I would also like to see the sequel to Edward Scooperhands – Edward Scooperhands 2: Pooper Scooper.
But then, I’m very immature.
I wanna see that, too. Oh, the hijinks that would ensue!
This is why I don’t go to the movies. Everything can be wrapped up neat and tidy in the span of just a few minutes. Genius.
Movies are just all puzzles needing my backseat driver help.
39 Steps sounds exactly like my typical night at the bar.
“I’ll show you my blueprints if you let me hide in your closet” sounds sexy until you realize they mean it literally.
Star Wars: A New Hope
“Maybe we should make this exhaust port smaller than a womp rat. Just in case someone has really good aim.” – Death Star construction worker.
They could have also called it something more positive like “The Big Boppin’ Whopper” or “Party Star,” maybe then everyone wouldn’t have gotten so upset about it.
I have never heard of 39 steps. Once it’s simplified, would it be renamed as “One step?”
I can’t wait to see Edward Scooperhands just take over Ben & Jerry’s shop. That will be epic scooperage.
Ha! Yeah, it’d be “One Step,” or “Step”, or “Patio.”
I love the dialog in 39 Steps there, excellent. Scissorhands too. You have a real ear for conversational speak. And “talky bubbles” – these talents together, my god, the possibilities…
Thanks. I love talky bubbles.
all excellenta dn hilarious, especially 39 steps.
5 minute movies, Meryl Streep edition:
1) French Leitenant’s Woman. You know, Sarah, I’m engaged, and we’re under acliff. Kinda weird. Take care of yourself.
2) Kramer vs. Kramer – “Ted, I hate you. But its 1979 and the woman always gets the kid. Here’s my attorney’s number. I’ll be across town if you ned me.”
3) Silkwood – Hey nuclear power plant people, this is my two week notice. I’d rather wait tables than be exposed to radiation. Please don’t kill me.
4) The River Wild – “Dude, you look like Kevin Bacon. You’re either Footloose or a creep. That’s all you play. Leave my family alone, we’re on vaca.”
So good! Meryl would have been nominated for less Oscars if these were only five minutes.
The Edward Scissorhands one was the best ever!
So funny! I’m not feeling very witty this morning, but I still wanted to give you two thumbs up. Fine holiday fun.
Thank you! You don’t have to feel witty if you come bearing compliments!
I love these posts! Edward IceCreamScoophands would be awesome!
A lot less angsty, I think.
Huh. I thought I had already commented on this. Oh well.
The first one? Stroke of genius. Made me laugh. That is all.
