Musings and Meanderings
Tuesday, August 26, 2003
Every other Monday night is boys night in. Usually its DVD night as well. We get what we want from the store for dinner (within reason) and rent a movie we both want to see.
So last night Alex had Pizza and cheeze sticks. I had baked chicken legs. (This is a story unto itself, as apparently our stove is not working now, so I baked them in the dish in the BBQ. Yummy!)
We rented Shanghai Knights. Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson. What a gas. It's basically a sendup of the late 60's and early 70's english comedys. Something the casual movie watcher would miss completely. Especially the Pillow Fight scene.
I didn't see the first Chan/Wilson movie but I can assume from Chan's character name that name dropping jokes are the running gag. Here we have Inspector "Artie" who turns out to be Arthur Conan Doyle, and an urchin who turns out to be Charlie Chaplin. Highlight the blank spaces if you wish to know the names and have seen the movie.. or will not ever see the movie. They are left white on white so as not to spoil the surprise for those who wish to see it.
Any way very funny flick. Rent it.
