  • Name that movie!

    Don't know the movie, not even sure I got the actor right: John Wayne?

      That's Babe Ruth in The Sandlot, a great, great movie.

      I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster and drank pina coladas. At sunset we made love like sea otters. That was a pretty good day.

        That would be one of my favorite movies, Groundhog Day--or is it Groundhog's Day? We've watched that movie at least 20 times.

        Next:

        I wasn't like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot.

          Man, that's a good quote but I haven't the faintest notion what film it's from. Hate to see this thread come to a halt because nobody's brave enough to venture a guess though, so here goes:

          You're an obviously literate person with good taste in films, so it's probably something thought-provoking and interesting. 'Though it has nothing to do with the quote (as far as I can tell), I'm going to take a wild stab and guess Aaron Eckhart in In the Company of Men.

          You may have to give us a hint. Maybe another snippet of dialogue?

            Oh man, that quote by U'ilani sounds so eloquent, but there's 10% of my brain screaming that it's really from a schlapschtick movie.

                Not sure about buzz's movie quote. It sounds like a Robin Williams line or maybe a Pakistani movie, lol, but that's as far as I can get without googling.

                That minority part is right--it's from Zoolander, starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson--oh, and Will Ferrell. You guys have to see it. It's absolutely hysterical, but be sure to only view it when you're in the mood for a really silly movie.

                  I love those guys, but that movie is terrible! Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell are so good at being smart-dumb, but that movie is just dumb-dumb. Sorry.

                  Have you seen Owen Wilson in Bottle Rocket?

                    What? How can you not love Zoolander?! Impossible. Dumb-dumb can actually be brilliant when it's so shockingly slapstick silly. There are a ton of moments in that movie that crack me up. I bet you also hated Rat Race?

                    Nope, I haven't seen Bottle Rocket. Any good (not that I should take your assessment seriously, at this point )?

                            Great Movie......takes the edge off a bad day.

                            However, he was from Cimmeria. The land of ice and snow. Robert E. Howard's mythology is second only to J.R.R. Tolkien. Got me through high school. Thanks for the recall. Brings back good memories.
