Josh Cooley's book Movies R Fun: A Collection of Cinematic Classics for the Pre-(Film) School Cinephile takes iconic and cult (mostly) R-rated movie scenes as inspiration for artwork styled after children's storybooks. He parodies the most bone-chilling or chest-beating or sexy clips from contemporary classics ranging from Alien to Apocalypse Now to The Shining, and includes them as 48 snapshots in a hardcover collection. Cooley has also released individual scenes as 8-1/2" x 11" and 13" x 19" prints, many available as limited, hand-signed editions through his Website ($25 to $50).

Some choice Movies R Fun selections:

  • From Terminator: "Your clothes...give them to me now," said the Terminator.
  • From Fight Club: "I want you to hit me," said Tyler Durden, "as hard as you can.
  • From Jaws: "You're gonna need a bigger boat," suggested Chief Brody.
  • From The Godfather II: "I'm smart!" explained Fredo. "Not like everybody says...like dumb!...I'm smart!"

As a fan of both of their work, I recommend that Cooley get together with Antoinette Bergin to write and illustrate a sequel to her book, Bedtime Stories for Children You Hate. They can call it Bedtime Stories for Children You Hate...A Lot.
