one of the greatest screenplays ever written....
"Either we're going down, or they are....... Kirk out!"
I do not mean to pry, but you don't by any chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand?
It truly shocked me to see RETROplex highlighting films from 1987, their Silver Anniversary!
I think TPB has weathered better than any of them.
Well, not quite yet a quarter century. The movie actually was released in September of 1987 (September 25, to be exact), so THAT'S when it will turn 25.
I will say, though, that if I kept a running tally of the number of quotes from pop culture sources that I drop into everyday speech (often without realizing it), TPB would probably come in second behind The Simpsons. (Not sure what would be third. Maybe Caddyshack.) Heck, my life has been such a frenetic exercise in cat-herding the last couple of years that "Let me explain.....no, there is no time, let me sum up...." and "Move the.....thing! And the other thing!" are practically daily occurrences.
My wife got me this T-shirt last Christmas:
She has a matching one (pink) with Vizzini's head that has a big "Inconceivable!" with "I do not think it means what you think it means" in small print underneath (couldn't find it on google image search).
And the next time we get to discussing great Academy Award crimes around here, let's not leave out the fact that the Academy voters picked that saccharine dreck "I've Had the Time of My Life" from Dirty Dancing over this song.
