Why? Because. That’s why.
1. “Shoot him!”
Why it’s great: Because when I bring the subject up at dinner parties, surprisingly few people know that it’s based on this completely fucking outrageous piece of acting from Ice-T in New Jack City.
2. Gratuitous beaver shot
Why it’s great: Because look at Jon Lovitz’ (and everyones’) clothes.
3. “Wilderness Girls!”
Why it’s great: Because just listen to the way Tim Curry says the word “quota”.
4. Leary, Shatner and the fish
Why it’s great: Because of what William Shatner does at the fish tank.
5. Charlie Sheen’s ridiculous cameo
Why it’s great: Because of the line “Got anything larger?”. And look at Emilio Estevez’ hair.
6. “The right! I meant stay to the right!”
Why it’s great: Because the editing is world class.
In conclusion: Absolutely one of the most underrated comedies of the 1990s, in my humble yet almost certainly correct opinion. Also brilliant for the way in which Emilio Estevez unhinged performance pretty much predicted how Mel Gibson would end up in real life. So, so good. They don’t make them like this anymore.
