|11.19.06||Alamo Downtown|| Alright! Tonight at the Alamo they got none other than Booger himself: Curtis Armstrong! And funnily enough, he's also one of the world's foremost Harry Nilsson experts! So, in a total Kier-La move, they played this animated TV special that Nilsson wrote before Revenge of the Nerds and made the double feature ticket really cheap! ok, enough exclamation points...|
I'd seen this once before, based on a recomendation from a hippie friend of mine. While I thought it was clever enough with the whole point thing and bevy of double meanings going on and it was cool to see where that song Me and My Arrow came from, I wasn't in a huge hurry to see it again. The DVD was narrated by Ringo Starr though, and this print supposedly had the original narration by Dustin Hoffman, plus hey... Curtis Armstrong in person!
So I guess this has a whole series of different narrators depending on when you caught it on TV. Even though Hoffman was credited in the print and ABC insisted that it was him and Booger said it was him, it didn't really sound much like Dustin Hoffman. It was like Hoffman doing a really good straight non-nasal accent. Maybe it was the mic or something... there were only a few places where I could kinda sorta tell it was him. The whole thing though, I think I liked more with his voice over Ringo's though... Starr's accent always takes me out of things. Plus I really kinda remember the DVD having a slightly different ending, with a little bit more inference that the Point story was real and the kid knew it and the dad didn't get it... but maybe that's just me being crazy.
so... I saw it again. Not in a hurry to see it any more but it was cool to see in a theater and with booger!
