My mother-in-law is visiting this week so I may or may not be posting and commenting a lot. Who knows? This afternoon she and Calypso watched My Fair Lady together. Mr. Lime declared it an awful movie due to the singing. MIL said she wishes all movies were musicals. Of course, this made my mind immediately jump to the absurd and I suggested Jaws: The Musical and began singing from the point of view of the fish. Calypso followed with Schindler's List: The Musical. I suggested a song to the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town (He's making a list and checking it twice....Yes, I think I just reserved a seat in hell for myself.) Then the entire family needed to riff on the theme with their own musical remakes.
Other suggestions included:
Saving Private Ryan
The Godfather (singing, "I'm gonna wash that horse blood outta my sheets...")
Dirty Harry (singing, "I feel lucky, oh so lucky. I feel lucky and ducky and gay and I pity any punk who isn't me todaaaay....")
Now it's your turn to prove our family isn't the only demented crew around here. Give me the mist unlikely movies to be remade into musicals and/or some song lyrics to start with.
