I never got a good look at the endearing Smiley. This is probably because the theater was very dark and so was Smiley. However, his voice alone shined enough of this character through to make him more interesting than the majority of American citizens. Loud black people in movie theaters is nothing new. If you go to any horror flick at a theater you can be sure to expect to hear some brothas speaking nonsense. Probably the most common thing one will hear from the “African American” community at the movie theater is loud and obnoxious out of place laughter. Unsurprisingly, Smiley did his fair share of laughing at Friday the 13th that also made me giggle in delight. I will even go as far as saying that Smiley’s commentary during Friday the 13th was as entertaining as the ones John Waters does for his own movies.
3 Spoiled (but not soiled) Degenerate Aryans with "Uncle Tom" and "Goofy Asian"
Friday the 13th featured a group of lame ass contemporary white people that obviously get picked off one by one by the very special ed. Jason Voorhees. There are two new contemporary additions to the group however. One is a goofy Asian and the other is a very racially conscious black Uncle Tom. Like in real life, the white group of friends in Friday the 13th have minority friends as evidence that they aren’t racist. The Uncle Tom in the group constantly says such things to his white friends as “Is it because I’m black?” Naturally, Smiley couldn’t contain his laughter every time Uncle Tom spoke. Smiley also seemed to have a special spot for the goofy Asian, but with Uncle Tom he really let his laughter rip.
Uncle Tom isn’t exactly an illiterate big black buck like most white girls seems to go for nowadays. Due to Uncle Tom’s lack of ladies man talents, he ends up taking a bong hit and then decides to masturbate. At this point in the movie, Smiley sounded like he was going to have a heart attack. But I mean, who can blame him? Uncle Tom and the goofy Asian were really the best characters in Friday the 13th. In fact, I will even go as far as saying that they are both the most interesting characters in any Friday the 13th movies (aside from maybe Corey “Tommy Jarvis” Feldman and Crispin “Jimbo Anderson" Glover’s character in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter).
After watching Friday the 13th, I was separated by the genius that is Smiley’s voice forever. Where is Smiley right now? What is Smiley doing? Does he eat the same food as me? Does he abstain from basketball because he’s gay? I doubt I will ever know the answers to any of these questions. One thing I do know is if I ever decide to watch the remake of Friday the 13th again, my memories of Smiley will be with me.
