It's MMM again! Monday Movie Madness from Nicole over at The Madlab Post
We're focusing on clowns this week, and the first thing I thought of was that episode of Friends where Joey and Chandler took Ross's baby to the park because Ross said it would help them pick up chicks. It did not. It made the chicks think they were a cute, gay couple. They got attention, but no dates. On the way home, they leave the baby on the bus, and thus have to go the bus depot to pick up their baby. There are two babies. They can't identify the baby. One has a duck shirt, one has a clown shirt.
The embedding is disabled on the clip but you've GOT to give 1:23 and you'll start your day with a belly laugh.
It's the hardest I've laughed probably ever and I'm chuckling as I write it. Oh, and rest assured, they get the right baby. Eventually.
The other clown I chose for today breaks my heart. No, not Heath Ledger as the joker, though I considered him because damn, what a waste of a talented young man's life, so sad.
No, I'm thinking of John C. Reilly's “Mr. Cellophane” from “Chicago”. It's one of my favorite movies, and his solo is one of the best scenes. Without going into too much detail, since I'm rocking the brevity thing these days (in my opinion at least...you tell me) he's the sad and lonely husband of Roxie Hart, in jail for killing her lover. If you have time, watch the video, at least the first part where he's putting on his clown make-up and dancing in the dusty light on the empty stage with no one listening.
If you'd like to participate, you can either name your movies in the comments, or write your own post and leave the link over in Nicole's comments. It's an easy way to start a week, and I know a LOT of bloggers who are movie buffs. Just sayin'...
