WTB - Bandits!
I really love this movie. I just think it is so fun and it totally entertains me. I love the story, I love the acting, I LOVE the characters, I love the twist ending and I love who Kate ends up with when it's all said and done- which I think is something about the movie that many have a complaint with, but I say, "well played, sir." (and I love the alternate ending). I even think Bruce Willis is great and he is an actor that I'm either just barely lukewarm about or he gets a big "eh". Cate Blanchett plays a great "unbalanced woman (to a spectacular degree)", but I must say- Billy Bob's character with his hypochondria and OCD, is my favorite part. Remember that scene in the bar when he plays "Just the Two of Us" over and over and over and Kate is like "I love this song!" (thinking they have made a connection) and he is like- I didn't know what song it was, every time I see a jukebox, I have to push A1 over and over and over. Or something like that, it just cracks me up. ALSO, I don't know how it came up, but a few months ago Rob and I somehow were talking about U2 (or maybe we heard a clip of the song) but I mentioned that "Beautiful Day" is the only U2 song I think is pretty good and don't mind hearing now and then. Then I sat there for a minute and then said, "Hmmm, do you think that might be because it's in Bandits?" Before I even started the sentence, Rob was chuckling and nodding his head in agreement -he thought the exact same thing. Anyway-- this is my current "anytime/rainy day movie" by current I mean for the last few years. If you haven't seen this one, you gotta. I know it clunked with Sue, but it's worth a shot, maybe you'll like it as I do.
I really wanted to do the quote about Terry's Neil Young wig, but it isn't anywhere online, so I was going to pull my movie out and make the sacrifice of watching it to pull the quote out directly but I can't find my copy! I'm so sad. Something must be done about that soon.......
Well, peeps- Pops got it with the first quote! Way to go dad! Alex also got it right (after the Wednesday clue). I also (as I made mention earlier) got a guess from Matt and one from Dan and they both guessed "Saving Silverman" after the second clue. I can see how they came to that conclusion. Matt was totally positive he got it right, Dan was shaky about it. Dan later came up with the right guess after the Friday clue. *****Hold it: Just checked my phone and I got a text from Matt at 10:51 tonight that reads, "Bandits. Dang."*****
Chalk another one up for Pops!
Oh, and if you didn't get my joke clue by now, it came from this:
