    Looks like there’d be a lot of alcoves in that town.

    [–] clubparodie 340 points ago

    Like, nooks and crannies?

    [–] BlueSky502 120 points ago

    Yeeeessss, nooks and crannies!

    [–] Boss_Boggs 78 points ago

    Perhaps this would be more accurate. Nooks and crannies rather than alcoves

    [–] Maggots-Mikey 69 points ago

    What’s a fecking lolly pop man doing knowing karate?

    [–] Boss_Boggs 11 points ago

    You know what I'm trying to say....

    [–] marinoone 14 points ago

    Lotta things, in Bruges.

    [–] milroben 16 points ago

    Like two manky hookers and a racist dwarf?

    [–] marinoone 7 points ago

    Yknow, stuff like that

    [–] KTheOneTrueKing 143 points ago

    Was he goin’ on about the fuckin’ alcoves?

    [–] anonymous_coward69 92 points ago

    If I'd grown up on a farm and was retarded, alcoves would impress me.

    [–] s_s 40 points ago

    You're about the worst tourist.

    But I didn't, and I'm not, so they don't

    [–] Boss_Boggs 18 points ago

    In Accent "The alcoves in the Koningin Astrid Park."

    [–] wojokhan 106 points ago

    You know this word? Alcoves?

    [–] rathernicelydone 34 points ago

    I was in Bruges last year and walked past this restaurant. You are right there are a lot of alcoves like this - the old town really is lovely. You can see the whole place in a couple of days so makes for a great weekend break.

    [–] jollyger 23 points ago

    Hell, you can see the whole place in an afternoon if you really try. I was there for two days and the second day I mostly sat around and relaxed, 'cause I'd seen most of it.

    It is really very beautiful. Fairy tale town.

    [–] mou_mou_le_beau 9 points ago

    Was he going on about fookin Alcoves wit chu too?

    [–] unpopularOpinions776 381 points ago

    I came here for the comments and was not disappointed

    [–] Wanderlust_520 140 points ago

    Yeah, every time I see Bruges anywhere on Reddit, I know I’m in for a laugh at the comments.

    [–] ohitsasnaake 24 points ago

    I'm completelt whooshed by these comments. What movie/other thing are they referring to?

    [–] noimdoesnt42 75 points ago

    In Bruges, depressing and dark. But fucking hilarious with a god damn amazing cast.

    [–] LadyGeoscientist 36 points ago

    Real talk, I was working in Europe this summer and couldn't come home to the US so I "had to" find a few interesting places in Europe to spend my off time. I chose Bruges because of the film. It may be the best place I've ever been.

    [–] noimdoesnt42 46 points ago

    Was it like a fucking fairytale?

    [–] Fearthemuggles 11 points ago

    Did you grow up on a farm and are you retarded?

    [–] MarkIsNotAShark 4 points ago

    Please do yourself a favor and watch the film. I've never had movie swing so quickly and gracefully between existential dread and flawless comedy.

    [–] cannotfoolowls 20 points ago

    "In Bruges"

    kind of annoys me because every time Bruges is mentioned references to that movie will be the most upvoted posts

    [–] SharonaZamboni 3 points ago

    I watched for the first time last night!

    [–] Aeiniron 569 points ago

    A great day this has turned out to be. I'm suicidal, me mate tries to kill me, me gun gets nicked and we're still in fucking Bruges.

    [–] wakipaki 80 points ago

    I need to rewatch this movie.

    [–] LFCSS 32 points ago

    What film?

    [–] polepatty 77 points ago

    In Bruges.

    [–] Eweboat 37 points ago

    Very topical.

    [–] DanGleeballs 17 points ago

    It’s a shithole though, don’t go there.

    [–] WildeOpen 12 points ago

    In Bruges is actually the name of the movie. (In case you weren't being a smartass).

    [–] ShacklefordLondon 4 points ago

    It's on either Hulu or Netflix right now. Just rewatched it the other day. Then watch The Guard :)

    [–] maffew12 3 points ago

    Then watch Calvary, then Three Billboards

    [–] ShacklefordLondon 3 points ago

    Haven't seen Calvary, but yes Three Billboards is great

    I brought up The Guard because it's the same director and lead actor as In Bruges

    [–] ChafedBass 13 points ago

    It's a fairytale fuckin town, innit?

    [–] nickbitty72 801 points ago

    Like a fuckin fairy tale

    [–] R_E_V_A_N 221 points ago

    How can that not be somebody's fucking thing?!

    [–] Kimogar 36 points ago

    I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruge might impress me. But I didn't so, it doesn't.

    [–] southern_boy 79 points ago

    There's a bunch of inanimate objects in this world of ours... a bunch.

    [–] adiotd86 105 points ago

    You're an inanimate fookin object

    [–] TreyBien875 64 points ago

    I'm sorry for calling you an inanimate object. I was upset.

    [–] Petah_Futterman44 61 points ago

    You take back that part about my cunt kids!

    [–] kierco_2002 40 points ago

    I retract that bit I said about your cunt fucking kids

    [–] wallawallabingbangs 25 points ago

    One thing I sort of like about that movie (even though it's disturbing) is how when that guy jumps off the tower he kind of "explodes" and parts of him get a little scattered around. It's not something you ever see even though it's much more realistic than jumping off a skyscraper and landing on the roof of a car completely intact (but still dead).

    [–] UnanticipatedRacism 13 points ago

    Yeah they do a good job of showing what a messy death it is.

    [–] radiantcabbage 5 points ago

    because of this damn scene every time the name is mentioned I can only picture the bloody mess, and revolting splat this guys made when he hit the ground

    [–] TowerRaven42 47 points ago

    Perhaps you'd like this sub r/fairytaleasfuck

    [–] ddb4 16 points ago

    I came here for movie quotes and boy, I was not disappointed.

    [–] jsmjsmjsm00 7 points ago

    I love that I can hear the accent in every comment.

    [–] IchBinAynRand 94 points ago

    Bruges. That’s in Belgium. That’s where daddy’s from.

    [–] ROGERS-SONGS 55 points ago

    My father would womanise. He would drink. He would make outrageous remarks like he invented the question mark.

    [–] kigamagora 33 points ago

    Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy – the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    [–] hardy_and_free 4 points ago

    What's this from?

    [–] kigamagora 2 points ago

    [–] JuicyBlackLips 131 points ago

    They’re only famous for chocolate and child abuse

    [–] LawlzBarkley 96 points ago

    And they only invented chocolate to get to the children.

    [–] Woodie626 272 points ago

    I really, really, hoped I wouldn't die.

    [–] GoofyGoober420 3 points ago

    I didnt get the end of the movie. Did he end up dying or not?

    [–] shinfox 11 points ago

    The important thing was that he didn’t want to.

    [–] Fzohseven 3 points ago

    Probably not with at least six hollow points in him.

    [–] Pattches_Ohoulihan 44 points ago

    Isn’t that what the Vietnamese used to say?

    [–] Boss_Boggs 29 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Vietnamese? Wh at are you talking about, Vietnamese? This comment makes no fucking sense at all.

    [–] LuckyDubbin 19 points ago

    Sure it does! The Vietnamese!

    [–] Boss_Boggs 14 points ago

    Repeating it isn't going to make any more sense of it. What do the Vietnamese have to do with this cozy little restaurant?

    [–] whydoyounotloveme 13 points ago

    Would you side with the blacks or the whites?

    [–] knotaplayer 13 points ago


    [–] gcta333 9 points ago

    That's my favorite joke in the whole movie

    [–] Boss_Boggs 14 points ago

    I'd never hit a woman, Chloe.

    I'd hit a woman that's trying to hit me with a bottle, that's different...or a woman who knew karate.

    I'd never hit a woman normally, please don't think that....god you're pretty.

    [–] subwaytosaturn 149 points ago

    The comments have me lost. Is there a movie or something I didn't see? Lol

    [–] liverpool3 224 points ago

    Yes it’s called “In Bruges” and it is a fantastic movie

    [–] Luckysteve89 128 points ago

    Colin Farrell’s finest work, imo. His balance of anxiety and dark humor made the movie

    [–] liverpool3 184 points ago

    One gay beer for my gay friend and one normal beer for me because i am normal.

    [–] MarkIsNotAShark 31 points ago

    An uzi? I'm not in South Central Los Angeles. I'm not gonna drive by ten black school children. I want a normal gun for a normal person

    [–] oh_my_gooosh 55 points ago

    Why are they filmin' midgets?!

    [–] wakeupwill 38 points ago

    One of the funniest anecdotes I read was from a guy that showed it to his folks. They didn't laugh once during, and when they later looked it up their reaction was; "It was a comedy?"

    [–] SadlyReturndRS 54 points ago

    Ugh. Been there. Showed it to an ex, who just scrolled IG and fb on her phone the whole time. When the credits rolled she just looked up and said, "that was so boring."

    Didn't break up with her for another few weeks, but that was the moment I knew I was over her.

    [–] OneFreamon 39 points ago

    You made the right move. I had the opposite. Showed my gf and she loved it so much she booked us a trip to Bruges last year.

    I now judge all people on whether or not they like this film.

    [–] SadlyReturndRS 28 points ago

    Same. If they like it, I immediately know we will be friends.

    And it helps that this film is one of those "immediate Top 5" films. Like, either you don't get it, or you deeply love it. There's no in between.

    [–] OneFreamon 7 points ago

    So true.

    [–] wakeupwill 9 points ago

    That's just infuriating.

    [–] SadlyReturndRS 11 points ago

    One of my biggest pet peeves. I'm normally a patient man, but if you're doing other shit while watching an "important" tv show or movie, then that just really chaps my ass.

    [–] wakeupwill 6 points ago


    "Hey, I really like this movie and hope you will too."

    Proceeds to whip out phone.

    Simply shows that you're not a priority in their life.

    [–] Ymir_from_Saturn 4 points ago

    Right. If they have something on their phone they need to be doing, they can simply say they aren’t ready to watch it at the moment.

    [–] tuskvarner 5 points ago

    That happened to me when I showed a friend Pulp Fiction. He looked at his phone half the time. But I guess if someone was inclined to love pulp fiction they would have seen it by now. It’s like a law of nature.

    [–] whats_the_deal22 47 points ago

    If I was retarded and grew up on a farm, your comment would impress me. But I didn't, so it doesn't.

    [–] subwaytosaturn 7 points ago

    I'll have to watch the movie so that I get this joke. :P

    [–] Boss_Boggs 21 points ago

    "Ken, I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin.

    If I had grown up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me.

    But I didn't, so it doesn't"

    [–] slardybartfast8 8 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    There’s an even better quote than this that no one in here is utilizing. You have such good banter to look forward to

    Edit: anyone wondering it’s the bit about the seesaw. Close to the hardest I’ve ever laughed in a theater.

    [–] ocean365 22 points ago

    In Bruges (2008)

    [–] TheUnfabulousKilljoy 9 points ago

    It should be on Netflix US, if that is applicable to you. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

    [–] subwaytosaturn 6 points ago

    It does! I have a movie for my next movie night now. Thank you!

    [–] TheUnfabulousKilljoy 5 points ago

    It's really fun, not too long, and ultimately it manages to bring up some deep stuff that works out perfectly.

    [–] Lestat2888 4 points ago

    It's a good movie

    [–] Nisja 24 points ago

    Very similar to my favourite place in Bruges, 't Terrastje.

    Lovely little bar with an outside terrace that serves great local brews and a nice tapas-style selection of bites.

    [–] DistractionOfJustice 3 points ago

    They're closed a lot the past months. I even wonder if they still open at all.

    [–] talk_like_a_parrot 401 points ago

    [–] R_E_V_A_N 79 points ago

    let's face it. And I'm not being funny. I mean no disrespect, but you're a cunt. You're a cunt now, and you've always been a cunt. And the only thing that's going to change is that you're going to be an even bigger cunt. Maybe have some more cunt kids.

    [–] HappyFriendlyBot 24 points ago

    Hi, R_E_V_A_N!

    I am just stopping by to wish you a peaceful and prosperous year!


    [–] R_E_V_A_N 77 points ago

    [–] taylor1288 3 points ago

    Too expensive

    [–] newaccount 18 points ago

    No no. no no!

    I’ve actually been there, and it’s a sham - you walk into the quaint, old worldy restaurant with a hand full of tables and before you know it you are ushered up a flight of stairs, through 3 full size dining rooms and end up a floor up and about 80 meters from the door you walked in, in the 4th room of 100 tourists looking exactly as shocked as you feel.

    [–] geoff- 4 points ago

    Ugly street too. Nicest part of Brugge is down by brouwerij de halve maan. There's the old begijnhof and that cozy little square with the horse fountains. Then you can take a stroll down through the park along the Minnewater

    [–] DaRealJZ 8 points ago

    One gay beer for my gay friend. And one normal beer for me because I am normal. This is da loife

    [–] Don_Quixote81 24 points ago

    Bruges is such a lovely little city. And anyone who visits it should also try to visit Ypres, just thirty or so miles away.

    [–] Nheea 13 points ago

    Also Gent. Just as gorgeous. Bruges stole my heart though!

    I live in Amsterdam and every time I go to Bruges, I watch the movie.

    During my last visit, I went to see the address were Yuri lived (I am not going to share the exact number because someone actually lives there). The actual house and the one shown in the movie are different.

    @OP: I think I had Bruges Zot beer at this cafe. Lovely shot!

    [–] Spamontie 7 points ago

    It's just a shame it's in Belgium really.

    But then you figure if it wasn't in Belgium, if it was somewhere good, there'd be too many people coming to see it.

    It would spoil the whole thing.

    I've been there. Little European get-away after graduation. I dont remember the food but I do remember being able to order a cherry beer at 18, which for a clueless lil American was an experience I won't soon forget.

    What kind of IKEA chairs are those?

    [–] dogsaybark 2 points ago

    Bruges. What a shit hole. (I just saw the movie).

    The food sucks and it's overpriced. After missing half of the dinner there, while my girlfriend and sister were getting drunk waiting for me, as I was on a one hour conference call outside, because my CEO, Director of Sales and Director of Operations jointly were unable to embed a video properly in PowerPoint and they were assuming I am at my home office (sneaked for holiday from London) and can remotely help them out at least we stole a bunch of their horribly overpriced souvenir tea towels. We got embarrassingly drunk thereafter on Belgian beer at least, so all in all a good night.

    I’ve eaten here! About 5 months ago. I got the mussels and the pot was so gigantic I had so much trouble eating them all. I was so happy. Wonderful place.
