In the garage, with a shotgun, a rubber chicken, my cat, a RealDoll named Tsuki, a 6oz swordfish steak, a Captain Caveman decoder ring, a picture of the 1973 Dodgers, Zoomie's foot fetish, the occasional stripper to beat me up, 5 nicotine patches, a vial of Family Guy Anti Bacterial Soap, the occasional call from Suze, the occasional smoo, Avast AntiVirus, Mosh's Magical Marsupials, a bottle of Crisco, Spybot - Search & Destroy, the dude who pooped in the tuba, a PitBull named "Diesel", a limited edition 'Tickle Me Elmo', a Darth Vader mask, Terry Fader's turtle puppet, a bag of Ol'Roy dog food, a $5 gift certificate to "Biz-E-G's 'Lapdances and Laundry'", Lisa Lisa from the Cult Jam, the fabled "TSi CockRing Set", the new TSi "Paddle Me Palin" doll, a 250cc syringe full of empscum, a "Hello Kitty" tongue piercing kit, a pirated copy of WinRAR, a roasted turkey leg, my "Police Squad" box set, and K_o_C's non-used tube of Anal Eaze, I feel safe ...
Sounds like the time I saw Requiem for a Dream. I had heard it hyped as the best stoner film ever. All about drugs and extremely good. I made plans to see it with two of my biggest smoking chums and one of their girlfriends, but I had to work beforehand. I ran back to the apartment to change into normal clothes and partake in a bit of the mood enhancer I could smell thickly, but apparently the fuckers had started without me and all that was left were two roaches one fresh, one from a few nights earlier. I was a little bummed that I was still essentially sober, but man was I glad when the film started to turn into the WORST allegedly "stoner film" I've ever seen. The girlfriend left in tears, and I think us guys were all holding them back.
I never even heard of The Bucket List until this thread. I guess this is why:
wrote ... Criticism The film received mixed reviews from critics. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 41 percent of reviews were positive, based on 147 reviews. It also has a 24 percent rating from their top critics. Metacritic reported the film had an average score of 40 out of 100, based on 33 reviews. Roger Ebert, who has thyroid cancer, spoke for himself when he criticised the film's portrayal of cancer sufferers, writing in his review that The Bucket List "â€¦thinks dying of cancer is a laff riot followed by a dime-store epiphany."
The Times of London ranked The Bucket List at No. 17 on its 100 Worst Films of 2008 list.
Man, your people must have some incredibly shitty taste in movies Goady.
Requiem for a Dream always sounded depressing so I never bothered. And I actually picked up The Bucket List on bootleg just cuz I like both Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, but that same day my boss' daughter, a really good friend of mine and my sister's best friend (almost a sister to us, really) fuckin' OD'd. I haven't felt much like watching it since then.

Requiem for a Dream was an odd refernce but I actually also have conflicting views of that film. It was a great movie, but in an extremely disturbing way. My lust for Jennifer Connelly aside, the fact that she sold herself for dope.. aaaarrrggg...
Actually I think a better reference is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, also marketed as a comedy, but I found it to be one of the most depressing films I have ever seen.
And as for critics and refernces - I trust no one's opinion but my own. Hell My favorite Movie is Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

The WORST movie of 2008 ... THE HAPPENING, hands down ...
Agreed. But I liked Bucket List. Only because I'm closer to having one than all of you...
Happening not the the worst - although a wee bit disapointing.
You Don't know my soon to be ex-wife Zoomie... The only reason she would hit me with the but of a rifle is because she doesn't have any shells left... and trust me - I made my my list just in case

I liked the bucket list. I thought it was one of those movies that made you laugh, cry and get all pissed off in one film. I wouldn't call it a comedy, but I wouldn't call it a drama or a tragedy either.
