Did we ever figure out what sex Pat was?

It’s one of the rare films that have a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes (of course that’s cause only 11 people watched the movie), It’s Pat was a 1994 flick based off the popular Saturday Night Live character. The film centered on Pat, an obnoxious job-hopper of indeterminable sex who is searching for a steady foundation in life. What does that mean? It means the running joke was that we never knew if Pat was a guy or a girl. Great for a sketch, even a couple of them, but for a full length movie….no thank you. The film opened in three cities, and allegedly grosses only $60,822. Not only was it a box office failure but the critics ate it alive. “Shocking unfunny” was one of the many poor reviews actress Julia Sweeney and the film received.  The film was clear frontrunner to take home the many Razzie awards it was nominated for…that is until Showgirls won them all. The interesting thing was that the plot (and sketches) always centered on find out Pat’s …

Thunder in Paradise

I watched this show every week when I was a kid. It was mostly because I was a big wrestling fan back then and this show would have cameos from wrestlers and starred the biggest wrestler of his time Hulk Hogan, although he went by Terry “Hulk” Hogan for the show (no one wants to know your name!) I also had a soft spot for the show because I got to tour the set before the show premiered on a family trip to…I want to say Disney World? Yeah that sounds about right. My lack of memory for where the set was located goes hand and hand with my lack of memory for what this show was about. I think they were police or maybe Fed-Ex employees…who can remember. Anyway, one fact I remember about the show was the mellow tones of the opening theme song didn’t seem to match the action packed intensity of what the show was trying to be. Although, I could be wrong, you decide:

S Club 7 Reunited

Okay, this is actually old news. But it’s the first time I’m hearing of this, so I’m going to assume it’s the first time you’re hearing of this. Apparently S Club 7 is back together. Don’t remember S Club 7? S Club 7 was the British Pop group that was manufactured in 1998 by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller. The group rose to fame through a BBC TV sitcom-like series (similar to the Monkies) which helped them sell over 10 million albums of cliche 90’s pop music. Girls liked them cause the guys were cute and music was bubble gum. Guys liked the show cause the girls were hot…and the guys were cute. The group disbanded in 2002, but have since returned in 2012. Not fully though, only 3 of the original members returned to form S Club 3. The best comment on YouTube for this video is…”They’re all fat now. Mind you, would still give Jo one ;)”. Good one. Some of the members have decided to try their fate at a singles …

Full House reunion for Super Bowl ad? Yes Please!

Full House Reunion!…sort of. As happy as I am to see Uncle Jesse, Joey and Danny Tanner back together to promote…ah…yogurt? Yeah that sounds right. I do have some problems with this commercial. 1. The woman uncle Jesse is trying to get a blow jay from by putting yogurt on his crotch (I believe this storyline was actually stolen from an episode of Full House entitled ‘Jesse gets a blowjob’) is NOT in fact his Full House wife Rebecca. So the question must be asked, did they get divorced?! If so, can I call her? Seriously, the years have been kind to Lori Loughlin. 2. I assume this is Uncle Jesse’s house, so what happened to Joey and Danny to make them move in with Jesse? Did they lose their jobs? I mean Joey was hosting the Rush Hour Renegades with Jesse, so shouldn’t he be employed still if Jesse is? Did they cancel ‘Wake Up San Francisco’ leaving Danny out of job? And if Jeff Dunham is so damn popular it’s safe to imagine …
