…It’s Movie Monday: JibJab 2009 Year In Reviw?

JibJab 2009 Year In Review

Every year, JibJab does a consistently hilarious look back at the year that was, and this year they’ve put together another funny montage of the things that made us laugh, cry and tweet in ’09. Enjoy:

…Flickr users don’t like Microsoft?

Microsoft Vs Flickr

To say that Flickr users aren’t exactly excited about the idea of Microsoft taking over Yahoo! and subsequently corrupting their user experience would be putting it lightly.

Currently, the Flickr group called “Microsoft: Keep Your Evil Grubby Hands Off Of Our Flickr” has North of 2,000 members, and over 200 photos have already been submitted.

It might not be pretty, but it’s definitely good for a laugh or two if you’ve never seen what a bunch of angry photo nerds can do with some time and a bucket full of motivation.

…You shouldn’t touch the rainbow?

This Skittles “Touch” commercial took top spot on Creativity Online’s Most Viewed of ’07 list, and for good reason.

Just try not to laugh at the end:

…Mano A Mano is funny?

…It’s Movie Monday: School For Scoundrels?

School of Scoundrels

Despite its Rotten score on the Rotten Tomatoes’ Critics Tomatometer:

Rotten Tomatoes’ Critics Tomatometer

I decided to rent School of Scoundrels this weekend, hoping that it was one of those movies that critics just don’t understand. Possibly because of my lowered expectations, I was pleasantly surprised by this charmingly sweet comedy that pit the wits of Billy Bob Thornton (of Angelina Jolie fame) against that of Jon Heder (of Napoleon Dynamite fame).

There were enough plot twists and turns to keep things edgy and unpredictable, and enough laugh out loud moments to keep things light hearted and moving, that by the end, I found I had actually enjoyed myself. Plus, the Rotten Tomatoes’ Users Tomatometer scored a somewhat solid 53%, so I know there are a few out there who agree with me. If you’re looking for a good date night renter, or just want something a little different for your comedy movie night, School of Scoundrels should definitely be on your list.

Grade: B
Rent Worthy: Yes
