Earl's Favorite Film Scenes: Vol. XI

I haven't done one of these in well over a year. How is that possible?

Anyway, I was thinking about Moonstruck the other day. Gia and I consider it a classic. Just so funny with such great performances. We disagree about Olympia Dukakis. I think she was fantastic, while Gia didn't really buy her as the matriarch of the family. But we do agree that she is in many of the great scenes from the film. Mostly filmed in the household kitchen.

So, naturally, I picked a clip from the film that doesn't feature her. See? I'm whimsical that way.

The bakery scene/introduction to Nic Cage's character has become one of my favorite scenes of all-time. I remember not being able to stand Cage in this film when I first saw it. But he grew on me, like a cancerous mole. And this scene, in particular, is one that lets him fly his freak flag in a glorious way.

Enjoy!


Bring me the big knife!

Holly - He has become a caricature of himself. Maybe he always was and we just didn't notice because the films were better. I dunno.
