The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984)

July 31, 2011

If you haven’t watched this film you owe it to yourself to check it out.  Buckaroo is a totally enjoyable cult flick.  the narrative is uneven, the scenes jump around, yet it has an undeniable charm.

Here are some reasons you should watch it.

1. Aliens with nicknames such as John Yaya, John Smallberries, John Bigboote.

2. John Lithgow saying “Laugh-a while you can, monkey-boy.”

3. Jeff Goldblum in a cowboy outfit.

4. this line…”Hey, hey, hey, hey-now. Don’t be mean; we don’t have to be mean, cuz, remember, no matter where you go, there you are.”

Check it out on  Netflix instant.
