Let's dance while the music plays

I think the balance of this film, for its oeuvre, was very close to perfect. It has some flaws but so do our lives. A film with heart and humour, great performances from the cast (this must have been a hoot to be a part of) and solid unshowy writing. I laughed, shed a tear, but the warmth of the film stays with me. The thanksgiving scene was splendid; I've been to a few myself when I lived in the ... read more

More favorite quotes from a film. (127 movies items)

"Adele: I'm giving thanks that we don't have to go through this for another year. Except we do, because those bastards went and put Christmas right in the middle, just to punish us. Leo: Walter, when you say "cash is king," what's that mean? Walter: Cash is the fossil fuel that keeps our economic pistons pumping. Claudia 'Clyde' Larson: Didn't you have a girlfriend, or... Russell 'Sad Sack' Terziak: Yeah, she went and married my best buddy Ray."

"We always watched this movie around the holidays, probably because it reminds us of our relatives. The rich snobs (my dad's family), the clinically insane aunt (which I have five of), the gay brother (my brother)... I have a major soft spot for this film, and I still watch it every time Christmas comes around. "
