“Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent.”
Gotta love Patrick Bateman.
Vince Vaughn has a new comedy called DELIVERY MAN out this Friday so for this week’s battle I decided to put him in the ring with one of his long-time buddies, Jon Favreau.
As big a fan I am of this guy, I soon began skipping several of his flicks because the trailers looked brutal (FRED CLAUS, THE BREAK-UP, COUPLES RETREAT, etc.). This trend has continued as I haven’t really seen any of his movies this decade. That will all change with the release of ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES this December. I’ll always be a Vince Vaughn fan because he is such a natural actor, whether he is being funny or serious but he needs more consistency in his career because there seems to be more turkeys in his filmography than there are quality films.
Trent: "I don't want you to be the guy in the PG-13 movie everyone's really hoping makes it happen. I want you to be like the guy in the rated R movie, you know, the guy you're not sure whether or not you like yet. You're not sure where he's coming from. Okay? You're a bad man. You're a bad man, Mikey. You're a bad man, bad man."
Trent: "You're a big winner. I'm gonna ask you a simple question and I want you to listen to me: who's the big winner here tonight at the casino? Huh? Mikey, that's who. Mikey's the big winner. Mikey wins."
Trent: "All right, all right I'll ask her. Miss, miss! Do you know where the high school girls hang out around here? What? What? That's right, I'm the asshole! I'm the asshole!"
Trent:"They're gonna give daddy the Rain Man suite, you dig that?"
Trent: "No, baby, you're money."
Mike: "What the fuck are you carrying a gun for? What, in case somebody steps to you, Snoop Dogg?"
Mike: "Trent, the beautiful babies don't work the midnight to six shift on a Wednesday. This is like the skank shift."
Mike: "How about if I wait six weeks to call. I could tell her I found her number while I was cleaning out my wallet, I can't remember where we met. I'll ask her what she looks like and then I'll ask her if we fucked. How about that? Would that be money?"
Mike: [Mike pays the delivery guy and then tosses the bags of food at Trent and Sue] "Eat, eat, you fucking jackals!"
Mike: "The whole Judy Garland thing kinda turned me on. Does that make me some kind of fag?"
Fast forward eight years to the 2011 San Diego Comic Con where Jon boy surprised everyone at the JoBlo.com party by spinning records as the guest DJ (Favreau discusses it here). I wasn’t there but I heard he didn’t play any Foreigner or Toto which kind of disappoints me. Still, these two incidents are more than enough to give Favreau the win in the "other" category.
