The movie of the week on iTunes is Boston classic, Good Will Hunting. If you have not seen this movie, shame on you, the movie has been out for 15 years, download/buy it from iTunes for only $7.99, and celebrate some cinematic excellence.
Things to do after watching Good Will Hunting with your friends:
Reenact this scene:
Chuckie: So this is a Harvard bar, huh? I thought there’d be equations and shit on the wall.
Check out that bar at the L Street Tavern in South Boston.
Reenact this scene:
Will: Do you like apples?
Will: Well, I got her number. How do you like them apples?
Well unless you want to head up to Toronto you can’t… due to the budget most of the movie was actually filmed in Toronto instead of Boston. Grab your passport, head north to Toronto and pop into the Upfront Bar and Grill.
My favorite interaction in the movie is between Will Hunting (Matt Damon) and Sean Maguire (Robin Williams)…check out the video below and you too can be at Game 6 1975:
Will: So, when did you know, like, that she was the one for you?
Sean: October 21st, 1975.
Will: Jesus Christ. You know the fuckin’ date?
Sean: Oh yeah. ‘Cause it was Game 6 of the World Series. Biggest game in Red Sox history.
Will: Yeah, sure.
Sean: My friends and I had, you know, slept out on the sidewalk all night to get tickets.
Will: You got tickets?
Sean: Yep. Day of the game. I was sittin’ in a bar, waitin’ for the game to start, and in walks this girl. Oh, it was an amazing game, though. You know, bottom of the eighth, Carbo ties it up at 6-6. It went to twelve. Bottom of the twelfth, in stepped Carlton Fisk. Old Pudge. Steps up to the plate, you know, and he’s got that weird stance.
Will: Yeah, yeah.
Sean: And BAM! He clocks it. High fly ball down the left field line! Thirty-five thousand people, on their feet, yellin’ at the ball, but that’s not because of Fisk. He’s wavin’ at the ball like a madman.
Will: Yeah, I’ve seen…
Sean: He’s going, “Get over! Get over! Get OVER!” And then it HITS the foul pole. OH, he goes apeshit, and 35,000 fans, you know, they charge the field, you know?
Will: Yeah, and he’s fuckin’ bowlin’ police out of the way!
Sean: Goin’, “God! Get out of the way! Get ’em away!” Banging people…
Will: I can’t fuckin’ believe you had tickets to that fuckin’ game!
Will: Did you rush the field?
Sean: [surprised at the question] No, I didn’t rush the fuckin’ field; I wasn’t there.
Sean: No – I was in a bar havin’ a drink with my future wife.
Will: You missed Pudge Fisk’s home run?
Sean: Oh, yeah.
Will: To have a fuckin’ drink with some lady you never met?
Sean: Yeah, but you shoulda seen her; she was a stunner.
