    Anyone else seen this movie? Its pretty funny.

    The end, about how the punk image is bull and rebellion is all in the mind, etc... Me and my friends had been saying that for a while. We went through a punk phase, and realized it was BS rather quickly.

    I love the beginning when the guy is on acid, and Bob comes over, and the dude thinks he is Jesus... and he is like "The devil is in my house. He killed my mom, and turned her into a giant bull."

    That whole scene is hilarious.

    Hello, and welcome to 1999. You're a bit late, Mike. Your tardiness has been noted.

    The scene where they talk about the kids with Union Jacks on their jackets is funny, but aside from that it's pretty mediocre.

    Decline of Western Civilization, now THAT'S a funny movie.
  6. Earlier today I was walking up the stairwell in my school, and someone wrote "F*** The System!" and wrote an Anarchy symbol. And someone wrote underneath it in a different colour pen "Stupid!" By the time I came back there, they had painted over it. I was going to add "I concur". Stupid angsty freshman. They're just too hxc for skool.

    That's a sweet movie, Bob's death scene is probably one of the most powerful scenes I've ever seen in a movie, which is pretty good for how low budget the movie was.

    Another nice walk down memory lane seeing some of those old screen names.

    Pretty good flick. I liked the whole "why do we fight" physiological thing.

    Loved this movie! If i ever finally lose my sanity, i want to be like Bob's dad, living in a shack by the junkyard, a shotgun & not a care in the world.

    Did not know there was an slc2 coming.
