Madeline Kahn, Eugene Levy, Elena Pastorello discussed on Live Wire


The host of live wire blue. Oh, my goodness. Thank you, Elena Pastorello. Thanks. Also everybody for tuning in this week. I think it's gonna be a fun show. I can't put my finger on it. I'll tell you later, though, energetically what It feels like There's just something in the air. I am feeling very good this week. I hope all of you out there and listener land are ready for a fun show as well. We have a lot of conversations around the topic of film and cinema this week, and so we thought we would ask the live wire audience the question. What movie have you seen the most times? And why This is like a real kind of you into the personal side of someone because everyone's got a different answer, and it always says something about them. Yeah, and the one the movie that you've seen the most is probably not the movie that you would list is your favorite movie on like a dating profile or the best movie you've ever seen. It's this other weird category of the thing you don't change. Channel When you see it, let me ask you that question. Elena. What movie have you seen the most times. And why clue the movie like from the late seventies? I think it's for the eighties I saw in the theater and I watched it every day, sometimes, like two or three times a day for several years of my youth. Do you watch it sometimes as an adult, because it just is comforting to remind you of your childhood. Yeah, until gifts started, and you know it's a It's a very frequently, especially Madeline Kahn planes the side of my face. This kind of feels like I'm always watching it. But the local theater in Corvallis, which is called the White Side, How to quote along on all my students, and I went to go see it, So I did see it. Then it was everybody there was within, like, three months. Born when I was born. Exactly. There's a lot of people around this country watching that movie at a certain age. Have you seen as it was making impression? I haven't I've seen that Madeline Kahn mean going around, but I don't think I realized what it was a reference to Speaking of local theater, I would say the movie of pricing the most of my life is a spoof of a community theater in the fictional town of Blaine, Missouri, called Waiting for Guffman, which I, It improves my mood, no matter what is going on in my life if I happened to see it, I haven't. I haven't downloaded to my laptop. So sometimes if I'm traveling, and I'm feeling burned out or sad or lonely or whatever. I'll just put on waiting for government and it's just like an immediate improvement and how I'm feeling. I think for me, it's because I actually really can see myself in like every Yeah. Like, uh, Corky, the delusional director of the local theater production, or Ron, the delusional travel agent played by Fred Willard or Dr Pearl, the delusional dentist played by Eugene Levy. I think maybe being delusional is a real through line. In the movie, but also it's like I find the movie to ultimately be so hopeful because this idea that that like what keeps us going in life is a sometimes sort of irrational or misguided optimism, absolute about our chances of something working out and and I just so while the movie cracks me up, I also just feel my It's life affirming for me. Well, I think it's about the theater, too. That's what makes the theater grade is that it's always almost too ridiculous to handle by the way, not the worst musical number. Auras I've ever heard. Don't boo from the back to the booth. What are the library listeners saying are the movies that they've seen the most. And why? Here's one from Kelly Kelly says. I'm embarrassed at how many times I've seen the Kiera Knightley pride and Prejudice. Would you like me to recite it for you? I have a story about that because I was so not excited about that movie that I actually had a dream in which I was yelling at Donald Sutherland for being in that movie, And then I went on a cruise and I did not like being on a cruise. And when you're on there, they just play the same movies on repeat, and I watched Pride and prejudice 150,000 times, and now it is. I think it's excellent. So thank you, Cruz. I have four sisters who are big, big Jane Austen fans, and they just call it printing press like they reference it so often that they don't have they don't have the time to call it pride. And if they just look at you, and they say, printing press, they know what they're talking about. This is the leg Warehouse party. Let's invite our first guest over. She is known for a bunch of different things. She.
