    I just completed my annual trip with my brother, and brother in law and nephews, guys only trip. Somewhere along the line I started doing lines from movies. I guess I’m getting old! To my dismay none of my nephews recognized any of the impressions I was doing. They didn’t recognize anything from: “Caddyshack” , “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, “Animal House”, “On the Waterfront” the “Godfather”, etc….

    The youngest is 18 through their early 20s’

    I told them I couldn’t relate to them anymore, so they said to make a list of movies they need to watch, so they could relate next time we see each other.

    In no particular order

    “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”

    “Caddyshack”

    “On the Waterfront”

    “Goodfellas”

    “To Hell and Back” - these clowns never heard of Audie Murphy. Great government schooling they are getting.

    “Sergeant York” - no idea who he is.

    “Midway” - where is that?

    “The Pride of the Yankees”

    I could add a dozen more, but they want a short list. Anything I should add?

    Anything by Mel Brooks or Monty Python. Definitely Godfather (no need to bother with II and III). John Wayne's McClintock, True Grit, Big Jake, Hellfighters, and Hatari.

    One of the greatest movies ever is "Erf and Pa Do". May be hard to find but well worth the search.

    BrowningGal,

    The funniest part of Hatari is when "Pockets" (Red Buttons) is trying to milk the male goat! That has to be one of the funniest parts in a movie that I've ever seen.

    I know all these movies, well except one, most of which are quite good. Bisi, I would just stick with the movies YOU really like. Booger, "Erf and Pa Do"?? When did that come out?

    hi I have always liked "HOMBRE" with Paul Newman great western quote 'WHAT IS HIS NAME" or something like that. Could be similar to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid " WHO ARE THOSE GUYS?". Fun stuff thanks ridg

    Oh Yeh, Porky's is a must as well as Smokey and the Bandit. I don't think there was a male child in my HS who didn't want their Mom and Dad to rush out and get them a Trans-am. I'd talk more but got to go 12-200. Catch you on the flip side. Break-em all. Jeff

    For all the hockey fans, Slapshot is a definite must see. Boiler Room is a really good one, has Vin Diesel before he became a big shot movie star.
