Pulp Fiction – Cheeseburger Royale

Wanna know what they call a quarter pounder with cheese in Amsterdam? A cheeseburger royale. Wanna know why they call it that? Because of the metric system.

Broken into three fictional stories, Pulp Fiction is a movie you won’t want to miss a second of. As most Quentin Tarantino films go, even when paying the closest of attention, you might have to watch it a few times just to figure out what the heck is going on.

Pulp Fiction

Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega are two hitmen working for mob boss Marsellus Wallace. While on a mission to retrieve a suitcase stolen from Wallace, Vega is also responsible for entertaining Wallace’s wife, Mia, while he is out of town. To Vega’s luck, Mia ends up overdosing on cocaine and barely escapes death.

Butch Coolidge is a boxer who’s getting old fast. He is paid by Wallace to throw his next fight but instead accidentally kills his opponent and keeps the money. When Wallace and Coolidge stumble into a weaponry shop trying to kill each other, Coolidge ends up saving Wallace from a dreadful fate. The two agree to never speak of the incident again, and Coolidge makes plans to flee town.

Honey Bunny and Pumpkin are lovebirds as well as partners in crime. The couple is at a restaurant discussing the pros and cons of robbing banks when they decide to rob the restaurant right then and there. Thanks to Jules, a successful robbery won’t be easy. Watch as these seemingly unrelated stories come together in a funny, bizarre and shocking manner. Afterwards, try this cheeseburger royale. Your friends will be impressed with your knowledge of the metric system.
