Dan: Hey Adam, its time for some movie chat. What do you want to do this week?
Adam: Well… I’m not sure yet. I’ve been so distracted with Chiefs stuff I haven’t had time to sit down and enjoy a good flick. I definitely haven’t been able to be fully mentally vested in anything serious.
Dan: I figure that latter part is often a struggle for you 🙂
Maybe we should do our favorite comedy?
Adam: First off…. that’s more often true than not but it stings to hear it.
Secondly, that’s a dang fine idea.
Now to narrow it down the selection.
The everyday person like Adam is a liar liar. Now looking at defense attorneys, I would imagine you’d have to multiply that by a lot to get to the proper volume. What if you were a defense attorney and couldn’t lie? Hell, imagine not being able to lie as a normal Adam, that can put a damper on your everyday life, especially if you’re a playa’. I don’t judge.
All joking aside, add Jim Carrey to that mix and you get an extremely funny movie. Carrey has always been one of my favorite comedians along with the late, wonderful Robin Williams. Carrey adds his loony, improvising take on everything he does and although kids nowadays might find it offensive, if you know anything about Carrey, he’s a genuine man and great actor in my opinion. I love this movie so much and it just adds to a full list of great movies done by Carrey. if you haven’t sat down and watched this movie, you should. it’s full of laughs and heartfelt moments, like watching the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes (see what I did there).
I’m not about giving things away with my reviews so go watch it for yourself! You won’t be disappointed.
What If I told you,
Dan an AG staffer lived in a van down by the river? What if I told you that same staffer was a maniac… a maniac on the floor and he dances likes hes never danced before?
If those two questions don’t A) intrigue you about my intimate knowledge of other Staff’s personal lives and B) give you a dang good hint on where I’m going with this weeks movie selection then there might not be ANY help for you.
As a kid growing up in the 90’s Chris Farely was exploding on SNL. And while my parents didn’t want me watching SNL or even staying up late, I found Farely’s energy infectious and couldn’t turn away. As a kid I’m sure missed lots on innuendos and half of his comedic genius but I did enjoy his presence. Towards the end of his SNL career, David Spade and Farley teamed up for
one of the best comedy I’ve ever seen. Together they brought Tommy Boy to the world and it hasn’t been the same since.
Tommy Boy wasn’t made to win best picture it was made with idea that if you cried it was because you were literally dying of laughter. And to this day, I can not only quote at least 2… 4…9…er…5… percent of the movie I still laugh out loud while doing it.
Overall the plot of Tommy Boy is a simple one. Tommy’s father, who runs Callahan Auto Factory, dies and Tommy then inherits his dads business. But due to his dads business being near foreclosure Tommy and Richard (David Spade) have to take to the road and sell his father’s product and save the company and the town of Sandusky, Ohio. If you can’t find Sandusky or maybe even Davenport on a map maybe you should get yourself a new map.
Anyways… I love love LOVE this movie and if there’s a chance you haven’t watched it, do it today. Like, find your boss and tell them you are taking a mental health day and go get some Chris Farley / David Spade therapy.
