Im gonna throw Parenthood in here...

The movie is great, ive watched many many times in the past 8 years at least.

The one thing that always sticks out of that movie is The Grandma, the oldest lady, shes so unbelievably old and shes kinda lost it, but shes really smart on the inside. Im referring to the speech/monologue she states about the Rollercoaster, comparing it to a merry go round, in turn comparing them to life.

[Gil has been complaining about his complicated life; Grandma wanders into the room]

Grandma: You know, when I was nineteen, Grandpa took me on a roller coaster.

Gil: Oh?

Grandma: Up, down, up, down. Oh, what a ride!

Gil: What a great story.

Grandma: I always wanted to go again. You know, it was just so interesting to me that a ride could make me so frightened, so scared, so sick, so excited, and so thrilled all together! Some didn't like it. They went on the merry-go-round. That just goes around. Nothing. I like the roller coaster. You get more out of it.

Karen: I happen to think your grandma is brilliant!

Gil: Oh Yeah, if shes so brilliant, why is she sitting in our neighbors car?!

I have a feeling the new movie with Jim Carey (The Number 23) is going to be pretty bad; he's too much of a nutty actor to do serious horror thriller roles, IMO.

Robin Williams has done a fairly decent job of freaking me out with his creepy roles...it will be interesting to see how Carey does.
