Wei shenme? That's one of the best movies of all time. The whole sex/bicycle pump/painting/mooing toys/violin playing/metronome syncronocity scene was classic. Especially the end. How could you not like Dominique Pinon?
Another serious bummer movie that I have had the opportunity to watch so I could refresh my memory on what was so horrible about it:
Nothin' But Trouble
If that ain't foreshadowing, I don't know what is.
Watch how Chevy Chase half-assedly (?) delivers his cynical lines and the tired overuse of cliches and bad puns. The horrible make-up, the messy cameo by Digital Underground. The lame jokes they try to come up with such as making the Judge's nose a very obvious phallic symbol, and just in case you miss this innuendo, they even give it a foreskin and an opening which can be seen on close-ups of Dan Ackroyd's profile. Demi Moore looks appalled. Chevy Chase looks bored. John Candy looks desperate. The kind of people who could dream up such tripe ain't nothin' but troubled.
