Better Off Dead

The other night, Blaine and I watched this classic.
Seriously, how long has it been since you watched this gem?
I was giggling throughout the entire thing and anticipating all my favorite parts with a giant smile on my face.

I died during the scenes with Lane's dad trying to talk to him in teenager language.

The scene where Lane pokes his food and it slithers away was so, so awesome.

Charles De Mar telling the pig fetus in-a-jar to wake up killed me.

So did the classroom scene with the Geometry teacher wooing his students with mathematical jargon.

But the high school dance scene with Ricky's big dance moves and the "shave your date" jab was probably my favorite of all.

And Lane Meyer playing his saxophone for Monique over a candlelit TV dinner still made me swoon.

Oh, John Cusack. I still love you oh, so much.

I was just thinking about the flashback scene with the girlfriend (what's her name?) where they're paranoid and wiping their faces of possible food and boogers. Classic.

every time I see a raisin when I am with Dave I just have to say "you like raisins Dave"

It is in my top 10 movies. Literally. I spent a good day putting this list together.

one of my favorites! i can't even fully understand how a girl from my generation came to be so obsessed with mr. cusack, all i know is that it happened. "it's a shame people be throwing out a perfectly good white boy." favorite line...

You know, I don't really know why, but when I was in high school, I was completely obsessed with everything 80's... I was about ten years behind the times.
Hmmm... I think I feel a blog post inspiration coming on.

awesome. You have inspired me to get this sweet little number out of our collection. I love when the girlfriend gets tentacles and testicles mixed up. LOL I still will never fully understand the hamburger cartoon insert, but still fully love it (and that song!)

One of my fav movies of all time! "I didn't ask for a quarter! TWO DOLLARS!" This is 100% pure snow-do you know the street value of this stuff?? I can't feel the left side of my body! Classic and fantastic! I may have to pull out the VHS and watch again. LOLOLOL!
