"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

When it comes to cult movies, for me, this one is right up there in the alley among my top ten or even five favorite ones: Beautiful Girls, directed by the tragically gone Ted Demme (1963-2002) from 1996.
My "date movie" of choice (okay Annie Hall and Casablanca would complete the trilogy). I could even have a date as an excuse to watch this one!
It has so many good scenes: the Winnie the Pooh one with the underrated Timothy Hutton and the then just a kid Natalie Portman, the Supermodels speech by the always hateable Michael Rapaport, the "karaoke scene" with Uma Thurman pouring shots to the guys about to deliver Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline and so many many more. So i gonna choose one for you, ladies and germs. The one with Rosie O'Donnell, Matt Dillon, Hutton in the grosery store. In english (with some not so acurate spanish subtitles). So, here it goes. Lights, camera, ACTION!!

Gina: I'm finished speaking to both of you okay? You're both fucking insane. You want to know what your problem is? MTV, Playboy, and Madison fucking Avenue. Yes. Let me explain something to you, ok? Girls with big tits have big asses. Girls with little tits have little asses. That's the way it goes. God doesn't fuck around; he's a fair guy. He gave the fatties big, beautiful tits and the skinnies little tiny niddlers. It's not my rule. If you don't like it, call him. Hey Mitch. Thank you.

Looking at a porn magazine]
Gina: Oh, guys, look what we have here. Look at this, your favorite. Oh, you like that?

Tommy: I could go along with that
Gina: Yeah, that's nice right? Well, it doesn't exist ok. Look at the hair. The hair is long, it's flowing, it's like a river. Well, it's a fucking weave ok? And the tits, please! I could hang my overcoat on them. Tits by design were invented to be suckled by babies. Yes, they're purely functional. These are silicon city. And look, my favorite, the shaved pubis. Pubic hair being too unruly and all. Very key. This is a mockery, this is a sham, this is bullshit. Implants, collagen, plastic, capped teeth, the fat sucked out, the hair extended, the nose fixed, the bush shaved... These are not real women, all right? They're beauty freaks. And they make all us normal women with our wrinkles, our puckered boobs, hi bob, and our cellulite feel somehow inadequate. Well I don't buy it, all right? But you fucking mooks, if you think that if there's a chance in hell that you'll end up with one of these women, you don't give us real women anything approaching a commitment. It's pathetic. I don't know what you think you're going to do. You're going to end up eighty-years old, drooling in some nursing home, then you're going to decide, it's time to settle down, get married, have kids? What, are you going to find a cheerleader? Charge it Mitch
Tommy: I think you're over simplifying.

Gina: Oh eat me. Look at Paul. With his models on the wall, his dog named Elle McPherson. He's insane. He's obsessed. You're all obsessed. If you had an once of self-esteem, of self-worth, of self-confidence, you would realize that as trite as it may sound, beauty is truly skin-deep. And you know what, if you ever did hook one of those girls, I guarantee you'd be sick of her
Tommy: Yeah, I suppose I'd get sick of her after about, what, twenty or thirty years?

Gina: Get over yourself. Thank you Mitch. Say hello to Gertrude.

Tommy: What?

Gina: No mater how perfect the nipple, how supple the thigh, unless there is some other shit going on in the relationship, besides the physical, it's going to get old, ok? And you guys, as a gender, have got to get a grip. Otherwise, the future of the human race is in jeopardy.

Willie Conway: What was that?

Tommy: I don't know, but a great ass.

Willie Conway: Nice tits. Come on let's go.

I love this video. But, you know the worst? The worst is that someone listen this girl talk like this, he'll think: "this girl talk like this cause she is jalouse".

A big hug!!!

But this someone has to lack some brains to not realice that what she says is true no matter who say it. Besides she is not ugly and is sharp as a needle.

Ana Márquez said...

She isn't ugly at all... It's true :-) A hug!

Funny stuff.
Annie Hall is my wife's favorite movie.
Myself, I prefore the older Woddy Allen movies.
I always enjoy your take on things...

Gigi Peligro said...

Great speech... I totally agree with it... but does it change anything?

Guely of Sweden said...

even if Annie Hall is, I think, one of the old ones, I know what you mean: "the funny ones"!

You gotta watch the whole movie. And i think at least the message is there. Is like we guys cannot not say that we haven't been warned.

Try to watch the whole movie is really awesome.
