After reading Ryan's blog the other day, I knew I had to watch it - it's been a while.  Ryan, I think you would really like this movie!

Next time I'm at the store I promise to pick it up and I will let you know how I like it!

 

Right now I'm getting ready to watch one of my favorite funny Christmas movies.

I actually had just watched

Don't Say a Word a few weeks ago.  Brittany Murphy's death is a shock and a shame.  I liked her acting.

That sounds like it could be good, too.  Might make a good, yet quirky double feature with

Thin Blue Line 


 

No, in this one Grimm, after dismissing the Christmas panto as 'fannying about in tights', auditioned and got the part of Captain Hook that Raymond coveted, so he ended up, once again, as the alligator.  After learning that a bunch of thugs acting as carol singers were robbing houses while the owners were occupied listening, Grimm and co. arrested the first group of carol singers they found, which included most of the bigwigs of the town.  The funniest part was when Goodie mixed up the gifts of sexy lingerie for Habib and a tire puncture repair kit for Fowler, and especially the resulting interview between Fowler and Goodie.  A really strange hippie couple did give birth in the station, though.

 

It's been a while since I watched the whole series, and I don't remember the episode that you mentioned.  Who got pregnant?

Ok I've forgotten character names so forgive me. The guy Rowan Ackison played he was wearing this animal costume and one of the other cops was wearing the same costume. His wife was wearing the same costume as the one of the other  female cops was wearing. R thought he was screwing his own wife, the girl thought it was her boyfriend. Very funny warm follow up when his wife who couldn't get pregnant found out too.

Just finished watching it, wasn't quite as good as Blue Harvest but it was still pretty funny. I would recommend it to Family Guy fans. :smileyhappy:

The Tudors: Season 3

The Virgin Queen

Star Trek (2009)

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Re: What are you watching?

In the last 24 hours, I got to see The Hangover, Julie & Julia, and Taking Woodstock; the latter film was surprisingly good. I don't think I've ever seen Ang Lee try to attempt something with this much comedy in it, and he handled it well. Really excellent supporting cast, including Eugene Levy, Imelda Staunton, Emeile Hirsch, and Liev Schreiber.

 

But to be honest, what I'm really looking forward to is "The End of Time, Part 2," David Tennant's swan song on Doctor Who.

Without spoiling, was it a bummer because of how the episode actually turned out, or a bummer because it's the end of both Tennant as the Doctor and Russel Davies as producer/head writer?

Truthfully neither. Too much bluff and smoke.
