.....and the time is right for comedy movie videos! Who wants to come in after working in the yard and getting all sweaty to watch angst and drama on the small screen? (Well, OK, me. I am still working my way through Upstairs, Downstairs, you know.)

This Saturday night we watched:


My Favorite Year with Peter O'Toole. We LOVED it. 5 thumbs up from the Southard extended clan after Saturday night's viewing.

It is definitely an adult film--there are lines that you do not want your kiddos hearing. Peter O'Toole plays a washed up actor (obviously a riff on the swashbuckling Errol Flynn) who is making an appearance on "Comedy Cavalcade" (think "Your Show of Shows") in 1954 to pay off IRS debts. Joseph Bologna plays King Kaiser (think Sid Caesar or even Allan Brady from the old Dick Van Dyke show) with gusto.......

Best line from the movie? "I am not an actor! I am a movie star!"

Worth renting. Zteen: 3 stars out of 5. Mam-mom: 4 stars out of 5. Me: 3 1/2 stars out of 5.


As you know we have been having our own similar movie festival over here ... My Favorite Year has been beckoning me and this may be the push that does it. I LOVE that movie and the kids have seen the play ... time to get over to Premiere Video!
