ON MOVIES ~ Party Animals...

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 Parties...

We spent this weekend hanging out with our neighbors at the first BBQ party of the season. Quite early for New England - the weather doesn't usually cooperate until the end of May. So an extra month of sweet weather to celebrate outdoors made me think of movies that focus on parties. Share on your blog your favorite festive flicks, linking back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!


  • Animal House (1978) - The party of all parties - college flunkies having fun in the frats

  • Dazed and Confused (1993) - Epitome of the high school party in the woods with booze, sexual vibes and groovy tunes

  • Bachelor Party (1984) - Tom Hanks (before he was "Tom Hanks") and a donkey in the pre-cursor to The Hangover

  • Gosford Park (2001) - Altman's British folk gathering for a party showing layers from servants to the elite, revealing lots of secrets along the way

  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) - Cross cultural parties are the most entertaining in this Cinderella story

    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.

    Well, hell, Animal House is the Citizen Kane of party movies, isn't it? So while I included my loving tribute to it, I also picked another movie with memorable party scenes.

    That is hilarious...Citizen Kane of party movies! I had to list it too. It would just be wrong otherwise. I did attempt to come up with a few non-traditionals...

    I know it is probably wrong to admit such a thing, but I've never seen Animal House...

    Here's my very tame list

    Gosford Park is one of my all-time favorite movies which I've watched many times and every time I do, I find something that I missed before. It is the perfect British murder mystery....kind of like a much more elegant game of Clue. It doesn't hurt that my favorite actress has a wonderful role...Helen Mirren.
