Colin Friels as Malcolm in 'Malcolm'

For the benefit of non-aussies who may not have seen it, this is a very funny movie about a painfully shy mechanical genius who works for the tramways, until he gets the sack for building his own tram out of spare parts. He then gets led astray by an ex-con, and uses his mechanical genius to embark on a life of crime, committing some very funny robberies.

A film no geek should miss.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Well, bugger me, I remember that now! That's the one where the ex-con's girlfriend is walking around in something comparatively skimpy in Malcolm's presence, the ex-con tells her to put something more on, so she then goes to the opposite extreme with a big fluffy jumper, shapeless jeans, etc. Funny the things you remember.

You gotta include Samantha Carter from SG-1.

Also:

Eddie from Jurasic Park: The Lost World.
Thomas Dolby.
Don't know their names, but the father-daughter team of the Godzilla Detection Network from Godzilla 2K.

LOL, SupportGoddess, I meant that she dressed really chaste in that movie, like those polygamist in Colorado River. Everything covered, ankle socks with a dress, ewww! C'mon! The best of the worst of the late 80's/early 90's. [cry baby] I stand by my mousey look comment. [Smile]

psht, langley was my favorite. in a show of my poorest taste, i loved the lone gunmen's spinoff show.

most of the cast of freaks and geeks was entirely too awesome, but my favorite member of that cast was the their D&D game master, with such choice quotes as, "every night's a makeout party with judith." [Big Grin]

Can someone translate this into English for me? What's the connection between someone with multiple spouses, and chastity? I mean... polygamy and chastity are literal opposites, aren't they?

And what does either one of them have to do with clothing?

And what's Colorado River? If I google for it, I just get... the actual river by that name. Even if I put "Colorado River movie", I still get nothing enlightening.

Well, there's the Colorado River which used to run to the Gulf of Mexico but doesn't because of all the damming and draining for irrigation, but I associate that more with hysterical news headlines than chaste polygamists.

Maybe she meant Colorado City. That's over on the Utah border. Lots of very fundamentalist Mormoms over there. More Mormom than their counterparts in Utah even.

Yes, I believe the reference is to the Colorado City polygamist communities.
Very strange indeed.

My bad. Thanks for the linky, MTB Babe!
It's Colorodo City. I guess my mind was on Laughlin. Those girls dress really chaste but they're married to one guy. Strange, no? Yes!
