    I pretty much suck at being funny, but I do like open air cinema, so can I have a pair of tickets please?

  2. Shane says:

    He’ll keep calling me, he’ll keep calling me until I come over. He’ll make me feel guilty. This is uh… This is ridiculous, ok I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go. What – I’LL GO.

  3. Catherine Egan says:

    Life is more interesting if you are slightly confused…. the cinema outside – i like it

  4. Bngr says:

    hmmm. 4 films that have nothing to do with the mini.

    That selection smacks of the right film “Ferris Buellers Day Off” and a selection of Darragh’s – who may or may not have a man crush on John Cusack – favourite’s.

  5. Yvonne says:

    I need the open air tickets because I’m watching the sky and waiting to see if it happens again…After years of waiting to see pigs fly… I finally saw swine flu…

    Not great but perhaps good enough for just two teeney weeney tickets??

  6. mini cinema – so its tiny, like? i’ll give you a hug if i win.

  7. Pick me and I’ll tell you about the Ferris Bueller Fight Club theory. Oh, and this is funny http://ask.metafilter.com/120479/Crimes-committed-by-Ferris-Bueller-during-his-Day-off

    Why did the blonde crash into the Mini?
    She thought it was a big car far away

  9. ais says:

    pick me! pick me! pick me!

  10. Dave says:


    pick me 🙂 I promise i’ll use my indoor voice

    (even though we’ll be outdoors grrr)

  11. John says:

    Fuck sympathy! I don’t need your fuckin’ sympathy, man, I need my fucking johnson! Oh and two tickets to the Open Air Cinema.

  12. E gan F says:

    I was sad, well disgusted more like, when I saw a big dirty beard hair in my cup of tea – but my day got a whole lot better when I realised it was still attached to me. And outdoor cinema tickets would continue the feel good factor for me, if you don’t mind. Ta.

  13. Julie Dilger says:

    I want them! I’ve no plans for the bank holiday weekend but i get paid on thursday so the open air cinema seems like the perfect way to celebrate my 1st paycheck!

  14. joe loughlin says:

    Q: how do ya get a fat bird into bed?

    A: piece of cake!


  15. Ben says:

    I think i should get picked, cause im great.

    But seriously i can’t do funny on command but i would love to see The Big Lebowski in the open air cinema! And i could tell herself that i had to pay a trolley loada money for it! win win i hear you say!

    (insert random film quote that everyone seems to be doing)

    …oh and vital bit of information, i have taken Friday off work so i can get my groove on. And by groove i mean sexual assault.

  16. brian says:

    Gimme some tickets or I’ll pee on your rug.

  17. sam glacken says:

    I’m all over this like a rash!
    …I’m a major cinema buff!

    “Grosse Fidelity” and “Lebowski’s Day Off” are like practically two of my all time fave flicks, y’know.

  18. mark quinn says:

    I’ve seen each of these a zillion times, but never on the silver screen.

    I know them almost word for word.
    So if you’re looking for someone with a really annoying voice who can provide a live running fan commentary on the night (no matter which film comes out of the hat),
    …then I’m your man!

  19. william says:

    my bank holiday weekend –

    I was fired, mugged, dumped, maybe even orphaned (it was one very crazy weekend), beaten up, and anything else that might win me some sympathy.

    I need a pick-me-up bad man,
    I need outdoor cinema tickets.

  20. eoin casey says:

    gimme a pair, and if I’m ever in a position to be giving away 10 pairs of tickets to another mini-cooper sponsored open air cinema event, I’ll totally sort you out dude.
    That’s a promise.

  21. kev says:

    I have never even been to the cinema before, never mind an open-air one!

    Mother said not until I’m 21.
    Well I just turned 21 recently but with the current economic climate I’m really struggling to get the cash together for a cinema ticket.
    I’m not fussy. I’d gladly go see anything!

    It’s not every day you’ll get the chance to make a dream come for a stranger.
    Do the right thing.

  22. kieran c says:

    heard the one about the magic tractor?

    it went down the road and turned into a lane!

    ba-dum chsshhhh.

  23. Graham says:

    A man was sprawled across three entire seats in a cinema. When the usher came by and noticed this, he whispered to the man, “Sorry sir, but you”re only allowed one seat.”
    The man groaned but didn”t budge. The usher became impatient.
    “Sir,” the usher said, “if you don”t get up from there, I”m going to have to call the manager.”
    Again, the man just groaned, which infuriated the usher who turned and marched briskly back up the aisle in search of his manager. In a few moments, both the usher and the manager returned and stood over the man. Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move him, but with no success. Finally, they summoned the police. The cop surveyed the situation briefly.
    “All right, buddy. What’s your name?”
    “Sam,” the man moaned.
    “Where ya from, Sam?” the cop asked.

    “The balcony.”

  24. richard says:

    surely “The Italian Job” shoulda been in the voting mix with this being for MINI

  25. paul says:

    We went to the cinema recently.
    I went for an aisle seat as I usually do. Just as the feature was about to start a lady from the centre of the row got up and started working her way out.

    “Excuse me, sorry, oops, excuse me, pardon me, gotta hurry, oopsy, excuse me.”
    By the time she got to me I was trying to look around her and I was a little impatient so I said,
    “Couldn’t you have done this a little earlier?”
    “No!!” she said in a loud whisper, “The TURN OFF YOUR CELL PHONE PLEASE message just flashed up on the screen and mine is out in the car.”
    …and she wasn’t joking either.


  26. richie says:

    I have problems, …lot’s of them in fact.

    This latest problem’s a good one though, – the very best kind of problem.
    You see, there’s this girl I like. And I’m hopeful she’s liking me too. But there’s still wooing to be done.
    I gotta take her out, show her a good time y’know.
    So…….. I’m thinking, I’d like to take her somewhere different, somewhere rare, …take her to something so damn fricking cool she’ll have no choice but to put out.
    but funds are low and I’m stumped for ideas…
    I need these bad tickets man!

  27. gordo says:

    A man goes into a cinema with his dog to watch a film. It’s a romantic comedy and when there’s a funny seen the dog starts laughing. A little later on there’s a sad part and suddenly the dog starts crying.

    This goes on throughout the entire film, laughing and crying at all the
    right places. A man sitting a few rows back has witnessed the entire thing and decides to follow the man out.

    In the foyer, he approaches the dog owner and says, “That’s truly amazing!”

    “It certainly is” The dog owner replied, “He hated the book!”
