Rule #1: Brennan is under no circumstances allowed to EVER touch Dale’s drum set. When the temptation is too much for Brennan to handle, it ends with a bat and a golf club.

After the debacle, the boys are given a dreadful ultimatum: get jobs, or be kicked out of the house.

Wedding Crashers – Meatloaf

John Beckwith (played by Owen Wilson) and Jeremy Grey (Vince Vaughn) are two divorce mediators with two things in common: They are both committed womanizers and share the wild hobby of crashing weddings.

wedding crashers

Along their journey of picking up chicks (who are aroused by the mere thought of marriage) with no intentions of starting a real relationship, these guys find themselves at odds with one another when John falls in love with the beautiful, but taken, Claire Cleary. They meet at her sister’s wedding, and being undeniably in love with Claire, John accepts an invitation for a long weekend at the Cleary’s summer home. Both John and Jeremy encounter some unfortunate, yet comical mishaps over the weekend, ultimately having their true identities revealed.

With John and Jeremy no longer speaking, John seeks the advice and comfort from fellow party animal, Chazz (Will Ferrell). As John walks up the steps to Chazz’s home, he is to his surprise greeted by Chazz’s mother, an old cranky woman with the mouth of a sailor.

Once more to John’s surprise, Chazz enters the room wearing nothing but a silk red robe. It’s been months since John has seen or spoken to Jeremy or Claire, and is still feeling the pain. To make matters worse, Jeremy is engaged to Claire’s sister, Gloria.

“Good. More for us.” Chazz says in between shouts of, “MOM! MEATLOAF!” John politely tells Chazz he doesn’t want any meatloaf, but the cries demanding the traditional meal continue. “I’m living the dream,” Chazz says as he explains to John he is living with his mother and continuously finding beautiful women. Moments later one of these women enter the room and share a passionate kiss with Chazz. Seeing that there is still hope for himself (and not knowing Chazz found this girl at her boyfriend’s funeral), John’s spirits perk up.

“You know what, I will have some meatloaf. Let’s have some meatloaf.” “HEY MOM! THE MEATLOAF. WE WANT IT NOW. THE MEATLOAF!!!”

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy – Beef and Bean Burrito

In the male-dominated news world of the 1970s, Ron Burgundy is San Diego’s number one anchorman. But he better watch his back, because when ambitious reporter Veronica Corringstone enters the newsroom, that’s all about to change. At first, Burgundy sees his female competition as no competition at all. After all, her only assignments are cat fashion shows, cooking and other “female” topics.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

Burgundy and his crew of insensitive anchor buddies treat Corringstone like a cocktail waitress at the Gentlemen’s Club, making sleazy remarks and dropping lines like there’s no tomorrow.

Unfortunately for Burgundy, Veronica won’t stand for being treated like eye-candy, especially when it comes to her profession and passion. It’s not long before she demands hard news coverage and is given the chance to prove herself worthy.
