How Dr. Strangelove Ruined a Birthday Party

Picture the scene: Connor Ratliff is turning 13. He wants to throw a birthday party. Furthermore, the budding funnyman wants it to be a smash, and so he plans to show “the funniest movie of all time.” He’s never seen it, but no matter, because it’s been described as “the funniest movie of all time.” It was not "the funniest movie of all time." In this latest installment of Vulture and UCB's "Pop Culture Memory Lane" animated series, the devoted fan tells what happened when he popped in the videocassette for a Stanley Kubrick classic.
