Bad Dialogue? I love it.

We watched Sharknado on Monday night. It takes a special kind of actor to work in movies like this. Not everyone can deliver that hilarious faux serious dialogue without cracking a smile. Oh how I wish I would at least get a chance to audition for a speaking part in the sequel. There has to be a sequel.

Or better still... Live on Broadway... Sharknado: the Musical. I've got to believe that bad dialogue is more hilarious live.

I love it. I love when I am laughing at it in a public place and no one understands why I am laughing.

IFC ran the movie The Warriors this evening. If like me, you too enjoy really badly written scripts, then this 1979 gem is a must see.

Does it surprise anyone that I don't really "fit in" in my surroundings. I have friends, I interact with the world. But there aren't many people that I have met who can truly appreciate the Gertrude Steinishness of poorly written (and delivered) pseudo-conversations.

Mostly after watching sharknado, I spent the rest of the evening begging HusbandBob to write me a horrible screenplay and then take me to one of the Carolinas for movie production. I'm envisioning a Blair Witch Project meets Flight of the Concords.

Once you get into the groove of the absurd, it's hard to leave.

My absolute only regret for not having cable/satellite anymore is not getting Sci-Fi. Yet, there are still many awful Mystery Science 3000 movies out there for our kind;-p

I do the same thing! Sometimes, I love when the hubby puts on movies from the 70's cause all I do is sit there and giggle the whole time. If you end up making that movie, I SO want to be in it!!

Mee too! I wanna be in it, too. I want to mignore the laws of physics and nature and deliver bad dialog with profound solemnity. "We have to get through, John - for the children."
I loved the part in Sharknado where he plunges back into the shark and pulls the girl out, alive!
