7. The plot of a movie, play, or movie—in particular, the funny parts.

A surprisingly funny movie I saw recently is, "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story," which is basically a parody of "Walk the Line: The Johnny Cash Story." The whole thing pretty much is funny, just completely over the top, from the moment he accidentally saws his brother in half until the moment when... well, I'll let you watch most of it, but my favorite part is when he goes to meditate in India with The Beatles. They're all sitting around. The Maharishi looks like the Maharishi. George looks like George. Ringo looks like Ringo. John looks like John. And Paul McCartney looks like- Jack Black?

For comparison, Jack Black:

Sir Paul McCartney:

Jack Black wears no make-up to make him look like Sir Paul. Everyone just calls him, "Paul McCartney," and that's how we know it's him. Then John and Paul get in an argument.
George says,
"I'm just sitting here while my guitar cries, gently,"
Ringo says,
"I've got a song about an Octopus!" John says,
"You're lucky we still let you play drums!" Paul says,
"I'm the band leader!"
And somewhere in there, John jumps on Paul and starts beating the crap out of him.

That's the funniest part.

Yeah, maybe it is really boring to recount the funny parts of movies, after all!


  1. Why is that some people's naked chests look so much more naked than other people's?

    I take it that you've not yet had a golf game. Bring on the golf!

  2. adding it to my netflix queue right now!

  3. Between this post and "Boogie Nights," I have seen John C. Riley with his shirt off waaaaay too many times.

  4. The golf game will be tomorrow. I got all mixed up with my dates, somehow. It's just a coincidence, but I just watched that movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," so I think I'll blame it on that.

  5. Saw this movie 2 times. It was even funnier the 2nd time. However, I talked to someone who had seen it and didn't think it was the least bit funny. Go figure, no pun intended.

  6. Now that you've told me all about it, I don't have to rent it. And that's a good thing, in this economy.

  7. But Dad, you would really like it!
