Mary and friends at restaurant, because of Matt Dillon's bizarre laugh.

Animals taking drugs is always classic, have to vote for that.

Just noticed an extra option,' cheese when it's clearly Brie time baby' which should be merged with the one immediately before it.

Billy Dods, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 11:33 (7 years ago) Permalink

I posted here and it vanished :/

I voted 'Healy tries to revive Puffy' as it stands up to repeated viewing better than the (in)famous zipper and hair gel scenes.

the cops scene always busts me up.

this is a really fucking excellent comedy.

When Ben Stiller says "Brett ... Fahv-ra?"

I tried to watch this because I adore Jonathan Richman, but it was truly one of the worst pieces of shit I've ever had the misfortune to sit in front of. Just pitiful.

yeah I love Dumb & Dumber but this movie is mad overrated. I'm torn between voting for Harland Williams talking about cheese or one of the musical sequences (Richman or Build Me Up Buttercup).

like I'm supposed to remember what Matt Dillon's name in this not-worth-a-second-viewing thing is. I guess Healy. Anything w/ him and the dog, then.

Dr Morbius, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 13:47 (7 years ago) Permalink

i liked the movie and i don't remember his name. quit patting yourself on the back.

s1ocki, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 13:48 (7 years ago) Permalink

the only thing about this movie that is good is brett favre.

I'm not really a Ben Stiller fan :/

Billy Dods is the one assuming we know the character names, s1ocki, get a chill vaccine.

ok can we at least agree on WHICH cheese-related button we cheese-voters should be clicking on? I think I'm going to click on "Brie time, baby"

Alex in Baltimore, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:02 (7 years ago) Permalink

anything with the dog. or "seven minute abs"

stevie, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:12 (7 years ago) Permalink

the gal with the leathery tan made me laugh, along w/ Dillon & dog. That's it.

Dr Morbius, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:13 (7 years ago) Permalink

thinking back on the film as i read this list, i'm imagining matt dillon acting much like kevin dillon does in entourage.

Gukbe, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:16 (7 years ago) Permalink

Best moment is not mentioned: the dark screen after the end credits.

nathalie, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:17 (7 years ago) Permalink

wouldn't a chill vaccine vaccinate you AGAINST chilling out? cuz then that's what YOU had. SNAP.

s1ocki, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:20 (7 years ago) Permalink

guys, who wants to do the zing thread honours here.

s1ocki, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:21 (7 years ago) Permalink

we should do this for Harold & Kumar which i only just saw the other day

blueski, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:29 (7 years ago) Permalink

isn't kevin dillon just doing a matt dillon impersonation for entourage?

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:31 (7 years ago) Permalink

his character is sort of like what matt dillon's brother would be like if he had one!!

s1ocki, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:33 (7 years ago) Permalink

whoa

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 18 July 2007 14:35 (7 years ago) Permalink

Wish I had seen and voted on this. Now I'm thinking of the "Tucker drops his keys" scene and rofling myself to sleep.
