Cedar Rapids, Exporting Raymond and Ping Pong Playa are a couple of goofy movies that have made me laugh of late.
One of my favorite scenes in Ping Pong Playa:
Bowling Kid (Shalin Patel): I read my book about the top spin you have to put on the ball in order for it have a higher probability...That's so me. I have to read "the book" at some point in the program.
Christopher 'C-Dub' Wang: Stop. Before you start talking about top spin, you have to actually hit the ball. (48:00)
Favorite line from Exporting Raymond:
He needs to relax more. (30:30)Someone in the documentary said that about Philip Rosenthal, the creator of Everybody Loves Raymond while Everybody Loves Kostya was being developed. You might have to see the unrelaxed look on Rosenthal's face to appreciate that one...
Seen any good movies lately? I'm sometimes stumped when I realize that my disc will arrive at the Netflix warehouse and number one will be bumped up and what's next in my queue is not necessarily the movie that I really want to watch. How is it possible to have over 100 items in one's queue and still have nothing to watch?
