It's time for this week's Thursday Movie Picks! This has been such a fun project to be a part of, and as another month begins, we leave a month behind, so let's refresh our memories at the previous posts for this particular series.
Dance Movies (excluding all musicals or movies based on musicals)
Black & White Movies (made since 1970)
Work. UGH. I won't say I hate my job, but I don't love it. I do it because I have to. I have a family. I don't have a choice, at this point. ANYWAYS...I chose three very different films here because they all make me happy in varying ways. One is a classic comedy from the 60's, one is a crude outlandish comedy from the 90's and one is the first modern masterpiece of the current decade (first, not the most recent). Oh, and it's not a comedy (although there is humor).
Wilder + Lemmon + MacLaine + Innuendo = Perfection!
I'm not lying when I say that this is one of the funniest movies of all time. Every time...EVERY TIME, I laugh my ass off!

Yup, the first official masterpiece of the 2010's! It still holds. It's still glorious. It's still intense and sarcastic and etched into every scene. It's not the best film of the aughts, but it's the first great one.
