Last night Greg was working and I watched the movie “Jersey Girl“. I had recorded it a few days ago and was waiting for the right opportunity. Ben Affleck is really good in this movie. His seven-year-old daughter played by Raquel Castro is fantastic!! If you are looking for a great movie – this one might be it! It is a surprising father/daughter love story – with solid characters and a plot that will make you laugh and cry.
After I watched it – I was curious about some of the songs from the soundtrack and went to look them up on youtube. Music creates a mood and can bring you down as well as lift you up. As I was discovering lost little gems like “Wandering” by Ben Folds and “Let my love open the door” by Pete Townshend, I saw on the right side of my screen the HILARIOUS song that opened the movie “Music and Lyrics” – a movie I absolutely LOVE! I watched it and found myself laughing out loud!! It’s so silly that it is impossible to feel sad when watching it! Here is a spoof on the 80’s band “Wham” with costumes, hair and gestures. And all who listened to music of that era will know and understand. Hugh Grant is SO FUNNY and I believe this is his best performance in a movie. If you haven’t yet seen it – here is a fun music video which opens the movie.
Enjoy – and have a good laugh!
