Como estan bloggers?


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 :-)

OMG! I not only LOVE Anchorman but can quote the whole thing..."Baxter? Bark twice if you're in Milwaukee" is my favorite line! What a fun and different thing to do!

I love Alamo Drafthouse! I was so sad when we moved and weren't close to one anymore.

I haven't watched Anchorman in ages!

What a fun night!!!!!!

Lauren said...

Wow sounds so fun! What a great idea :) I too had a bad experience with Anchorman and unlike you, have not tried to see it again. I've convinced myself I don't like it. Maybe I'll have to give it another go :)

Amira said...

This sounds like the funnest date night ever! I am honestly so jealous. Anchorman is one of my FAVORITE movies of all times. "What? You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole wheel of cheese? Heck, I'm not even mad. That's amazing."

Will Ferrell is one of my favorite comedic actors :) My boyfriend calls him his brother because they were in the same fraternity, but of course not at the same location or during the same time.

That place you went to looks like a blast! I wish my college town had a similar venue.

Although it's super crude, I can't help but LOVE Step Brothers! I think I know almost every line of that movie!

Amanda said...

One of my nicknames for a long time was Veronica Corningstone because I wanted to be a broadcast journalist. ;) Glad you had fun, and that Jon wore his special fancy pants lol. Is it June yet?!

The first time I saw Anchorman was on an airplane and I HATED it. Since then I have seen it about 10 times, and find it funnier each time. It's just one of those films that grows on you!

Michelle P said...

I feel the same way as you about that movie! And why aren't there any good movies out right now?!? AHhh, I can't wait until the Vow though.

Jessi said...

One of the classics! Particularly since we lived in San Diego for so long ;) We have it on dvd and pull it out periodically for a good laugh.

Breanna said...

I love alamo drafthouse :) I don't believe I've seen anchorman, but I love the mustaches you guys got :)

Karla said...

Like you I have only seen bits and pieces of this movie. I guess its one of those things I HAVE to do soon! But I know exactly what you mean .. you have fun just watching your other half have fun! Let me tell you Tevo is my husbands best friend.. put it this way when something “Funny” happens while watching the Office.. This guy will be the one to rewind and play it like 10times and YES it is HALARIOUS after the 10TH TIME!! Hahah

adore anchorman, and most anything featuring the amazing Will Ferrell, we always say "i love lamp" in random moments in our house. "glass case of emotion" is also a fave.

Mallorie Owens said...

I saw Anchorman as soon as it came out and hated it the first time! I went for the longest time thinking it was the dumbest movie ever and then my brother convinced me to watch it again and I thought it was hilarious so now it's one of my favs :) Glad you guys had fun!

Lindsay said...

Hey Rudy! I like your blog :) Mike and I LOVE Anchorman... we even have anchorman quotes in the 'favorite quotes' section of our facebooks, and we say them in daily conversation on a regular basis! Sounds like you had a blast, you will have to take me to this theater next time I visit :) Haboo

Elle Sees said...

Alana said...

OMG MIKE AND I LOVE ANCHORMAN. It's one of the first things we bonded over. And when Mike was doing training in San Antonio we went to the Alamo Drafthouse and it was amazing! How awesome is it that they handed out mustaches?

Nicole said...

Amanda C. said...

I wish we had a movie theatre like that around here. That would be awesome. I love the movie Anchorman. I could quote it all day long...milk was a bad choice.

CMae said...

I've not seen Anchorman! I've never been a big Will Ferrell fan :(

I'm looking forward to seeing "The Vow" which I am taking my fiance' to! :) Comes out V day weekend! I would recommend reading the book first-- it's a short read! :) Hoping the movie is very similar to the book !
