Barrymore mentions love for coasters on Late Show

Saturday, September 11, 2004 10:40 AM
Just in case you didn't catch it, Drew Barrymore was one of David Letterman's guests Friday night on The Late Show. Dave asked her about what she and her musician boyfriend do for fun, since they don't see a lot of each other while he is touring with his band.

So Drew said that they just went to an amusement park together, to ride a new roller coaster. (No mention of the park or the coaster). "But," she continued, "it didn't pack the punch I was hoping for. And since I love roller coasters, we jumped in the car and drove to Magic Mountain and rode the craziest, gnarliest roller coasters all day long."

I wonder what that "new" coaster was that didn't pack the punch for her.

I guess she hasn't been on Dragster yet. ;-)

All kidding aside, I am not surprised. I also saw an interview one time where Courtney Cox said that her and hubby David "travel all over the country" to ride roller coasters.

Having ridden USH's Mummy I bet she's referring to it. What a total waste of track.

Hey Moosh, your link isn't working on your calendar site.

Is Mummy really that bad?

Saturday, September 11, 2004 2:16 PM're right. That's odd, it's set-up correctly in my signature. The URL is

And yes, I thought Mummy was THAT BAD! Black light lit cardboard mummies in the coaster section, bad or non-working special was plain awful.

I do hear the Florida version is MUCH better.

LOL Tina, David Arquette was the "lead David" in the battle against Goliath when SFMM opened the new coaster (which I guess is one of those that I *get* that most "enthusiasts" don't)...I'd give anything to ride that sucker without the brakes grabbing SO darn hard.

Of course, I could just go to SFoT for Titan and get the extra helix...:)

jp, apparently the differences between the two versions of RotM play fairly heavily in favor of USF's ride. ;)

I thought Drew Barrymore was single again? I could go for some ERT with her...;) Hoping Jill doesn't read this thread, if she didn't KNOW chicks RULE!

Yeah, I remember seeing that segment a few years back with the "Davids".

As far as Drew, I guess Tom Green wasn't *intense* enough for her. lol.

I just think that there is something wrong about naming a girl Drew....

lata, jeremy

--who really doesnt think DB is hot at all

Rollergator, I'm with you. I thought DB was single again too. I've always thought she was hot and I could go for the exclusive ERT with her as well.

I am not a HUGE fan but I have always admired Drew. I mean, she has come a long way and now runs her own production company.

She's very beautiful and very talented. I mean, who could NOT love "Wedding Singer" and "Boys On The Side?"

Ok, the latter being a total chick flick. lol.

2hostyl: Would Drew with an extra order of bootay meat suffice? ;)

Tina: You loved 'Wedding Singer?' That's right--you don't have kids who howl laughing as you think, Wait, That part wasn't funny...

Here's "The Wedding Singer" summed up:

"Hey guys, check out this... RUBIK'S CUBE!!!"
"Hey, look at this... I'm wearing LEG WARMERS!!!"
"You know who rocks? VAN HALEN!!!"

It's like they tried to mention every single fad and icon of the 80s.

And the movie sucks anyway... I hate movies where all the characters' problems would be solved if they would just talk to each other instead of running away and assuming the worst.

/end rant

Isn't Ethel Barrymore a little old to be riding roller coasters? ;)

You pedophiles are all lusting after the little girl from ET? Next thing you know I'll be hearing people lusting after the twins who played the baby on Full House. ;)

Jim, you're timing and common thought patterns are scaring me. *** Edited 9/13/2004 7:04:21 PM UTC by boblogone***

Come on now, the "Wedding Singer" was hilarious. The Billy Idol thing at the end was just awesome! Like..........gnarly dude! (sarcasm).


Ok, so I am an "80's" child........;-)

Mike, the "twins" from Full House are like 18 or 19 now? Scary. lol.

And with even less talent per pound than before....

The Wedding Singer is one of Sandler's better movies along with Happy Gilmore. Sure, the plot was rather weak... but how many comedies have a real good plot?

The movie brings attention to every 80's fad and icon but that's what it's supposed to do... hence the reason it was set IN THE 80's! Just like That 70's Show falls back on just about every single thing that people relate to that era- drugs, bell-bottoms, fondue...

Luckily I barely remember the 70's as I was just a young'

"That 70's Show" is my favorite. They did have "That 80's Show" for a while but it got cancelled. :-(

Adam Sandler was the funniest in "Airheads".

That 80's Show lasted what... 3 weeks? I never saw it but I heard it was pretty dreadful. That 70's Show, on the other hand, is pretty good. Not the best sitcom ever but far from the worst. Red is one of the most hilarious characters on TV today.

a) At least That 70s Show has a smokin' redhead that's easy on the eyes -- though if I've been reading correctly, she apparently dyed it blonde for the 7th season...a true travesty.

b) I can't believe nobody else caught that. 'Playa, that was cold. ;)
