So I only turn 21 next month, so I’ve got probably another decade or longer before I can use the iconic phrase “I’m too old for this shit.” It would just be ridiculous, yet hilarious funny for me to use that in conversation. I suppose if the context is right and someone is acting extremely immature, then of course it would be perfect to whip out that catchphrase.
But usually whenever that line is used in movies, especially in Lethal Weapon, it’s always said by someone of a “certain age.” And usually people of a certain age always often complain when faced with a high level of foolishness, so it’s fitting that the folks over HuffPost Entertainment made a mash up video of all the times in movies when people have said “I’m too old for this shit.”
The video is awesomesauce! Mainly because I’ve seen a lot of the movies or at least the clips in which the person is using that iconic statement to explain why they don’t want to do something. It’s just such a timeless catchphrase, but it’s still the best when Danny Glover says “I’m too old for this shit.”
