Another day, another movie pick based on my ~shallowness~ lololol4evar.





Or, as I like to call it Keanu Reeves In a Wetsuit. DUUUUUUDE. :D

And don't forget, Patrick Swayze (♥) with bleached blond hair.



The plot is so insane. Keanu...I mean "Johnny Utah" (best name ever) as an undercover FBI agent who infiltrates a gang of surfing bank robbers who wear rubber masks of ex-Presidents when they pull their heists. There's an epic tandem jump out of an airplane...the search for, like "the big cowabunga from Down Unda" or something. AND world class crazy-ass Gary Busey is in it, too! SO LUDICROUSLY AWESOME, I LOVE IT.

When I was a teenager, I used to rent a worn-out copy of this movie everytime I had to babysit for my brother. He was ~thrilled~, as you can imagine. I finally got a copy on DVD for $5 last year. SCORE!!!

See? Keanu In A Wetsuit. DUUUUUUDE.




...and Keanu, wet. What's not to love about this movie?!?!? DUUUUUUDE.




I'm not ashamed to admit that I have a faded copy of this pic still hanging on my wall. Rawr, DUUUUUUDE, rawrrrr.

LOL I love Point Break. Shit is epic. And yes, I also had that picture of Keanu in the rain on my dorm/apartment wall for all 4 years of college.

You can't go wrong with vintage Patrick Swayze :)

Totally.

Well, in my case, I could do without Road House. That's my brother's favorite movie & we watch it ALL.THE.DAMN.TIME. I make so much fun of that movie......

Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen Road House.

Would it be good to avoid it?

Oh, it's not bad, it's just so...they show it on TNT when they do "Movies For Guys That Like Movies", if that tells you anything. Patrick Swayze plays a bouncer @ a road house (called the Double Deuce, ~trivia question~ lol) & the town is controlled by this corrupt asshole & everyone is afraid of him except Dalton (PS's character) & he goes about bringing The Man down. I only scoff @ it because it's become such a family joke ;P

Oh god... 'Movies for Guys who Like Movies'- they like to show Iron Eagle. I HATE that movie. HATE HATE HATE it. I cry every time someone puts it on. Not only that, there are THREE SEQUELS.

bringing the Man down... that is my new favorite phrase.

as for the meme, I'm stuck on days 20 and 26. I have NO idea.

LMAO "Iron Eagle" was another one we watched ALL.THE.DAMN.TIME when we were kids. I've never seen any of the sequels (thank goodness).

~bringing the Man down~...I couldn't think of a better way to put it ;) (and it literally sort of fits what happens lol)

I'm not sure what they consider "action" movies. My definition is probably really different, so I'm just gonna go with it lol. Day 26 is causing me a bit of a problem, too.

OMG YOUR ICON! I FLOVE PEARLS BEFORE SWINE!!!

Before we got a dvd player, we used to watch a lot of tv during lunch. The movie channels tend to show the same five movies and only those movies for a month. I once saw 'National Treasure 2' six times in a week and a half. I didn't like Nick Cage to begin with, but seeing that now makes me cry every time I see him in ANYTHING.

I love pearls too! Its one of the underrated comics out there. :)
I like it when they make word puns and the animals go after the writer at the end.

Oh god, I know what you mean. If I see Four Christmases again, I'm gonna break shit. I don't get it, there are TONS of movies out there, but they run the same damn ones allllll the time. I haven't seen either of the National Treasure movies...

I didn't discover the comic until last November or December, but it's quickly become my favorite.

I've never seen Four Christmases. Isn't that the one with Reese and that one dude?

Don't worry, you aren't missing anything!

Yeah, it's got Reese Witherspoon & Vince Vaughn. Kristin Chenoweth, Mary Steenburgen & Dwight Yoakum are in it, too. It's a funny enough movie, I've just seen it too many times in too short of a time period ;)

I might watch it, I like Dwight Yoakam.

Lol, I like Point Break. Ha, you have the picture on your wall? That's awesome. He does look good wet, doesn't he!?

I do. I don't remember where I got it, but it's all folded & creased & shit, but I just can't take it down. (Maybe I should print out a new copy lol.)

I've seen this movie countless times but still, I cannot get over Swayze's hair in this movie. It's just... IT DISTRACTS ME AND IN MY HEAD I'M ALL "WTF IS WROOOONG. WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT TO HIM?!" Yeah. I've seen it more than once and that's practically my reaction ever time because I just can't get over it. /lame info for you/

Inorite? It's sooo...odd...to see his hair like that. And it's even odder that he's seemingly adopted Keanu's laidback/possibly stoned/surfer dude persona. I'm always like "Bohdi, shouldn't you not be putting Baby in a corner or keeping an eye on Ponyboy or doing pottery with Demi Moore instead of robbing banks & looking for the ultimate wave?"
