I've seen it and it's still awesome. And, while the decision to use a bazooka is actually adequately explained in the scene, the decision to use it again to destroy a sex doll isn't.

I think I can safely say that the preceding sentence has never before been written in the history of the English language.

This may be a dumb question, but why did he have the sex doll in the first place?
posted by originalname37 at 2:11 PM on March 12, 2009


I'd love to see the director explaining this to the actors..

OK first he skates by them upside down, mainly to show off that you can do that Skater, if that is your real name...Rowdy will just ad lib something about drugs...
then Skater will get in the other car and pass them with Blondie. Then he'll skate backwards hiding behind Blondie and shoot their tires out. Then: boom boom, bang bang, number one at the box office, OK?

Alright! Now who's putting down their drivers license for the deposit on this thing?

Can't say why he had it in the first place...probably the usual reasons that people purchase such objects. But in this scene, it was slyly employed as device to obscure his firearm.

So he obtained it for the usual means and used it for the usual means? I bet this was a boring film.

In Every Dream Home A Heartache
by Roxy Music (1973)

In every dream home a heartache
And every step I take
Takes me further from heaven...

Is there a heaven?
I`d like to think so

Standards of living
They´re rising daily
But home, oh sweet home
It's only a saying

From bell push to faucet
In smart town apartment
The cottage is pretty
The main house a palace
Penthouse perfection
But what goes on --
What to do there?
Better pray there

Open plan living
Bungalow, ranch-style
All of its comforts
They seem so essential

I bought you mail order
My plain wrapper baby
Your skin is like vinyl
The perfect companion
You float my new pool
De-luxe and de-lightful
Inflatable doll
My role is to serve you
Disposable darling

Can´t throw you away now
Immortal and life size
My breath is inside you
I´ll dress you up daily
And keep you till death sighs
Inflatable doll
Lover ungrateful
I blew up your body...

... but you blew my mind

He skated by on his hands first to establish that he was a leet trick skater. This was so that when he came by the second time, with the sex doll, it would not be remarked on. "Oh, of course he has a sex doll, that is part of the leet skater thang he does."

Of course, it didn't work out as planned. You'll notice that the jeep occupants said "watch out, he has a gun."

The review under zardoz's link:
First there was the Bicycle Thief, then Citizen Kane, Gone With the Wind, Doctor Zhivago, Ghandi, and now Hard Ticket to Hawaii. Breathtaking cinematography and cunning script writing make this a must-see for all who aspire to create "films" rather than movies. Dona Spier (grossly ignored by the academy) spews forth her lines with an enthusiasm unseen since the great Shakespearean actresses of the 18th century. Andy Sidaris is a shrewd judge of talent and is horribly underestimated, as his films are usually ignored at the Cannes and Aspen film festivals. I rate this a 10.

Yeah, I guess the curved blade probably wouldn't work. I could've sworn I saw James Woods use a tennis can lid to cut lines in some movie or another. But then all my knowledge of hard drugs come from movies. People who use cocaine like to wear coral-colored polo shirts and Ray-Bans, right?

You'd be surprised how little it takes to write such a sentence. For example, your previous previous sentence "I've seen it and it's still awesome" currently gets only one hit on Google, and it's to this very page. It's entirely possible that the sentence has been written somewhere not currently indexed by Google, but I think it still illustrates my point well. The same kind of comment probably exists in thousands of different forms in the Google database, but yours is the only one that is phrased in that particular way. Pretty astonishing, really.

Doll? That was supposed to be the female character! Skate guy had taken her hostage, then used her as a shield against jeep guy (her fiance). When jeep guy sees what he did, and realizes his betrothed will fall to certain doom, he spares her the suffering and dispatches her with the bazooka. The trauma causes him to go into a shock, and he reacts by wanting to eat his problems away.

Sad thing. I cried.
