... you can learn from:
Muriel's Wedding (1994)
Bill: Did Perry interview for the police force yet?
Betty: Yes, but they said he couldn't join
because he was too tall.
This throwaway line in Muriel's Wedding makes me laugh every single time, but that's the thing -- every single line spoken in Muriel's Wedding in a winner. Top to bottom, it's perfect -- every member of the cast, every lie delivery, I literally think it's perfect. On that note yesterday would've been the 80th birthday of the legendary Aussie actor Bill Hunter, who played Bill Heslop aka Muriel's dad aka You Can't Stop Progress (He Lost) and who had a long, esteemed career besides this, but this'll always be the one I'll post about.
