A Brief History of Cheese Day

For those of you who have never known the pleasure of Cheese Day, I present this brief synopsis of Cheese Movies past, which my friends and I have celebrated while eating cheese on our self-proclaimed holiday, which is observed tomorrow, November 18th.

Cheese Day the First — SpaceCamp

Pretty much started us off on the right note, I think.

Cheese Day, Too — Real Genius

A controversial choice, as it’s not so much cheesy as, um, not cheesy, but we enjoyed it anyway.

Cheese Day III — The Karate Kid

That rare example of a film both good and cheesy.

Cheese Day IV — Short Circuit

You can’t spell cheese without a sassy robot. We learned that with our first Cheese Day Movie (and repeated it later).

Cheese Day V — Doc Savage: Man of Bronze

Easily the cheesiest movie we’ve ever screened. Criminally unavailable on DVD.

Cheese Day V, Part Two — The Goonies

Best. Cheese Day Movie. Ever.

Cheese Day VII — The Last Dragon

A black shogun named Sho’ Nuff. Genius.

Cheese Day VIII — Rocky IV

“If I can change, you can change, and they can change, and that guy over there can change, and he she or it can change…” Plus, another sassy robot.

Cheese Day IX — Conan the Barbarian

Another controversial choice, though I maintain that part with the chick coming back from the dead to help Arnie is cheesy as hell.

Cheese Day X — Xanadu

The second cheesiest Cheese Day Movie. That says more about Doc Savage than about Xanadu.

Cheese Day XI — Footloose

Dude, that was totally Chris Penn! And Sarah Jessica Parker!

Cheese Day XII — Mannequin

This year’s Cheese Day Movie. I’m sure it won’t disappoint. It’s Mannequin.

    Dave, I hate to correct you on your own blog, but there was no Chesse Day VI. It was officially called Cheese Day V, Part II.

  2. Dude, you’re right! Good call.

  3. Dr. Wife says:

    Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese!!!!!!!!!! :-)

  4. Kevin says:

    I really think Last Dragon should be at the top of that heap. Because I was there for it.

    Oh and Xanadu definity added another element to the cheeseday iconography: Halo-backlighting.

    Sizzle a cheese sandwitch for me.
