I so am getting old...

notnowbernard Thu 27-Dec-12 22:51:29

why, which bit?

Is it on? I didn't get the memo???

He's got totally the wrong end of the stick and is being totally prejudiced.

YABU. He jumps to conclusions without checking his facts.

Channel 5.

I just think with the information he had no wonder he was furious, and even if he had listened and found out sooner that Johnnycake isn't the baby's father, would you want your young daughter to hook up with a guy like Johnny?

Johnnycake?? iPad autocorrect never seizes to surprise me...

He asked Jonny who was responsible for Penny and he said "me" therefore making it sound like he was the one who knocked her up. Why didn't they bloody say it was Robbie the creep sooner!

No you wouldn't. It's all very seedy IMO.

notnowbernard Thu 27-Dec-12 22:55:14

He has got a rather marvellous chest though

I got a johnnycake autocorrect today too! Wtf is a johnnycake?!grin

Cringey bit coming up. hmm

Oh yeah. I'm liberal on the outside but 'get your mitts off my kid' on the inside. Johnny is fab but they should have grassed up that arse Robbie earlier.

Just lucky elder sis doesn't fuck him.

Sparklingbrook Thu 27-Dec-12 22:56:22

Can't look....

LightHousekeeping Thu 27-Dec-12 22:57:19

You know, I think I'm the only one that wasn't into it

notnowbernard Thu 27-Dec-12 22:57:22

God, i LOVED this film when I was about 12-13

I'd not judge him until I'd met him properly. If my DD was seeing him, I'd assume he had redeeming features.

Sparklingbrook Thu 27-Dec-12 22:58:57

Cringe

I thought this too!
There comes a point when you no longer relate to the protagonists of a film but rather their parents. I had this shocking realisation whilst watching The Goonies last week...

CatPussRoastingOnAnOpenFire Thu 27-Dec-12 22:59:11

I'd also be rather jealous!

NeverKnowinglyUnderstood Thu 27-Dec-12 22:59:45

I was also wondering this about my fave film!!
Johnny must be late 20's and baby was 16/17 hmmm as a parent not sure I would be delighted.

CatPussRoastingOnAnOpenFire Thu 27-Dec-12 23:00:00

Arf @ The Goonies! grin

TeamSledward Thu 27-Dec-12 23:00:30

Catpuss - the redeeming features are the lovely torso and the buttocks you want to bite.

Aspiemum2 Thu 27-Dec-12 23:03:50

It sucks, the film was far more enjoyable as a horny teenager than as an over protective mother! You are right, you are old when you no longer swoon over the 'bad boy' I guess sad

TeamSledward Thu 27-Dec-12 23:04:33

I really feel for the Goonie parents - those kids blame them for having to move, but don't realise that a mortgage has to be paid and it's not the fecking mortgage fairies that come up with the money.
And then they all go off on an "adventure" to god knows where, when there has been a local prison break by notorious criminals, and are missing for hours/days. Bloody selfish kids!
