Day 2: Favorite Movie

My favorite movie of all time is Steel Magnolias.

With scenes like:

Drum: Ouiser, can we call a truce long enough for me to get a piece of cake?
[Ouiser slices him the tail piece of an armadillo cake]
The comment Drum comes back with is hilarious, but since we are somewhat PG here at …life’s about a dream, I’ll let you Google it.

Quotes like:

[about the new mayor’s wife dancing]
Clairee Belcher: Looks like two pigs fightin’ under a blanket.

had me rolling.

This one too…

Ouiser Boudreaux: I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a very bad mood 40 years!

Don’t forget these lines said with a significant southern drawl:

Truvy: What are your colors, Shelby?
Shelby: My colors are “blush” and “bashful.”
M’Lynn: Her colors are “pink” and pink.”
Shelby: My colors are “blush” and “bashful” Mama!
M’Lynn: How pretentious is this weddin’ gonna get, I ask you?

M’Lynn: That sanctuary looks like it’s been hosed down with Pepto-Bismol.

You laugh.  You cry.  You thank God for your friends.

    Oh how fun! I do love this movie. Thing is, I love so many movies, I don’t know I can claim ONE being my absolute favorite.
    Do you like Julia Roberts in Mona Lisa Smile? I really like that one.
    Steel Magnolias is great.
    How fun! 🙂
