“I’m Too Old For This Sh*t”

Die Huffington Post hat zum 25-jährigen Jubiläum der Lethal Weapon-Filme einen Zusammenschnitt aus einer Vielzahl von Filmen gemacht, in denen festgestellt wird, dass man “zu alt für den Sch…” sei.

“You’re getting too old for this: 25 years ago, on March 6, 1987, “Lethal Weapon” was released. The buddy-cop thriller not only cemented Mel Gibson’s status as a household name after playing good-natured loose-canon (as opposed to now) Martin Riggs, but also created a social phenomenon still relevant to this day: “I’m getting too old for this shit.”

The catchphrase, said numerous times throughout the “Lethal Weapon” series by Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover), has appeared in many movies over the last 25 years, often times in reference to the put-upon police detective himself.” Quelle: moviefone.com
