I bet there were a whole bunch of people that had a chance to go to Woodstock, but didn't go.
BUDDY: Hey, wanna go see Woodstock?
SHEMP: Woodstock? The yellow bird from Snoopy?
SHEMP: Then I'm not interested.
That guy probably spends every day thinking about how he missed it.
He had a chance to go to one of the most talked about shows of all time and he missed it.
I may have done the same thing this weekend.
I went to see The Shaggy Dog, Tim Allen's latest attempt to say "HEY! I used to be a drug dealer, but now I am a role model to your kids."
Robert Downey Jr. is along for the ride in this flick, but your kids won't look up to him.
He's really short.
By the way, here is a picture of Tim Allen's mug shot from his cocaine arrest in 1978:
He spent the next 30 months in jail.
Tim has also been arrested for drunk driving in 1997. He didn't have a silly mustache in 1997, so I am not interested in seeing any photos from that arrest.
Anyway, I saw the film.
But, I saw it at a multiplex.
I did not see it at Disney's El Capitain Theater on Hollywood Boulevard.
I love the El Capitain (I know, saying "The El Capitain" is like saying "the the captain" or "el the captain.")
The theater is ALWAYS a great place to see ANY film, but their showing of The Shaggy Dog might just be the greatest single theater experience of all time.
Take a look at the advertisement:
See! "Shaggy" go onstage and does tricks before the show! Isn't that awesome??!??!?
He carries flowers, catches a Frisbee, dances and appears to give a "black power" salute by raising his paw in the air.
Isn't that cute?
I look around at the multiplex and saw NOTHING like this. There was a fat guy there who MIGHT have been wearing Tim Allen's old mustache.
He did let me call it "Shaggy" when I asked him. But he got really mad at me when I threw a Frisbee at his nose.
