We’ve all been there. You’re sitting at a friend’s dinner party drinking post-meal coffees and the discussion turns to films. Everybody is out to impress, so obviously the standard French and Japanese classics are churned out, along with ‘Schindler’s List’, ‘Raging Bull’ and that one about a young Che Guevara, yet you are just itching to shout out your favourite film of all time, but fear the ensuing ridicule at the mere mentioning of such a lowbrow film as ‘Anchorman’.
Well, here’s what to do. See which guest is most likely to be a kindred spirit in your adoration for one of the stupidest, funniest quotable film of all time and subtly slide your iPhone across the table, with a nod and a wink to test the water. They will undoubtedly press one of the many ‘quote buttons’ and the sound of Brian Fantana waxing lyrical about his ‘Sex Panther’ aftershave, “60% of the time, it works every time,” will slice through the pretentious waffle like a knife through cheese.
For those of you who haven’t seen ‘Anchorman’, this is a veritable ‘best of’, with a selection of the funniest quotes from the film; if it tickles you in away, then I suggest renting the movie so you can see what all the fuss is about. This App won’t change your life, but it will make future social gatherings a lot funnier, as you entertain and annoy your friends by giggling at the ‘Anchorman’ back catalogue; pretty soon you won’t even need to go to dinner parties, you can just stay in and click away with your new set of virtual friends!
For the price of a packet of crisps, you can have Brick Tamland invite you to a pants party, time and time again. Now that’s good value for money.
