feste_sylvain is here, and we've been talking about absolutely terrible movies that I love unreservedly. And when I love things unreservedly, I bounce! I dance! I make little gleeful sounds!

So we have a small stack of truly awful movies, and I ask him to pick one.

He picks "The Pirate Movie".

I squee, bounce, and do a little booty-shaking dance.

He melts from the dance and squee. Melts!


Now we watch "The Pirate Movie", which is staggeringly awful and fabulous in its awfulness. (I know slipjig loves me because he actually learned its worst song, "Pumpin and Blowin'" (which won the Razzie that year!), to play at my birthday party.)

Haven't people fallen in love with you thanks to your bounce and squee? In other words, I really hope you weren't surprised. :-)

I love that movie.

Give me a happy ending! Everytime! We'll kiss and makeup - that's a very peaceful sign (Everything will work out fine!)

I secretly kind of love that film, too.

It has become blaringly obvious that there are many movies I have not seen.

Oh! Speaking of...email on its way.

[ETA - oh wait! OMG...watching the trailer...holy crap! I think I did see this movie!!! When I was *really* little!!!]

So I'm NOT the only person on the planet who owns a copy of that movie?!?!?

Well, I think I've found what I'm going to watch when I get off work tonight. :)

You only like that film because at heart, all you really want is a happy ending!

How many times have I seen that movie? I have lost count! Man, now I may have to find a copy to keep, it's just so much fun!

Mabel: Frederic, you're not gay, are you?
Frederic: [high voice] No!
[clears throat and in a lower voice]
Frederic: No.
Mabel: The way you and the Pirate King get around in those rather feminine, pleated shirts and all that leather.
Frederic: Mabel!
Mabel: Hey! I'm not prejudiced. I mean, what does this country got a navy for? Screw 'em if they can't take a joke!

We all give in our own little ways. *bows*

Oh, and I'm totally bringing Gymkata to Thanksgiving. Unless, of course, you want to give The Apple another go.

We can make time for both!

Not a great movie -- but bags of fun.
18th-Oct-2009 12:41 pm (UTC) - Love it!!
I just showed some of that movie to PerlDiver... Pumpin' and Blowin' is on YouTube! THe end sequence is as well. Hilarious! I particularly loved the whole "Tarantara" thing with the police...

I think my favorite bit of that movie might be when the pirates rush the door, then stop to ring the bell. But no one gets it when I say (possibly at inappropriate times), "Avon calling!"
