Another 'right film, wrong clip' choice. Strange, 'cos there must be 17 really funny excerpts from Animal House that would beat most choices in this desperate cup so far. I mean, this isn't even funny at all - it's just a bit...from a film...
Second bit of Chappelle I've seen....I get him, I do, he's ok. It's funny enough to win this round, anyway.
A isn't really very comic, although would've been entertaining enough within the context of the movie. Belushi would've been better. At last some stand up I can enjoy. This was much better than the earlier DC pick and told the story really well. And I actually laughed!
A's ok, given some of the context-less film clips we've had so far, there's a strange tension running through it that I like.
B though, again, I don't think the material's that good, but Chappelle has some presence and timing. He's one of those people I think you could watch talking on any subject (I almost wrote substance there, what a weird slip), and you'd always be hanging on his word. I'd like to see a full show.
Well, I've seen Animal House, smoked a lot of dope and even purchased Hey Paula when it cam out, but nothing in this resonated with me at all. And oh god I hate to be that guy, but a lot of what DC said I just couldn't catch. The subtitles were bizarre and surreal, too, ignored the swearing, and got most of what I could hear seriously wrong. I mean, pitifully so. Nevertheless, it was just about funnier than A
