This film bombed at the box office and not many people have heard of it. Which is odd because it's bloody brilliant. Robin Williams is a kids TV host who gets fired when they find out he's taking bribes to let kids onto his show. He gets replaced by Smoochy (Ed Norton in a giant purple dinosaur costume) and spends the rest of the film attempting to sabotage the new show, hoping he'll get his back on the air.
By now you're probably sold and already looking for the film on amazon, and so you bloody should. The shocking thing about this film is how poorly it was received. Robin Williams won a Razzie award for it. Bizarre.
If this film was just the newscasters fight scene, it still would have made it into the top ten. Every time I watch it I deafen my wife. So whether you love lamp or just wanna wear sex panther this film is for you. It's also the film which made me realise the comedy genius of Paul Rudd and Steve Carrell. The best thing Christina Applegate's ever been part of, with the possible exception of the Married with Children episode featuring Anthrax.
John C. Reilly
The kid that sings Sweet Child of Mine is a creepy wee bastard. Other than that the films filled with awesome moments. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly play two forty year old men who act like kids and are thrust together when they're parents marry. I've made all kinds of noises watching this film. I'm off to do some activities and sing boats n hoes. The fucking Catalina wine mixer.
Yeah that's right Reggie fucking Bannister's in this film, and it was directed by Don Coscarelli, Phantasms Don Coscarelli. You can't get better than that. Add in Elvis and a black JFK living in an old folks home fighting a mummy and you have a fucking movie my friend. Oh and if you don't like Bruce Campbell, you're a fucking dick.
Michael Jai White
I still have no idea how I found this film. I came across it, thought it looked ok, and when a couple of friends came over I put it on thinking it would be background noise. Within minutes the talking had stopped and the laughing had begun. It didn't stop. DYNAMITE DYNAMITE. I didn't think a blaxploitation comedy could be better than I'm Gonna Get You Sucka but this totally blows it away. Fuck pimp of the year, this film is awesome and should have been huge. But it's a low budget movie and not many people have seen it. So go out and buy it. Maybe we'll get a sequel and once again we can shout DYNAMITE DYNAMITE!
Who's interrupting my kung fu ?
What else could be number one? Though I have to admit the first time I saw this I had nightmares. Fucking zombies. You've all seen it, so you all know it deserves to be here. I can't wait for Paul, and I'll queue up for anything Edgar Wright directs, he hasn't made a bad film yet. Hopefully Nick Frost, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright will get together again to do another film in the future. Until then we always have this and Hot Fuzz. Made of awesome.
