Just because I felt like it

I'm in a reflective mood at the moment as most most people are after a bereavement but my thoughts have reminded me of one of my favourite films All of Me starring the very talented Steve Martin. The excerpt below is all about life after death but done in the most entertaining fashion possible. The first time I saw this film and particularly the last 3 minutes or so of this clip I absolutely fell about laughing so stick with the clip till the end- you won't regret it. I'm laughing right now and I've watched it countless times - and if you ever get the chance to watch the film in full I heartily recommend it!

  4. Speedy,

    Hmm, this IS worrying. Not only do we both like Billy Joel but we like the same movies. And I sent out an electronic dancing Christmas card last year! Oh dear...and I was counting on looking sane next to you!

    I guess you like Airplane too?? Hmm...I'd better stick you on my blogroll so I can keep up with the strange going-ons in Hollydale.

    Delighted Scribbler... Yes this is a great film and I pretty much like everything Steve Martin has done; he has such a versatile face and body...like Jerry Lewis had... Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Michael Caine is another favourite of mine. The straight faced Caine and the barmy Martin are a perfect combination!
