Because there’s more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking

You know what’s really annoying? I mean, INCREDIBLY annoying. Like when you get a hair hanging down from the back of your sleeve and you’re walking and then the hair brushes up against you so you try to scratch your arm but you can’t EVER FIND IT and you have to go on like that, possibly for HOURS? It’s this level of annoying I’m talking about.

As annoying as someone who just WILL NOT get to the point.

I just want you in the right place to fully appreciate HOW ANNOYED I get in this situation.

Are you ever in the middle of a conversation and you make a reference to a very well-known movie or teevee show, and the other person doesn’t get it?

Like, “Oh my GOSH, that dude is so a Ned Ryerson!”

Blink blink blink.

“Yeah … if you could go ahead and do that, that’d be great.”

Blinky blink.

“Flames … on the sides of my face … burning … heaving breaths …”


It’s enough work just being witty and charming, you know? Without having to deal with other people’s pop culture failings. There are just some movies EVERYONE should have seen.

Unless, you know, I haven’t seen it. Then probably it’s not that important.


Not really.

If I were making a LIST, which I’m not, but if I were, because I AM, I’d add the following to the four I’ve mentioned thus far:

  • Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
  • Spaceballs
  • Ghostbusters
  • Back to the Future (at LEAST the first two)
  • Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  • Pulp Fiction (full disclosure: I HAVE NOT SEEN THIS.)
  • The Princess Bride

There are definitely a whole hunking lot more than that, but that’s all I personally OWN, and my memory isn’t extending beyond that. Besides, I have to pack: I can’t do ALL the work around here.

What are the movies EVERYONE should see at some point? Surely I’ve left off a ton. (And if you list one I haven’t seen, I promise I’ll watch it so I can get all your jokes.)
