Just finished the Scared Straight episode (so I still have a few episodes left to go), but that part was great, as are most scenes with Crazy Eyes (e.g. “I threw my pie for you!” and her great unexplained conversation with her WASPy white parents at Thanksgiving).
Anyway, I’m glad to see this show got brought up on here, as it’s great TV and a really good mix of comedy with legitimate drama and good acting (between her 2 notable speeches while she was in the SHU and the scared-straight speech to the wheelchair girl, I’ve been really impressed with Taylor Shilling in the last few episodes).
The source link (and the nightmare gallery that goes with it) mentions that Courtney and Doug have a dog named “Dourtney”. Let that sink in for a minute.
Maybe it’s already been discussed in earlier AD-related posts, but nobody seems to be addressing the most shocking moment of this season (I’m only 5 episodes in so far): what the hell did Portia De Rossi do to her face? It took me half of her episode (episode 3?) to realize that it was even her (ironically enough, at first I thought it was Christine Taylor, who was in the first new episode)
I’m just glad to hear that it wasn’t just me and that Kelly was struck with that same nervousness that Franco was going to turn on the girls at any moment (although he never did) and/or that I was about to see something truly awful at any moment (although it never did). I think it’s one of those movies that will be much easier to watch a second time, because it really was pretty entertaining.
PS – Can we talk about the last scene? Wouldn’t you think that after shooting up Gucci Mane’s mansion (with fully-automatic handguns that they somehow never had to reload) and killing 20-30 people (worst gangster entourage ever, btw) that leaving the scene of the crime in the guy’s tangerine-orange Lamborghini (let alone driving all the way BACK TO COLLEGE in it) might be a bad idea? I get that we’re supposed to appreciate the general Scarface bad-assery of these 2 college girls who came down to St. Petersburg for Spring Break (forever) and left as the baddest MF’ers in St. Pete (and the only ones still alive), but that’s like Crime 101, right? And they burned their professor’s El Camino after robbing that diner, so it’s not like they don’t know how to cover their tracks. In a movie that was action-packed with unbelievable over-the-top dumb bullshit, somehow that seemed like the dumbest thing in the whole movie. Which is really saying something.
I made the mistake of watching this movie yesterday afternoon while battling a significant hangover (and hangover-related anxiety) from a friend’s wedding reception that got slightly out of hand on Saturday night. When you mix that with the general sensory overload of it all (which is basically a Skrillex music video made from the most over-the-top Girls Gone Wild Spring Break footage) to the building dread/anxiety in the 2nd half of the movie that something really bad was going to happen at any moment (but, as Kelly mentions, it never actually gets that bad), this movie almost sent me into a full blown panic attack by the end.
That said, it was better than I thought it would be (again, for the reasons Kelly mentioned), and I would see it again just to watch James Franco’s ridiculously awesome bedroom monologue, which was just perfect on so many levels. “All this sheeyit! Look at my sheeyit! I got…I got SHORTS. Every fucking color! I got my fucking NUN-chucks!”
Gus Van Sant’s Good Witch Hunting
Agreed. I don’t know (or care) what the context of this post was, but this is one of the best posts I’ve seen on here in a while. Granted, I haven’t spent as much time on here as I used to (those calf implants I’ve been saving up for aren’t going to pay for themselves, after all), but I really liked this. Especially since it was essentially a stand-alone comedy piece that wasn’t related to any one thing in particular, save for the found footage movie fad. Hi fives all around.
It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip. It’s probably the best drawing I’ve ever done.
It’s good to see Dee from It’s Always Sunny getting out there and voting.
I never knew Andrew WK had such a lovely smile.
So you’re telling me that when Joe Sandler is not out there writing Grammy-worthy songs about donating organs, he’s NAILING Rambo impersonations? Is there anything this guy CAN’T do (well, aside from observing even the most basic levels of human hygiene)?!
If Will.i.am is really serious about helping America’s young wizards get their learn on, I think he needs to team up with Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope to go behind-the-scenes on science to expose how that shit works. The show would be called Mir.a.cles.
Actually, in the original Super Mario Bros, Mario’s overalls were red (with a brown shirt). He didn’t rock the blue overalls until Super Mario Bros II.
I may not win the caption contest, but I think it’s safe to say that I have the nerd comment of the week locked up.
Argh. Attach of the FB connect.
^All the upvotes to you. Fucking magnets.
Speaking of METHod actors, let’s hope he doesn’t sign up for a guest appearance on Breaking Bad any time soon.
Oops. Beat me to it.
As a clever blog that occasionally dabbles in humorous fictional screenplays, it seems pretty obvious that this whole thing is a bit, and a pretty funny one at that.
Guys, let’s just cut to the chase and ask the question we’re all really wondering here: if you sleep with conjoined twins, is that considered a threesome? I’m just asking. For a friend.
Thanks Kelly! I just figured that Randy Jackson was giving Mariah some bass guitar lessons on the beach, and they just decided to photoshop out the bass for her promo shot. Along with about 15″ from her waist.
PS – Do Associate Editor’s Choice count towards the EGOT? They count, right?
