We did it! Not only did we make it through 2019 in one piece (more or less), but we’ve officially made it through two decades of the 21st Century.
Which means that we were all 20 years younger when (for example) the first Bluetooth device became available, mad cow disease was a thing, and Mission Impossible 2 was the highest grossing movie.
So it’s only natural that we’d be feeling a little nostalgic right about now.
Instead of listing our resolutions for 2020 (a whole new decade is just too much to handle) or making a vision board, or shopping all those sweet after-Christmas sales, we thought we’d, you know, celebrate.
With this totally random, nowhere-near-complete collection of feelgood / celebration scenes from movies that came out before the year 2000.
We hope they leave you feeling as happy as these Ewoks…
The dark side has been defeated (for now, welp) and our heroes can finally relax and party with the Ewoks—who seem super fun to party with, btw. Some people prefer the remastered version that was released in the early 2000s, because it’s got that montage of every planet in the galaxy celebrating their a** off—but if you were a kid in the 80s, nothing brings the nostalgia like this grainy film and Sesame Street ripoff song.
(Also, fun fact: the year Return of the Jedi came out is the same year Adam Driver—a.k.a. Kylo Ren—was born. Hi! We old.)
This party has everything. A lady’s hat catches on fire, only to be doused by a spilled drink before anyone notices. A woman laughs at herself in the mirror, then starts crying for no reason (she’s drunk, that’s the reason). People make out. The cops come. And—tiiiimberrr!
Dude got the whole damn city of Chicago to twist & shout! Even the dorky dad, who keeps narrowly missing his truant son, and even the window washer, who’s twisting in his harness like 40 stories high. UNSAFE!
Okay, it’s not from a movie, but it’s because of a movie, and according to the rules we’ve just made up, that counts.
As the music swells to cut him off, Cuba Gooding Jr. gets more and more emotional, laughing and crying and thanking people and pointing to the audience, until everyone in the audience stands up and cheers. It’s sweet.
Because nobody puts Baby in a corner.
Uh-oh, Peewee’s in trouble, y’all! All the bikers are super mad at him until he makes this “last request” and wins them over by dancing in platform shoes and breaking all the glassware. Now they’re BFFs. No big deal.
This is a more intimate entry on our list, because it’s not really about the party, it’s about these two characters and everything they’ve been through to get to this point. But it still brings all the feels, and that’s what we’re here for.
The best thing about this celebration is that the Indians don’t win the World Series in Major League—they just beat their arch nemeses, the Yankees. You gotta take what you can get in this town.
There’s an entire rabbit warren of sports-related celebrations we aren’t going to explore in this post… but some people (cough cough) are from Cleveland, so this is the one that made the cut.
LET’S DANCE!!!!!!!!!!!! And have glitter rain down upon us! And wear ruffly tuxes! And get in fights!

Let’s get right into it. There are a lot of… unforeseen side effects of a global health crisis.
Like, when you’re the CFO of a medium-sized startup company, but then you have to work from home, and also teach 2nd grade. Or when the catering manager of a large grocery store chain suddenly becomes a first responder, because grocery stores are CRAZY TOWN right now.
There’s a lot going on right now, and much of it is pretty grim. As usual, Seymour Butz is here to provide a bit of levity in an otherwise serious time.
