    I guess this is my week for picking on coworkers, but something happened today that I just absolutely found unbelievable. The person of which I speak is in her late 50's or early 60's, and has never, at least not to my knowledge, lived in a cave. You won't believe this, but she had never heard of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." I know, crazy, right? I had done something for her and she said "Danke Shoen," and then proceeded to sing it. She asked me if I knew who sang the song and before I'd even had a chance to answer, she said, "Wayne Newton!" I replied, "Ferris Bueller sang it too." Then she said...

Wait, who?

    I said, "Ferris Bueller. You know... from Ferris Bueller's Day Off?"

    "I don't think I've ever heard of that. What is it?"


    So this made me wonder if some of my readers had missed out on some of the greatest movies of my generation. I would absolutely qualify Ferris Bueller in that list. "What list?" you ask? This list...

Mr. Snarky's Friggin Movie List

Snarky says, "If you ain't seen these movies, there's something wrong witchoo."

 This is NOT a comprehensive list of every movie you should watch, or even my top movies or anything. It's just stuff that I feel that everyone should see at some point. These are all from the 80's and are in no particular order.

"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" - The movie that made Matthew Broderick a star, also has a young Charlie Sheen cameo. A classic of my time.

"The Breakfast Club" - As Jay said in Dogma, "Judd Nelson was fucking HARSH!" Yes he was, Jay. Yes. He. Was.

"Fast Times at Ridgemont High" - Jeff Spicoli is amazing. That's all I can say.

Who would've guessed that this guy would end up with a pair of best actor academy awards one day?

"The Princess Bride" - Now, I know that not everyone gets this movie. Kind of like I don't get "This is Spinal Tap." I've had people tell me it was boring. I simply say to them, "You're boring!"

Any or all of the following - "48 Hrs.," "Beverly Hills Cop," "Coming to America." There was a time when Eddie Murphy was the funniest man alive, hands down. These are, in my opinion, his three best.

Finally, I'll go with "Caddyshack." Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield. Hilarity ensues. No, it's not the greatest movie ever, and maybe not even the funniest Bill Murray movie. But there's
something about it that just feels like my generation. Also, it was the first movie I'd seen in the theater with boobs! 

So it's got THAT goin' for it... which is nice.
 Gotta go!

Let me know what you think.

Down there.

In the comments section.

Yeah, there.

Mr. Snarky


  1. Are these boobs on YOUR chest? Do your boobs only appear in the theater? I have to say that I always watch movies in the theater with boobs. In fact, my boobs rarely ever go anywhere without me and I rarely go anywhere with them either. I may have to have a face to face (or breast to breast) with your boobs to get to the bottom of this. Now.... what was your post about? Oh YEAH! So..... here are my 80's picks for the list:

    "The Labyrinth" - (David Bowie man! With or without the boobs!)

    "The Goonies" - I know it isn't at all as cool to watch it now, but still.

    "Outsiders" (um.... duh!)

    Lost Boys (pretty cool flick back in the day when Jason Patric was cool and Corey Haim was alive and adorable.)

    "Sixteen Candles" ~&~ "Pretty in Pink"

    I can't believe you didn't list "Stand by Me!"

    You must have been way to preoccupied with boobs to have missed out on those movies.

    1. As I'm sure you're aware, I am MISTER Snarky. MISTER Snarky has NO boobs of his own. I was referring to the boobs of a character named Lacey Underall. As far as your list, I thought about all of those except for Labyrinth, which was never one of my movies, Pretty in Pink, also not one I really cared about, and I actually forgot about Stand by Me. Funny that Rob Reiner directed Stand by Me, The Sure Thing, When Harry Met Sally, and The Princess Bride, which are four of my all time favorites, and also, This is Spinal Tap, which is considered a classic by many people, and I can't stand it.
