So, I decided to sit back and watch a DVD last night and went with one of my all time favorites, Falling Down!
If you have not seen this movie, I highly recommend it! It is a must watch! I guarantee you’ll love it. There are so many classic scenes in this movie. This is Michael Douglas at his acting best!
The film is basically about a guy, Bill Foster, who’s divorced and recently laid off from his job who finally snaps while caught in a traffic jam. He abandons his car and starts his journey to his ex-wife’s house and his descent into crazy! He’s decided to start a war on the everyday world and just give it a big old middle finger.
He first flips out on a Korean store owner for trying to charge him 85 cents for a can of Coke. When the store owner pulls a bat on him, he takes the bat away, destroys the merchandise he deems too expensive, pays what he thinks is fair for the soda and leaves.
Afterwards, our protagonist comes across some gangsters. He’s apparently in their territory. This scene is just too funny to describe. Just see for yourself.
And in one of the all time classic scenes, this guy goes nuts on a “Whammy Burger” for not selling him breakfast at 11:33 because they stop selling breakfast at 11:30. We can all relate to this with McDonald’s and their breakfast cut off time, ugh.
Even though this guy is a complete nut job, you can’t help rooting for him. He’s extreme about every situation, but how many of us haven’t felt like going off like that sometimes. I can’t say it enough…everyone has to watch this film!
Well, it’s finally Friday!!!! I’m counting down the minutes until I get out of work and start my weekend! Hope everyone has a great weekend. And if you’re looking for something to do, I don’t know, how about renting this movie! 🙂
