"Daddy, I met a man in Rome. And he's handsome and brilliant and we're getting married."
Do you remember that line? I could recite every line from this movie! I have seen it so many times. It is honestly my favorite movie of all time. George Banks is my father. Or at least he will be when I'm finally engaged. He will be the parent that loses their mind about how I'm too young, and he's (the guy) probably unemployed, and he drives too fast, and wears the wrong shoes. Oh, and he will most definitely despise my wedding planner. But I love my dad, and it's ok if he does act like George Banks.
There are times when my dad and I are together and we will both crack up at me reciting lines from this movie. Below are some of my favorites...
Annie: "He's an independent communications consultant."
George: "Independent? That's code for unemployed."
George: "Don't forget to fasten your condoms! Seatbelts! I mean seatbelts!"
George: "Twelve hundred dollars for a cake? My first car didn't cost that much"
Franck: "Welcome to the nineties, Mr. Banks"
George: "I use to think a wedding was a simple affair. Boy and girl meet, he buys a ring, she buys a dress, they say I do. I was wrong. That's getting married. A wedding is entirely different."
And a few stills from the movie....
"Twelve hundred dollars for a cake?"
"We'll take the cake."
One of my favorites
"Who else can we ask not to eat? My parents? Your mother?"
The one and only
Just after he forgot his line and said 'I do'
This scene is when I fell in love with the song My Girl
Is it really surprising that this is my favorite movie? I mean, come on, there's romance, there's father-daughter love, and there's a wedding! In my opinion it doesn't get any better!
Did you all love this movie as much as I did? Do you have a movie that you hold close to your heart like I do this one?
