Why have I never seen this movie?

I love all of Wes Anderson's movies; Bill Murray is one of my favorite actors and the movie came out thirteen years ago. I've had it sitting on my desk, a rental from Netflix for well over a month. I watched it with Sophie last night and loved every minute of its rollicking weirdness. The soundtrack was awesome, as well. I can't even remember how long it's been since I've heard this song and practically jumped off the couch when it came on. My favorite part is around 1:08 when the drums go, there's some jangling and a pick-up in the voices and it sounds rocking and innocent and wailing all at once.


  1. Love this movie. Have seen it a dozen times and it always makes me happy. Saw it in the theater with my Dad when it first came out. A great respite from a hard time.

  2. I need to watch it again. It's been too long.
    And you know I love that song.
    Thank-you, dearheart.

  3. I love quirky movies. I'm guessing there's quirk in this one - haven't seen it tho. Have you ever seen Everything is Illuminated? Or Danny Deck Chair? Or Benny and June?

  4. Oh I haven't seen that in ages! Loved it - thanks for the reminder. (though I will say I love Royal Tenenbaums a smidge more - must be the adidas sweatsuits).

  5. Putting it on my Netflix list immediately! I, too, love Wes Anderson and had not heard of this! My personal fave is The Life Aquatic, and I cannot WAIT to watch this one - thank you!
