I have such great taste in fine films

Last night while sewing some Easter napkins (yes, I was sewing Easter napkins the day after Easter, I am my mother’s daughter) I watched a few movies on Netflix.  My Netflix queue is a bit like my iTunes, I love everything on it but I’d be so ashamed for anybody other than a few close friends and select family members to see it.  You see, my taste in movies isn’t always high brow.  I wish I could say I loved French art films or classic cinema but in reality, my favorite genre is B-list 80s and 90s comedies. Movies like Fletch, Innerspace, Dragnet, Foul Play and anything with Pauly Shore fill my queue and I shamefully click “not interested” on films like Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Cool Hand Luke.

One movie I thoroughly enjoyed last night happily dances on the line between classic  and ridiculous:  The Muppets Take Manhattan. I love The Muppets, I think they’re hilarious. A Muppet Christmas Carol is my favorite Christmas movie. I lived for Muppet Babies every Saturday morning as a child and Muppets Tonight was my first introduction to evening talk shows.  

Sidebar: When I was in New York in January, we went to FAO Schwartz and they have a Muppet Factory where you can make a character to look like you! I died.

But back to The Muppets Take Manhattan… I have a feeling that I’m going to have this song stuck in my head all day. Isn’t Piggy fabulous? She’s always well dressed, opinionated and yet so feminine.

Are there any movies you love that you’d be ashamed to own up to?

  1. Your post reminded me of one of my favorite quotes:

    “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time
    to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.”
    – Miss Piggy
