Thoughts On A Film

Watching one of your loved one’s most treasured childhood films is a dangerous proposition. I learned this the hard way when I didn’t fall in love with the Goonies. But as we watched the actually brilliant Drop Dead Fred one night I realised something. Scientists could prove that the funniest things in the world involve people losing control of their body under the influence of others. Evidence:

    The blah blah blah scene with Evan in Bruce Almighty, punting an otherwise ordinary movie into classic status.
    The lunchtime date scene in Drop Dead Fred, where she throws her meal out the window.
    Any Charismatic Church I’ve ever been at where the Spirit “slays” people. It’s impolite to laugh in public at that though.
