I decided last weekend that the main difference between real life and the movies is not the beautiful people or the witty dialogue or the zombies. It's the spontaneous songs.
And not the spontaneous songs like in Glee or Chicago where it's part of the theatricality. The kind that are actually meant to be part of real life, that always occur in the kitchen, and are meant to show how CHARMING and FUN and WHIMSICAL everyone is. How, despite the fact that they're (GASP!) single, or childless, or clumsy, or old, or wrinkly, or whatever, they're still FUN and enjoy life.
The Scarlet Lily family regular breaks out in dances around the house. Funny dances, often not set to any music of any kind, and I can buy that. I just can't buy the songs.
But I guess if you're a song family, if you REALLY do that, than you need to write me. Because I just don't buy it and I get upset when movies use it to force me to believe that someone is lovable despite their faults. Stop it, Hollywood!
