10 Life Lessons: “Wedding Crashers” Edition

Wedding Crashers” was one of those sleeper hits for me. I wasn’t expecting anything when I watched it, and ended up laughing my ass off the entire time. It’s a pretty good depiction of how things go, so long as you can get past your base reaction of, “Fuck these guys. They’re assholes.”

Of course they are. But that’s partially the point of the whole thing. But there’s a freak in all of us to match someone else’s. My family is just as nuts as the Cleary family, and I’m betting yours is, too. It’s a movie about love, friendship, family, and all the bullshit that can try to break it down.

So let’s get hopped up and make some bad decisions with these life lessons from John and Jeremy and the Cleary clan…


10) “I’m not perfect. But who are we kidding? Neither are you. And you wanna know what? I dig it!”

09) “That’d be awesome. We could get something like big game. Even like a gorilla or a rhinoceros or a fucking human being! That’ll get you jacked up.”

08) “Just a couple of kids who like to fuck, tryin’ to make it honest, I get it… “

07) “Would you say you’re completely full of shit or just 50%?”

06) “I know, but the whole funny-because-it’s-true bit only works if the truth is a *small* thing like “everyone knows Jennifer likes to shop, ha ha ha”. I think you’re better off going with something from the heart. Honestly.”

05) “I’d like to be pimps from Oakland or cowboys from Arizona but it’s not Halloween. Grow up Peter Pan, Count Chocula.”

04) “Honey, it’s ok to be vulnerable sometimes, it’s just me.”

03) “Please don’t take a turn to negative town.”

02) “Rule #76: No excuses. Play like a champion!”

01) “You know how they say we only use 10 percent of our brains? I think we only use 10 percent of our hearts.”
