on to a rising balloon, you're presented with a difficult decision; let go before it's too late, or hold on and keep getting higher. Posing the question, how long can you keep a grip on the rope?
