Monday Movie Meme – Boredom

Feature Presentation…MONDAY MOVIE MEME
July is National Anti-Boredom month, and in honor of that, what are the movies you turn to when you’re bored?
This week’s question comes from Forgetfulone.  Visit the Bumbles for more boredom busters.
These movies always help curb any boredome I may have…
1.  Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings) 2001  Full of excitement and a storyline worth following.  Oh, and it has Strider who is always a cure for boredom :)
2. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles 1987  For some reason I never tire of this movie.  Makes me laugh every time.
3.The Philadelphia Story 1940.  Love the story, the performances, and the actors are some of my favorites.
 
Do you have a movie that you can watch to combat that bored feeling?

  2. “Those aren’t pillows!” and “You’re Going The Wrong Way!” are two of my favorite moments in that movie. But the best is the car rental lady – I always think of that scene when I’m waiting to pick up a car – makes me laugh while waiting impatiently :0)

    • The car rental scene is one of my favorites. Actually, it also makes me think of another car rental scene I love, the one from Seinfeld :)

  5. Stacy Planes, Trains and Automobiles is a wonderful movie! I will watch that anytime, terrific choice!

    Philadelphia Story, the same thing. I didn’t go into the older classic movies in my list because there are many of them that I will watch anytime such as almost all movies starring Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy and most movies starring Audrey Hepburn.

    Great post!

  8. John Candy was so good at playing the bumbling idiot with a heart of gold and pairing him with Steve Martin was casting genius! I love that movie and haven’t watched it in years. I need to get a new DVD player.
