I think theKevin meant to imply he loudly exlaimed a high pitched “LOL”, possibly while slapping his thigh.

Hello, exactly.

Does she use mouthwash? Gargle?

I’d hit that.


What the hell is that? The Baby Sarlacc?

A lamprey. They like to suck things.

So do I. Will I develop those, or do I have to suck on certain things, like bounty hunters, in order to grow that shit?

Teeth Has Superhero Bite

Jess Weixler–who stars in Teeth as a girl who finds out she has fangs in her private parts–told SCI FI Wire that she approached the role as if it were a superhero origin story, like Batman or Spider-Man.

“Yes, I was hesitant to take the part at first, but then when the director [Mitchell Lichtenstein] explained it to me as the beginning of a superhero who is trying to find out what this vagina dentata thing is all about, then it made more sense to me,” said Weixler, 25, who won a Special Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival for her performance. “She figures out she is part of an evolutionary process, and she goes on to find herself. … By the end, she think she’s sexy and a woman who has this unique thing.”

First-time director Lichtenstein, who previously acted in Ang Lee’s The Wedding Banquet, said he wanted to explain to Weixler that the horror comedy is based on actual ancient legends that span many cultures.

“The way I convinced her that this was a cool part was to have her look at this like Peter Parker did when he found out he had some of his special talents that turned him into Spider-Man,” Lichtenstein said in an interview. “In a lot of ways, this is an origin movie of a female superhero who will take down abusive and predatory men in her own special way.” Lichtenstein also wrote the film.

In the movie, when men force themselves on Weixler’s Dawn, they find she has her own self-defense mechanism. Lichtenstein said that most well-known actresses were likely to refuse the part and that Weixler wanted to be sure Teeth wasn’t just another exploitive B horror film.

“When she saw it as the birth of a superhero, a girl who discovers some extraordinary powers, then Jess loved the idea of the role,” said the director.

Lichtenstein said that he encountered some trouble during the shoot in Austin, Texas, when officials at the local film commission thought they were making a porn movie.

“This plays to the fear of castration in guys, and it certainly will make people uncomfortable,” Lichtenstein said. “It has many different genres in it. I play off of the sci-fi movies of the '50s, with the hint of radiation that may have caused this mutation or evolution, depending on how you look at it. It’s also a comedy, and there’s enough blood and gross-out moments in it to satisfy an avid horror fan.”

Aw, man. That was distressingly on-topic.

I don’t know which one of the people on my friends list from Qt3 sent me this recommendation over Xbox Live, but I took you up on it, and spent the $4 to watch this movie today from Marketplace.

And… it was amusing and horrifying in equal parts. I still wouldn’t recommend it to anyone myself, but I’m not upset that I saw it. It was definitely entertaining.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and I had no idea what the movie was about. Obviously if you read the first page of this thread, there are heavy spoilers throughout. I’m glad I went in not knowing what on earth the movie was about.

This film was pure garbage.
