Make me laugh! Go on, I dare you!
Hey! Just because I love my non-fiction books and historical documentaries, doesn't mean I don't love to laugh! Do you know that I love to watch comedies? Oh my yes, I adore them! Not just any old thing, I am very particular. Not only does it have to tickle my funny bone but it has to be something that is not offensive to me . I am not THAT fond of vulgar language and such. I know it is very popular for every other word to be the "F" word but I still find it jarring. (I am old, after all!) What is the point of me telling you this? I am going to tell you about a film that I saw on TV this past weekend...
As I told you in my last post, I was not feeling well at all, so it was nice to watch a movie on TV that really made me laugh, one that I can highly recommend. My husband enjoyed it also, he thought it had a great supporting cast with Jude Law and Jason Statham.
You might have already seen this film, it is from 2015, after all!
If so, you might wonder why I didn't notice any bad language...the film was edited for TV and I must admit, I really wonder if I would have liked it as much had it not been edited. Melissa McCarthy is a great actress and just so very funny! Anybody remember my post about the English comedian and actress, Miranda Hart? She is in this film also! She and Melissa McCarthy were so good together, I hope they will do a sequel to this film. The director, Paul Feig, was the same one who re-did the Ghostbusters movie with female leads in 2016. If you remember, I think I told you how much it surprised me to love that movie. Melissa McCarthy was in that one too, he must like her as much as I do! So...I love comedies and I must look out for any other films that Paul Feig will direct, since I obviously like his work.
Much of the filming for "Spy" was done in Budapest! If you ever want to know the details of any film, I hope you know to look at the IMDb, the Internet Movie Data Base...I look things up constantly about films and TV shows. For this movie, you can find the info just here.
On my Dad's calendar, there is a quote by Booker T. Washington, "If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else". Oh dear, that might be a paraphrase...but you get the idea, right? I love it and agree whole heartedly! (Wait...I must have a link to Booker T., you may read more about him just here. If you don't know him, you should!)
We had SNOW today here in the Atlanta area and it is very cold and will not get above freezing all day. Schools and many businesses are closed. By this weekend, it is expected to be 60 degrees! Might as well laugh, the world is crazy!
