On funny movies, and funny words

Breaking news. This just in.

Tonight (well, technically last night, but I'm writing this at 1 in the morning) I watched some of the corniest (it's a word, I looked it up) movies known to man.

(To be accurate, I only saw bits and pieces of each film since I was trying my darndest to get work done, but I watched enough to experience each movie's particular brand of ridiculousness.)

(It seems I like parenthesis past midnight.)

Anyway, first I saw the tail end of "PCU"-- a completely random choice that can only be credited to my completely random roommate...



Next up was "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure"-- a classic to be sure. How could I ever doubt Keanu Reeve's acting success? I immediately texted my best friend since it was a perennial favorite at her house growing up.
My text: I'm watching bill and ted's excellent adventure right now. Too funny.
Her response: Lol. It's a great movie :)


Nuff said. Dude. (Cue air guitar rift.)
Oh, and I totally called the boy a "dickweed" tonight. Just for fun. Yes.



At this point, I had to seclude myself in the bedroom to finish writing a story. When I emerged, what else was on the boob tube but "Little Giants." This had to be my favorite of the night. I'm sure I've seen it before, sometime in my youth, but I couldn't remember it-- which made it all the more entertaining. Every other line had me laughing and I found myself rooting (out loud, mind you) for the misfit peewee football team and Becky "Icebox" O'Shea-- remember her? The hardcore cheerleader-turned-linebacker. Total girl power.



Now remember, all this cheesiness happened in one night. But I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that last night, the boy made me watch "Smokey and the Bandit." (And I couldn't get over how almost ageless Sally Field is!) But really, what is going on in my apartment? Someone come save me and take me to a chick flick, quick.



I do have to state, for the record, that I did not watch "Groundhog Day" on Groundhog Day (that's yesterday, for those people who, like me, had no idea. I blame my calendar). That movie drives me bonkers.

So tell, me what's the cheesiest movie you've seen lately? It can be old or new but the cheesier/ cornier/ ridonkulous the better.



P.S. I can only imagine what using the words "dickweed" and "boob tube" will do to my blog on Google...

I LOVED Little Giants when I was a kid. LOVED IT! I used to watch it over and over. I must have seen that move 50 times! I had totally forgotten about it so thanks for reminding me with this post :)

bianca said...

oh my gosh, Little Giants!!! I absolutely loved that movie. I had a total crush on Devon Sawa because it was oh so dreamy. It's been years since I've seen it. Perhaps it's time to Netflix it :)

Carissa said...

I haven't heard "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" being mentioned since my senior year in high school. Haha. I haven't seen the movie, but the theme to my homecoming assembly was based off of this! That's so hilarious that you happened to be watching it.

rachel said...

ah, I love cheesy movies... I haven't seen Bill and Ted for many many years! I think the most recent one I watched was Strange Brew.

hope you are having a good weekend :)

LOL I must confess to enjoying Jeremy Piven in all his speed-talking glory in PCU - and you can't get better than Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure!

PS Your package came - everything is so cute! I took photos :)
