My lack of knowledge on these two will force me to abstain from voting here yet again. :-[

I do think it's funny, though, what was written on the side of his car as he drove out of East Saint Louis. Does anyone else remember what that phrase was?


Is "Honky Lips" inappropriate to write in the forum?

Darn right it is, honky lips. Actually, I'd sure like it if I could change my screen name to honky lips.

I still sometimes proclaim that we're going to Wally World when I go on a trip (or that's just what I call Wal-Mart).


couldnt have summed it up better myself

Although I can't argue with Vacation winning, I voted best of show for a couple of reasons: 1. I think this poll should be closer than it is, and 2. I want to have Eugene Levy's children.

As others have said... Best in Show is deserving, but the original Vacation tops it slightly.


I want to put in a ;-D for all the movies by Chris Guest, Mike McEon, Harry Shearer, et al: This is Spinal Tap, Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman and A Mighty Wind...


They're all great.
