Covered by Bubbles and Channeling “The Jerk”

To celebrate summer fun, Redbox is asking moms, “What’s your favorite movie line?” Plus, they are rewarding 2 lucky families with a chance to win $10,000 as part of the Redbox Summer of Fun & Games Sweepstakes. How cool is that?

As much I love romance and will always watch the fabulous historical films like Pride and Prejudice, my favorite thing is laughter. I love to laugh long and hard. When I think about my favorite lines from movies – the ones I repeat all the time – they are from funny movies.

When I think about my favorite movies I think of Steve Martin.  Not only is he super funny but he plays a mean banjo and has worked little ditties into his movies that bring smiles and giggles from all.  You all know I love to sing.  Funny songs are the best thing ever.  Also, my kids like them.  It’s a total win!

My second choice of movie lines is from The Three Amigos and is a little song called “My Little Buttercup”.  If you have not seen it – go now.  Steve Martin, Martin Short and Chevy Chase are perfect heroes in this hilarious film.

My most favorite movie was made the year after I was born, in 1979.  The Jerk is irreverent and romantic and musical and stars Steve Martin and my favorite Broadway broad, Bernadette Peters.   I can talk and sing my way through this whole film.  It has more than just love and laughter…it tells the story of a young man who has nothing, finds love and riches, loses both and realizes that love is what we really need.  It is perfect.  Go potty before you watch it.  It is  that funny.

Well, Navin (Steve Martin) is singing a song in the bathtub to his love Marie (Bernadette Peters) as she quietly slips out the door.  I make up songs like this.   I love it.

I went overboard this time.  I got naked and got in my bathtub to re-enact one of my favorite moments.  Oh yes.  I am picking out a thermos for all of you.  Enjoy.  Be kind.  Give lots of yummy comments.

Here is the song in its wonderful entirety.

Honey guess what?  I wrote a song for you!
Oh, I’m picking out a thermos for you
Not an ordinary thermos for you.
But the extra best thermos you can buy…
with vinyl and stripes and a cup built right in.
I’m picking out a thermos for you
and maybe a barometer too…
and what else can I buy, so on me you’ll rely
a rear end thermometer too.

I had so much fun remembering and re-watching my favorite movie! And we all know that moms know how to rock the use of a rear end thermometer. The things we do for our children…
