Q: “You’re not my brother. You’re just some git I met once.”

A1: Four Weddings and a Funeral.

_96637_four_weddings_and_a_funeral_poster_300Said [well, signed; the character’s deaf] by David to Charlie when Charlie is late to an important meeting because he was busy being a jackass & chasing some soon-to-be-married chick.  Again.

A2: BEST MOVIE EVER.  Okay, so it gets bogged down in the monumentally talentless Andie MacDowell.  But it ultimately manages to overcome the nothing-but-a-pretty-face and achieve total awesomeness!  I mean, come on— the first line of the movie is “Fuck!”  How can you not get behind that?  When I first saw it at 12; I laughed myself silly.  Plus, it stands up to obsessive re-watching on a level only matched by The Princess Bride and High Fidelity.

A3: Replace ‘brother’ with ‘sister,’ and this is a recipe for my day.  I know, I know– I’m whining.  But my sister is getting married today– the last wedding of the Summer of Endless Weddings– and unfortunately, I have no delusions about this being a happy send-off.  Do not be alarmed if you start seeing news reports about a giant mushroom cloud over Western Pennsylvania this afternoon at around 3pm Eastern Time.

May the Father, the Son and the Holy Spigot help us all.

    Mike Newell!! Just watched Donnie Brasco for the first time in years. I will now revisit this lovely gem of a film…and do my best to ignore Andie McAnnoying.

    Congrats to your sis, even though I am gaining the perception that this isn’t the most joyful of days (or maybe unions). Anyway, I always loved this movie but hated so much that Andie McDowell was the love interest, she is just plain odd as a casting choice. Haven’t seen it in years for that exact reason, but am intruiged to rewatch being it sits high with Princess Bride AND High Fidelity.
