Books are the topic for this week's Monday movie meme and The Bumbles says it's not about movies made from books, so there goes my bid for “Eat, Pray, Love” but let's move on. Instead, this week topic is focused on blogging about movies that feature books, librarians or related subjects....you get the drift, right? So, I immediately thought about that scene in “Men of Honor” where Cuba Gooding Jr. gets a med student who works in a library to help him with his exams for the Navy. Then I thought... “hmmm, that's just one isolated scene, so this movie is not going to work” and then I recalled a comedy that is oh, so fitting for this week's “bookish” movie theme.....
A few week's ago, I published a post on here about actress Lauren Graham and her Julia Robert's complex and well, she starred in “The Answer Man” with Jeff Daniels (who, at first glance, I had confused with the guy from “7th Heaven” until I realized that Steven Collins is not listed as being in this movie....hey, what do I know? I only watched “The Answer Man” once some time ago)
The Answer Man is about a reclusive best-selling author who falls in love with his chiropractor but finds his reputation and love life in jeopardy as he must accept the reality of not having all the answers to the world's most pressing issues.
What are Your favorite (or not-so-favorite) “Bookish” movies?
