I've used the Super Soaker method before by lm (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri May 07, 2010 at 12:37:04 PM EST
My eldest has a penchant for sleeping too late. The results of the water gun were so comical that I almost felt guilty.

call for extreme measures, though Mrs. Ha would probably have to take care of the wet bedding.

Never seen The Big Chill by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #3 Fri May 07, 2010 at 01:03:00 PM EST
Or that other 80's movie with that guy in it that everyone liked so much. The one named after the muppet. Saint Oscar's on Fire or something like that.

Earth First!
(We can strip mine the rest later.)

I prefer The Breakfast Club by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #4 Fri May 07, 2010 at 01:12:30 PM EST
cause like, they're the same age as me.

I saw Saint Elmo's Fire once, I don't recall much about it.

Aged pretty well.

Less Than Zero was my favorite of the time by lm (2.00 / 0) #10 Fri May 07, 2010 at 03:20:43 PM EST
It's been ages since I've watched it so I don't know how well it's held up.

Breakfast Club was decent but it always felt false to me. It explored the idea of the next school day but it never presented the way it would have panned out. Because come Monday they all would have settled comfortably back into their little clicks and happily ignored each other all over again.

Big Chill by ad hoc (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri May 07, 2010 at 01:24:15 PM EST
is a copy, as I'm sure you've heard.

The first (and best) is Return of the Secaucus 7 (available via Netflix streaming).

Yeah, I don't think our library has it by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri May 07, 2010 at 01:29:03 PM EST
so I'd have to order it from Amazon.

We don't have Netflix by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri May 07, 2010 at 01:38:13 PM EST
at our current rate of watching 3 movies a month, we'll exhaust the library system by 2100.

Not being snarky, it would be just another waste of money for us.

The Big Chill by duxup (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri May 07, 2010 at 03:31:34 PM EST
Went back and watched it a bit.  I thought it was meh.  I didn't think they established the characters.  It felt very generic and dry.

was good because Kevin Costner did his finest acting in playing a dead guy.

And it was the first time I'd ever seen Jeff Goldblum, who I still really like.

Kevin Costner in casket== best part by johnny (2.00 / 0) #13 Sat May 08, 2010 at 02:18:25 PM EST
Followed by the hot young woman what's-her-name stretching, followed by opening musical selection at the funeral, which did make me laugh out loud in movie theater, probably thought crude by people who didn't get the joke.

She has effectively checked out. She's an un-person of her own making. So it falls to me.--ad hoc (in the hole)
That would be Meg Tilly by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #14 Sat May 08, 2010 at 02:31:15 PM EST
there's an already an option.

Was that "You can't always get when you want" on church organ?

I've never seen The Big Chill.

Chilling, isn't it?
