Prairie Home Companion

Post by Jonathan » Tue Jun 13, 2006 9:30 am

This is one of the best movies I've seen this year. No, it isn't a horror or action movie. It's not a high budget blockbuster. But a great movie none the less.

The acting is perfect. The script and story line is perfect. And the music makes it. I doubt I'm the only one that grew up to my parents playing records of that kind of music. It's like a combination of gospel and bluegrass with quite a bit of comedy. Truly moving. Woody Harrison and John Reilly's duo singing bout gave me a heart attack I was laughing so hard. Kevin Kleines charactor was pretty damn funny as well.

I recommend this movie to anyone that needs to cleanse their pallet from the abundance of blockbuster films being released lately.

Also, we saw this movie at a small theatre at the bottom of Queen Anne, the same place we saw Good Night And Good Luck. So that theatre is 2 for 2...

Some of the cast:

Meryl Streep
Lily Tomlin
Garrison Keillor
Woody Harrelson
Tommy Lee Jones
Kevin Kline
Lindsay Lohan
Virginia Madsen
John C. Reilly
Maya Rudolph
Take a picture, trick. I'm on a boat, bitch.

Yes!! Definitely a positive review from us!! I went for the cast, and what an amazing cast it is, but the music made me shiver! Great story, perfect acting (lily and meryl are a great duo as is Woody and John, and Maya Rudolph is funny just standing there) and wonderful, passionate music all performed by the actors.


Great cleansing and a great escape.

I haven't seen anything about this, really, beyond the posters at the local art house. Is this similar to the NPR show? I catch that every now and then and it's usually funny in a really lame way.

Does Guy Noir make an appearance at all?

YUP! He's the narrator. Total dipshit, in a funny way.
