"Five trailers later, the movie is starting and we’re meeting the Oogieloves. Their names are Toofie, Zoozie and Goobie and apparently they are in a band together and feel compelled to sing a song about how they’re Oogieloves. They are using the word Oogielove as if it’s an entity we’re all familiar with from other family films, like “The Oogieloves Take Manhattan” or “Teenage Mutant Ninja Oogieloves.”
A Celebritology commenter noted in yesterday’s post that a mirror flirts with a vacuum cleaner in this movie. That must have been a joke, right?
12:51 p.m.: Oh my God. It was not a joke.
We are told that every time that Toofie’s pants fall down, we all have to shout: “Goofy Toofie! Pick up your pants!” His pants fall down. The dad, the 4-year-old and I remain silent in a form of political protest.
The “Princess Bride” fan who lives inside my heart screams out: “This is not as I wish, Farm Boy! This is not as I wish!”
