<b>Tony:</b> [to Peter] So, this is how an immature, engaged, high school idiot, with no car, no job, and no money try to become a hero.<p/><b>Peter:</b> That was like eight burns in one sentence<p/><b>Wade:</b> An octo-burn.<p/></p>
OK, I'm annoyed. I saw a post a few days ago that said that people shouldn't be upset by the fact that Emma Watson is auto tuned in Beauty and the Beast because all movie musicals are auto tuned.
So, this is one of the many reasons the casting of a big name celebrity with little to no musical theatre experience bothers me so much. Audiences are starting to think that in order to be in a musical, signing talent is not a necessity.
Also, this person obviously hasn’t seen a musical that was made before the year 2000. Really, even later than that! More like, anything before 2010.
Here’s a homework assignment for this weekend. Don’t worry it’s easy. Look up:
Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald:
In watching some videos of these wonderful people, you will see how much work goes into the craft of musical theatre and movie musicals.
And, it bears mentioning, that at the time, these actors were “big names” and they were box office draws based on their singing and dancing talent. I’m all for bringing that back. If Hollywood wants to keep making movie musicals, then let’s bring back the movie musical star!
<b>Peter:</b> Wade, I don't know if you should come over to dinner tonight.<p/><b>Wade:</b> Look, I know you think it's gonna be uncomfortable because we're dating. But, look, Steve and Tony love you, and you love me. They have to like me. I mean, what kind of father doesn't love the guy who's nailing his son?<p/></p>
<b>Peter:</b> Dad when you and dad got into an argument, did you ever... You know...<p/><b>Tony:</b> What?<p/><b>Peter:</b> Have you ever... Stopped having sex with dad in order to win an argument?<p/><b>Tony:</b> You can do that?<p/><b>Peter:</b> Yeah, but...<p/><b>Tony:</b> You mean that if I stop having sex with your father, he'll paint the bathroom?<p/><b>Peter:</b> Yeah, but aren't you worried about how it can hurt the relationship?<p/><b>Tony:</b> Blah, blah, blah. I don't care. I'm getting my bathroom painted.<p/></p>
