Movies I Will Never Get Sick of

You know when you are flipping channels and you see a movie from the 80’s or 90’s and no matter how many times you’ve seen it you have to watch it again — or when you’re home sick and you want something silly and familiar to distract you — or just have that one movie that you can’t. stop. quoting? Well here’s a rundown of mine:

Parenthood: Steve Martin has a lot of siblings and a lot of kids. Wackiness ensues

Favorite quote: “I’m too young to be a grandmother. Grandmothers are old. They bake, and they sew, and they tell you stories about the Depression. I was at Woodstock, for Christ’s sake! I peed in a field! I hung on to The Who’s helicopter as it flew away!”

 

I Love You to Death: Kevin Kline cheats on his wife and she plots (badly) to kill him for it

Favorite quote:If we keep shooting Joey, don’t you think he might get suspicious?”

 

Postcards from the Edge: Meryl Streep is an actress in recovery with a challenging mother

Favorite quote: “Well, maybe I was an alcoholic when you were a teenager. But I had a nervous breakdown when my marriage failed and I lost all my money…Well, I got over it! And now I just drink like an Irish person.”

 

Soapdish: Sally Field is a soap diva whose life on and off her show is one big melodrama

Favorite quote:That’s depressing and it’s expensive, two words I hate. You know the words I like? I like the word ‘peppy’ and the word ‘cheap’. Peppy and cheap.”

Overboard: Goldie Hawn is a rich diva who gets amnesia and is led to believe she’s a housewife

Favorite quote: HOW CAN I CHOOSE!?!? As my mom puts it, “there’s an ‘Overboard’ quote for everything!”

“A falsetto child?”

“I’m a short, fat, slut”

“You shot a chicken?”

“It’s not us dad it’s Roy”

But darling, if you have a baby, you won’t be the baby anymore.”

“Eat your checkers!”

Oysters in a cold ocean at night? That doesn’t sound like me!”

Ahhh so many laughs — so many terrible trailers 🙂

Johnson, Navin R. – sounds like a typical bastard

I love Steve Martin. I shouldn’t have to explain why – he’s STEVE MARTIN! He’s The Jerk, he’s Gil Buckman, he’s Ruprecht the Monkey Boy. And now he’s on Twitter!!!

Last week he was on Letterman and sadly, lost an election to a dead opponent who ran a “negative campaign”:

Ooh and he has a great website in which his hilarious “leaked GPS locations” include Whoretown, Pouty Lips Tutor and the Money Cave!

And please do me a favor – if you haven’t seen The Jerk – GO DO IT RIGHT NOW!! You are missing about a million pop culture references from “he hates these cans!” to “I was born a poor black child” to “I’m picking out a thermos for you!” I’m pretty sure there’s a rather high percentage of my life that has been spent quoting this movie.
