Instead of the uninspired postings of the trailer for MOTHER’S DAY, clips from MOMMIE DEAREST, or the
tried tired and true MR. T MOTHER’S DAY RAP, I thought I’d go a little more personal this year and highlight some trailers from a handful of films my mom and I watched together at the dollar theater back when I was a boy.
REAR WINDOW (1954)
FOUL PLAY (1978)
9 TO 5 (1980)
SEEMS LIKE OLD TIMES (1980)
QUEST FOR FIRE (1981)
SWAMP THING (1982)
ALL OF ME (1984)
(Damn, that Lily Tomlin sure was a hot commodity back in the 80s!)
God knows I couldn’t bear to sit in a theater with my mother for an hour and a half these days…but we sure had some great times back then! And the best part was she never once complained about having to sit through any of the movies I picked…I’m sure you can guess which ones those were.
