My favorite movie to watch at this time of year is “Home for the Holidays” with the fabulous Ms. Holly Hunter. That movie was one of the first films I ever decided to buy. I got it on VHS, loaned it to a friend, I think it was eaten by her VCR, so I got the DVD. I watch it before Thanksgiving because, even though my family is not crazy in the same way, and I don’t have to fly anywhere, most of my family lives here, it helps me cope with whatever craziness does bubble up within my circle.
Plus it’s just funny. Robert Downey Jr. is great; I thought I always wanted to have a brother like him, though really it would only be great if he delivered a Leo Fish for me. The scene where Holly Hunter comes into her parents house and the cat throws up something that looks like a dead vole, well, what can be better than that?
Watch it. Just ’cause. Just for scuzz.
