Star Rating:  5/5 stars

Trivia: Before Danny proposes, Wheeler tells him that they have to be at Blue Valley Middle School. Blue Valley is the name of the actual middle school that Paul Rudd attended in Overland Park, Kansas.

I can’t believe that I haven’t watched this movie in years.  OMG!  I just love Paul Rudd.  I will watch him in anything.  And I do mean anything.  Every line he speaks is sarcastic, whether or not he means it.  It’s just a beautiful thing!  And all the minor side characters are just a treat.  It makes for a great awkward moment.

PS. The creepiest scene in any movie = dinner at Chipmunk Charlie’s

Best Bits: 

[from trailer]
Ronnie Shields: Suck it, “Reindeer Games”!
Danny: I’m not Ben Affleck.
Ronnie Shields: You white, then you Ben Affleck.
Wheeler: You *are* white.
Danny: That’s true, I am white.

Gayle Sweeny: Watch your language, Ronnie.
Ronnie Shields: My language is English and this mother fucker tried to grab my junk.

Gayle Sweeny: You know what I used to have for breakfast? Cocaine. Know what I had for lunch? Cocaine.
Wheeler: What did you have for dinner?
Danny: Was it cocaine?

Gayle Sweeny: [Appropriately hugging Martin] *This* is a perfectly acceptable hug between a little and a big.
[Hugging him from behind]
Gayle Sweeny: *This* is not.
Wheeler: Well, obviously we’re not supposed to buttfuck these kids.

Gayle Sweeny: Well, well, well. If it isn’t Mr. Bullshit and Dr. I’m-full-of-shit?
Wheeler: In what way are we full of shit?
Danny: Which one of us has the Ph.D?

Danny: No, I like to rock n’ roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands… I can only rock from like 1-3.

Gayle Sweeny: I know why you are here, so don’t BS a BSer, Ok? Your “Presence” here, court ordered.
Danny: Why did you put presence in quotes? Are you implying that we aren’t here?
