Gabe’s gonna go from Shaggy2Dope!
I love this.
definitely not a joke. anglos are completely facepalming themselves today and muttering “c’mon frankies, get it TOGETHER, ‘stie.”
just as with jesse’s incredible scene at rehab and good portion of the first season, i was either turning away or laughing during the final fight because i couldn’t handle the emotionz! so good so good so good so good so good so good so good!!!!
Kelly had me at ” I dislike when nerds on TV shows have scoliosis because I have scoliosis and I feel like I’m being forced to further a stereotype” because I also have scoliosis (so taunting that that word has a multitude of ‘s’s, the shape of which mimics our imperfect spines). If Kelly is joking about having scoliosis I will be really really sad. Welcome K-Con!
I think it’s a Canadian accent trying to imitate a New York accent and coming out deaf/Downs.
I think you’re right about the Lil’ Kev sitch!
And no, Travis doesn’t owe me money (we weren’t even friends, doye he was like 3 years younger!) and he doesn’t have any sort of developmental disorder. He just has similar facial features to hoobastalk or whoever up there.
i’m glad there’s a safe place for the niche market of ‘older men seek younger women’ to meet.
guy that kid has mild downs or at least autism no? he also looks like this kid travis i went to high school with. all of this is tragic to me.
Scythe and the City
Nightmare on Thelm(a and Louise) St.
Creep, Flay, Blood
In the dictionary next to “Making Up For Lost Time.”
Also, he looks there like the type of homeboy to keep a girl guessing as to where his Pi tattoo is (inner thigh).
so much so that it should be called the thoist maker, cuz it’s makin’ me thurrssttyyyyy (OH JESUS GOD WHAT?)
this is wayyyy hotter than that 80s striptease!
The same boring, mindless typecasting went into The Hangover though! And most other movies! It’s sort of like criticizing the makers of Jurassic Park for creating dinosaurs that were either violent or ate leaves. IT’S ALWAYS ONE OR THE OTHER WITH THOSE DINOSAURS, NEVER SHOWING THE COMPLEXITY OF THE OMNIVORES! It’s a Hollywood movie, not a gender studies paper.
I think you’re right to ask that question. Gender distinctions are salient in life and amplified in movies/media, and especially in movies geared to wide audiences. I don’t see how either this movie or The Hangover attempts to bring anything interesting about gender or comedy into question, nor do I think they aim to. I think the comedy is pretty predictable and non-gender specific in a lot of ways.
Gabe’s right in that it might be difficult to make a conclusion about what this movie might mean for gender/society (if that’s what he was saying). I don’t think this is a movie that even would try to tear down one gender construct even though it might be in a position to. Perhaps having traditionally male fart-eque jokes in a female-dominated movie eases the rape-soaked brains of frat boys into seeing that women can make them laugh. More than likely though, Bridesmaids will do for women what The Hangover did for men – nothing. But who cares?
Also, someone still needs to make Clementine Johnson – The Movie is all I’m saying. I’ll be her stunt double (yes, there will be lots of daring feats in this movie).
I think the ‘take back the barf’ analysis is the right one. Ladies be barfin’. Plus, I will definitely see this because I need more Clementine Johnson in my lyffe4eva!
