So, I’m watching TV the other day. Die Hard 2. I can feel brain cells rotting away as I watch but what the hell; it’s my day off.
Besides … I kinda enjoy the Die Hard movies. Things blow up in them. That’s cool.
But this is on USA or FX or one of those other quasi-cable channels where they still have to bleep out all the naughties. Most of the time it’s innocuous; sometimes it gets downright funny (as in the time they showed “Fargo” and every time Steve Buscemi said the word “fucking” they replaced it with “frozen.” Gave a whole new level of meaning to the film.)
My favorite line from Die Hard 2 (and from the first one as well) is at the end when Bruce Willis is amazingly setting a plane on fire with a cigarette lighter (don’t try this at home, kids) and utters the immortal lines “Yippe Kai yay, Mother Fucker!”
Except he didn’t. He said “Yippe Kai yay, Mister Falcon!”
WHO THE HELL IS MISTER FALCON???
Gah damn … I don’t really mind them replacing naughty words like that. God knows … we have to think of the children. But GEEZ … at least either bleep it out completely or have it at least have something to do with the actual PLOT!
Ruined the whole movie for me.
I want my eight dollars back.
