Laughed, Almost Uncontrollably!

Okay, I will finish up telling you about what else I did as I was recovering from being sick.  If you weren't aware I have been ill, you may want to read recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries.

You'll probably laugh when you read this, but I watched television.  You're probably thinking to yourself... of course you did, Lynn!  Well, it was one more thing I did.

In addition, I watched movies.

First, I watched some old movies.  Classics.  The oldies, that were and still are considered romantic for their era, are some of my favourites. 

I enjoy movies with some old-time actors, like Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.  These are people who not only had an onscreen love for each other, but also real-life love.

Yes, of course, watching movies of this sort can be sad, during parts of the movie.  Yes, they make me feel sad at times, because I know that there is no love for me, in this world, anymore.

Still, I enjoy the passion that exudes onscreen.  Passion that isn't necessarily exhibited by means of nudity and/or being so sexually implicit that it leaves nothing to the viewer's imagination.

Then, I also watched some newer movies.  Maybe I should have said, less old movies.  Some I had seen, previously and some I hadn't.

Hairspray, was one.

Never before had I watched that movie.  I don't really know why; I just hadn't.

The version I watched was the one starring John Travolta.  Here's a link to Wikipedia, where you can read about it:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hairspray_(2007_film)

As I began watching the movie, I wondered where John Travolta was.  At first, I didn't see him.  Not that he's one of my favourite actors, although I do think he's a good actor. 

Still, I didn't see him at first, so I thought possibly he was going to have a late entry into the movie.

Not so!  I laughed almost uncontrollably, when I realized the part he was playing.  Be still my heart!  No, I won't tell you about it, if you don't already know, because I wouldn't want to spoil it for you.

I will say this:  if you don't laugh as hard as I did over some of the scenes, I'd be surprised.

Being a musical, one would naturally think the music would be good.  Well, I thought it was wonderful!


Until next time...
