Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Tommy Boy. Zoolander. Spaceballs. The Big Lebowski. National Lampoon’s Vacation. Old School. The Jerk. A Fish Called Wanda. Groundhog Day. Coming to America. Dumb and Dumber. Raising Arizona. Best in Show. Better off Dead. There’s Something About Mary. 40-Year-Old Virgin. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Airplane.


(this is most definitely an incomplete list of movies I find hilarious. there are many, many more)

but, I’m sure some of you are reading and are all “Ali has super rad taste in funny movies” but, you know, there will be some of you reading all “WHAT? Ali has the WORST movie taste. remind me to never ask her to recommend anything to me.”

comedy is such a personal thing. and I’ll admit this here…Flight of the Conchords? Well, while I think some of their songs are funny, the show, um, well, for me, um, not so much. I just don’t get it, I guess. Something else I don’t think is funny – MEET THE PARENTS. and  oh my good god can we please put an end to all of this I CAN HAZ shit??! LOLspeak needs to go away.

but here, I’ll give you this.

This line, in No Country for Old Men, sends me into a fit of giggles…

“Llewelyn, what’s in the satchel?”


so, it should come as no surprise that while I loved The Hangover movie (even though I *still* don’t get the Bradley Cooper thing) the very best part of the movie for me was this…


he = officially my very favorite person right now.

well, second favorite person. because the video I am about to show you of my boy, singing along to the end of the High School Musical 3 to a song he doesn’t know the words to, has been watched at least 887 times – by me -  in the last 2 days….

I mean, seriously, this could go viral, people.

It’s that good.

or maybe it’s like the satchel thing…ONLY hilarious to me…

  1. I love the na, na, na, na, let it go… haha.

    Also? That guy from The Hangover is wearing my purse! It’s from Roots! Too funny!

  2. I am SO with you on flight of the concords. After hearing everyone talk and talk about it, I borrowed the first season from a friend and only got 3-4 episodes in… its just… bleh.

    But— I do like a good LOLcat.

  4. Loved the hangover! And my fave part included that dude – move over fat jesus, i wasn’t talking to you. Ha!
    And I do get the Bradley Cooper hotness. Can’t explain it, but he’s sweet eye candy to me in that movie.

  5. I knew I loved you for a reason! I do not think Meet the Parents is funny either! And I’ve watched it more than once, and every time, I just don’t see it.

    Someone shared this in my feed reader and I was like YES! http://thismightsuck.tumblr.com/post/126630785

  7. High School Musical is an evil plot by the Disney Corporation.

    I mean, just one of their many evil plots.

  8. Ali now i know for sure you have something extra in your coffee.(wink wink)…

  9. Dude! I would rob banks, swindle old people out of their life savings, ANYTHING to unite with you and fund a plan to wipe LOLspeak totally out. Words..sweet, normal, every day words…can’t express my hatred of it!

    I haven’t seen The Hangover yet. I thought we were going to see it the weekend it came out, but Tool Man came home with the Curious Case of Benjamin Button and seriously, I wanted to claw my eyes out from the boredom, but then I’d defeat myself before seeing Bradley Cooper on a jumbo screen. Forgive me? What’s in the satchel? My heart, Ali. My big, old heart! πŸ™‚

  10. A “No” to Meet the Parents? Really? That surprises me.

    The Josh video is too funny.

    Comment by SciFi Dad on June 22, 2009
  11. I agree with almost all of your comedies. And Meet The Parents is cliched, stupid shit. I want to come live in your pocket and watch old 80s comedies and quote Spaceballs.

  12. Dude. I haaaaaate Ben Stiller and find him totally annoying! Same with LOLspeak. Good GOD.

  13. Aww crap I meant to also say that Josh is too cute. Does he ever look like you.

    Comment by Karen Sugarpants on June 22, 2009
  14. Meet the Parents IS NOT FUNNY.

    But Flight of the Conchords so is.

  15. I *told* you it was awesome! And I even promised satchels and delivered on it! πŸ™‚

    I say we watch it when you get to Atlanta – I imagine, with the way things work these days, it’ll be out on video by then. πŸ˜‰

  16. I do love Bradley Cooper, I think it’s the eyes. The Hangover was so excellent I can’t wait to buy it. I laughed so hard in the theatre which I don’t normally do! Your son is so funny, I just love the determination.

  17. Better Off Dead! There is no finer movie. heh

    Comment by Crystal on June 22, 2009
  18. I love your entire list of movies. I loved the Hangover. When the asian guy got out of the trunk and went ape shit, I pretty much lost it. I also loved it when Andy Bernard from the Office was all, “no he didn’t come inside of her. She hates semen!” when referencing his cheating girlfriend.

    Oh! Also, sometimes I like to spend my Sundays in bed watching Coming to America. It never gets old to me.

  19. “Numaaaa….belong…ahh…nuuhh HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL..aaaoohhh…HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL aoooo.”

  20. Kids with headphones singing along to songs they don’t know. It doesn’t get any funnier than that.

    It took me a long time to learn to appreciate lolcats, but now I just think they’re so, you know, lol.

    Comment by Kath on June 23, 2009
  21. Too funny! I just posted a video of my Middle (age 5) singing.

    Perhaps our offspring could have a “sing-off”?

    Heh. Better stock up on the earplugs yo.

  22. askudafkugkrgueborhgoeirh… High School Musical! πŸ™‚

  24. Jason just got a diaper dude bag at our baby shower and, after seeing the Hangover, he will only call it his baby satchel.

  25. if this game has 4 player split solar panel (or split live view screen esque) Co-op then we will be getting it. If it doesnt i wont be getting it… does anyone know if it does or doesnt?

  26. Most people I don’t forget that are into MMORPG’s prefer PC online console, which is mainly cause of the fact that you don’t have too walk out pocket and buy a new HDD just for one game. If the profits go down, then I can notice happening. But WOW is nevertheless holding strong with just by means of online PC MMORPG. Why do I get the feeling that Activision has a number in this.
