Steve Martin Is a Terrible Dentist!














Hello! And welcome to Steve Martin video week!

Let's face it. All of us at the age of 10 wanted to marry Steve Martin. (Don't deny it, straight guys. You're not impervious.) The white hair. The Cowboy Gill scene in Parenthood. The mad banjo skills. He's ADORABLE. So, this week while I am seriously busy with work, I am going to provide you with some of Steve Martin's greatest moments. And then next week, I will return with fresh posts. In the meantime, try not to fall in love with Steve Martin. I know it's hard.

Think of it like the day your teacher decided she would rather show you a filmstrip and sit in the back of the classroom drinking vodka than force you to take notes over chloroplasts. So, make yourself a very small bowl of popcorn and kick back for the next 2 minutes and 32 seconds and enjoy my favorite scene from Little Shop of Horrors.

Umm, I expect to see some "Jerk" posts as well. That was the creme de la creme of Steve Martin's career. That and LA Story. Lordy, is it getting hot in here?

The Honorable Mayor of Bethville said...

@Jenn: OF COURSE. I spent several minutes last night searching for the part with the paint cans. It's really hard to find for some reason.

Can we get some "All of Me" up in here? The half-feminine,half-masculine walk alone is worth it.

The Honorable Mayor of Bethville said...

@MsDirector: OH! Of course! And The Man With Two Brains! There is just not enough time in this week to put up all the clips I want. Boo!

Jenn said...

Te he! I liked "Two Brains" Especially when Kathleen Turner sets the brain out in the sun and she loses some of the alphabet.

Where do we see animals? "In a oo." Hehe.

OK, I am so glad I am not the only one who was in love with Steve Martin back in the day. My sister and I were nuts over him, since "Three Amigos" was our favorite movie, and the King Tut song was the greatest thing I'd ever heard, at the time.

@Jen: The part in Three Amigos when he is trying to get out of the dungeon. "Gonna make it. Gonna make it. Gonnamakeit. Gonnamakeit. Gonnamakeit."
