Rock Me, Sexy Jesus


Tonight we watched Hamlet 2. All in all, not a great movie about high school drama clubs, but the last half hour was worth it.

5 Reasons we kinda liked this movie:

1. Rock Me Sexy Jesus Production- Jesus moonwalking on the water and talking on a cell phone with a swimmer's body while in a dago tee, skinny jeans, and cowboy boots - yes, please!

2. Elisabeth Shue - Something about her makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Maybe because she looks a lot like my friend Jaime and I have fond memories of watching Adventures in Babysitting again and again and again. She plays herself in this movie and is really great. By far the best actor in the movie.

3. Tuscon Gay Chorus rendition of Someone Saved My Life Tonight.

4. The beginning montage featuring the highlights of the main character's acting career.

5. "I'm in a cage. I'm Nicolas Cage... In leaving Las Vegas, starring my very good friend, Elisabeth Shue." Probably the funniest lines of the movie.

I'm not going to go out of my way to recommend it, but you get the idea. It's the kind of movie we both decided would get more funny with repeat viewings and less sobriety.

I watched this last week! Elizabeth Shue was so great. I laughed a lot so it was surprising how moved I was by the last part. "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" gets me every time.

I know! I thought she so funny and the frequent use of the phrase "cookoo bananas" really upped my enjoyment of the movie, as well. So funny you watched it last week, too. And SYTYCD last week? Did you see it? It was just too much.
