Word, you're never too old to do whatever you'd want to do. But if you remeber the first Lethal Weapon being in theaters, well you're old enough to count, and you may be shocked to know that it was released not ten or twelve but twentyfive years ago, on March 6, 1987.
The buddy-cop thriller not only cemented Mel Gibson's status as a household name after playing good-natured loose-canon 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.
To celebrate the legacy of the mighty duo Ben Craw put together a supercut mashup of movie characters uttering that line spoken most memorably by Danny Glover.
Happy Birthday detectives!
