Let’s Go Free Willy!

No, Free Willy is not my campaign to unleash the beast from Jon Hamm’s pants, though I can understand your confusion.

It may look like a dangerous anaconda, but it is actually quite friendly!

Free Willy, of course, is a motion picture about a kid and a killer whale. At one point it jumps over the boy.

TOTALLY looks real.

Let’s be honest, this is the only part that anyone remembers from the movie.

And today, Free Willy celebrates its 20th birthday–it was released in the US on July 16, 1993.

As you can expect, I saw it in the theater at least once, possibly two times. It’s not that I had a crush on the star Jason James Richter . . . .

Mullets were never my thing.

Mullets were never my thing, except on David Faustino.

It’s just that I was 13 and not a girl, but not yet a woman, and as such I wasn’t allowed to see a ton of Rated R movies like Cliffhanger and In the Line of Fire. So Free F—ing Willy it was.

Though you bet your ass if they re-released Free Willy in the theaters as they did that other https://thedvrfiles.com/2013/06/11/jurassic-park-is-20-today/ I’d totally be there, in case anyone is wondering.
