what would Squints do?

Posted on April 23, 2008


this has got to be one of the best scenes in all cinema history.

there’s just so much to love about this scene. adult-Smalls’ familiar voice providing the narrative voiceover. Ham’s hilarious gusto and his cracked “CANNONBALL!” announcement. Wendy Peffercorn. Squints’ look of sheer victory at 4 minutes and 10 seconds. universal themes of desperation, loyalty, and maturation. Smalls exclaiming “oh, man, he’s in deep shit!”

“but everytime we walked by after that, the lifeguard looked down from her tower – right over at Squints – and smiled.”
