He's refering to that new movie with Gyneth Paltrow...where she plays a stewardess (although it looks like they had Lisa Kudrow in mind for the role).

Oh, is that what it is. I thought it was an exercise in "Torgo-speak"

The movie is " A View From The Top," a...stewardess comedy. Whoa, talk about genres that did not need revival. Myers has a small role as a cross-eyed trainer (Karen Black reference?); the line that has Toadman's panties in a knot is Myers' mocking response to a stewie-trainee who has just instructed passengers to "ASS ASS (assess)  the window."

It doesn't look good at all, but that's hardly Myers' fault. The comedies he makes himself have tended to be highly popular lately. (And if one finds that they provoke health problems, they're incredibly easy to avoid, because his name is featured prominently in the publicity.)

And no, Toad, if you put the emphasis on the wrong syllable, you wouldn't be pronouncing it correctly. The word that should have tipped you off: "wrong." Der.

Yes, Mike Myers. Or as I like to refer to him, the Anti-Christ of Comedy.

But it has a fight scene directed by Sammo Hung! Can it really be all that bad?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
