How not to re-enact your favourite movie Two girls take their love of Thelma and Louise too far. Laws aside, what scene from a movie would you live out if you had a choice?

I would be happy re-enacting Debbie Does Dallas, my playing all the gentlemens' roles.

The drill scene from Pi.

Heh.

Any of Harold's suicides, but especially the explosion.

"They are not going to find Brad Pitt down this end of the world," Sen. Const. Murphy said. brilliant!

That's, uh, pretty funny :)

Well, that should probably come as a relief to them, really.

desperate flight from the law across the south west of the United States after a tragic shooting at a bar. [side note]: the bar scene was filmed at the Silver Bullet in Lakewood, Ca iirc near the corner of Downey & South Street.

This movie would be fun re-enacting Brewster's Millions, which might be why it was re-made 4 times too.

Yarloop Police pulled the women over at Myalup.
It really is a whole nother country.

I've always wanted to interrogate someone with a plate of french fries (sorry, chips) the way Kevin Klien did to Michael Palen in A Fish Called Wanda.

Con Air flying down the strip in Vegas. A better landing, but causing money to rain down throughout the street would be pretty cool.
Also, taking over a Russian sub in The Hunt for Red October would be cool too.

Whacked out of my head on white-roomed, star field-ed, weird metaphorical alien sensory overload. A la "2001, a space odyssey."
My God. It's full of stars.

thomcatspike, nope -- the Silver Bullet is in North Long Beach, right along the Lakewood/Long Beach/Downey lines. Not that I grew up there or anythin'.

As for me, I'd be more than happy to be Corky in Bound. Wooo, boy...

I'm with Katemonkey. I'd be Jennifer Tilly's character at the very end of the movie though.

The car chase scene in "The Blues Brothers."

Exactly what part of Blues Brothers isn't "the car chase scene"?

And I was just trying to decide on a car chase scene.

The singing and dancing scene didn't have a lot of car chase in it.

I agree with Zonker. Groundhog Day would be great. Only, I'd skip doing the bits about suicide and get right to learning how to make ice sculptures and play the piano.

The car chase from Bullitt.

Or the motorcycle jump in The Great Escape.

Or the part in Star Wars when Mace Windu kicks Anakin Skywalker's whining little ass back to Tatooine.

...I'm sorry. I thought fan films could be included.

Kewl!

Yarloop and Myalup aren't far from where I live. In fact, I drove thru the two towns last fortnight.

First ever link I've read on MeFi that pertains to the backwater that is South West Oz.


Erm... my movie scene: The door gunner from Full Metal Jacket, only this time set in suburbia. "Come and get some!!! Ha ha!"

(Not really but, that would be too cruel.)
