I watched "Fish Tank" last night on Netflix Instant. It's a British film about a troubled teen girl with a terrible mother (and no dad around) in a dysfunctional household. Her lousy mom gets a new boyfriend who shakes things up. Good film -- kinda bleak but nonetheless worth a watch.

We had the library shake the dust off of the original "The Producers" with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder. Those blue eyes...

Great film. And speaking of Gene Wilder, we watched Willy Wonka the other day -- a film that is interwoven into the fond memories of my youth.

“Mr. Wonka: "Don’t forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he wanted."

Charlie Bucket: "What happened?"

Mr. Wonka: "He lived happily ever after.”

Thumbs up

Oh "The Producers" is a hilarious film! One that Mel Brooks rarely topped,
although many feel that "Blazing Saddles" was as good.

Any Mel Brooks movie is hilarious! Robin Hood: Men in Tights is another.

Admittedly, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein are my faves.

You're right about that, Dawg. Now I'm wanting to do a Mel Brooks marathon at our house. It will have to wait until later this year. Baseball season starts on Monday and I'll be all in for the next six (and with luck, seven) months.

Himself and I toss lines back and forth from "Young Frankenstein" a lot. Actually, it's not unusual for me to do that. A lot of times I'll use lines from plays and movies in our conversation, not to mention break out into a song as a reply to a question. (I think it annoys him a little, but I still do it. ) However, the fact that he throws a line from "YF" as a reply is hilarious to me. Love it!
