I’m 15 minutes into this movie and I absolutely have to share. Watch and post the cringe inducing moments on the comments.
It came out in 1996. Christina Applegate is in it. I don’t remember 1996 being this ridiculously cheesy. What I gather so far is that an aspiring musician loses his hands and somehow gets them replaced with robo future hands and plays techno at rave parties or something.
Moments so far, chronologically….
-the newspaper prop stinks!
-the dialog between father and son is incredible
-why is his girlfriend in bed in the afternoon? Is she a hooker?
-what is this weird forced dialog about protection?
-why doesn’t she wake him up if she knows he has a band gig?
-why is the action sequence/altercation with the drunks SO SLOW. he had ages to see that construction equipment coming. Why didn’t he run out of the car?
-fake arm stumps raised in bed are fantastic
-forced dialog between father and girlfriend outside house
-zoom in on jimmy hendrix hands then pan down to him moping
-why is that dartboard above his bed? where does he stand to throw it? Is it just there to remind him he’ll never throw darts again?
-OMG – love scene with fake hands at 16:57. Why doesn’t he get down to some fisty business?
-HE ASKS HER IF SHE WANTS TO BE STUMP F*CKED! THIS IS AMAZING
-Hobos always sleep in the middle of Times Square
-Why is he breaking into a warehouse to sleep in a cardboard box? Cardboard box sleeping is for OUTSIDE you dolt!
-They’ve set up for a rave and didn’t notice the hobo?
-A swichblade? What is this? 1976?
-Delicate touching of the fake hand and then “you can stay the night.” So romantic!
-37:00 he’s gonna save the day! i can feel it! Fire and knives don’t hurt him!
-50:39 – incredible super computer guy lingo!
-51:27 – amazing description of techno. (thanks boing boing)
