ON MOVIES ~ Brotherly Love...

Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Brothers...

We just returned from a weekend get-away to Philadelphia - the City of Brotherly Love.  So of course, this week's theme is all about brothers.  There are lots of portrayals out there - good brothers, mean brothers, crazy brothers and laugh out loud funny brothers.  Here are a few that came to mind.  Share on your blog your selection of movie brothers, linking back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!

  • Dead Ringers (1988) - Jeremy Irons turned in two chilling roles in this movie about evil identical twin gynecologists
  • Stuck on You (2003) - Matt Damon & Greg Kinnear as conjoined twins in a Farrelly Brothers film that was actually not as terrible of a comedy as it sounds
  • The Blues Brothers (1980) - Brothers with soul, on a musical mission from God
  • Slapshot (1977) - Paul Newman was great, but the Hanson brothers stole the show
Do you have a topic to suggest to the Monday Movie Meme? Or would you like to guest host? Let us know in the Comments section or send us an e-mail.

The only one here I didn't see is Dead Ringer. I'll have to check it out. Gosh, the Blues Brothers are just classic.

Oh, The Blues Brothers--a movie with special resonance, not to mention a great soundtrack!
Were there brothers in Good Will Hunting? Can't remember.
Hope you had a great time in Philly.

What a fabulous list! Jake and Elwood are secular idols here in Chicago. The Hansens (and their enduring love of Speed Racer) still make me smile. I agree that Stuck on You was sweet and merry and not at all tasteless (OK, it's a Farrelly Bros movie so it's a little tasteless). And Dead Ringers. EW! ICK! I've only seen it once and will never, ever see it again. It was freaking HORRIFYING! Which means it was successful, right?

I have two sets of movie brothers to add to your list ...

I've heard of the Blues brothers. I have to admit I haven't heard of the rest. I did think of a few I enjoyed watching. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

Loved the Blues Brothers but haven't heard of the others.

I actually thought Stuck on You was very sweet. Of course, I love Matt Damon and will pretty much watch anything with him in it!

The first one that came to mind for me was A River Runs Through It. A sentimental favorite.

Lucy said...
