Pitch Perfect

4 Feb

I ‘ve watched this movie twice now.  It is hilarious.

If I had one of those tv chips that mutes out certain words, I’d even let the kids watch it because nothing bad happens on screen.

The best part is that there are some pretty great lines that I can probably quote many times forever.  Here are my favorites:

**”Jon, you’re so right, every thing else seems wrong.”

**” You guys are awesome…ly horrible.  I hate you. Kill yourselves.”

**”I wish I could ____, but I can’t and I hate myself every day because of it.”

**”Once again proving that it doesn’t get better for everyone after high school.”

**”I’m gonna finish him like a cheesecake.”

**”Just leave it.  It feeds my hate fire.”

**”Or maybe I didn’t because I was hit by flying Mexican food.”

AND the ultimate:

PitchPerfectBumper: “I have the feeling we should kiss.”

Fat Amy:  “I sometimes have the feeling I can do crystal meth.  But then I think: mmmm, better not.”

Sometimes Cinderella doesn’t get to go to the ball.

Because even though she is invited, it still costs fourty-hundred dollars to get in.

Because even though she has a dress, and a coach, the food to feed the horsepower is a hundred-hundred dollars.

Cinderella does not have all these hundreds dollars

It will be okay though, because Cinderella is nothing if not resourceful.

Cinderella and her six mice will have their own ball.  Cinderella will even invite the pretty step-sisters.

The food will be good, and the dancing will be great and the clothing will be spectacular.

 

Shades of Josh H

10 Apr

A Hahahahahahaha. Leave me a comment if you are nerdy enough to get it and know tthe author of the book that inspired the other movie I’m referring to 🙂

Made this for a friend. I mean no disrespect to Josh–he is super cute and I’m sure if I was 16 I’d be swooning my way through the movie. Maybe I swooned a little bit anyway.

Some Like It Hot

4 Mar

Last week, the Man of the House and I went tango dancing. It was marvelous! We both loved it-even though we were beginners. We have tried merengue, salsa, waltz, and square dancing before. We had fun with those but TANGO is our dance. I intend to make sure we continue with it!!!!!

The tango music was familiar to me and I remembered a movie my sisters and I LOVED watching when we were girls.

Some Like it Hot with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemon.

So funny! (“How do they walk in these things? It’s like Jello on springs.”)

Jack Lemon’s character, Jerry/Daphne the Bass Fiddle player, is my favorite. Tony Curtis (Jo/Josephine the sax player) makes a prettier woman, but he isn’t as funny.

Probably my favorite quote from the whole movie is when Tony Curtis who has been masquerading as Josephine, changes into sailor clothes to pose as a millionaire–attempting to woo Marilyn Monroe. Jack Lemon is angry about it and gripes him out.

Jerry/Daphne : “And where did you get that phony accent? No-body talks like that!” You have to hear it though and I couldn’t find a YouTube of it. Because actually, Tony Curtis is doing Cary Grant’s voice and doing it perfectly.

So glamorous! (Marilyn Monroe & Tony Curtis making out fully clothed for hours. That’s how I formed my first ideas of what sex was. I haven’t decided if that was a good thing or a bad thing. But I do know it is preferable to all the movies today that just throw people naked in bed with no prelude and no prettiness.)
