Last night we went to the Anchorman Quote Along at our favorite movie theater, The Alamo Drafthouse (the original theater where you can eat and drink during the movie)
Mustaches were a part of the night, of course
It was so funny to look around the theater and see everyone wearing mustaches.
The quote along was put on by a company called The Action Pack and they do them for other movies too. I've never been to one before (nor had I ever seen Anchorman) but I have been to a Master Pancake Theater (which is like the old Mystery Science Theater where they have people making fun of the movie up front) for Forest Gump. It was hysterical! The Drafthouse does quote alongs, Master Pancakes, girls nights and now...text alongs where you can text something to a certain number about the movie and it shows up on the screen (usually a terrible movie).
Jon wore his mustache the whole time (it was too big for me and was getting everywhere)
He also wore his maroon corduroys that only make appearances at special events
So back to Anchorman. I think I may have seen it right when it came out years ago but not the whole thing. I kind of hated it for the longest time so it being Jon's favorite movie, there was some tension haha. I LOVE Will Ferrell but for some reason had a bad taste in my mouth of Anchorman. Well...last night was a blast! It was super funny and I think it was because Jon quoted most of the movie and was belly laughing the entire time. The movie is just SO random and weird. I was laughing just listening to Jon crack up. I think most married people can agree that sometimes just watching your spouse have fun or doing something that they love is fun and rewarding in itself. They showed memorable quotes at the bottom of the screen so you were supposed to shout them out. They also had New Year's Eve blowers for the jazz flute scene. Before the movie started, the host conducted some funny games including a 'punt Baxter' contest and a chugging contest. One guy had to chug a pint of beer and a pint of milk...ewww! It was such a fun night and I am so glad I gave Anchorman a second chance. I loved all the celebrity cameos!
We've been watching a lot of good movies lately on Netflix. Our favorites have been The Client, Win-Win, and The Fan. Totally not normal Ruthie movies but I have been enjoying watching outside my normal genres.
Have you seen Anchorman? Did you like it?
Also, what are some good movies I should see? Seems like there aren't any good new releases lately...we've been watching a lot of old movies.
Stay classy blog land....oh and thanks for stopping by :-)
