I wish I seen that sooner so I didnt have to sit through t it . Hey Its a great film but it drags on a bit. Plus I have the colorized version.

Worth it for the bonus scenes alone.

"I wish I was never born." "OK!"

Beautiful.

The Sam Wainwright impression was priceless.

I think they could've cut a coupla seconds to flesh out the bridge scene... We hardly got an impression of Clarence.

Only missing:

'Now, you listen to me! I don't want any plastics, and I don't want any ground floors, and I don't want to get married — ever — to anyone! You understand that? I want to do what I want to do!'

and:

'He's making violent love to me, Mother!'

Plus that bit when Mary's hiding in the hydrangea. That's priceless. I love that movie. Hee-Haw!

If only Hollywood used bunnies to begin with.

Think of the time that would be saved ....

Love the movie and now with bunnies? The best of both worlds!

I think the only one of these bunny things that really worked was "The Exorcist"...

Yeah, I've got to admit that was classic bunny entertainment. Which brings me to this, were there any bunnies in "The Exorcist"?
posted by kartooner at 8:11 AM on December 15, 2004


The original crucifix scene in the Exorcist, where the possessed she-monster defiles herself. The original script had a bunny rabbit.

Friedkin was a stickler for realism, so after several takes they had to stop and switch to something metallic. People were starting to puke. Maybe it's in the DVD special edition?

These are all getting a little same-ish now.

Fantastic. Alas, this leaves out my favourite Christmas scene, when Jimmy Stewart goes apeshit and yells at the kids, ending with yelling at Zuzu about her horrible piano playing. Zuzu turns to the camera, tears in her eyes, and wails "Oh Daddy". It's then we know that he's broken. Such despair.

gsb, thanks for the trivia tidbit. I would have never known.

I think as far as the same-ish feeling, yeah, I think so as well. I mean you can only do so much with Chipmunk-sounding bunnies and 30 seconds.

When my mother saw the scene where Jimmy Stewart yells at the kids and complains about having to have the damn kids around all the time, she laughed and laughed.

Raising eight kids can do that to you.

Oh, Hot Dog

I have no idea why, but these just never get old.

Earlier today I was gawping at the Fox News Channel when they showed a 30 second re-enactment of IaWL starring Steve Doocy. I wish I could link it here for contrast.

Capra's movie is good-natured and a long-term favourite. But this imaginative, creative version has too much scowling. Perhaps I am missing out on who the bunnies are.

Wonderful! I love the whole movies with bunnies in 30 seconds genre, but never am aware of new ones until someone posts a link.

Thanks.

Great stuff. She has a good eye for capturing the fashions and styles in each movie.
posted by Down10 at 11:43 AM on December 15, 2004


this one didn't amuse me as much as the other reenactments, but the bonus "dance by the light of the moon" scene makes up for it.

Not that I could tell...

I hate the movie, but love the bunnies!

I was always more a fan of "Escape from It's a Wonderful Life," as dubbed by The Upright Citizens Brigade
posted by The White Hat at 1:37 PM on December 15, 2004


It's my favorite movie, but there's a lot of funny moments with Bad George. Like just before he yells at the kids, when he gets on the phone and tells the teacher's husband "Oh, this is Mister Welch, is it? I'll tell you what I really think of your wife!"

Also on that site and funny: Amy's Diary, from 3rd grade.

Shit. You guys suck. It made me cry. Just like the real movie. But in 30 seconds. I'm cryin'. You suck. That was fantastic. *sob*.

I love the swirley eyes in the scene where he almost wrings Uncle Billy's neck.

I have not watched any of the bunny re-enactments, and I don't intend to start now, by gum.

That explains a lot about you, stavros. It's all clear now.

*panics, watches the bunny stuff in fear that he's getting old amd unhip or something*
posted by stavrosthewonderchicken at 5:27 AM on December 17, 2004


I've reconsidered, and I'd rather be old and cranky than young and hip. So fuck the bunnies.
posted by stavrosthewonderchicken at 9:57 PM on December 18, 2004


Love the bunnies. But the "Buffalo Girl" scene so should have been squeezed in. It's the most important scene in the movie.
