Andy Sidaris always had a bunch of ex-Playmates in his movies. And lots of guns.

I was at that Zine Fest.

Hi Callie!

WHAT??? Sandra Oh left "Grey's Anatomy???"

Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:11pm BadGuyZero:

Apology. I'm being a jackass.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:12pm BadGuyZero:

I have never watched that show. The only thing I've seen Sandra Oh in is "Arli$$" and "Sideways."
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hoping that Grandma Phyllis is feeling better. Get well soon.

BLERG! I can't call. T-Mobile hasn't sent me a replacement phone yet.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:27pm Callieflower:

I like hearing a lot of calls :)
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:28pm JakeGould:

Fritz the Cat. That scene where they pick up chicks in Washington Square. Yeah.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:29pm BadGuyZero:

I can only think of two times in high school that first dates involved going to a movie. They were "Radio Days" and "The Lost Boys."
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:32pm Callieflower:

I'm not watching Game of Thrones with a boy, but the rape is still making me uncomfortable
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:33pm Nick the Bard:

I had a friendship kind of begin it's end watching Hobo With A Shotgun with someone. We both started out making fun of it, I ended up getting into the movie, she kept trying to riff it, which just got really painful for both of us.

My brother proposed after Lincoln.

“4 score & 7 years ago… Will you be my bride, Baberaham Lincoln?”
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:36pm BadGuyZero:

My mom was really insistent that my girlfriend and I should watch "The Devil's Advocate" with her and Dad. Awful movie and one of the worst things you could watch with your parents.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:36pm BadGuyZero:

"Antichrist" is my favorite romantic comedy!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:39pm JakeGould:

BGZ: I know a fairly well known indie film reviewer who was (is?) obsessed with "The Devil's Advocate". This reviewer is well respected & it isn’t a guilty pleasure. It’s weird. It’s why I no longer respect certain respected reviewers.

Albert Brooks
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:41pm BadGuyZero:

"John & Mary" with Dustin Hoffman and Mia Farrow was pretty much the "Before Sunrise" of the late 60s.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:42pm BadGuyZero:

A lot of those old screwball comedies have really great, strong female characters.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:44pm JakeGould:

“A lot of those old screwball comedies have really great, strong female characters.” As long as the ladies are screwball, they get power in those comedies.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:45pm Nick the Bard:

ok, if you're calling in and just hanging up, KNOCK IT THE HELL OFF ALREADY
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:46pm Jeff:

Something which seems like a terrible idea as one of the first movies for a couple to watch together, but which actually worked out pretty well: the (first?) Jackass movie.

Maybe one of things which worked is that the dynamic of choosing the movie was playing against gender stereotypes: I really wasn't at all interested in sitting through it, kind of preciously turned up my nose, thought it was the kind of crudeness I just didn't need. Kathryn rented it anyway, because she thought it'd be fun.

And we both laughed our asses off, in between cringes.

Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:47pm cosmic matrix:

if watching a movie in bed with a girl is like a date, then "eraserhead"! i made out for the first time...hey why not. eventually, i ended up in film school. then i dropped out!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:49pm BadGuyZero:

My most recent girlfriend and I went to see "Adventureland" on our second date.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:52pm Nick the Bard:

but not being really for the sex scenes in the room is most of the fun of it
  Wed. 5/28/14 7:54pm Cavorting with Nudists:

Thin Man movies are perfect. William Powell is like the Anti-Randy.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:55pm Jeff:

Something which turned out to be a bad pick: "Team America: World Police".

I've long enjoyed the work of those Trey 'n' Matt kids, AND I used to love the Supermarionation shows like Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet as a kid...

But the puppet sex scene TOTALLY creeped Kath out.

Understandably, it was pretty terrible on purpose. But she kept having flashbacks of it surprisingly long.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:59pm BadGuyZero:

Goodnight everyone!
Avatar Thu. 5/29/14 1:41pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I took a girl to see The Pillow Book (1997). Kinda squirmy.
