Name That Movie

**WARNING: Don’t scroll down until you are ready to see the answers!**
When I was young, I used to LOVE playing Name That Movie.
I would play it with cousins, friends… pretty much anyone that would play it with me!
Would you be willing to play it with me?
Let’s try it.  I will quote a line from a movie, and you guess what movie it is from.
The correct answers will be at the very bottom of this post.
Good luck!
“Pile up enough tomorrows and you’ll find you’ve collected a lot of empty yesterdays.”
“Eliza?  Where the devil are my slippers?”
Man 1: “What’s wrong with being rich?”
Man 2:  “It’s no reason to marry.  Money is the world’s curse.”
Man 1:  “May the Lord smite me with it and may I never recover!”
“Why didn’t you tell me to bring along my harmonica?”
“Mother came to us destitute. Brings a child into the world, takes one look at him and promptly dies – -without leaving so much as a forwarding name and address!”

Do you need a hint?
All of them come from musicals.
Sometimes musicals make for long movies, but they are just classics.
I love the songs!
Are you ready for the answers?
Just scroll down….
#1- The Music Man
We have the version with Matthew Broderick in it.  It’s such a great movie!
I love the songs – You Got Trouble, Marian the Librarian, Shipoopi, etc.  Good times.
#2 – My Fair Lady
Audrey Hepburn is wonderful in this movie!
I think it’s so funny when Professor Higgins sings “Why Can’t a Woman be More Like a Man?”
#3 – Fiddler on the Roof
My husband and I love the song “If I Were a Rich Man.”  It’s so hilarious when Tevye sings about how if he were rich he’d have a wife with a proper double chin.
#4 – The Sound of Music
This movie is a family favorite, and it will always remind me of my mom.
Love it.
#5 – Oliver!
This movie will always remind me of my dad.  He sang these songs when he was little.
How many did you get right??
Thanks for playing!

    I’m terrible! I only had one until you said they were all from musicals, then I got one more. Do you have all those musicals? I’d like to watch them again.

    Okay.. I was awful at that. Clearly, musicals aren’t my thing. 🙂 I didn’t get any right.. but I knew the harmonica one sounded familiar. Apparently I need to broaden my movie watching!

    I would have done a lot better if these were Disney movies! I only got the Sound of Music one.

    Such a fun post, Ashlee! My husband and I often play this game to keep each other awake when we are driving late at night! I confess, I didn’t get any of them, but they almost all seemed familiar!

    How about this one: “What do I need manners for? I already got me a wife.” Guessing that will be no trouble! 😉 Hope you all have a great weekend.
