"The Price is Wrong, Bob"

I showed my students the movie Happy Gilmore, a cinematic gem.  They seem to really respond to people being physically injured or people behaving in a silly manner.  I had been showing them action movies, because those are the movies where dialogue matters the least.  I think their favorite scene may have been watching Adam Sandler get beaten up by Bob Barker.  Even without knowing who he is, they loved it.  They like the action scenes, but tend to turn off when it comes to plot points.  In this way I think we're all the same.  They also love children's movies, and I think this is kind of a kid's movie.  Maybe adult size children, such as myself and most of my friends.

P.S. I don't care how old he is, I bet Bob Barker is tough.
