|Miss M is away on business, it's guy flick night. Help me out here.
I'm thinking "The Dirty Dozen" an all time classic. Of course Elefantino brought up "Airplane" last week-could be a contender. Anything with John Wayne in it works.
What should I rent, suggestions anyone?

|Enemy at the Gates or She Wore a Yellow Ribbon||McAndrus|

|For a recent movie, Enemy at the Gates is one of the better guy flicks.
If you a Wayne fan I'd go with She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.
|War flicks work. nm||MB1|

|deniro is great. a lot of car chases and shooting, and the end is a bit ambiguous, leading you to let your imagination run!|

|my wife does two multi-week horse shows per year so I have a biannual Lonely Guy Film Festival. I tend to go for violence and philospohy, that arcane combo that she won't tolerate.
The Professional: Ascetic hit man Jean Reno develops a heart and saves a lonely orphan while killing about 1000 people in a just cause. Gary Oldman is the bad guy.
Romeo is Bleeding: Gary Oldman as a bad cop (is there a thread here?) plays police department off of the Russian (as in Lena Olin) mob off of the Mafia. He doesn't win.
Ghost Dog: Forest Whitaker as a modern day Samurai hit man trying to remain noble in an unforgiving world.
Killing Zoe: Eric Stoltz as a safecracker in a Paris job gone bad, real bad.
If you're really lonely try The Hunger, campy horror with David Bowie and a scene with Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve that will make you forget your bike. A bit dated but not bad to watch on fast forward.

|Heat, Caddyshack, Full Metal Jacket, Platoon, Uncle Buck. Then there are the Hot Tight @sses type of movies.....|

|Full Metal Jacket, anyone who was in the Marine Corps can identify with the first half of the movie. The actor playing the head D.I. was a retired marine who was a D.I. in The Crotch ("The Crotch" is what grunts referred to as Marine Corps life)...|

sophisticated, wife out of town, drinking burboun: any Bond movie without Roger Moore.
gritty, wife out of town, sit around in the same sweats for two days (yuck!): any Clint Eastwood "Spaghetti Western"
wife out of town, ride all day and crash all night drinking beers: science fiction. you name it. nothing low-budget.
wife out of town, wife in town, jeepers, do i need a reason?: monty python

|To be a good "Guy Flick" most everybody has to die||MB1|
Feb 27, 2002 2:33 PM
|or end up alone.
And a good guy flick can't have "DUDE" in its title!
|most all their brain cells did die!||peloton|
Feb 27, 2002 4:03 PM
|The beginning of 'Dude' when they were waking up and trying to remember what happened reminded me of a couple places that I lived/hung out at as an undergrad. I could make another movie now- Dude, when did I get so lame?! Oh well... my liver feels better.
How about 'Platoon' for a good guy flick?

|I was going to say that, I have it on dvd. Also try Pulp Fiction.|
Feb 28, 2002 12:34 PM
|If you like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, rent this early Stanley Kubrick film from 1956. It's an outstanding film that was a major influence on Tarantino.|
|Sounds good, thanks...nm||4bykn|

|Blazing saddles, Young Frankenstein. Or Waynes World (hey, it has Tia Carerre in it, need I say more?!)Yes I know it isn't a Mel Brooks movie, but it's a classic.|

|Cool Hand Luke.
WOW what a great guy flick.
Chain gang, the car wash scene, eggs, George Kennedy was great, tasteful music and even though chicks dig him Paul sure can make a great guy flick!
"What we have here is a failure to communicate."
|Great Movie.||Len J|

|The Usual Suspects - "Did you put that together yourself, Einstein?"
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - "Oy! Get your fingers out of my soup."
Snatch - "Protection from what? Zee Germans?"
The Big Lebowski - "You're entering a world of pain."
O' Brother, Where Art Thou - "Damn, we're in a tight spot!"
The Wild Bunch - William Holden is brilliant.
Spinal Tap - "It goes to eleven."
Airplane - "Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?"
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - Steve Martin's monkey-boy bit is priceless.
