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 because 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 brought me a Leo Fish. 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.

  1. Hey Buffie, great to hear from you! I hope you have a lovely holiday too. Are you on the dreaded Facebook? If so, let me know.

  2. I’ve never seen this movie! And I love Ms. Hunter and Mr. RDJr. I will keep an eye out for it on cable this year! I have to admit, “Elf” is my favorite holiday movie of the past 10 years or so.

  3. Buffie, good for you! Thanks for being here. I have such ambivalence about FB, and Twitter, well…this blog is not rated for mature audiences only, so I won’t go into it.

  4. I found this because the phrase “Just because/just for scuzz” (how I remember it/doesn’t matter) is so imprinted on my consciousness, as far as I’m concerned, it should be a GIF. But, sadly, no… anyway, I also love this film; cheers.
