M. Night Shabba Doo

If you are a fan of movies that feature a twist ending, you will love the films of M. Night Shabba Doo. One of his most famous films is the medical thriller Dr. Boogie:





Twist ending: He's not really a doctor!


Here's another M. Night Shabba Doo film with a shocking twist ending:





Who the hell could have seen that coming? Even the cast was surprised!

As an aside, I've never seen The Sixth Sense. I'd read a review of it in the local paper, and shortly afterwards a co-worker had mentioned that she'd seen it, and that it had an incredible twist ending. I was familiar with the premise of the film, so I said, "Incredible twist ending? Let me guess- **REDACTED: SPOILER**." She scratched her head and asked, "You're right, how did you figure that out?"

Sheesh, doesn't everybody have to read Ambrose Bierce in middle school?

As another aside, one of the best movie reviews I ever read was a review of Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo which proclaimed that the movie was "primarily of interest to Shabba Doo completists." I wish I remembered who wrote that brilliant line.

THAT is laugh-out-loud funny. I look forward to learning who among my bloggy friends is a Shabba Do completist. *guggaw*

w/v says I am "worti," but does not know I am not that kind of witch.

"guffaw" also works here. I have no idea what guggawing entails. Probably something odd and disgusting. You know, something you'd learn about from Riddled.

I figgered out the incredible twisty ending to Sixth Sense just from hearing several zillion adverts for it on the radio.

WV is "heintag." I'll let German-speakers figure that one out.

Uh, you ever see the governor of New Jersey?

Hey, you don't have to immediately become a "completist" now. You can break into your Shabba Doo addiction gradually.

I REALLY like this M.Night much better than..that other one.

That one whose name we will never mention... EVAR!!

You've mellowed, you used to be a grammar fascist.

It also helps to have a good grounding in literary tradition.
