All through the historical past of cinema, motion pictures have given us a variety of gut-punching, pleasant moments. Citizen Kane launched us to depth of area, in addition to an unforgettable use of the phrase “rosebud.” Rear Window and Psycho shocked us with new horror methods from Hitchcock. Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather welcomed us into a house of Italian-American mobsters, who drew blood as pink as their spaghetti sauce. And now, 80 for Brady has put Sally Field in a sizzling wings competitors with Guy Fieri, the mayor of Flavortown himself.

I’ve all the time questioned what the primary audiences felt once they sat down to observe 2001: A Area Odyssey. Now, I don’t need to surprise. I’ve witnessed an equally fantastical second in cinematic historical past, in a theater, surrounded by individuals laughing till droplets of sweat run down their foreheads—identical to Sally Subject on this scene. Movie research professors ought to be fawning over 80 for Brady, dialing up Paramount to get an unique copy in order that they’ll present their college students this clip of true, audacious cinema.

‘80 for Brady’ Is Truly the Super Bowl of Ridiculous, Embarrassing Fun

That is all gross hyperbole, sure, however I wasn’t anticipating to be as completely floored by Fieri’s bit half in 80 for Brady as I truly was. The Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives host is a greater actor than Tom Brady, that’s for positive. And his two essential scenes—the aforementioned wings competitors, and one wherein Rita Moreno takes an edible and wanders right into a poker recreation, the place she hallucinates that everybody is Fieri—are a hot frisbee of fun.

In case you haven’t heard in regards to the plot of 80 for Brady, it’s fairly easy: 4 aged girls (three are over 80; Subject is adamant about being 75, so she’s not included within the “80 for Brady” crew) who love the Patriots, notably Tom Brady, make a pact to attend the 2017 Tremendous Bowl. Lily Tomlin sells her automotive to get tickets. Jane Fonda brings round 36 wigs. It’s marvelous.

The day earlier than the Tremendous Bowl, the women agree to move over to the “NFL Expertise,” which is principally only a large carnival for all soccer followers. Whereas Maura (Moreno) locations bets on Lou’s (Tomlin) capability to win a soccer toss recreation, and Trish (Fonda) performs a sensual studying of her soccer erotica novel that includes Rob Gronkowski, a ravenous Betty (Subject) sniffs round for some lunch.

Betty finds a meals truck simply exterior the occasion, with fiery flames painted up and down the automobile. She makes an attempt to purchase some BBQ, however she’s advised this meals truck isn’t an area vendor—it’s truly a part of a sizzling wings competitors, and if she desires to eat, she’s going to have to enroll and begin chomping on some wings. Ravenous, Betty obliges. Little does she know she’s about to develop into the subsequent Joey Chestnut.

Fieri is the grasp of ceremonies on the Scorching Ones-like throwdown, which includes a handful of gruff males sitting subsequent to…candy Betty, sporting her “strap on” (a fanny pack slung over her shoulder as an alternative of her waist), whereas begging for some fried rooster. It’s fairly the sight to see. They’re every given a jug of milk, some water, and a barf bag—but when the opponents dare to make use of any of those, they’ll be eradicated.

The opposite guidelines are fairly easy: It’s a must to ingest one chew of every wing, which is dripping in among the spiciest sizzling sauces on the planet. One chew of an array of wings, that’s all. Sounds straightforward, proper?

Nicely, it’s, however just for Betty. Fieri bids adieu to the opposite contestants as they drop out like flies, with Betty nonetheless going robust. What makes it even higher is that Betty isn’t simply taking a chew of every wing—let’s bear in mind, she’s hankering for some juicy fried meals—she’s swallowing each morsel. Fieri reminds her that she doesn’t need to eat the entire wing, only a chew, however Betty cuts him off. She’s hangry.

Naturally, Betty wins the entire rattling factor—and it looks like she’s nonetheless just a little hungry for extra afterwards, too. Because of this, she will get to deliver her three finest mates to Fieri’s VIP space celebrating the win with the Meals Community character. What higher solution to pregame the Tremendous Bowl than to spend a day with Man?

After all, there are penalties to this large win: Betty leaves her strap-on in Fieri’s trailer. It has the tickets in it, so the women can’t get into the Tremendous Bowl. However this all results in the women embarking upon a hunt for Fieri—which, aren’t all of us desperately in search of the Mayor of Flavortown? It’s a metaphor for all times, actually, and one more reason everybody ought to see 80 for Brady, a goofy masterpiece.
