The 3rd one was on last weekend. His wife totally changed, and his son looked to be in his late teens/early twenties, yet Brendan Fraser didn't look any older than he did in the first one!!

You'd think he'd notice that his wife had changed, wouldn't you? :mrgreen:


I thought they covered that up quite well with the book reading scene early on :lol:


Didn't see all the movie, just from when they brought the Chinese geezer back to life, then I switched over. Last time I saw the kid, he was about 11!!

it does take place 13 years later.



Woman in Bookstore: [This dialog - in an apparent nod and wink to the change of actress for the character from prior films in "The Mummy" series - accompanies the first appearance of Evelyn O'Connell] Mrs. O'Connell, is it true that the Scarlet O' Kiefe character is based on you?

Evelyn O'Connell: No. I can honestly say she is a completely different person.

Almost posted that myself,absolutely love The Blues Brothers.
Although for accuracy's sake here's the full line... :P
(Preceded by :
"It's 106 miles to Chicago.")

"We've got a full tank of gas,half a pack of cigarettes,it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses."

(Followed by Jake to Elwood :
"Hit it!")

Another very favourite one-liner and scene is this one:
Jake :
"I hate Illinois nazis."

I just love it when the lead nazi sticks out his chest as if nothing will move them and all it takes to change his mind a millisecond later is the sound of Elwood giving it some gas(go Elwood!). :lol:

Oh well, you know, the Blues Brothers... another of those movies that practically every line could be quoted.

"You swapped the caddy for a microphone!? <pause> OK... I can see that." - Jake

"Are you the police?"
"No Ma'am, were musicians." - Elwood

"You want out of this parking lot?" - Elwood

"Excuse me have you got a miss Piggy?" - shopper

Ray Charles - "Breaks my heart a boy like that going bad"

"I don't think there's anything wrong with the action on this piano"

"OK man, well take these axes" - Jake
"And as usual I gotta take an I.O.U." - Ray
Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change? ~~ Oddball

Sounds like a conversation me and the sound engineer hubby had many many years ago. :lol: :lol: Substitute "Valiant" for "Caddy" and you pretty much have the picture. :roll:

Thing was...... He did an aussie tour with the Blues Brothers Revival Band. :lol: :lol: They were invited by Dan Aykroyd to come perform at his club in Canada (I think it was Canada) but I had just got pregnant so he didn't go.

A couple from The Big Lebowski;

That rug really tied the room together.

Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes, well, he eats you.

Walter, I love you, but sooner or later you're going to have to face the fact you're a goddamn moron.

Groucho Marx Quotes :

1. Room service? Send up a larger room.
2. I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
3. I didn't like the play, but then I saw it under adverse conditions - the curtain was up.
4. The husband who wants a happy marriage should learn to keep his mouth shut and his chequebook open.
5. Military intelligence is a contradiction in terms.
6. He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot, but don't let that fool you. He really is an idiot.
7. Look, if you don't like my parties, you can leave in a huff. If that's too soon, leave in a minute and a huff. If you can't find that, you can leave in a taxi.
8. How do you feel about women's rights? I like either side of them.
9. From the moment I picked your book up until I put it down I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.
10. I don't have a photograph, but you can have my footprints. They're upstairs in my socks.
