SATURDAY SOFA CINEMA: UNCLE BUCK

unclebuck12049

Uncle Buck is on today – it is good. Have you seen it?
“No, I don’t watch anything made before 2005″
“FUCK OFF THEN.”
“I haven’t but I’d like to see it”
“WELL WATCH IT TODAY THEN.”
“I have seen it”
“GOOD. YOU ARE A ‘COOL’ THEN.”

If you haven’t yet seen it, it’s about a bumbling and irresponsible uncle (the best kind) who gets put in charge of a bunch of children (including that kid off the Black or White video) when their parents have to travel across America. But this uncle isn’t just any bumbling uncle, he’s UNCLE BUCK – the bumbliest uncle of them all! He’s an unemployed gambler and isn’t exactly fully equipped to look after kids, especially precocious American brats like some of this lot – but then again he is JOHN CANDY so we wouldn’t worry about it if we were you.

John Candy is the bee’s nuts and we would happily have spent a week with him and put all of our trust in him no matter what our parents said. So we don’t know what everyone was worrying about. And if anything did go wrong, that kid from Home Alone 2 has bare skills for taking care of things when shit hits the fan, so chill out.

Anywho, it’s on ITV2 at 6pm. Watch it etc.
