Maybe my family is just wierd, but it's gotten to the point where someone has a laptop open almost every time we watch a movie.
Typical example --- We watched Cinderella Man the other night....
"Who's that playing Braddock's manager? I've seen him in something else...."
"Just a second...Oh that's Paul Giamatti; You know, he was "Miles" in Sideways..." <snicker>
"Max Baer...Why does that name sound so familiar?"
"Because Max Baer Jr. --his son --was "Jethro" on The Beverly Hillbillies."
"Oh, OK. Well "Jethro" seemed like a nice guy in real life....At least that's how he came off in interviews."
"Wikipedia says this movie has drawn criticism for it's protrayel of his father. Apparently Baer Sr. wasn't like this....."
"Baer was part Jewish. He boxed Max Schmelling wearing a Star of David on his trunks." <snicker>
"Braddock was a real character then?"
"Hell yes....He was champion from '35 to '37. Lost it to Joe Louis....."
I don't know. ----Maybe this would drive other families crazy, but the internet's become an integral part of movie watching here in my house. How about you?
