|01.08.06||DVD|| yeah I stayed up. A few things here: I still think the first 20 minutes of this are classic and I laugh every time. Keith David (or is it David Keith? Whichever one is the cool black actor and not the white guy who was in Major League 2 and U-571) is hilarious, Markie Post spraying bactine onto Ben Stiller's crotch cracks me up, and I love how Cameron Diaz is holding the ice pack as Stiller's wheeled out to the ambulance. However, the last time I watched this, I remember thinking that the rest of the movie had really aged poorly and was clearly too long. I think that may have been the extended cut though because I didn't think that this time. The movie's still pretty long but I think it carries OK and is still probably maybe my favorite Farrelly brothers movie (tied with Dum & Dumber. if Kingpin was all Bill Murray that would be my fave but it's not so it's not).|
Also, I never realized that Diaz's brother in the film, Warren, is W. Earl Brown. Big difference between him there and in Deadwood, that's for damn sure.
and maybe i'm in the minority but i like the whole Cat Ballou musician guides through this movie. People that don't understand it are just thinking too hard.
So that's good... a movie I didn't enjoy that much last time I still got a kick out of this time. now it's time for bed
oh one last thing. Mary Zophres did the costume design for this movie. She's like the only costume designer name i recognize because she worked on The Big Lebowski and contributed to the making-of book. So whenever she designs costumes for a movie or whenever i see rick heinrichs listed as production designer and of course roger deakins as DP I always think back to that awesome making-of Big Lebowski book. What a great book, for real.
