Lazy Hazy Sundays

God I love Sundays! Well now with my new job I love every other Sunday (I work on a magazine that goes to press every other week so I work the alternate Sundays). The non-working Sundays I love.

I remember growing up and waking up Sunday mornings to watch Abbott and Costello or Laurel and Hardy movies - they always seem to be 10 min short of the full hour so they would end the hour with a Courageous Cat & Minute Mouse cartoon. As I got older I remember watching movies like "Planet of the Apes" or a Hitchcock film with my dad.

Now almost 20 years later I like to do two extremes on my Sunday 1) go out to brunch and drink all day or 2) veg on the couch and recover from my Friday and Saturday nights out. Today I was somewhat productive and cleaned my room, did my laundry and ended the evening right with some take out and a good film. I decided to share my top 5 movies to watch on a lazy hazy Sunday (top 5 lists courtesy of "High Fidelity" the book I am currently reading).

TOP 5 Sunday Movies:

1. Wonder Man (the movie I watched tonight. I really love Danny Kaye movies it was a toss between this one and The Five Pennies but today I was feeling Wonder Man.)

2. Almost any John Hughes movie although Sixteen Candles is my favorite. JAKE!

3. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is a good choice if you suffer from a case of the munchies or PMS. Did anyone besides Sean find the Oompa Loompa's scary? (Oh and did you know that Tim Burton is doing a remake?)

4. The Commitments unlike most things Irish I actually love this movie (and it's not because there are two scenes in it where they cast is at my favorite pizza place. R.I.P. Fat Freddy's Pizzeria I miss you!)

5. The fifth one is turning out to be a hard one. I was thinking Animal House but thought I had the teen movie already with Sixteen Candles. I guess today I am going to go with A Life Less Ordinary just because Ewan McGregor is really cute singing Beyond the Sea.

Alternate movies which someday may make the top five include Rebel Without a Cause (just for Jimmy), LOTR (cause according to my friends I am a geek) and The Pit cause it RAWKS!
