Miracle on Ice Round 1: #6 v #27 Fight!

April 22, 2008

In this corner, weighing in at 175 lean, sexy pounds, the man who’s face launched a thousand douches, Gordon Gekko! Mr. Gekko, who certainly needs no introduction (at least if you’re a day trader, a wannabe day trader, a guy who’s seen Glengarry Glen Ross, a guy who thinks Alec Baldwin is the tits, or a guy that calls other guys-not-their-barber “champ,” “chief,” or “boss”), is the representative of one half of our first match:

#6 – Wall Street

making guys want to punch other guys for decades


#27 – Lethal Weapon!

What really sets this movie apart from the other buddy-cop movies of the decade like Beverly Hills Cop is the fact that the biggest star of the film has no speaking roles. That’s right. It’s Mel Gibson’s mullet. Definitely rivals Patrick Swayze’s Roadhouse mullet, and that is no mean feat. It also stars Danny Glover, who was like a billion years old in the first one, yet managed to stay alive for 3 sequels. The challenge for Lethal Weapon will be avoiding seepage from its sequels. Joe Pesci was bad enough, but Joe Pesci and Chris Rock? Puh-lease.

Hey Moe!

So who ya got?
