Mean While In The Movie..

In the year 2000, Dick Harper (Jim Carrey), an executive for a major media corporation called Globodyne, gets promoted to Vice President of Communications. He convinces his wife Jane (Téa Leoni) to quit her job as a travel agent to spend more time with their son, as his salary would be able to cover their expenses. On his first day on the job, however, while doing an interview on television, he learns that his CEO sold a majority of share of his stocks through shell companies, and Globodyne is accused of “perverting the American dream” by presidential candidate Ralph Nader (himself). As this happens, all of the company’s stocks drop to zero, and everyone, including Dick, loses their jobs, savings, and pensions. Dick goes back to the company to confront Jack McCallister (Alec Baldwin), the CEO, but he dismisses Dick’s concerns and flies away in the company’s helicopter.

Dick breaks the news to the family that night over dinner, but tries to assure them that he can find another job as vice president. However, over the next few months, he finds that Globodyne’s collapse has sent the overall economy into a recession, and thus left it next to impossible to find a new vice president position due to there being a large influx of other candidates. In addition, he becomes a target for ridicule because of the television interview. Even worse, Jane discovers that because their pension and all of their savings and investments were in Globodyne’s now-worthless stock, they now have no assets and face possibly losing their home.

Dick and Jane then accept low paying work, but they prove unable to keep their jobs, and after having their utilities cut off, they resort to selling their personal property and taking off-the-books work to stay afloat, the latter resulting in Dick getting arrested and deported, necessitating his illegal re-entry. When the family is given a 24-hour eviction notice, Dick, tired of being screwed around after doing everything right, decides to turn to a life of crime and persuades Jane to follow him. After a few mishaps, they finally manage to rob a head shop, and with newfound confidence, they proceed to get better at armed robbery. After a few nightly robbing sprees, they become more comfortable and professional over time, and eventually manage to retire their entire debt. For one last heist, they plan to steal from a local bank. All goes as planned until the Petersons – another couple formerly employed at Globodyne – make an amateurish attempt to rob the same bank. The Petersons are quickly arrested and Dick and Jane manage to use the mass hysteria to escape the police’s attention and head home, albeit empty-handed.

After watching a news report detailing the arrests of the Petersons and other former Globodyne employees who turned to similar illegal activities to make ends meet, the Harpers decide to cease their life of crime. However, Dick discovers that his failed interview with Ralph Nader has caused him to be investigated, and ultimately, indicted for his unwitting role in the company’s collapse. While drinking his sorrows at a fancy millionaire’s club, he stumbles upon the drunk former CFO of the company, Frank Bascombe (Richard Jenkins). When he and Jane confront Frank, the CFO remorsefully admits that McCallister had planned everything from the beginning: during Dick’s interview, the CEO diverted all of Globodyne’s assets and then dumped the entire stock, thus ruining the company and its employees and investors, and leaving Dick and Frank among others to take the blame, while embezzling a $400 million fortune and getting off scot-free. Frank, who is about to go to prison for 18 months after failing to expose McCallister’s crimes, got a $10 million bribe from him to stay quiet.

Frank tells Dick that McCallister plans to transfer his $400 million in bearer bonds to an offshore account and creates a plan with Dick and Jane to intercept the transfer from inside the bank and substitute a fake form, transferring the funds to an account Frank has established. Things go wrong when Dick loses the form by accident, so they enter the bank to print a new form while McCallister is there making the transfer, but McCallister realizes there are incorrections on the form and spots Dick. In a final attempt, Dick holds Jack discreetly at gunpoint and demands him to sign a check, which he does. Jane tells Dick that McCallister could cancel the check at any moment, but Dick reveals that it was all a ruse to get McCallister’s signature, and Jane, being an art major, can forge it.

The next day, McCallister is mobbed by reporters and former Globodyne employees, all praising him for a sudden “generosity” of his. Dick shows up as McCallister’s vice president and hands him a prepared statement, which McCallister reads on live television. He is shocked to announce that he has transferred $400 million to a trust fund to support Globodyne’s defunct pension plan in gratitude to his former employees and gets carried away by a cheering crowd, befuddled. A news report reveals the company’s former employees (including the imprisoned Petersons) receiving their pension checks from the fund, Dick has managed to avoid indictment, and McCallister’s net worth has been reduced to only $2,283.

A year later, Dick’s family drives a Volkswagen Rabbit convertible into the sunset. While Billy (Aaron Michael Drozin) is teaching his parents Spanish, Dick’s friend Garth (John Michael Higgins) approaches driving a brand new Bentley Azure, excited to reveal that he has a new job with great benefits at a company called Enron.

The Distinguished Gentleman… THE MOVIE REVIEW

By: Chad Rhodes

This is a good starting place to learn all about the insider politick’ing ways. Tell me if this does not ring true for todays circus they call congress in 2020.

Mean While In The Movie..

A Florida con man named Thomas Jefferson Johnson (Eddie Murphy) uses the passing of the longtime Congressman from his district, Jefferson Davis “Jeff” Johnson (James Garner) (who died of a heart attack while having sex with his secretary), to get elected to the United States Congress as a freshman Congressman, where the money flows from lobbyists. Omitting his first name, and abbreviating his middle name, he calls himself “Jeff” Johnson. He then manages to get on the ballot by pitching a seniors organization, the Silver Foxes, to endorse him.

Once on the election ballot, he uses the dead Congressman’s old campaign material and runs a low budget campaign that appeals to name recognition, figuring most people do not pay much attention and simply vote for the “name you know.” He wins a slim victory and is off to Washington, a place where the “streets are lined with gold.”

Initially, the lucrative donations and campaign contributions roll in, but as he learns the nature of the con game in Washington D.C., he starts to see how the greed and corruption makes it difficult to address issues such as campaign finance reform, environmental protection, and the possibility that electric power companies may have a product that is giving kids in a small town cancer.

In trying to address these issues, Congressman Johnson finds himself double-crossed by the Chairman of the Committee on Power and Industry, Rep. Dick Dodge (Lane Smith). Johnson decides to fight back the only way he knows how: with a con. Johnson succeeds and exposes Dodge as corrupt. As the film ends, it appears likely that Johnson will be thrown out of Congress for the manner in which he was elected, but he defiantly declares, “I’m gonna run for President!” then breaking the fourth wall.

Of course there was a critical response of negative to the movie.

The Distinguished Gentleman was released in December 1992 and went on to gross approximately $47 million at the domestic box office.[7][8] Critical reaction to the movie however was mostly negative. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times liked the premise and what it had going for it, but criticized it for its “slow pacing”, despite it being a screwball comedy.[9] Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly called it “a sterile, joyless comedy, photographed in ugly, made-for-video close-up and featuring a farce plot so laborious it suggests John Landis on a bad day”.[10] eFilmCritic.com called it a “tepid Eddie Murphy political farce”, and the film currently holds a 13% “Rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.[11]

The movie won the feature film Environmental Media Award in 1993, and in 2001 the Political Film Society gave the film its special award of the year.

So as we go forward into 2020 after the COVID19 plandemic they keep sending out the message through the boob tube everything will be different now. Big changes for our futures. Testing and vaccinations for everyone. Even if you are not sick. Constant testing.. FOR WHAT????

All Votes will be mailed in soon. Some states have now mandated that you need to sign and mail in ballots and return in the mail so they can match the signatures… BS…all votes will be fraud.

It doesn’t matter what party you choose. Your party will be chosen for you by a group. Doesn’t really matter any more who we vote for. Audios to the days of being baffled and buffaloed into thinking we actually choose that president…

You Wanted FREE CHEESE you Got It….

BACON PATCH, SERIOUSLY

By: Chad Rhodes  January 31, 2020

 

The man who has explored the “Perfect Meal” creates a new Bacon Patch for those who are jonesing for a little piggy…

Are your “Meat Cravings” driving you wild. Feeling a little animal instincts coming on in the middle of the night… HOWL, HOWL

The all new wearable meat patch is here… This is for all you veggie heads that can’t handle being without… It’s all about the flavor.

The All new “Scratch and Sniff” Meat Lovers Patch… Every time you scratch it, you get a burst of bacon… Ummmm Yummy.

This could be dangerous for models and those types of people who don’t eat in the first place. Just think the new diet concept…

Everyone at the Grammy’s wearing their meals on their sleeves.

Meet the mad scientist and creator Prof. Charles Spence. He is an experimental psychologist at the University of Oxford. He is the head of the Crossmodal Research group which specializes in the research about the integration of information across different sensory modalities. He also teaches Experimental Psychology to undergraduates at Somerville College. He is currently a consultant for a number of multinational companies advising on various aspects of multisensory design. He has also conducted research on human-computer interaction issues on the Crew Work Station on the European Space Shuttle, and currently works on problems associated with the design of foods that maximally stimulate the senses, and with the effect of the indoor environment on mood, well-being, and performance. Charles has published more than 500 articles. So as you can see he knows his shit.

Finally this research can be viable with todays “meatless market”. A plant based company asked the “Flavor Professor” to create the patch for them. Hoping this will help bring the “Meat Eaters over to the Vegan side.

Well that’s our Science information for today….

RITA MAE BROWN

BY: Chad Rhodes

Rita Mae Brown is an outstanding writer.

In 1973 I had the opportunity to read Ruby Fruit Jungle at the tender age of 13 years old. What an eye opening adventure. I laughed, I cried, but mainly I wondered what it was like to be these characters. Every day after school I would rush home and shut my door and dive into the book. I would read until my mom called us for dinner. I thank Rita Mae Brown for opening my mind and giving me the opportunity to read and experience this book.

This is how it all starts… Peloton Wife breaks her silence…

By: Linda Rhodes

Usually my husband writes the articles. But due to the fact of all the controversy over this subject he thought it would be best if the view came from a woman. So here it is.

Many viewers of the controversial Peloton holiday commercial have had some very negative malicious feedback towards the man in the Peloton ad started a fire storm online.

Everyone wanted to add their 2 cents of really negative comments. Comments suggesting that he was a womanizer to a beast that beats his wife. REALLY PEOPLE!!!!

All you paranoid “Debbie Downers” she is not abused physically nor emotionally. She likes looking great. She likes being healthy. That’s what the commercial is about. Living Healthy

What is wrong with wanting to look and feel wonderful? You can stay home and continue to force feed yourself and your family till you all tip the scales off the chain. That is your choice. But stop making it seem that this is a bad thing for women. It’s a good thing to exercise…

Didn’t your mom tell you to keep your mouth shut if you didn’t have anything nice to say about someone… Well heed to the saying… There, now you can have something new to be pissed off about… Your Welcome!!

Peloton issued a statement over the controversial ad, saying in part, “Our holiday spot was created to celebrate that fitness and wellness journey. While we’re disappointed in how some have misinterpreted this commercial, we are encouraged by — and grateful for — the outpouring of support we’ve received from those who understand what we were trying to communicate.

I LOVE MY PELOTON …

This is how politics work… Canadian bacon

BY: Chad Rhodes

Politics at it’s finest. If we pay close attention to the theatre and the movies it’s all played out for our eyes to see. We can even press rewind and its still the same throughout time.

I am amazed that so many of us think it’s another comedy or drama. True world events explained in plain English. It’s entertainment.

Synopsis

  • Thousands of former employees are outraged with military businessman R.J. Hacker (G. D. Spradlin), who had closed down his weapons manufacturing plant, Hacker Dynamics. At a conference held at the former plant, he pins the blame for the shutdown of his business on the current President of the United States (Alan Alda), who has just arrived. The President defends his own belief that the future of the children is more important than war, a belief that has caused major decline in his approval rating. However, after the conference, he expresses to his closest companions, General Dick Panzer (Rip Torn) and National Security Advisor Stuart Smiley (Kevin Pollak), his discontent about not having an enemy to engage in war. An attempted negotiation with Russian President Vladimir Kruschkin (Richard E. Council) to start a new cold war with Russia fails.

    However, a local American sheriff named Bud Boomer (John Candy) makes a displeased remark about Canadian beer while watching a hockey game between a Canadian and American team in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The ensuing brawl ends up on the news, and is seen by Stuart. After collecting more information about Canada from a CIA agent named Gus (Brad Sullivan), he suggests Canada as a new enemy to the President. Before long, the television channels are littered with anti-Canada propaganda, which Boomer notices and believes to be true. He prepares for war by distributing guns to his fellow sheriffs, including his girlfriend Honey (Rhea Perlman) and their friends Roy Boy (Kevin J. O’Connor) and Kabral Jabar (Bill Nunn).

    After they apprehend a group of Americans dressed as Canadians attempting to destroy a hydroelectric plant, they sneak across the border to litter on Canadian property, which leads to Honey being left behind and subsequently arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. In a rescue attempt, Boomer, Roy Boy and Kabral sneak into a Canadian power plant and cause a countrywide blackout. When the President learns of this, he orders Boomer’s immediate removal from Canada before it’s too late.

    To make matters worse, Hacker takes revenge on the President for ordering the closure of his business by using a software program called the Hacker Hellstorm to activate missile silos across the country. The President learns that the signal causing the activation of the silos originated from Canada, and summons Hacker. Hacker offers to sell a program to the President that can cancel out the Hellstorm for $1 trillion. With only six minutes left, as Hacker leaves, despite the President telling him not to and trying to figure out what’s going on, Stuart realizes that Hacker is the one controlling the silos, and takes, from him, the operating codes required to stop the Hellstorm, killing him in the process after Stuart delivered a punch, unintentionally.

    The President orders Stuart’s arrest, despite his protests that he is now able to deactivate the missiles. As the launch time approaches for the missiles, which are aimed at Moscow, the President pleads with Canadian Prime Minister Clark MacDonald (Wallace Shawn) over the phone to stop the launch. However, Honey, who was taken to a mental hospital upon her capture and has escaped all the way to the CN Tower, discovers the central computer for the Hellstorm located at the top. She attacks the computer with a machine gun, destroying it and subsequently aborting the launch sequence, much to the relief of the President and his staff. She then reunites with Boomer, who had tracked her to the Tower, and they return to the United States via a speedboat across Lake Ontario.

    An ending montage reveals the fate of all of the characters: Boomer realized his dream of appearing on Cops, Honey has been named “Humanitarian of the Year” by the National Rifle Association, Kabral has become a hockey star, and MacDonald is “still ruling Canada with an iron fist.”
