This is the movie about which Bruce always says "So you take a script by the screenwriter of Moonstruck, based on a novel by the guy who wrote Jurassic Park - you take leads who were in Ghostbusters and Hunt for Red October, and the director from Arachnophobia - you've got a hit, right? Wrong - you've got "Congo."

Hey, I just saw him! Completely by accident, too. I was flipping channels and there he was. I admit, if I hadn't read Bruce's book where he talks about the fun he had in Costa Rica (?) during the filming, I would have thought they were on a set. And kind of a cheap-looking set, as well.
But hey, he looked good, he got all wet ( :leech: ), he got to eat one more piece of chocolate before he died, and he managed one good scream. Plus it was all over about 5 minutes into the movie. (Unlike some of the excruciating waits for Bruce to show up in other bad movies of his.) So as a Bruce bit-part, it wasn't too bad! :laugh:

Also.....

"The Day the Earth Stood Still" airs on AMC tonight just after midnight at 12:15 AM. Why is this relevant? :laugh: it's where "Klaatu varada ...necktie...nickel..." comes from!

"Congo" wasn't a bad movie. It was just an unsucessful one. I enjoyed it.

Don't own the DvD just yet....

Dang, and I didn't surf to that channel until 10 minutes after the hour, so I missed Bruce. *Pout.* Even worse, I was just in time to see Joe Don Baker!
But at least it reminded me of the passage in Bruce's book where he talks about what a great time he had in Costa Rica, body-surfing and whatnot, while the "big name" actors sweated in the jungle.
Also, it made me wish that Bruce and Tim Curry could have had some scenes together. That would be good. Although they were both in McHale's Navy, weren't they? Did they have any scenes together in that?

Surely they did, since Curry was the main villain, and so McHale's men must have been face to face with him at some point. Althpough I doubt he and Bruce spoke directly to each other.

I'm not sure where I read it - so it may have been Bruce's book - but he spoke highly of the boots his character wore in "Congo," and so kept them after shooting was done (although they made him buy them.) He still wears them - not sure if it's the same pair, or just the same brand, but he says they are just the best for rugged outdoor wear.
