Yet another Mike Myers classic.
There’s just something wonderful about the opening sequence, with the old man shoes, the shuffle/run down the street, the hunch, and the slowing down to catch his breath. Without saying a word in that opening, you know exactly who he is. In fact, I’d say that what really sells the character is the physicality of it – the way Myers holds his hands, the tilt of the head, the quick step before leaves a room. Chris Farley’s cameo as Drinking Buddy also plays on Farley’s amazing ability to be light on his feet.
And how can you have a discussion of Middle-Aged Man without mentioning his gut…which he’s working on. He’s working on it!
