Throwback Thursday Reviews

Another Thursday meme of mine so that I can post some Old Reviews.

Girl Scout Sleepover Double Feature Movies

I’m not sure what year at was exactly, sometime during the late 1980s I think. My sister and was apart of the Girl Scouts in elementary school and our group adult leader was a little strange. We had our first sleepover at that time too. The adult let her kid pick out one of the movies, A Nightmare in Elm Street.  The other movie was not much better of a pick for 8 year olds and older (I was the older). The leader picked The Three Amigos (my favorite quotes and some YouTube video favorites bellow because I rewatched this today).

I suppose after watching a horror movie, the comedy was much needed, well mostly for me. While everyone was watching A Nightmare on Elm Street, I was hiding behind the couches because I was so scared. That movie gave me nightmares for weeks after this. This scene still gives me the creeps:

Needless to say that this was our last sleepover or any event with that adult (still can’t recall the family’s name). They remained our friends for a few years up until high school when attitudes change and teen angst is #1 priority.

Because it’s Cinco de Mayo today, I’m going to be rewatching The Three Amigos. Here’s some of my favorite quotes and scenes:

¡Three Amigos! (1986)

¡Three Amigos!

PG / 1h 44min / Comedy, Western
Starring: Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Martin Short

IMDb Synopsis: Three actors accept an invitation to a Mexican village to perform their onscreen bandit fighter roles, unaware that it is the real thing.


Lucky Day: Reading telegram: “Three Amigos, Hollywood, California. You are very great. 100,000 pesos. Come to Santa Poco put on show, stop. The In-famous El Guapo.”
Dusty Bottoms: What does that mean, in-famous?
Ned Nederlander: Oh, Dusty. In-famous is when you’re MORE than famous. This man El Guapo, he’s not just famous, he’s IN-famous.
Lucky Day: 100,000 pesos to perform with this El Guapo, who’s probably the biggest actor to come out of Mexico!
Dusty Bottoms: Wow, in-famous? In-famous?

Bartender: “We don’t have beer. Just tequila.”
Ned Nederlander: “What’s tequila?”
Bartender: “Uh, it’s like beer.”

Dusty Bottoms: Time for plan B. Plan A was to break into El Guapo’s fortress.
Carmen: And that you have done, now what?
Dusty Bottoms: Well we really dont have a plan B. We didn’t expect for the first plan to work. Sometimes you can overplan these things.

And the best part of the movie I thought:

Lucky Day: I’m Lucky Day!
Ned Nederlander: I’m Ned Nederlander!
Dusty Bottoms: And I’m Dusty Bottoms! And together we are…
Lucky Day, Ned Nederlander, Dusty Bottoms: The Three Amigos!
[each does the Amigo salute]

And because these Amigos are just a bunch of idjits!

Lucky: [Lucky returning to group, now realizing that el Guapo and his gang, are real outlaws] It’s real.
Dusty: What?
Lucky: This is real.
Ned: You mean…
Lucky: Yes, they are going… to kill us.
[Amigos begin sobbing pathetically]
Ned: [Sobbing] What am I doing in Mexico.
Lucky: [Sobbing] I’ve been shot already.
Ned: [Sobbing] I know.
Dusty: [Sobbing] What are we gonna do?
Ned: [Sobbing] We’re not gonna get PAID, that’s for sure.

And so happy Cinco De Mayo everyone. Cheers.

And because this all started because of a giff I saw thanks to Den of Geek US on Facebook. Here’s my  tequila favorite…

Tequila Jose Quervo

What’s yours? And have you seen either of these films? Which is your favorite?

  1. I listened to a podcast where they talked about Wes Craven and Nightmare on Elm Street. Wes was bullied as a kid, and the name of the kid who bullied him… Freddie Krueger.
