Let me start out saying that I am a huge Jimmy Buffett fan. I not quite a full-blown parrot-head but leaning that way. I have seen him in concert at least six times and own his complete catalog, even the before the beach stuff. Jimmy Buffett’s music helped me survive three long cold winters in Germany. I would walk around in the snow at night while on guard duty singing “Come Monday” or “He Went to Paris.” This kept my mind focused on the warmer part of life and living the coastal lifestyle. When I returned from Germany, I attended the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg like Jimmy Buffett had done many years before. Of course Hattiesburg is my hometown as I am not a coast rat.
When I was compiling this list I noticed something odd. Four of the six titles were one word: Hook (1991), Cobb (1994), Congo (1995), and Hoot (2006). The other two titles only had two word titles. I’m not sure what that means. Is there code here?
I have to do one disclaimer. Jimmy Buffett is a good man and works diligently to protecting the environment. I panned Hoot (2006) not because the message was wrong. Only the delivery was wrong.
This list of movies is done as a tribute to Mr. Buffet. I have always loved his music and images it invokes. This music will continue to be important to me. I am personally glad that Jimmy Buffet is out there singing and protecting the environment. I am waiting for him to run for governor of Florida but he will have to move back down here first.
I hope you enjoy this list, which by the way, contains all of the movies the Jimmy Buffett has appeared in. I look forward to hearing you comments.
|6||Hoot (2006)||A new kid movies to Florida and becomes involved in a fight to save endangered owls. A good premise that is terribly acted in the waste of time film. Jimmy Buffet plays teacher Mr. Ryan.|
|5||Jurassic World (2015)||A rehash of the original tail with more explosions and bigger stuff. Jimmy Buffet appears as a running tourist. Maybe he was running because this movie is so bad.|
|4||Hook (1991)||An interesting tale of a grown Robin returning to Neverland if you can take the scene chewing of Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman. Jimmy Buffet plays a shoe stealing pirate.|
|3||Cobb (1994)||Tommy Lee Jones plays the role of famous baseball player Ty Cobb and shows just how mean and detestable Cobb was. This movie is worth a watch. Jimmy Buffet plays an armless guy.|
|2||Repo Man (1984)||This movie is a cult classic where a young man is recruited into the repo business and becomes entangled with UFOs and a government conspiracy. Jimmy Buffet appears as a repo agent.|
|1||Congo (1995)||This Michael Crichton thriller scientist battle with highly evolved killer apes. Jimmy Buffet appears as a 727 pilot.|
