Movie Madness

Have you ever noticed how life seems to imitate art? Or is that art imitating life? More specifically, have you ever observed how life imitates the movies? Or is that the movies imitating life?

You decide.

For example, I am sure most of you have thought about buying a house. - - ( The Money Pit.)

Have you ever gone out to eat at a new Italian Restaurant? - ( Attack of the Killer Tomatoes )

Guys, do you ever think of the consequences when you cheat on your significant other? - ( Attack of the 50-Foot Woman )

Gals have you ever been disappointed when you are about to make love to that stud? - (The Incredible Shrinking Man)

Tired of all the bills in the mail? - (The Postman Always Rings Twice)

Did you ever regret going out with someone? - (9 1/2 Weeks) - (Last Tango in Paris)

Guys, did you ever take her for that diamond and she made a beeline for the Tiffany's display case? - (Romancing the Stone)

Have you ever gotten a raw deal at a motel? - (Psycho)

Women, have you ever cringed when your "Mr. Fixit" husband tried to fix that leak under the sink? - (Waterworld)

Have ever been to a restaurant and the food tasted funny? - (Eating Raoul)

Girls, have you ever felt you were being undressed by the men in a club? - ( The Planet of the Apes)

And girls, have you ever fled that club at last call or closing time? - (The Night of the Living Dead)

I can't think of any more, but I will say this -- the last time the Cable Guy came to my house, I was tempted to reenact The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The telephone guy, now, was another story. He sort of put me in the mind of Body Heat.:)

Fun post, Mike. I was beating myself in the head trying to come up with something for tomorrow when, voila, someone sent me another pity piece. They do say God looks out for idiots. LOL. Now I have to go take some drugs for the headache.

When it's Mike's day to post, like today, he manages to get a lot of interaction going and you know it's going to be fun. But Galen, speaking of interaction, you ought to do a couple of my "interactive quizzes" from yesterday on my other blog. I'd love to see your answers.

Hale McKay said...

Check out the interaction over at IOTM. I still feel good about it.
