The other day I had popped over to the Adventures of Tartanscot, a blog that I check out regularly, and he had a post that mentioned Joe vs the Volcano, a Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movie from several years back. Um... not just "several" years.... it was from 1990 .. egads! Anyways, there was a comment that wasn't just the usual, so of course I linked over to check it out. Reading that blog lead me to post a comment affirming a few of my favourite movies, which included a Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins film called IQ. This is one of those movies from the 90s that I have on VHS... but don't yet have on DVD. It is not your average, everyday romantic comedy, and... I had forgotten how much I liked it.
A fresh faced Tim Robbins and effervescent Meg Ryan are the main characters along with Walter Mathau brilliantly playing Uncle Albert... Albert Einstein. The show, however, is stolen by Einstein's three goofball genius friends, their antics and dialogue as well as by the way their scenes were shot and edited.
Here's a few lines for a taste:
When's the last time you went wahoo?
Where were you? Thinking. I was worried about you... That I was thinking?
Zis is what we miss in physics.... screaming.
To atoms... those sexy little kinkies.
Don’t let your brain interfere with your heart.
Everything affects everything.
Because I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right.
I may feel or look like this, but without the beer.
Always liked this song by Incubus. "I Miss You"
HAVE I GONE TOTALLY DAFT and SAPPY? Nope. I found this video on YouTube and it made me smile. i.e. "If I promise not to kill you, can I have a hug?"
Need a smile?
I have had the Minions "Banana" clip here for a few years, but lately it has switched to "Autoplay", when the blog is loading, but I don't see it in the embed code, so I've just removed it today. Dec 11, 2016
