On Monday night, Chris and I finally got to do something we wanted to do: we saw one of our favorite comics, Doug Benson, at a Master Pancake showing at the Alamo Drafthouse. Master Pancake is basically a Mystery Science Theater-esque group of guys who make fun of shitty movies. Last night was a “choose your own pancake” where people brought movies to watch. Doug Benson wanted a St. Patrick’s Day theme, meaning it could really include anything at all Irish or involving drinking. Someone brought The Boy Who Drank Too Much.
This is a made-for-TV movie from 1980 starring Scott Baio as a high school kid who plays hockey and drinks. It’s crazy. There’s not much to say about it from our end because we weren’t really watching the movie. But it’s goofy enough to be worth watching, especially if you take the Doug Benson route and insert a lot of dick jokes and/or come up with a drinking game for it.
Since we didn’t really watch this, Chris really doesn’t have anything else to add, so we’re just going to leave it at that. Also, we’ve taken a bit of a movie break this week – we’re in the middle of both Twin Peaks and True Detective. We’ll be back to movies extremely soon!
