It won’t be better than this one
Every time you think the movie industry is completely out of ideas, they prove that there are even more unoriginal concepts than you can possibly imagine, and producers will throw money at. Thus is Medieval Times, the restaurant where you get to watch live jousting, on its way to becoming Medieval Times: The Feature Film.
Well, right now it’s in the shopping around stage. I suggest that if it does get picked up, a competing studio should immediately buy the movie rights to the Excalibur Casino in Las Vegas, which has a restaurant that’s exactly like Medieval Times in the basement. Competing joust-restaurant movies – how can we lose?
And just to tie everything together, since the best Medieval Times reference was in The Cable Guy, how long before it occurs to somebody to cast Larry the Cable Guy in a Cracker Barrel film?
It’s too bad the creepy Burger King and the Taco Bell chihuahua are retired.
Wait, did I really just write that? No! We must not accept chain-restaurant movies as a fait accompli! They need to stick to killing our arteries, and not expand their lethalness to our eyeballs and brain cells as well.
Although, to be fair, there is one that worked. And I give the company a ton of credit for going along with the joke.
