Hey, we all love movies! We love going to movies, we love watching movies on our telephones, we love seeing movies we didn’t even ever want to see if it’s showing for free on an airplane because for some reason being up in the sky for hours makes every movie seem highly watchable. Movies! Talk about them with your friends. Share your favorite quotes. YOU. QUOTE. MY. MOVIESHAKE. And if you’re really into a movie, sometimes it’s fun to re-enact it. Just pick your favorite scene from any movie and perform a variation on it that will definitely make sense to anyone who’s ever seen the movie. They’ll think you’re so funny and clever. This situation is just like that scene. How contextually appropriate. And most importantly: fun! Like, for example, if you’re a school teacher, start slapping a child in the face and then be like “Bridesmaids!” She’ll know. Everyone will know. That movie was very popular, and your re-enactment is absolutely perfect. From TMZ:
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … 9th grade Malibu High School student Dionne Evans went to cops in the last few days, claiming her teacher slapped her 6 times in the face because Dionne didn’t bring her notebook to school on May 22, as the teacher had required.
According to the police report, the teacher made Evans stand in front of the class — then asked, “Did you see ‘Bridesmaids’?” before slapping her multiple times.
The teacher was referring to the scene in which one character literally tries to slap some sense into another.
OH SURE, WHO COULD NOT REMEMBER THAT DELIGHTFUL SCENE FROM THE HIT FILM BRIDSESMAIDS?! When the little girl went to the cops and told them what happened they were probably just like, Well? Did you? Because if you had seen Bridesmaids, you would TOTALLY get it. Your teacher was clearly referencing the part in the movie where an adult in a position of power humiliated and physically abused a child who had been placed under her guidance because of some fucking notebook. I was about to make a joke about how the appropriate response would have been for the student to have diarrhea on the teacher’s desk, but the thing is that actually kind of makes sense, whereas the teacher hitting the student in front of the class is just awful. So I didn’t make the joke! Because it would have seemed in some small way to have justified or legitimized what the teacher did. No way, Jose. The judge should recreate that scene from Happy Gilmore where he throws a teacher in jail.
