This is a follow-up from yesterday’s post. Someone has taken that same clip to comment negatively on some Hollywood stars’ affected accents. The comments are funny, especially the one next to Keanu Reeves’ “Dracula” clip. (Click on the headline below to see all the video clips).
And then there’s this compilation. Very entertaining. But I have a soft spot for Nicolas Cage’s “Put the bunny back in the bag” because it reminds me so much of my favorite line in my favorite Coen Brothers’ movie (see 2nd video clip below).
“Son, you got a panty on your head,” from “Raising Arizona”:
- Are there movies or TV shows you’ve enjoyed in which accents or dialects play a big role (“Amachan” for example). Write about whether or not you think the accents are done skillfully. Try to find some YouTube clips if you can.
- Do you have a regional accent? Did you try to change it when you moved to Tokyo?
