HEY! Deuce Bigalow is funny!
The corpses all hang headless and limp bodies with no surprises and the blood drains down like devil's rain we'll bathe tonight I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls Demon I am and face I peel to see your skin turned inside out, 'cause gotta have you on my wall gotta have you on my wall, 'cause I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls collect the heads of little girls and put 'em on my wall hack the heads off little girls and put 'em on my wall I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls


Compared to "The Haunting", "Deuce Bigalow" is the original director's cut of "The Magnificent Ambersons".

- Frank Capra


Well, my original list from that year went like this (I've got all these lists archived on my website, making it easy to call them up at will)..

1. Magnolia

2. Eyes Wide Shut

3. American Beauty

4. The War Zone

5. The Insider

6. The Iron Giant

7. Boys Don't Cry

8. Run Lola Run

9. Mansfield Park

10. TIE: Bringing Out The Dead and The Straight Story

But in retrospect, I think I'd add Titus (which I didn't see until well into 2000), Three Kings, The Limey, and hell, Fight Club and The Matrix deserve a spot too. But I wouldn't take any of the other movies off. I'd just have a lot of ties.


1.  Magnolia
2.  American Beauty
3.  Fight Club
4.  The Limey
5.  The Matrix
6.  American Movie
7.  Being John Malcovich

10.  The Sixth Sense

The Talented Mr Ripley
Man on the Moon

*Editors Note:  Just saw The Limey, redid the list*
"Talking shit about a pretty sunset
Blanketing opinions that i'll probably regret soon"

Eyes Wide Shut
Being John Malkovich
The Straight Story
The Ninth Gate
Fight CLub
The Talented Mr. Ripley
