the scoop, the dip and the 411

I watched "Cars" last night. I gotta say that Larry the Cable Guy's tow truck character looked exactly the way he sounded. It was hilarious. And for sumdum reason Blogger isn't letting me upload the pic so you can see how funny it is. I'll try tomorrow.
My favorite line in the whole flick was when Larry said, "I'm happier than a tornader in a trailer park!" I give this movie a four out of five. It was cute though in that all the characters were cars. There weren't any people in the movie at all.
I'm getting a lot better at guessing the voices, though. The only one I couldn't place in "Cars" was Katherine Helmond. I knew the voice, but I couldn't put a face to it.

Jay informed me that it's Rip TAYLOR I'm thinking of, not Rip Torn.
I thought they were both named Rip Torn. Good thing he's on top of this sort of stuff!
The DMV dude has a bad toupee EXACTLY like Taylor has. Brrrr.
Hard to believe two different men could make the same tragic mistake, huh?

Definitely a movie on my to-see list. I find I keep doing that thing too, watch a plot, but simiutainiously have this conversation running around my brain saying, "Which film did I see that guy in? What's her name, again?" And ANSWER myself, "No, that's not her, she was that other girl, this one is someone else.." And then I realise I'm talking aloud.

My mum used to annoy the hell out of me when she did that. Now I just annoy the hell out of my kids! What comes around, goes around!

See? I told you a long while back, that even YOU would like this one! Better than goin' to a theater, and gettin' kicked in the back, let alone smellin' of everybody's asses when they decide to get up and leave! Other than that reason, I just don't like, let alone trust, people in general!(DUH!)

Like Mater says, "She just wants me for my body!"

Next time I watch an animated flick, SWS, I'm going to read the cast FIRST. I don't know why it bugs me so much and why I continue trying to bring a face to mind, but I do! It's distracting.

You were right, Bruno. I did like it. Larry was great in this. This NetFlix is great, though, because my husband refuses to go to a theater unless there's porn involved, and we all know how long it's been since there were porn theaters. Now at least when people talk about different movies, I have some concept of what they're discussing.

What face ya' tryin' to place? Katherine Helmond? She was the Tin Lizzy! Oh, before that? Try the old ABC-tv series, SOAP. Remember that one?

Yeah, after I saw the name, I knew who she was, but it was while I was watching the movie. I knew the voice was familiar, but I couldn't put a face to it. I remember her more from "Who's the Boss?" "SOAP?!" Dude, you're OLD! LOL. I remember when that show first came out how it was soooo "forbidden" because of the gay character and all the other weirdos.
