Monster of the Day #824

The gritty reboot of the “It’s the Plumber, He’s Here to Fix the Sink” sketch left fans of the original vocally dissatisfied.

  • SteveWD

    “and that is what grieves me most, you killed my snake!” (best fake giant snake in a movie, ever, by the way)

  • bgbear_rnh

    a snake that big really does not need the poisonous fangs.

  • Gamera977

    Yes, I’d figure a gallon of venom is bit overkill!

    Then again a snake that big would give me a heart attack before it even touched me…

  • Flangepart

    “My Arnie. What a big snake you had.”

  • zombiewhacker

    IIRC, James Earl Jones later turns into a snake himself, doesn’t he?

  • Rock Baker

    The Conan movie, right?

  • Ken_Begg

    Yes, although my favorite bit is when he takes a viper and turns it into an arrow.

    Not a huge fan of the movie, though. Too dour. I’m one of the few people who prefers the more lighthearted sequel.

  • Flangepart

    Bingo! Muscles, mayhem and Mammaries.

  • Greenhornet

    “I will not turn into a snake, it never helps.” The Evil Overlord List

  • zombiewhacker

    For me, the Basil Poledouris score made it watchable. (I have the OST on CD now, so I haven’t seen the movie itself for a good many years.)

  • Ken_Begg

    I’m not knocking it for other folks, it just wasn’t my bag.

  • Rodford Smith

    Actually, that’s been expanded to “Do *not* turn into a giant monster!”
