Hey, did you see the MacGruber movie yet with Will Forte and Kristin Wiig from SNL? If so, what did you think? It was a bomb at the box office but I actually enjoyed it.

I refuse to watch that. My brothers and mom watched it and said it was awful.

Baron - Return of the Pink Panther made me and my nephew laugh so hard, we doubled over and fell out of our seats in the theater.

PS - also, when I showed a YouTube clip of the fight between Clouseau and Kato to my 11-year-old grandson, he laughed his head off and watched it repeatedly!

@Baron

Your first five, and the last one are outstanding! I didn't want to like 'Pee-Wee', but watched with my son, and laughed so hard!!! Pink Panther series, with the inimitable Peter Sellers, still tickles my funny bone.

(spoilers for The Return of the Pink Panther)

Carma Chan,

It's so nice to hear about that movie from people who enjoy it too!

That fight with Kato kills me every time; when they slow the action and the sound down, I nearly run out of air from laughing.
And Kato hiding in the fridge is genius.

It's the third film in that series but it wasn't included in the nice MGM box set because it was owned by United Artists or another studio, so I bought it solo. Had to have that.

The hotel scene in Gstaad is a riot.

KatieHepburn,

It's difficult not to like the Pee-Wee movie. I mean, you've got Large Marge, Danny Elfman's fantastic score, Pee-Wee growling at hoodlums in the rain, the movie's vivid colors and production design, dancing to "Tequila" at the biker bar, "Paging Mr. Herman...", the breakfast machine, etc.

This is one of the most fun cult movies a person could want. It is so strange that it's irresistible, at least for me.

First 10 movies I vividly remember seeing, in chronological order...

Bambi - saw it as a family in the theater, first movie ever
Sound of Music - ditto
Wait Until Dark - my big brother took me to a matinee when I was in 3rd or 4th grade and scared the bajeebies outta me!
The Blob - still love this, it cracks me up
The Birds - scared my oldest sister so bad, to this day, she's phobic of birds and can't have one for a pet
Psycho - this probably should have scared me when I was a kid, but it didn't, I still find it mostly amusing and fun to watch - must have seen it on tv as a teen
Romeo & Juliet ~sigh~ (1968 version with Olivia Hussey - we saw it as a class in 7th grade, it arrived in 1970 in small town Utah)
Love Story - ending ticked me off, they should have stuck with the book!
The Godfather - shocking, and a bad memory, that night, bad bad bad - 13-year-old girls should not sneak into R-rated movies downtown and walk home late at night - I've seen the movie a couple of times as an adult and can appreciate it, but I don't care if I never see it again

Woodstock (the 1970 movie, saw it in 1972 at a St. George, Utah, theater - I was underage, but my sister got me in) - thank goodness for Love Peace & Joy!

I'm not too big on war movies myself. I admit that Apocalypse Now is a great movie.

Good Morning Vietnam was an excellent film. I think that was the first war movie I saw.

10 Reasons Why I like Tron: Legacy So Much

1. It brought back Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner to reprise their roles as Kevin Flynn and Tron.
2. It featured exciting disc battles, and the cool upgraded Recognizers vehicles from the first film.
3. It also featured spectacular lightcycle and light jet battles.
4. Olivia Wilde as Quorra. Homina, homina!
5. It featured a computer-generated younger version of Jeff Bridges as both Kevin Flynn and the main villain CLU.
6. The awesome Daft Punk soundtrack.
7. Olivia Wilde as Quorra!
8. Again, Lightcycles. I mean, who doesn't want to enter the grid and take a ride on the Lightcycles?
9. Skintight black suits with glowing luminescent colorful stripes.
10. Did I mention Olivia Wilde as Quorra? She wears a skintight suit with luminescent stripes!

I love Jeff Bridges - ever since Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, I've liked seeing him in movies.

Yep, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is a great movie. I've seen it a few times over the years now and it is always entertaining. I think that was the very first movie that I ever saw Jeff Bridges in?

Haha...gotta love Damon Killian from the Running Man.

I really enjoyed the Duck Tales cartoon show. Same with Sealab 2021.

@Alice! That list is just cruel!!! Especially 'The Monkees' theme song... Now I can't get it out of my head! Hate that song! Now I have to sing something else all day and try to over lay 'Monkees' with something less irritating. Any suggestions? Something catchy? 'The worms go in, the worms go out, the worms go in and out your snout...' Nah...
There's gotta be something better.

Carma--sorry, don't smoke. And if you don't like Citizen Kane--your problem, not the film's, and not mine. Argue with the broad consensus of film enthusiasts, directors, and scholars.

I hate to check my brain at the door at the movies. I don't think that's a crime.

Why do so many people on these forums respond to posts individually? I rarely even use the 'reply to this post' button. I just respond to everyone at once.
