Watching Grown-Up Movies With Mom and Dad

Ane just finished reading “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley for English class.  (Definitely not a book she would have picked on her own.)

So, we figured that as a reward for getting through the book, she should sit down and watch “Young Frankenstein” with us.  She had seen bits and pieces, but never the full movie straight through.

The biggest laughs from Ane’s perspective:
– finding the private library with the “How I Did It” book
– the scene with the blind man (she did a double take when we mentioned she knew who the actor was, and then she cracked up)
– the “Puttin’ on the Ritz” dance sequence

I do think she thinks her parents have a warped sense of humor, though.

And happy birthday to Great-Grandma!  We love you so much!
