Re: Broken Lizard thread
I watched "Club Dread" again yesterday and I have to say that I think it's my favorite of their movies. The way the story is set up at the beginning so that any of the characters would have motive for being the killer is really clever. Also, the movie is just jam-packed with jokes. The scene where they all try to decipher the meaning of the "Naughty Cal" song is a candidate for the "Perfect Scenes" thread, if it was available on Youtube, which it doesn't appear to be. Lines like "We were just a couple of stupid kids" and "And ever since that day, Phil Colletti became known as Machete....Phil" are pretty damn close to genius in the way they sneak up on you. Plus the songs that they wrote for Bill Paxton's character like "Pina Coladaburg" are almost pitch-perfect parodies of the drivel that Jimmy Buffett writes.
If you haven't seen the movie in a while, watch it again, you will see people like Nat Faxon and Samm "Lil' Wolverine" Levine delivering funny supporting performances (The way Levine delivers the line "What's that underwater? Oh wait, it's just my giant cock" is particularly funny). This movie is a definite candidate for most underappreciated comedies of all time.
I also just bought "Puddle Cruiser" on DVD but haven't watched it yet.
