Don't call me Shirley...

I just finished watching Airplane for probably the 50th time, and it never gets old! Never! Even watching it on AMC with commercials every 10 minutes was more than do-able. If I ever really hit rock bottom, I'd make a point to watch the movie all day long. It would set me back on the right path again.

Since I haven't quite hit bottom yet, I'm spending my time watching Bon Voyage starring GĂ©rard Depardieu. There's nothing better than subtitled films set in France during WWII involving heavy water (D2O.) Deuterium is such a blockbuster isotope; I don't think its Hollywood potential has been adequately explored.

"You ever seen a grown man naked?"

I watched both the original and the DVD extras version! It's been years since I've seen the whole thing in one sitting! There's so much goofiness in it you can't help but shake your head and laugh! Nothing has come close to matching it!

Still could've done without all the commercials, though. Didn't AMC used to show everything commercial-free???

I think TCM (Turner Classic Movies) is commercial-free. They sometimes show some great movies as well; I've caught Young Frankenstein on TCM a few times.

I saw Airplane in the theatre when it first came out with, believe it or not, my church youth group. Ah, the joys of liberal theology. Although, I seem to recall our group leader almost crapping himself when they showed the jiggling boobies.
