D p was shocked I had never seen it or been curious to see it! I asked if it was stupid and daft? He said No just funny! So I agreed! It's now twenty min in and I am slowly dying! How long does this last?

SkinnybitchWannabe Mon 01-Apr-13 21:29:25

Its a fantastic film. I think its hilarious so YABU

HollyBerryBush Mon 01-Apr-13 21:30:01

Funny film, but very dated now

Ratata Mon 01-Apr-13 21:30:12

YABU grin it's awesome!!

EarnestDullard Mon 01-Apr-13 21:31:34

I love it. I'd agree that it's daft, but still funny imo grin

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:32:39

It is awful! Teenage level (although that may be am insult to teenagers!) comedy!

piprabbit Mon 01-Apr-13 21:32:50

Stupid, daft and funny.

VivaLeBeaver Mon 01-Apr-13 21:32:59

I loved that film, have the soundtrack.

dadofnone Mon 01-Apr-13 21:33:47

God YABVU!
Love it still!

Lorelilee Mon 01-Apr-13 21:34:17

HOW. VERY. DARE. YOU? It is a seminal piece of cinematic brilliance. My sisters and I know it practically word for word. YABVVVVVVVU.

I personally prefer Bill and Ted because I luffs Alex Winter but WW is funny... I think its one of those 'context of era' things... but then we watched Hot Tub Time Machine over Xmas and really liked it !!! blush

YABU to say it's the biggest pile of bollocks. That is an honour to be equally shared with Fred the Movie, another total load of shite.

Branleuse Mon 01-Apr-13 21:37:08

YABVVU

ellenbrody Mon 01-Apr-13 21:37:11

It's a fab film - how dare you! shock

Branleuse Mon 01-Apr-13 21:37:24

and waynes world 2 is brilliant too

MissAnnersley Mon 01-Apr-13 21:37:54

YABU. It's very funny.

out2lunch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:38:11

its excellent

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:38:41

It's like Keenan and Kel level comedy!!

BinksToEnlightenment Mon 01-Apr-13 21:38:57

Whoa whoa whoa!!! I've seen some outrageous posts on mumsnet in my time but this is something else! You wash your mouth out, op!

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:39:26

Did you all watch it as teens?

FeralStreep Mon 01-Apr-13 21:39:54

Schwing!!

It's 21 years old! That makes me feel ancient.

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:42:48

It is awful. I knew I was right in never seeing it!

piprabbit Mon 01-Apr-13 21:43:40

I was a mature and sophisticated 22 year old.

Is it WW1 or WW2 that has Tina Carerra as the girlfriend.
In one of the film she sings "Ballroom Blitz" (The Sweet)

It's worth enduring the film for that. wink

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Mon 01-Apr-13 21:44:20

YAB soooooooo U.

"It's Wayne's World. Wayne's World. Party time. Excellent!!"

<wanders off dancing..>

piprabbit Mon 01-Apr-13 21:45:07

I think she's in both WW1 and WW2.

GreenEggsAndNichts Mon 01-Apr-13 21:46:25

I was in high school when it was out originally, and I loved it. I still love it.

YABU, obv.

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:46:41

Oh my God

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:47:03

Oh my God

KenDoddsDadsDog Mon 01-Apr-13 21:47:54

It's bloody brilliant. Saw it when I was early 20s at the cinema.
Sphincter Boy !

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:47:57

You are all utterly bonkers

lucysnowe Mon 01-Apr-13 21:48:13

YABVU! It's in my top ten best ever. smile In there for the 'Foxy Lady' sequence alone.

Lorelilee Mon 01-Apr-13 21:49:43

'I'll have the cream of some young guy'. CHORTLE.

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:51:07

He said it's OK you can watch broad church if you want! But I said no no let's see What it's like then! Stupid me! She just flipped over a bike over a car! I mean seriously it's like a cartoon!

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Mon 01-Apr-13 21:51:48

My DP does an excellent impression of Garth doing 'Foxy Lady'.

Might see if he'll do it for me tonight..!

wink

Trills Mon 01-Apr-13 21:52:12

YABU - "not to my taste" is not the same as "pile of bollocks"

Lorelilee Mon 01-Apr-13 21:52:23

'If you're gonna spew, spew into this'.

I had a sleepover party for my 10th birthday and we watched this on VHS as it hadn't long come out. I loved it, plus it was a bit naughty so that helped!

That said, I did watch it not long ago and it's not as funny as I remember. Sometimes it's best not to revisit things you loved as a young 'un grin

I still love Garth though!

WildlingPrincess Mon 01-Apr-13 21:52:43

shock

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:53:21

It's that try too hard stupid funny kind! Does No one agree?! What if it was out now?

itsallyourownfault Mon 01-Apr-13 21:53:32

Get stoned and watch it. That's what it was designed for!

KenDoddsDadsDog Mon 01-Apr-13 21:54:16

Hang on, is it on TV ? (Watching frigging Olive the Ostrich with sick toddler)

ArteggsMonkey Mon 01-Apr-13 21:56:27

O

How can you not find Lara Flynn Boyle falling over the car funny? It's one of the best falls EVER in the history of cinema.

Next you'll be saying Bill and Ted is no good.

out2lunch Mon 01-Apr-13 21:57:38

stupid funny is the best kind of funny

Noooo I will not hear a word said against Bill & Ted!!

GreenEggsAndNichts Mon 01-Apr-13 21:58:57

It's Algonquin for "The good land."

Love Alice.

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 22:00:03

It's that try too hard stupid funny kind! Does No one agree?! What if it was out now?

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Mon 01-Apr-13 22:00:56

You had to be there. When it came out it was relevant...you can't watch it and relate it to your youth so to you it's just twaddle.

GreenEggsAndNichts Mon 01-Apr-13 22:02:11

Well now you're just repeating yourself grin

complexnumber Mon 01-Apr-13 22:02:40

you are lacking in something

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 22:02:55

The gun rack bit was only bit I have actually laughed mildly at !

Stoned you say?

No not on television dp owns it!

ArteggsMonkey Mon 01-Apr-13 22:03:39

HOW have you never seen it before? What have you been doing with your life?

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 01-Apr-13 22:05:11

<<he blows goats. I have proof>>

PaleHousewifeOfCumbriaCounty Mon 01-Apr-13 22:05:59

'Not today my good man, im feeling saucy! I think im gonna buy it.... Do yoh accept.... Cash?!'

Bezt.film.ever.

Me and my brother can hold entire conversations using only quotes from this film.

CelticPromise Mon 01-Apr-13 22:06:14

YABVU.

EXTREME CLOSE UP!!!

«snorts attractively»

GreenEggsAndNichts Mon 01-Apr-13 22:08:35

Hi, we're in... Deleware....

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 01-Apr-13 22:09:00

You had to see it at the time OP, which I have to say was not 22 years ago. <<puts fingers in ears and la la's a lot>>

I think I could probably quote it word for word and I'm not even embarrassed about it!

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 22:09:43

Are you all the viewers of you've been framed?

VivaLeBeaver Mon 01-Apr-13 22:10:06

I love ybf.

ArteggsMonkey Mon 01-Apr-13 22:10:07

I NEVER LEARNED TO READ!!

specialsubject Mon 01-Apr-13 22:10:28

we are not worthy!

and it is the reason why no-one of a certain age can listen to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' with straining their neck. :-)

ArteggsMonkey Mon 01-Apr-13 22:11:15

"If Benjamin were an ice cream flavour he'd be pralines and dick"

Euphemia Mon 01-Apr-13 22:11:28

Ass sphincter says what?

VivaLeBeaver Mon 01-Apr-13 22:11:52

I'm going to have to get it on DVD now.

BinksToEnlightenment Mon 01-Apr-13 22:13:15

Am I supposed to say I don't mind? Am I supposed to be a man? Well I do mind! I mind big time!

And you know what the worst part is? I never learned to read!!!!

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 22:14:35

He blows goats bit just happened. That was funny

BinksToEnlightenment Mon 01-Apr-13 22:16:28

You wait until Benjamin orders Pepsi-Cola in the middle of his Chinese takeaway order.

ArtVandelay Mon 01-Apr-13 22:16:29

YABU its one of the best films in the world ever.

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 01-Apr-13 22:16:39

See? It's dragging you in slowly. wink

Have you seen this boy?

VivaLeBeaver Mon 01-Apr-13 22:17:05

Ex-queeze me? Baking powder?

PaleHousewifeOfCumbriaCounty Mon 01-Apr-13 22:17:54

'Cassandraaaaaaaa!'

VivaLeBeaver Mon 01-Apr-13 22:17:59

Monkeys might fly outta my butt.

WW is fab. Try Dumb and Dumber next, That is brilliant. <arf>

Must get both of the WW on DVD. So funny!

I remember making my ex watch Airplane and Life of Brian and him not 'getting it'!
There was nothing left for it but to dump his sorry ass!

Schwing!

Ex-squeeze me?

WW trivia: they say it's set in Detroit, but it's acksherly based on a suburban part of Toronto where Mike Myers grew up, Scarborough, Ontario.

There is a donut shop in the movie called Stan Mikita's, who was a famous Detroit Red Wing (ice) hockey player. No such donut shop really exists, but in Toronto, and all over Canada in fact, there is a hugely successful coffee chain called Tim Hortons, who was an outstanding player for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Fact.

Betcha I killed the thread with that one grin

BinksToEnlightenment Mon 01-Apr-13 22:30:15

Hearts, you're, like, amazing

RubyGates Mon 01-Apr-13 22:31:05

snuffaluffagus Mon 01-Apr-13 22:46:39

God I love that film

MadamFolly Mon 01-Apr-13 22:51:57

Aw man, how are you partied out again?

FrubesOnTheCouch Mon 01-Apr-13 22:52:50

This is like one of those threads where the op doesn't believe they are being unreasonable when they are!

Not to mention the world's best rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody like EVERgringrin

threeforme Mon 01-Apr-13 23:10:17

I have used the pet name Babraham for all my babies! WW2 really was shit though, remember thinking that even at the time.

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 01-Apr-13 23:15:20

I'll have the cream of sum yung ey.

RunningAgain Mon 01-Apr-13 23:17:09

Me and my sister referenced it just this afternoon, when I said I could smell bacon, and she said she could definitely smell a pork product of some kind.

beverlymacker Mon 01-Apr-13 23:18:03

Lung butter and hurl

StuntNun Mon 01-Apr-13 23:23:46

It's a gun rack. I don't even own one gun let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack.

Sunnywithshowers Mon 01-Apr-13 23:37:33

Not.

Sunnywithshowers Mon 01-Apr-13 23:38:12

It's because of WW that I want everyone at my funeral to sing Bohemian Rhapsody while headbanging.

<classy>

CalamityJ Tue 02-Apr-13 01:47:21

YABVU. grin

It's the only duplicate videos (WW1 and 2) DH and I have. And the only films I can quote (how sad is that when people are quoting classics?)

If you're going to spew, spew into this etc. My DH quoted it to me the other day actually!

ScumbagCollegeDropout Tue 02-Apr-13 02:28:49

YAB sooooooo U it's not funny.

Unlike Wayne's World grin

Must watch it again.

ilovexmastime Tue 02-Apr-13 08:53:31

I'm crying with laughter just reading the quotes! Must get it on dvd...

daddyorchipsdaddyorchips Tue 02-Apr-13 09:06:27

Garth, I'm going to be frank.

Ok, can I still be Garth?

I think that may be from WW2 but they are both BRILLIANT!

Bertrude Tue 02-Apr-13 09:23:46

YABVVVVVVVVVVVU

Schwing!

<<sneaks in to add favourite oft quoted line>>

'The Shitty Beatles? Are they any good?'

'Nah, they suck'

'Ah, so it's not just a clever name then?'

OP - YABVU.
