Judah is scrolling through Amazon Prime.

Judah: "...Ice Pirates?"

Adam: "Oh yeah. That's the one with the space herpe."

Judah: "Space herpe?"

Me: "Space herpe."

Judah: "Not space herpes?"

Me and Adam, simultaneously and with identical inflections: "Well, there's only one."

I swear we don't rehearse this.

You guys can top this by simultaneously reciting identical versions of the Aristocrats joke.

(Ah, Ice Pirates. I can still recite almost word-for-word Harlan Ellison's diss of that. "It oughta be enshrined in the Academy of Dumb Stuff with such other sterling freaks of nature as the lima beam, poison ivy, the Edsel, and the singing of Billy Idol. ...all the grace and charm of a heavy object falling downstairs.")

You are awesome. That is all.

Well, now I know the next movie I want to search for on Netflix and/or YouTube...

Ice Pirates! Talk about a wonderful waste of time! I love that movie in the way you love wonderful-horrible B movies. I'll have to hunt that us and watch it again, sometime.

You need to share this and spread this movie to all who have yet to see it and stress the importance of protection to all.
thank you.

Yeah, sorry.I try not to comment, because to most people I am old and should shut-up, but you know what?
I am not that old, and space herpe should be a KNOWN quantity to ALL people, because I edumecate young oeoples on why the fuck they NEED the wear condoms and get TESTED.

I know of only a few other human beings who have seen that movie...

I know about 15 or 20 that I saw it with or discussed it with back when it first made the rounds of video rental stores and pay cable. ;)

Amusingly, Ice Pirates is one of the first movies I remember seeing on VHS.

Saw it on the big screen when it first came out. It may've in fact been sometime during its first week in the theaters.

Oh, gosh. Now I need to go find that because I haven't seen it since the first time it was on The Movie Channel, lo, these many moons ago.

I have, nevertheless, never forgotten the Space Herpe.

"Remember, we're all getting older."

I think it's my favorite bad movie. Though, quote it and you're guaranteed to receive puzzled stares in return.

Now, having read the other comments, I see you have sparked a little "I saw Ice Pirates and remember it" reunion. Light a freak candle in the dark and all the other matching freaks will gather. ;)

absolutely love the movie

I have yet to introduce the kids to it, but it's on my list of movies to find on DVD. Tomorrow, I pick up Johnny Dangerously from the library. LOL
