This week the theme of Movie Night was "Really Bad Movies". I had planned to show Hercules in New York, the first film starring Arnold Schwartzeneger, and Xanadu, a musical starring Olivia Newton John. (Xanadu also has a big element of Greek myth, so it was really a double theme!) However, Herc proved to be as much as we could handle, so we watched Danny Deckchair second.

What can i say? Everything in Hercules in New York is pretty terrible. Yet i can't badmouth it, because it made me laugh harder than anything has in a long time. The scene where Arnold wrestles a guy in a cheap bear suit is the most trancendently goofy thing you'll ever see. I wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good Bad Movie now and then.
