Go Back To School Thursday Night at Schlafly Bottleworks with Rodney Dangerfield

“Bring us a pitcher of beer every seven minutes until somebody passes out. And then bring one every ten minutes.”

Back To School is screening at 7pm this Thursday, September 5th at Schlafly Bottleworks – 7260 Southwest Ave St Louis, Mo 63143. Doors open at 6:30pm. It’s a fundraiser for Helping Kids Together

Back To School (1986) features Rodney Dangerfield in lovably crass form as Thornton Melon, a motormouth millionaire who enrolls in college to watch over his downtrodden son. He has the money, he has the confidence, but mostly he has the best lines:

“What lovely girls. How would you like a life of luxury and deceit?”

“We were doomed from the start. I’m an Earth sign. She’s a Water sign. Together, we made mud.”

“With the shape I’m in you could donate my body to science fiction.”

“Poetry is your favorite subject? Maybe you can help me straighten out my Longfellow.

The Aristocrat Movie Review – Dances With Films

Title: The Aristocrat Director: Gregory Croteau Starring: Jeff Gill, Adam Soule, Megahn Perry, Gary Henoch, Paxton Whitehead An in-competition title at the ongoing 14th annual Dances With Films festival, ‘The Aristocrat’ tells the story of a traveling salesman who’s spending his final few weeks on the job breaking in his callow, cocksure replacement.
