Is there a movie out there that you could watch repeatedly? The jokes don’t get old? No matter if you know the next scene about to come but instead you are waiting for it so you can just laugh out loud? My latest love is “Despicable Me”. I can not even begin to count how many times I have seen this movie. The fact that it was In Demand on my cable was bad enough but now my son owns a copy. He had seen it so many times through me he is in love with it as I am.  It is good clean fun and no matter what part of the movie is playing, if I am walking by the couch will have a new buddy. I will be honest this movie was not watched when it first came out. But now that it has entered my life, last six months, it gets watched daily.

Now that might seem excessive to watch the same movie every single day. Well there’s a catch. Our birdie Jasper, the one pictured on this blog, has fallen in love with the yellow minions from the movie. My son and I both agree they make this film work. Jasper will slide down the rail, onto the couch and get comfortable in front of the tv so he can watch his movie. Please don’t walk in front of him. And whatever you do, DO NOT SIT DOWN IN FRONT OF HIM. Oh my gosh talk about a bird who will have a hissy fit.

This is a picture of him getting riled up when I walked in front of him while he was watching the movie. He ruffled his feathers to hurry me along.

This is when I was talking to him during the movie. He totally ignored me in hopes I would shut up so he could get back to the show.

Jasper absolutely loves this movie. In fact as I type up this blog he is situated at the corner of the couch watching “Despicable Me”. He laughs at the same spots we do and at spots we don’t. It is comical to find out what he thinks is funny or not.

We have corrupted our green buddy and he likes it. They are making a sequel that comes out next summer. Hopefully the people in charge do it justice. I suspect if they do a copy will make its way home for my family to enjoy for a long time.

Until then the spot on the couch will get a little more worn out from where Jasper sits to watch this film.


Other shows he likes to watch are:

SpongeBob SquarePants

Scooby- Doo- But not the ones with Scrabby-Doo. My bird is smart.

How To Train Your Dragon

  1. I love movies, but I tend to seldom watch them more than once, and when I do it is because my husband and/or son are watching them…Despicable me is so funny and I have enjoyed that more than once. My cousin Vinny is such a funny movie and the Fifth Element is a very cool flick I love Sci Fi.
    Very fun Post, the best for me was the bird and its movie loving attitude!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Jasper should learn to sing the Minions’ “ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-na-na” song from the trailer of Despicable Me 2. Would be too funny!

    Our St. Bernard is especially fond of horse training videos. He’ll run from anywhere in the house to park in front of the TV (where he makes a better door than a window) and watch for hours.

    Movies that I could happily watch every day: The Princess Bride, Monty Python & the Holy Grail, Dirty Dancing, How to Train Your Dragon, and Ladyhawke. Oh, and the original Twilight because BFF & I have developed a hilarious interactive audience participation script that makes us laugh ourselves senseless *every time.*

    Jasper looks like he’s having a blast! 😀

    1. We have How To Train Your Dragon on dvr for him. He has not figured out what the hell those things are. That is so funny Ami, our animals we can learn a lot from. Now I need to get that trailer and play it for Jasper maybe he will learn it. LOL
