Theater Thursday

It's Theater Thursday! What's Theater Thursday? Well it's a day (always Thursday) that you can pick out a movie that you love or something that you think others should watch that's out on dvd. Grab the Theater Thursday button, post about your movie choice and then come back here and link up! That way everyone will have some great movie ideas and choices going into the weekend. 

This week's featured movie is, Dutch
Dutch is a hilarious movie that takes place over Thanksgiving. Since that's next week, what a great time to watch it! Ed O'Neill stars in this 1991 comedy as a meat-and-potatoes construction worker. Who attempts to stay firmly in his girlfriend's good graces... by retrieving her preppy son from boarding school in time for Thanksgiving. He has to go all the way from Chicago down to Georgia to retrieve him. Little does Dutch (O'Neill) know that Doyle (Ethan Embry)  is a 12 year old nightmare. 

Doyle is stuck up, sarcastic and feels entitled to whatever he wants when he wants it. Basically he's your basic nightmare and to Dutch he's going to keep him busy all the way to Chicago. He doesn't want to spend the holiday with his mother and just really wants to see his father who's mega rich and has divorced his mom. He feels that Dutch coming to get him is a sign that his mother is getting serious with another man. So he takes it upon himself to show how much of a nightmare he can actually be. 

Will they both make it back to Chicago for Thanksgiving in time? Better yet... will they even make it back in one piece? Watch this great 90's holiday film to find out. Ed O'Neill definitely keeps you laughing that's for sure!

I have never seen this, but who doesn't love a little Al Bundy every once in a while. :)

I meant to create a post for the movie we watched last weekend, but then I forgot. :( It was surprisingly with Zac Efron in it again...I had no clue he was in the movie till it started, lol.
