Discussion in 'The Classics - Films' started by JET BOY, Jan 31, 2008.
His peak was teaching the Bogo Pogo Strictly Ballroom
Are there any Australian films without him in?
I like the part where she's fat and they make fun over her and the chick with the short hair swoops in with a cuntacular save.
Oh LOVES I was just thinking the other day that I need to see this again and LO AND BEHOLD it's on FILM4 tonight
Are you MURIEL HESLOP?
Yes you are!
I dunno why, you just ARE!
BEST FILM EVER
This is one of my alltime favourite films. It's just magical.
Oooh is this on tonight - I must watch. I haven't seen it in about 8 months
You haven't done anything terrible with that blank cheque I gave you, have you Muriel?
Dad's looking for you, Muriel
He's VERY ANGRY
I'd only ever seen bits and pieces of it until I finally got the DVD last year (inspired by a PM of Cécile's ). A re-watch is in order, I feel!
Who's watching it now?
And she was THE MOST USELESS ONE OF ALL, wasn't she Bill?
Nothing floors me more than: Muriel, the police are here to see you. It's about your dress.
She's a WONDERFUL PERSON, I don't care what anyone else says
All those people who've never liked Dad. Those GREENIES and those TERRIBLE WOMEN at the post office
what a COINCIDENCE!
I love I Do being where it is - to me that song sounds kind of miserable, or maybe that's because I associate it with this film (in a good way). 10/10 from me.
Love this movie, wish they'd release it on blu ray already!
I watched this tonight (hadn't seen it for a few years) and it really is fantastic - I find quite a bit of it uncomfortable viewing though, particularly the scenes with her dad.
Who would later go on to be Brenda Chenowith
On Film4 again. I seriously never tire of this film.
I now have I Do I Do I Do I Do I Do stuck in my head.
There are so many amazing lines in this film. I'm not sure why most of them are amazing. Maybe it's that it's all so very Australian or maybe it's that the casting and the acting is absolutely spot on.
Toni Collette's delivery of lines like "....An apprentice locksmith!" and "I'm a beauty consultant!" absolutely kills me, time and time again.
And no matter how many times I hear it, I'll never not be a little bit delirious when Rachel Griffiths asks/exclaims "YOU JILTED A COP?!".
The mother storyline is pretty devastating. I never think of the film as a comedy though, even though it's probably one of the funniest films ever.
I used to fancy the video-store guy, something rotten.
I just have a crush on Rhonda
Oh I'm so glad it's not just me!
It's that sort of squashed up look.
Starting on Channel 5 Right now
It's a CHRISTMAS SCHEDULING MIRACLE
Fans of Muriel should watch Mental, which reunited Toni Collette with PJ Hogan and is based on his childhood experiences of his mother being sectioned and his dad bringing home a hitchhiker to act as a nanny. I was looking for one of the clips online but the entire thing has been uploaded to YouTube.
The Liev Schreiber plot is unnecessary but there's some amazing scenes involving a jam and cream doughnut, menstrual emergencies and a lezzer on the prowl for young girls.
Prior to just now and the power of Twitter, I had NO IDEA that David Van Arkle was married to Fay Ripley
Coming soon: MURIEL THE MUSICAL
The updated bit doesn't sound too promising though.
I'd read about the musical, but it's only planned for Australia so far, isn't it? It's going to have to make serious $$$ for them to consider taking it overseas.
I didn't read about the twitter business, and that sounds dreadful. Why feel the need to update it in that way? Although I suspect they won't have the rights to use Abba songs in any case, so that may well cast a very different perspective over the whole story.
Australia-originated musicals King Kong!: The Musical and Strictly Ballroom!: The Musical both bombed into oblivion recently, so I'm not feeling overly confident.
I've read that they have got the rights to the ABBA songs though which rather surprised me. But you know B & B just love that DOLLAH!
How did The Boy From Oz do on Broadway financially? I can't see anyone have been interested without Huge Jackman.
The article says they'll have Abba songs alongside the specially written ones.
And whatever happened to Bridget Jones: The Musical by Lily Allen?
Waiting for Sarah Harding's schedule to become clear for that lead role.
Alcohol units - 374
I can only assume there isn't a competing production of Mamma Mia that could suffer.
In fact is London the only permanent resident production now?
I stumbled across The Mail's article earlier which basically said something VERY bizarre how it appears Toni Collette is not reprising her role, though no cast has been announce yet SHOCK! 1.) They have no idea at all. 2.) Why on earth WOULD she? 3.) How on earth COULD she? She's twenty years too old for starters! GOD I hate that fucking RAG...
Lily Allen left the project in 2014 due to Helen Fielding constantly fiddling with the story.
Fielding said it was still on at the recent BJ3 premiere but we're looking at SEVEN years of development hell so far and nothing to show for it.
I was watching this again only LAST NIGHT
"I've got something to tell you. I'm a PARKING INSPECTOR."
