Know any Funny Movies?

Yesterday evening a visit from Cesily and Cippy came with the reminder that laughter is very good medicine:  So this is an official request for funny movies, or Utube videos, or Netflix suggestions.  Just in case the antics of my three darlings and the chickens aren’t enough.


So far feeling better than expected with my first snake medicine treatment- ginger and the the anti-nausea medication they gave me seem to be holding it at bay.  I am finding myself a bit foggy in the language department, but as most of you know that is not that unusual.  Today I took a nap, ate some miso soup, and watched birds out the front window eat the sunflower seeds Martin put out. Planning tonight to get the tree trimmed for Solstice.


May the renewed light shine peace and love on the world.

        Really lovely chuck photo.

        In the chuck vein, Muriel’s Wedding–definitely one of the finest movies ever made(Aussie)
        My Cousin Vinny–ditto(US)
        Elling–Swedish, subtitled, wonderful
        The Life of Brian(so seasonally appropriate)
        The Sapphires–I think that’s the name of it. They have it a VH and it’s a true story about three Aussie aboriginal girls who start a rhythm and blues band in the late 1960’s.

    Any clips from Whose Line is it Anyway? on YouTube. I watch those a lot!

    British Office
    Parks & Recreation
    Christopher Guest films: I own Best in Show, the Mighty Wind & Waiting for Guffman
    Moone Boy (might only be on Hulu)
    The IT crowd
    Portlandia (if you’ve never watched it, you must)
    I’ll stop now… I watch too much TV.

    Waking Ned Devine

  6. Roger Rocka says:

    If you’d like to laugh hard enough to wake the neighbors and to feel your spirits soar, there are three movies I’d recommend: Waking Ned Devine, Waiting for Guffman and The Gods Must Be Crazy. Here are links to reviews by Roger Ebert…

    I don’t listen to often, but I always find myself laughing out loud:
    I love you I love you I love you, Iris Daire…….

    1. Nancy Montgomery says:

      too often….

    Hey Iris-

    When you started talking about Pookas the first thing that came to my mind was “Darby O’Gill and the little people”. Sean Connery’s first film ever, I believe. If you haven’t seen it, the entirety is on youtube. Here’s the bit where Darby chases the Pooka:
    Your good cheer is missed greatly at work.

    I could not agree more with Waking Ned Devine and Waiting For Guffman. Also, laughed a ton at The Big Lebowski.

    So here is my (kind of long) list. First, movies:
    Lars and the Real Girl
    Some Like it Hot
    Little Miss Sunshine
    Arsenic and Old Lace
    Something About Mary

    And for a quick laugh, some youtube:
    This interview of Sarah Silverman

    Flight of the Conchords: Business Time (and other videos by them, also on youtube)

    This video

    This interview with Cate Blanchett and Ewan McGregor

    And from our own collection: This youtube video of Murphy talking about Monsters and this more recent one of him trying not to fall asleep

    That’s all for now,
    xxoo Betsy
