How much do I love Broken Lizard?  Well, I’ve seen their sophomore outing, ‘Club Dread’, at least a dozen times and I actually looked forward to their revamp of ‘The Dukes Of Hazzard.’  (That, I will admit, was a mistake.)  Still, among my favorites of their outings is probably ‘Beerfest‘, the ragtag story of a group of everyday schlubs who become a world-class drinking team to save the family brewery, ‘Meatballs’-style.  There’s a lot going on in that film, most of which mercilessly parodies the Inspirational Sports Movie genre, with some unexpectedly deep character work for a comedy/parody film.  It even reminds us that everyone has SOME talent that might headline a hypothetical Yourfest, even if it’s just drinking, leading us to today’s Eye-Of-The-Tiger query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has always wanted to take the Critical Hit crew and crush some bar trivia quiz, asking: If you were to gather a group of your friends to star in an inspiring overcome-the-odds tale, what hypothetical festival, competition or race would be Yourfest?

Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
