Tonight we are watching a movie together as a family. Eli decided he wanted to see well-known, older movie he hasn't seen before. As a film studies/media major in college, he is very interested in movies. Mr G suggested a comedy, so we scrolled through Netflix and settled on 9 to 5.
What a kooky old film! It was released in 1980 (Mr G's senior year of high school). The big glasses, big hair, angular cheek-bones, bright make-up, and shiney lip-gloss help add to the humor for our kiddos, especially when they realize their mom and dad actually used to dress that way!
And the girls in the movie, Dolly Parton and Lilly Tomlin, are two of our favorites. Dolly is such a gem! I have always loved to watch her films and see her movies. I am not a country music fan, but she is one of several I will listen to once in a while. Her story is one I have found inspiration in on more than one occasion. Mr G and I have also enjoyed Lilly Tomlin since she was sitting in her big chair on laugh in.
More than how fun the movie is, though, is how much fun it is to watch a a movie all together as a family, and experience I treasure!
