Movie Madness Monday 52: Poor Trini Lopez edition
"Flllllllllyyyyyyyyy me to the moon and let me swing among the stars...." Yes, It's Movie Madness Monday's special Valentine's edition! Of course, we must mark the feast day of this mythological saint or saints with a lovely piece of romantic comedy.
Here's the 411: I give you quotes, and you respond in the comments section with a quote or two of your own from the same movie. We do not name the movie, however, even if it is patently obvious, because some people have got no patents. I will out the movie next weekend.
And I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day. Even the married people, like me, where I'm lucky if I don't end up cutting up someone's steak into chewable pieces. Ahh romance! At least Mr. Cornelius no longer considers a vacuum cleaner a romantic gift.... But enough about me!
"If he eats one tiny piece of a nut..."
"My head swells up like a watermelon and I drop dead."
"I don't think it could let a woman pay for dinner."
"Great. They'll have a parade in your honor."
"'I live in Tulsa.' Where is that?"
"Oklahoma. Do you know where that is?"
"Somewhere in the middle."
"I'm not going to think about what they're not teaching you in school. I am not going to think about it."
"It is easier to be killed by a terrorist after the age of 40 than it is to get married--"
"That is not true! That statistic is NOT true."
"It's not true, but it feels true."
"'...and while we're on the subject, let's just say right now that Brooks Robinson was the best third baseman ever. It's important that you agree with me on that because I'm from Baltimore.'"
****Weekend update: This movie was just like magic, especially if you're
I'm not too sure about the Brooks Robinson bit, since I'm awful partial to Mike Schmidt. But this is one of Nora Ephron's best pieces of work. Then there's Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, Rosie O'Donnell, Bill Pullman, Rob Reiner, and Rita Wilson. Not to mention a cameo by Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. And I didn't even make you go to the top of the Empire State Building!
