“But WHAT? My children are in need of medical assistance! And you can sit here and smugly lecture me on the importance of tests? Tests which exist to pigeonhole childrens potential, a thing which cannot *possibly* be measured, least of all by anal compulsive HUNS! And my husband may be a “large child,” but that’s none of your business! And my children may be rotten, but they’re MINE. And I think that they’re bright, and sensitive, so I have no doubts whatsoever about their intelligence. I do however have *serious* doubts about YOURS.” Annie said quickly.
A fun comedic movie with Kurt Russel and Goldie Hawn.
It’s an unusual comedy and just plain fun!
Here is the basic plot…Snobbish and wealthy Joanna Stayton (Goldie Hawn) is living a life of leisure with her husband, Grant (Edward Herrmann), when she falls off their yacht and suffers amnesia. Grant takes the opportunity to rid himself of the demanding Joanna — but Dean (Kurt Russell), a widowed carpenter with four kids who once worked for Joanna, arrives and claims she’s his wife. Joanna can’t remember her past identity, but has trouble believing that she was ever meant to be a working-class mother of four.
The film was directed by Gary Marshall who also directed Pretty Woman, The Princess Diaries, Runaway Bride, and A League of their Own.
The score was done by Alan Silvestri and Randy Newman.
You can get the soundtrack for about 50 dollars on Amazon.
