GhostBusters! Of course! Or Dory, if she is lost!
My dear readers, the Captain and I love love love movies! And we went to two movies over the past week-end.
“Finding Dory” and “Ghostbusters”!
We wanted something funny…no drama.
That is why we chose lighthearted movies to watch on Saturday and on Sunday.
I have to tell you both movies made us laugh….and laughing just makes you feel good, doesn’t it?
We laughed at Dory and all the other fish in the sea, especially Hank.
And we laughed when we recognized actors from the previous “Ghostbusters” movie in cameo roles, in the movie of the same name….we nudged each other and laughed again!
First up was the movie “Finding Dory”!
In my opinion, the “Finding Dory” storyline was as great as the first movie.
I simply love the “baby” fishes and we get to see adorable Dory as a baby in flashbacks.
The actors whose voices are featured…. are below:
And although she is not pictured above…Sigourney Weaver, who, ironically is also featured in the “Ghostbusters” movie…her voice is also featured in “Finding Dory”.
The story line plot goes like this: Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) is a wide-eyed, blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every 10 seconds or so. The one thing she can remember is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child. With help from her friends Nemo and Marlin, Dory embarks on an epic adventure to find them. Her journey brings her to the Marine Life Institute, a conservatory that houses diverse ocean species. Dory now knows that her family reunion will only happen if she can save mom and dad from captivity.
I loved all the characters, but I laughed the most at Hank, the Octopus who is able to morph into any structure’s color, which provides a lot of laughs when the credits roll. Reminds me of the antics of the Pink Panther Movies. Hank’s voice is Ed O’Neil from the old “Married With Children” and “Modern Family” TV sitcoms. Fun stuff.
The premise of “Ghostbusters” is pretty much the same as the original “Ghostbusters” movie, except the cast is all women.
The storyline plot goes like this: Paranormal researcher Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) and physicist Erin Gilbert are trying to prove that ghosts exist in modern society. When strange apparitions appear in Manhattan, Gilbert and Yates turn to engineer Jillian Holtzmann for help. Also joining the team is Patty Tolan, a lifelong New Yorker who knows the city inside and out. Armed with proton packs and plenty of attitude, the four women prepare for an epic battle as more than 1,000 mischievous ghouls descend on Times Square.
There are so many one-liners and gags, that one has to be on alert to catch all of them. The Captain and I laughed all through this movie.
I especially liked the receptionist who answered the phone for these ladies. Let us just say he was quite handsome but a bit “ditzy”
There are appearances of the famous marshmallow man and the green glob that slimmed everyone….but I am sure if you see this movie, you will also be looking for the original actors in their cameo roles.
And listen for the famous line….”I ain’t afraid of no ghosts”!
I would like to know if you have seen these two movies and if so, what are your comments?
Have a great and Blessed Tuesday and be sure to laugh today…or at least smile!
