Today I'm supposed to blog about a favorite movie. I really love to watch movies when I get the chance. Some of my favorite movies are, The Lord of The Rings trilogy, Seabiscuit, Love Actually, Toy Story 3, Pirates of the Carribean and Napoleon Dynamite. This is just to name a few! I also love old movies like Gone with the Wind and Breakfast at Tiffany's and musicals like Chicago and Grease.

One movie that I figured I would write about today, since most people probably haven't even heard of it is Waiting for Guffman. This movie is a documentary style comedy about a small town theater group. It takes the viewer from Auditions to the performance of the show. It is cleverly acted and "written" I say that in quotes because some of the scenes are completley improvised. I think it is a movie that not everyone will "get" or like. It was funnier the second time I watched it, the first time I watched it I didn't know what to expect and so I was caught off guard. Here is a scene from the movie so you can sort of see what I mean.

and, just cuz, here's some Napolean Dynamite :)
