We went to church in the morning and then home before heading to Cerritos to see the Four Aces and Debbie Reynolds…. Great shows with great talents. The Four Aces were amazing and several of the guys were the originals and their voices may have gotten better over the years. Debbie Reynolds just cracked us up with her end-to-end jokes about life.
After the show at Cerritos we went to Old Ranch to celebrate Zack’s 21st birthday. His birthday was on the 24th but we were at sea that day! Mr. Zachary is a good young man!
When we returned home, we needed a feel good movie so we watched “You Got Mail” for the ump-teenth time but it is always excellent. Summary: Two business rivals hate each other at the office but fall in love over the internet.
You’ve Got Mail is a 1998 American romantic comedy film directed by Nora Ephron, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. It was written by Nora and Delia Ephron based on the the play Parfumerie by Miklós László. The film is about two letter-writing lovers who are completely unaware that their sweetheart is in fact the person with whom they share a certain degree of animosity. An adaptation of Parfumerie was previously made as The Shop Around the Corner, a 1940 film by Ernst Lubitsch and also a 1949 musical remake, In the Good Old Summertime by Robert Z. Leonard starring Judy Garland. You’ve Got Mail updates that concept with the use of e-mail. Influences from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice can also be seen in the relationship between Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly — a reference pointed out by these characters actually discussing Mr. Darcy and Miss Bennet in the film. Ephron insists that You’ve Got Mail was as much about the Upper West Side itself as the characters, highlighting the “small town community” feel that pervades the Upper West Side.
we had just seen Debbie Reynolds so we wanted to see her movie entitled “The Unsinkable Molly Brown“… Great movie. Molly is an uneducated, poor, mountain girl who leaves her mountain cabin in search of a wealthy husband, respect and a better life.
