Dead Ant

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 9, 2020 at 5:52pm PST Never pee on an ant on sacred Native American lands after taking cursed peyote. I mean, that’s just common sense, right? Well, apparently, the members of 80s Glam Rock Band Sonic Grave do not have […]

Leprechaun Returns

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jan 11, 2020 at 5:20pm PST A direct sequel to the first Leprechaun, would you be surprised to hear that Jennifer Aniston is nowhere to be found? You know who WAS around from the first film? Ozzie, better known as Francis […]

Victor Crowley

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Oct 14, 2018 at 5:40pm PDT My husband records the weirdest movies. At first I thought it was a typical slasher movie, but then it went all meta, a survivor writing about a massacre ten years ago and then a group […]

A Tale of Two Coreys

I felt dirty just watching this. A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Mar 16, 2018 at 9:10pm PDT Lifetime is already known for shitty, exploitive “biopics”, like the ones they did on Saved by the Bell and Full House. This one goes one step further into the abyss, by skipping past petty grievances and […]

Get Him to the Greek

Why does Russell Brand have a career again? Seriously, I don’t get it – he’s not all that funny. And when he is funny, it’s so far over the line, that he’s guilted into apologizing for it later. (His Jonas Brothers jokes, for example…) He should take a page from Ricky Gervais and Sacha Baron […]

Grandma’s Boy

The good thing about having friends – besides getting into shenanigans – is forcing them to watch movies you love. So after forcing Amy to watch Carrie (They’re all gonna laugh at you!), she forced me to watch Grandma’s Boy. She’d been after me for probably a year to see it, even lent me the […]

Pineapple Express

“I just don’t think this kind of shit is as funny as you do…” Oh really? Why are you laughing your ass off, then? My husband did have a point – this is exactly the kind of shit that I think is funny. Friday, Half Baked, Super Troopers, Jay & Silent Bob…all rate rather highly […]

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

While it’s not at all considered bad taste to like The Beatles, The Bee Gees or Peter Frampton individually, it is most definitely bad taste to like watching Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. I had the bright idea to turn Friday nights into “Movie Night” for my kids, intending to show them the films […]

The Serpent and the Rainbow

For the longest time, I thought this film was about vampires. For years, the poster for The Serpent and the Rainbow hung in the window at Showtime Video and creeped the bejesus out of me. (This is Waller we’re talking about – the posters only got changed when they were stolen or someone peed on […]

The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years

Before there was Celebrity Rehab, there was The Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years. If the last decade of knobbygirl-ness proves nothing else, it proves that I’ve got an overdeveloped sense of schadenfreude. I fucking love watching people embarrass themselves – especially celebrities. It’s even better when they’re getting paid for it. VH1 […]
