I haven't seen this one! Went ahead and bought the stream on Amazon as I'm sure I'll want to watch it more than once.

I remember when I watched Citizen Cane for the first time it seeming all oddly familiar. It took me awhile before I realized that 70% of the movie had been done on The Simpsons at some point.

Get ready for 'The Jazz Singer' then - that's directly parodied in the episode 'Like Father, Like Clown', where Krusty longs to be a clown but his father, Rabbi Krustovsky, refuses to acknowledge him.

All this time, I thought it was based on Yentl.

Nope. I was reading the synopsis of 'The Jazz Singer' and I had one of those moments CamB mentions above about the 'Citizen Kane' realizations that everything you've thought was original was just a parody... This quote in particular:

 

Back at the family home Jack left long ago, the elder Rabinowitz instructs a young student in the traditional cantorial art. Jack appears and tries to explain his point of view, and his love of modern music, but the appalled cantor banishes him: "I never want to see you again — you jazz singer!" As he leaves, Jack makes a prediction: "I came home with a heart full of love, but you don't want to understand. Some day you'll understand, the same as Mama does."

 

Reading that, I was like, HOLY SHIT, that's that Krusty episode. Never had any clue.

'Be Our Guest' is (horribly) covered and remixed in 'Descendants', the Disney Channel movie that is proof that my children hate me and want me to be unhappy. But every time they watch it and I get 'Be Our Guest' in my head, I always sing it as 'See My Vest'. That's some solace.

First, thanks for the invite, CakeBug!

 

Second, I've never seen this movie, and I don't generally dig on musicals, but I got love for Dolly, and she's pretty smoking hot in that movie poster.

 

Third, has anyone ever seen the episode of The Venture Bros where Dr. Venture thinks that Whorehouse is a porn?

I just watched this because Amy Nichols pitted it against 9 to 5 on The Canon. I am so down with rewatching it.

Please tell me 9 to 5 won because there's literally nothing that compares to that trio together!

I was really disappointed when the Sinatra Guys and Dolls didn't have that much music in it for me to change the words to match this parody. But everyone will be happy to know that I even parodied this parody to make it about my cat.

Princess Himalaya?

I forgot about that! This reminds me to post my favorite review from Amazon. I know it's too soon to discuss, but this can't wait.

His name was Tiger and so I would sing to him "Tiger be that jedi tonight!"

Yeah, sure that was written by a woman named 'Mary'.

"SELFISHNESS" is the only word that describes Dolly's desire to not be naked on camera.

 

But really, who would ever want to compete with this:
