I've-Got-Nothing-Else-to-Post-About Pie

It's cute and tart and all those things, but Waitress was most successful with inspiring in me a deep, predatorial desire for pie. Any kind of pie really, as long as it consisted of a crust and a filling. I not only wanted to eat pie; I wanted to make pie. I saw Waitress on Saturday and I haven't had pie yet. I want pie. I want to make pie.

I'm trying to think of other movies that've triggered a craving. Chocolat, of course. The Contender really makes me want a shark steak sandwich, even though I've never had one and I hate seafood. Do the Right Thing makes me want pizza. Sleeping Beauty makes me want cake. What about you?

Well, I have to say that my father-in-law -- the Colonel -- makes the best apple pies around, and he does so at the drop of the hat.

But the movie that makes me salivate? Easy: Big Night. After that, I just want to gorge on amazing Italian food.

middento, i don't know this colonel you speak of, but i also know a colonel. he does not make pies.

many movies/plays make me want to drink rather than eat. i want to drink brandy, scotch, anything like that. wine, cheese. usually i just drink beer alone at home until i can't even see the movie i'm watching anymore and then it's over when i wake up...

beedow -- Heh, mine is actually a former colonel, come to think of it, since he retired. And he started making pies after leaving the military.

Grading papers about movies makes me drink.
