Movie Monday: I just blew in from the Windy City…

Happy Monday! Our April birthday-girl Doris Day was quite the songstress and so it only seemed fitting to share one of her best musicals: Calamity Jane. The Plot: As with the real Calamity Jane, Day\’s character is an obnoxious \”tomboy\” who likes to exaggerate her escapades. Likely, this is where the similarities end. The story highlightsContinue reading “Movie Monday: I just blew in from the Windy City…”

Movie Monday: The Girls From Upper Sandusky

Happy Monday! April continues with Doris Day and I couldn\’t wait to share my absolute favorite of her films: That Touch of Mink! Cary Grant, Gig Young, Audrey Meadows, and John Astin make this gem a real comedic treat from 1962. This film is what I think of anytime someone mentions Sandusky, Ohio or Asbury Park.  ThatContinue reading “Movie Monday: The Girls From Upper Sandusky”

Movie Monday: Rhubarb, Rhubarb, Rhubarb…

Happy Monday! Okay, so it\’s not a movie today… It\’s just that I\’m particularly biased to Rob Reiner\’s appearance on one of my favorite TV shows of all time. 30 Rock. (Now available on Hulu.)  The Plot: Season 5, Episode 3 \”Let\’s Stay Together\” is set off when Jack (Alec Baldwin) makes his appearance beforeContinue reading “Movie Monday: Rhubarb, Rhubarb, Rhubarb…”

Movie Monday: I\’ll have what she\’s having

A product of the super-duo of director Rob Reiner and writer/producer Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally is one of those quintessential Romantic Comedies that you simply have to watch. I do have to admit, though, that until I was an adult, I had no idea that the language sometimes left a little to be desired.Continue reading “Movie Monday: I\’ll have what she\’s having”

Movie Monday: The Princess Bride

Starting this month, I\’m going to be celebrating some famous actors\’ (and directors\’) birthdays by examining some of their work. March 6th is actor/director Rob Reiner\’s birthday so he seemed like a great first honoree. Rob was born in 1945, the son of the great Carl Reiner, and has a pretty incredible resume. Whether you knowContinue reading “Movie Monday: The Princess Bride”
