THE PASSION OF TIM



"Superstar Mel Gibson (Forever Young, Lethal Weapon 1,2 & 3) gives a sensitive performance as Tim, a mentally retarded young man who falls in love with an attractive businesswoman in her mid 40's (Piper Laurie)."

Special thanks to the King of Crayons for this "special" find! And to Odd Obsession for having a VHS copy that wasn't worn to shit!

I know you're not supposed to go "full retard," but if you're playing a retarded person, you might try acting at least slightly retarded.

Awww, it was Mel back when he was still Australian! Meeeemorieeeeesssss...

Did anyone else get the vibe that Tim was no stranger to "hosing out bushes"? The old woman in the beginning of the clip was all, "He's cute. He'll get the job done, huh huh huh! *wink wink*" I have a feeling that despite the fact he's rethaded (say it with an Australian accent), Tim sees a lot of sugar tits.

You know, I didn't think this was that bad a movie...if a 'tard that looked as good as Mel kept putting his sweet, short-short wearing ass in my face, I'd probably tap it, too...just sayin'.

So, from this I'm given to understand that a mentally retarded person is a person of average intelligence who is slightly more predisposed to declarative sentences.

Learning is fun!

There are some who call me... Tim?

"Eve was weak, Mama!"

Does Carrie know that her religious zealot mother is marrying a half-wit?! There goes another prom!

Who knew Catherine Martell from Twim Peaks would fall in love with what seems to be a perfectly normal Australian man with hot pants. Shure does look better than Pete ever did!

Mel Gibson: "What's the gist of the script"

Mel's Agent: "You play 'Tim' a gahdner who loiks teh bang old birds."

Mel Gibson: "Shrimp on the bahbie?"

Mel's Agent: "That's not a knoife - this is a knoife!"

Mel Gibson: "[Something extremely anti-semetic]"

Mel's Agent: "Crikey!"

Isn't that the dude from 'The Man Without A Face?'

I am shocked to find that children are being exposed to our greatest fear--indeed, what are perhaps the worst things in the world: Latin, robes, Harry Potter, reading, and, worst of all, AFRICA!

GOLD MEDAL.

Australia is so far ahead of the world with respect to equal-opportunity employment: They were giving film roles to Geico cavemen long before Americans would even consider them as a marketable TV gimmick.

Why doesn't he have the accent anymore?

Probably because he faked it for many Years. Mel was born in Peekskill, NY.

Voracious_Boot said...

I thought he didn't have the accent anymore because of his hatred of the Aborigines and vegemite sammiches. If he can pretend to be American there is no end to the things he can hate.

NO END.

That being said, totally want to see this movie. He looks like less of a wanker with all that fake blood on him.

Voracious_Boot said...

*growl* I meant to say: He looks like less of a wanker with all that fake blood *off* him. Silly me. He's a wanker either way.
