Because all art is derivative.
These shots are very nineties-heavy. Dead giveaways include:
- Plaid. Lots of it.
- Jeans pulled up to the armpits.
- Floppy haircuts on the men and boys.
- It was the only decade in which Ricki Lake, David Arquette, Skeet Ulrich, and Cuba Gooding Jr. were allowed to make movies. Well, movies that weren't direct-to-DVD.
- Oops, forgot that Ricki Lake was in Hairspray in 1988 (the ONLY worthwhile movie she's done.) Seriously, she should have stuck to John Waters films. I actually paid to see that abominable "Mrs. Winterbourne" with some girlfriends when it was in theaters. I'm still pissed about that one.
- I'm also still pissed about spending 9 bucks to see Eyes Wide
ShitShut in 1999. I also hated the stupid film critics who bent over backwards to praise that nut-filled turd of a movie. The worst offender was a reviewer in NUVO who wrote, "If you're the kind of person who loved Runaway Bride, you'll hate Eyes Wide Shut." Oh yeah, what if I hated both films, asshole? Do you not realize that there are more than two types of movies?
- Sorry, I didn't mean for this to be a rant on wasted money and dumb film critics.
- Back to the above clips, I totally didn't get that last one, the mom and kids shouting "CHIHUAHUAS!" I'm a cat person though. Maybe I'm not meant to get it.
- Say what you will, the best part was Rob Lowe emoting at 1:34. He emotes hard. Go Rob go!

Back with a new post soon. I promise to make it 100% all natural, original material.
