"Um, schwing?"
5 stars

Oh, come on. Everybody loved this movie the first time they saw it...

It's not the best film inspired by Saturday Night Live, but it's pretty damn good.

So many quotes...So many funny bits and scenes and Mike Myers tucking his hair behind his ears more often than Christian Slater and Dennis Miller run their hands through their hair together.

The plot is extremely predictable, but there are lots of good, funny dialogue (including some speaking-to-the-camera monlogues from bit player Ed O'Neill) and sight gags (Dana Carvey lip-synching "Foxy Lady," complete with pelvic thrusts). It's goofy at times, but there's a certain amount of intelligence there that's missing from most of the parody films these days.

There's also the matter of headbanging in the car along with Bohemian Rhapsody, something EVERYONE in my high school did at least once the year this movie came out.

In the end, it's fluff, but it's funny fluff.

I know I don't have his looks. I know I don't have his money. I know I don't have his connections, his knowledge of fine wines. I know sometimes when I eat I get this clicking sound in my jaw...
