OMG--imagine if we could pull this off!

Whiling away the last few minutes of my workday just now, I swung by Princess Sparkle Pony's site and found this post about the upcoming Oliver Stone Chimpy-biopic.

Hilarious comments were already in play, including one by the brilliant KarenZipDrive:
Holy cow!
Stone's movie looks like it might become the next "Mommie Dearest."
You gotta wonder how this project was snagged away from John Waters.
As for Thandie Rice, a little lip collagen would have helped a lot.
Regardless, I plan to be first in line to see it- and yes, I plan to talk back to the screen like a mofo.
I dropped a comment about the movie possibly achieving Rocky Horror status and wished that we could all--everyone on my 'groll, everyone out there in Reality land, all us blue people with brains in our heads and irreverent cussing laughter in our hearts--you know who you are!--what if we could ALL go to a showing of the movie together!?

Can you imagine!? Dr. Monkey would start screeching and throwing poo before the opening credits even began, and it would be downhill from there! The only reason we wouldn't all be arrested is that Fran would talk the cops into cutting us some slack for God's sake!

Oh dear, look at these screen captures from the trailer:
I don't want to imagine W dressed this way, dancing this way--with anyone or anything.

Crazy Eyes can only dream she could look this good--or this alert.

I'd rather see a Tarantino version of this with Chimpy's legs being chopped off!

DCup said...

Oh no! I have been actively ignoring this movie because the reality sucks ass so hard.

But you guys, including Karenzipdrive with her funny self, are making hard to ignore!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I guess it was only a matter of time after all.

Spartacus said...

Hey! I think Josh Brolin is a dead ringer for Chimpy. Isn't that worth the price of a ticket?

FranIAm said...

That is hilarious!!! and thanks for the linky love!

Randal Graves said...

@getkristilove: heh heh.

GKL--comment gold, man! "Gonna bark all day, little doggy?"

DCup--I don't think I could stomach it unless I went with lots of snarky people who would yell at the screen!

Barbara--They've made movies about less, you know?

Spartacus--why you wanna be hatin' on Brolin like that?!

Fran--it would be blast! and you're welcome, as always!

Randal--a comment worthy of you, my brutha!

CDP said...

Very interesting casting in this. I'm not sure I'd be able to suspend disbelief enough to accept Thandie Newton as Condi.

no, I think it'd make me sick!

Slappy, I'll thank you to keep your racist generalizations to yourself. Get off my blog.

Bradda said...

Sign me up if Dr. Monkey is flinging poo!

I am nervous about this coming out before the election. Something tells me that this film will only engender sympathy for W.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Great idea.

dguzman said...

Vik--I think it might engender sympathy for W, but only in those who already have some modicum of sympathy or liking for him already. No one who knows the truth about the shit job he's done with this country could EVER been convinced that he's even human, much less a sympathetic human. We all know he's nothing more than a party-boy fuckup.

Lib--I too think the movie would make me ill, unless there were a lot of hecklers like all of us. Otherwise, I don't know if I could stomach it.

enc said...

Oh, the humanity.

karenzipdrive said...

Sigh...I see slappy is off his meds again...

Anyhoo, I plan to round up all the nelly queens I know and go see the movie with them. I want screeching, yelling and cursing in the audience!
And there's this great theater here that sells beer and wine.
Nothing like drunk queens* when it comes to talking back to the screen.
*Well, that is if you don't count black chicks. They're the masters!
