Sitcoms!

And I like “Frasier’s” closing music (sung by Kelsey Grammer) better than the intro.

    I have had two Confirmation Classes select the theme song from Cheers as one of the songs for their Confirmation service. (The plan is that it is their service to plan – including the songs we sing. I expect this theme song may make it into the church repertoire eventually) It certainly speaks to people’s hearts.

    I can see why it does, jestrfyl. Sometimes I think one of our most powerful and important struggles as humans is the conflict we feel between wanting to be known and accepted and being afraid to risk it. Certainly, that is a theme in many movies because it speaks to us so profoundly.

Horrible Bosses 2
Maybe it's just the proximity to the horrible "Dumb and Dumber To," but the cheerily offensive "Horrible Bosses 2" made me laugh. Full warning -- it begins with an elaborate sight gag as our hapless he

Penguins of Madagascar
The most adorable characters from the first three animated "Madagascar" movies were the penguins, the seldom right but never in doubt leader Skipper (Tom McGrath), the often right but never listened to Kowalski (Chris Miller), the literally explosive Rico (Conrad Vernon), and the ever-loyal Private
