which normally means i'll never watch it
its kind of like a mixture between napoleon dynamite and a will ferral type film, if that rings any bells.
watched it again over christmas, think it is a hidden gem of the dumb comedy genre
Haven't seen it since I was a child and it was still brilliant
as oldies. Now You See Me was a fun watch. Are you looking for uplifting films or comedies?
or California Man or The Son In Law. Basically anything from Pauly Shore's cannon. Buuuuudy.
....oh you said cheery not dreadful.
fella I want to tell you about, fella
by the name of Jeff Lebowski. At
least, that was the handle his lovin'
parents gave him, but he never had
much use for it himself. This
Lebowski, he called himself the Dude.
Now, Dude, that's a name no one would
self-apply where I come from. But
then, there was a lot about the Dude
that didn't make a whole lot of sense
to me. And a lot about where he
lived, like- wise. But then again,
maybe that's why I found the place
They call Los Angeles the City of
Angels. I didn't find it to be that
exactly, but I'll allow as there are
some nice folks there. 'Course, I
can't say I seen London, and I never
been to France, and I ain't never
seen no queen in her damn undies as
the fella says. But I'll tell you
what, after seeing Los Angeles and
thisahere story I'm about to unfold--
wal, I guess I seen somethin' ever'
bit as stupefyin' as ya'd see in any
a those other places, and in English
too, so I can die with a smile on my
face without feelin' like the good
Lord gypped me.
Now this story I'm about to unfold
took place back in the early nineties--
just about the time of our conflict
with Sad'm and the Eye-rackies. I
only mention it 'cause some- times
there's a man--I won't say a hee-ro,
'cause what's a hee-ro?--but sometimes
there's a man.
And I'm talkin' about the Dude here--
sometimes there's a man who, wal,
he's the man for his time'n place,
he fits right in there--and that's
the Dude, in Los Angeles.
...and even if he's a lazy man, and
the Dude was certainly that--quite
possibly the laziest in Los Angeles
County..which would place him high in the
runnin' for laziest worldwide--but
sometimes there's a man. . . sometimes
there's a man.
Wal, I lost m'train of thought here.
But--aw hell, I done innerduced him
we're watching the princess bride
Takes me from 😕 to 😃
in a sort of melancholy way at points in both
It's great, much better than ha1. Can't believe it's nearly Christmas! !!
