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.
