Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

November 24, 2010

“Hey, it’s not like the lumberjack look will ever go out; it won’t.  But just once, wouldn’t it be nice not to be dressed like an extra in ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers?'” – 1.20

I love musicals.  I’m excited about this one, even though I’m pretty sure it’s going to be one of those lame musicals that they make kids in high school do because it’s the most wholesome choice.  But it takes place in Oregon and I used to live there, so it’s all good.

  1. I really hope this is one of those movies where the male chauvinist lead meets a tough woman who shows him women can think for themselves…
  2. Oh look, a woman who chops wood and milks cows and jokes around with the men…just what I was looking for.
  3. You might want to tell your bride that she’s not only going to be taking care of you, but also your 6 brothers…it might change things.
  4. That’s a lot of red-headed men in one room.
  5. A man wants a wife who can work alongside him?  That’s what they want?  All this time…I never knew.
  6. So apparently all you have to do to make rowdy men behave is make them eat breakfast in the nude.  Good to know.
  7. Do NOT call a woman “my pet.”  Don’t listen to Millie, boys.  That will get you slapped.
  8. So…where’s Adam during all this?  Millie’s spending all her time with his brothers…That could be trouble.
  9. I think I would dance more if they were all choreographed like waltzes.  I can dance if someone tells me exactly how to.  Plus, back then, the girls didn’t have to do much.
  10. Aw, I want to win the little cow.
  11. Wow, those guys are really mean.  Throwing hammers, hitting them with 2 by 4’s…
  12. It’s one thing not to start fights, but if a guy threw a hammer in my face, I’d probably throw a punch or two.  Although I probably wouldn’t fight so much that I would destroy a barn.
  13. “One woman’s pretty much like the next.”  Wow.  Millie is seriously regretting marrying him.
  14. There’s gotta be more stuff to do in the wilderness than just chop wood.
  15. Is he telling them to kidnap women?
  16. Yep.  He’s telling them to kidnap women.
  17. Well, lock 7 women alone in a house for months…there’s gonna be a cat fight.
  18. I’m really glad I never had such high hopes for what happens after you get married.  That’s just a major letdown.
  19. Adam’s kind of a d-bag.  Being upset about her having a girl instead of a boy?  Wow.
  20. Have any of these people ever heard of Stockholm’s Syndrome?

Well, that was silly.  But I do love musicals.
