Any movie where warring tribes of youths settle their differences by having a dance-off has to be classic! Plus, Steve Harvey.

Yes, I was just thinking this looks awesome. I wish I could dance all agressive like that!

@d@ml (nordicskilla), Thursday, 29 January 2004 22:56 (sixteen years ago) link

i'm going on sunday!!

Looks like the Run-DMC vs. Jason Nevins video for "It's Like That" extended to an hour and a half or so. Not exactly "Citizen Kane," I'd imagine.

As if that's a bad thing!

El Diablo Pitbullbotico (Nicole), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:10 (sixteen years ago) link

This movie looks great. Better than 'Drumline' if that's even possible!

Starring Roger out of Sister Sister...

shit. maybe i won't go after all!

lauren (laurenp), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:12 (sixteen years ago) link

This is one of those movies where the entertainment value surely lies in between the big numbers.

Apparently it's a remake of this classic beta tape.

That is the first movie I went to unaccompanied by an adult! I hold it dear.

El Diablo Robotico (Nicole), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:29 (sixteen years ago) link

I was just saying yesterday how this looks like the peak of the genre dance movies (that Jessica Alba one, that Julia Stiles one) that have been springing up of late. Not gonna waste 10 bucks to laugh at it in the theater but will definitely look forward to seeing it on cable.

oops (Oops), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:34 (sixteen years ago) link

Oh, I'd LOVE to see this in the theater, but apparently The Butterfly Effect is being deemed one of the worst movies of all time, so it's a tough decision I have to make this weekend.

@d@ml (nordicskilla), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:39 (sixteen years ago) link

This is such a charming and wonderful sentence.

@d@ml (nordicskilla), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:40 (sixteen years ago) link

Anyone notice the impossible moves they do in the commercial? Or maybe I've just never seen anyone do them; like the guy that slides straight forward across the floor on his forehead with his feet straight up in the air, what's that!?

I turned down reviewing this so I could do The Big Bounce

VERY BAD MISTAKE

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:49 (sixteen years ago) link

jesus, what the fuck was I thinking!!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:49 (sixteen years ago) link

I want to see The Big Bounce too!

@d@ml (nordicskilla), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:50 (sixteen years ago) link

it kinda sucks. it's a really, really weird movie--it affects this tone that's so light and breezy the movie just floats away. for a movie involving heists & femmes fatales there's absolutely NO tension, no conflict, no... nothing! the reveals at the end are just bewildering. really weird movie.

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 29 January 2004 23:59 (sixteen years ago) link

Anticipating "You Got Served" = "Are You Being Served?"

jazz odysseus, Friday, 30 January 2004 01:01 (sixteen years ago) link

I hate to think of the miss Slocombe's pussy gags we'd get in 2004

pete s, Friday, 30 January 2004 01:03 (sixteen years ago) link

A hilarity from this review:

"You Got Served" (the title is street talk for "you have been defeated and thoroughly humiliated")

Yeah, thanks.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Sunday, 1 February 2004 04:28 (sixteen years ago) link

This movie looks great. Better than 'Drumline' if that's even possible!

It isn't!

Jordan (Jordan), Sunday, 1 February 2004 04:32 (sixteen years ago) link

Details?

Ned Raggett (Ned), Sunday, 1 February 2004 04:36 (sixteen years ago) link

Oh, I haven't seen it Ned, I'm just saying it's not possible for it to be better than Drumline.

Jordan (Jordan), Sunday, 1 February 2004 04:39 (sixteen years ago) link

I think every review ever has to be obligated to inform clueless old folx what the title means.

There had better be some motherfuckin' 808-bangin' electro traxxx on the soundtrack

nate detritus (natedetritus), Sunday, 1 February 2004 05:32 (sixteen years ago) link

As far as "Butterfly Effect" goes, both the name and the appearance of Ethan Suplee -- more accurately, the juxtaposition thereof -- are oddly compelling in a holding-in-laughter kinda way.

nate detritus (natedetritus), Sunday, 1 February 2004 05:33 (sixteen years ago) link

my understanding is that the breakdancing is only intermittant so i'm waiting for dollar theater.

no way this touches drumline. dallas austin is working on another movie called jellybeans, it's about roller disco. my breath is bated.

cinniblount (James Blount), Sunday, 1 February 2004 07:40 (sixteen years ago) link

god seeing breakin 2: electric boogaloo at the old dollar theater on ben hill in east point still ranks high on my 'pop culture as surrogate parent/sibling/lover' list

cinniblount (James Blount), Sunday, 1 February 2004 07:42 (sixteen years ago) link

[[faints]]

NB: I have not seen Drumline

M Matos (M Matos), Sunday, 1 February 2004 08:07 (sixteen years ago) link

he needs to make playground: the movie and get like tatyana ali's lil sister to play iesha.

cinniblount (James Blount), Sunday, 1 February 2004 08:23 (sixteen years ago) link

I gotta see drumline!!

blount have you seen honey?

s1ocki (slutsky), Sunday, 1 February 2004 17:53 (sixteen years ago) link

four months pass...
There is going to be a sequel! I couldn't be more thrilled.

El Diablo Robotico (Nicole), Saturday, 12 June 2004 13:59 (sixteen years ago) link

You Got Reserved?

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 12 June 2004 14:21 (sixteen years ago) link

Can I Take Your Order?

Crickets Dance On Tequila Booty (Barima), Saturday, 12 June 2004 14:33 (sixteen years ago) link

This and Drumline never made it to the UK, I'm sure. Which is a shame, it's stuff like this that inspires me to dance.

Are You Getting Served?

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Saturday, 12 June 2004 16:20 (sixteen years ago) link

Haha.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 12 June 2004 16:24 (sixteen years ago) link

Drumline kicked so much ass. Like Any Given Sunday, but with drums.
