Smile, it’s friday

I think most of us can admit, watching cartoons, animation movies didn’t stop with passing childhood age, entering 18. And rightly so, why so serious anyway? And besides, today’s animation movies, their scripts, are made with everyone in mind we can agree on that too, kids and adults alike (at rare occasions, adults only, yeah, I look at you Sausage Party).

These movies often have excellent scripts: hilarious conversations, quick responses, with enough sarcasm, witty and funnily expressed deep wiseness (if you process it entirely and thinking through in some cases), hysterical poetries. My top favorite is from Hotel Transylvania 2, the morbid lullaby the grandson of Dracula receives from grandpa, in the tune of Twinkle, twinkle little star, which makes even more of a fun morbidity:

Suffer, suffer scream in pain,

Blood is spilling from your brain,

Zombies gnaw you like a plum,

Piercing cries and you succumb,

Suffer, suffer scream in pain,

You will never breathe again

Probably not a thing you would sing to a little one, but the scene was hilarious and adorable. And then about conversations of characters spoken, must love the sense of humor of creative minds:

“I want to do something for her… but what?”
“Well, there’s the usual things: flowers, chocolates, promises you don’t intend to keep…” (Beauty and the Beast)

 

“Honey?”
“What?”
“Where’s my super suit?”
“What?”
“Where is my super suit?!”
“I, uh, put it away.”
“Where?”
“Why do you need to know?”
“I need it!”
“Uh-uh! Don’t you think about running off doing no daring-do. We’ve been planning this dinner for two months!”
“The public is in danger!”
“My evening’s in danger!”
“You tell me where my suit is, woman! We are talking about the greater good!”
“‘Greater good’? I am your wife! I’m the greatest good you are ever gonna get!” (The Incredibles)

“I suffer from short-term memory loss. […] No, it’s true! I forget things almost instantly. It runs in my family! Well I mean… at least… I think it does. Hum… Where are they? … Can I help you?” — Dory (Finding Nemo)

“I think everything must go back to the fact that I had a very anxious childhood. You know, my mother never had time for me. You know, when you’re the middle child in a family of five million, you don’t get any attention. I mean, how is it possible?” (Antz)

You remember the much more recent Sausage Party?! That was the movie while I watched and laughed my ass off asked myself What did the makers smoke? When foods are alive, animation for adults only:

Druggie: You’re all alive and looking at me with your… with your gloves and your… your little shoes, and your arms and your legs… Pizza: Legs, huh? Look at me! Look at me! I ain’t got no legs, you fuck! You ate my goddamn legs!”

Used Condom: [as Barry goes lost in the alley, in difficulty] I begged them to stop, but then they just went. First, the gods stretched me till it hurt, then they went inside me, and then… And then… SPLOOGE! Look at me! LOOK AT ME!  [Barry screams and runs away]

And there is sometimes a little wisdom too:

“I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now.” — Edna Mode edna_mode_incredibles
