... you can learn from:
My Stepmother is an Alien (1988)
Celeste: The subject says he will be unable
to think about science unless he marries me.
Council Chief: Well, marry him.
Celeste: But we don't know what "marry" is.
Council Chief: One moment. ... Ah, yes.
The Monchine Forty says marriage is this:
he goes off to fight the Turks, and you put on a lock.
Second in Command: No, no, no.
Council Chief: Oh, yes, yes. Wrong century. Eh...
marriage is this: you cook and clean and bring him martinis.
Second in Command: No, no!
Council Chief: Wrong again? Ridiculous... Yes. Wrong decade.
Too old-fashioned. Ah, here we are, yes. The modern marriage:
there are no rules or responsibilities, but if he does something
wrong, you can set him on fire while he sleeps and go on a
talk show, where everyone will forgive you and love you.
There is only one drawback: you will have to have more sex.
Celeste: I'll do it!
I know I saw this movie when I was a kid but I'll be damned if I remember a single thing about it. But with dialogue like this somebody's due for a re-watch! Anyway a happy 64th birthday to Kim Basinger. The only correct answer if I ask you what Kim Basinger's best role was is LA Confidential right? So what's her second best? 8 Mile? Nobody say Vicki Vale, please.
