Top Secret movie ”cow/bull scenes”

Top Secret is a relatively unknown comedy film made in 1984.  It stars Val Kilmer in his first feature role.  In my humble opinion it is one of the funniest movies I have ever watched.  The film was made by the ZAZ trio,  David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker.  These fellows made Airplane and the Naked Gun series. 

The humour in Top Secret is very much the same as in those other movies.  Cornball jokes, misinterpretation amongst characters and cockamamie situations.  But there is one scene in Top Secret that should go down as one of the greatest humour sequences in film.  The “Cow Scene.”

 

 

A Real Battle of the Planet of the Apes

'Monkey Menace' Spawns Massive Protest

Wild monkeys have overrun a region of India and frustrated residents are taking to the streets demanding that the government put an end to the simian invasion.

Once quiet communities have been transformed into veritable warzones worthy of the Planet of the Apes films due to mobs of monkeys that are becoming increasingly brazen in their quest for food and territory.

The Indian city of Almora and an astounding 24 surrounding villages have been enveloped by the monkey menace in recent weeks, leading to mass protests about the problem.

“Monkeys have made our lives hell,” one exasperated protestor told the Hindustan Times, claiming that people cannot leave anything of value outside their home lest it be taken by the sticky-fingered simians.

Irate residents also say that their houses are being swarmed by the creatures, children are afraid to walk down the street alone, and people are staying inside their homes during the daytime to avoid running into the marauding monkeys.

While some may suspect that the furor over the monkeys is overblown, the stunning number of alleged attacks by the creatures suggest that is far from the case.

Organizers of the protest alleged that an area hospital has been treating a staggering ten people per day for monkey bites and that a similar number of daily incidents simply go unreported.

And so, with nowhere else to turn, over two hundred residents have committed to a two-week-long protest that they say will amplify into a hunger strike if the Indian government does not help them stop the monkeys.

Fortunately, there may be an unlikely solution in sight as the area has seen a recent uptick in leopard attacks which wildlife officials are also being asked to thwart.

Should the leopards set their sights on the simian surplus, the Almora area could finally find themselves free from their nightmare, although they’d eventually have to find a way to fend off the ferocious felines once they’re done feasting on monkeys.

Hercules in New York – Arnold vs the Bear Fight

Hercules in New York is a 1970 low-budget fantasy comedy film. It is notable for being the first feature film to star (a then-unknown) Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was about 22 years old when the film was produced. It is further notable for being one of the films that Schwarzenegger admits regretting having appeared in.

In the scene a bear escapes from the Central Park zoo. Arnie confronts the bear and the fight begins. They grapple for a while then Hercules body slams the bear. After he has the bear down Herc starts punching the furry brute and then chokes it into submission.
