Movie Madness Monday 44: God Only Knows Where I'd Be Without You edition
Time for Movie Madness Monday again, and I almost did a Peter Boyle film, but that would be too obvious-- plus in my favorite one, he only had three lines that weren't grunts.
Here's how we play my little weekly game: I give you some quotes from a movie, and you respond in the comments section with a quote from the same movie. We DO NOT spill the name of the movie until Thursday, so everyone gets a chance to play while they're having their time taken up wrapping presents or standing in line at the mall.
So here we go again!
"We've been given our parts in the nativity play. And I'm the lobster!"
"Sometimes things are so transparency, they don't need evidential proof."
"But wouldn't it be great if number one this Christmas wasn't some smug teenager but an old ex-heroin addict searching for a comeback at any price?"
"Oh for the love of God, say yes, you skinny moron!"
"What is this we're listening to?"
"I can't believe you still listen to Joni Mitchell."
"I love her. And true love lasts a lifetime. Joni Mitchell is the woman who taught your cold English wife how to feel."
"Did she? Oh well that's good. I must write to her some time and say thanks."
"We may be a small country-- but we're a great one, too. The country of Shakespeare, Churchill, the Beatles, Sean Connery, Harry Potter. David Beckham's right foot. David Beckham's left foot, come to that."
***Thursday Update: What can keep you from feeling blue during the holiday season?
A fabulous ensemble cast including the incomparable Bill Nighy (AKA Davy Jones in the latest Pirates of the Caribbean flick) --seen doing a fabulously arch Robert Palmer take-off here-- and Hugh Grant (yummy!), my favorite female actor Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Liam Neeson, Rowan Atkinson, Laura Linney, and yes, Keira Knightley, who is an absolute babe, according to Mr. Lawrence. Not to mention a cameo by Claudia Schiffer, speaking of babeness. Filled with love and laughs, you definitely need to see this one. I've probably watched it thirty or forty times.
Join Mamacita and me round the TV. I'll bring the popcorn.
