If your life was a movie...


...which one would it be?

This question was being discussed by a group of female coworkers of Mr. RK today.

One said, "The Hangover." Another said, "A Series of Unfortunate Events." Another, who is pregnant, said, "Knocked Up."

And one said, "Deepthroat."

They all laughed, until they saw Mr. RK, and then they all blushed.

So Mr. RK asked me, "How about you? One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?"

"Hey!" I replied. "Because of my job (mental health advocacy), or because of me personally?"

His answer: "A little of both."

TTTThhhhhhhhhhhhpppppppppppppppppppttttttttttt.


But anyway. I started thinking it would be a good idea for a blog post. And then I started thinking that all of my favorite movies, well, wouldn't really fit:

Dead Again (Zombies?)

A Charlie Brown Christmas (a little 2-dimensional)

Four Weddings and a Funeral (I'd have a ways to go, hopefully)

Debbie Does Dallas (Ok, just kidding. I've never been to Dallas. Except to the airport. And we won't talk about that. It wasn't *that* long of a layover.)

Ratatouille (No.)

Spiderman 2 (also no.)

I asked, "What's yours? Hellboy?"

He said, "No. Blazing Saddles."

How about you? If your life was a movie, what would it be?

Dr. Strangelove. Based on the findings of the report, my conclusion was that this idea was not a practical for reasons which at this moment must be all too obvious.

27 Dresses. THAT GUY IS HOT.

Alternatively, Devil Wears Prada, because I would never say no to a pair of sensible leather heels.

A Christmas Story. Always on the hunt for that elusive golden ring that we all know ain't good for ya, but you want it anyways.

I was floored when I saw the movie "Georgia Rules" with Jane Fonda and Lindsey Lohan. My life, only not the supportive grandma and happy ending, but it really validated me :)

(BTW, I made my own happy ending)

Justin has asked me this before. Are we talking about what movie our life most closely resembles or what movie we'd be in (as a life) if we could?

Granny Annie said...

STATE FAIR. No kidding, that's the world I grew up in. I was very sheltered. The real world still shocks me.

Riot Kitty said...

CB: I was thinking what it most closely resembles. But why not answer both?
GA: I haven't seen it...the world continues to shock me, but not always unpleasantly ;)
