May 15, 2014 // Franchising.com // You can't always go it alone. Sometimes you need a buddy at your side to pick you up when you fall and keep you grounded when you get too full of yourself. A pal, a sidekick, a partner. A Robin to your Batman.
This month, 22 Jump Street reunites partners Jenko and Schmidt on the big screen. That inspired the Alamo Drafthouse and Birth.Movies.Death., the magazine centered on the monthly programming theme at Alamo Drafthouse theaters, to examine some of our favorite on-screen dynamic duos. Well, except for THE Dynamic Duo. That was maybe a bit too on the nose for us.
Alamo Drafthouse has planned a month-long salute to dynamic duos with screenings of Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, My Little Chickadee, Tommy Boyand more!
In Birth.Movies.Death., you can read about the special love shared by Butch and Sundance. You can join an argument about whether or not E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is actually a buddy movie. You can look back at the unique pairing of Mae West and W.C. Fields in My Little Chickadee. Or perhaps you want to go in-depth into the father/son dynamics of Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade. You might also visit the Circle K, because we're spending some time analyzing the friendship of Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted "Theodore" Logan.
