(Not all movies referenced during this challenge are quality films, but I appreciate their witty taglines.)

Answers coming up...

Theater 1: B
Theater 2: A
Theater 3: D
Theater 4: C

How did you do? Have you seen any of the movies? Which one is your favorite? Which tagline is your favorite?

I've only seen two of the four (The Peanuts Movie and Planes, Trains & Automobiles). I hope to see Peter Rabbit soon.

My favorite of the taglines: They are all witty, so it's hard to choose. What he really wanted was to spend Thanksgiving with his family. What he got was three days with the turkey. 

My favorite of the movies: Maybe that's my favorite tagline because Planes, Trains & Automobiles is my favorite of the movies. I caught an edited version on television and laughed myself silly.


  1. The only one of these I've seen was "Planes, Trains and Automobiles," and it wasn't an especially pleasant experience. I watched it with my family, who had seen it about a thousand times and knew it so well they spent the whole time saying "oh, you'll love this, this is a riot!" If they were trying to ruin the experience, they couldn't have done a better job of it.

    1. I wouldn't like that either! Ugh. When I saw it for the first time, I was with some family members who hadn't seen it either so we had a great time laughing together Made the movie even more fun.

  2. I've seen Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. A favorite of mine; classic John Hughes film. Also saw Postcards from the Edge. I think the tagline for that one is the best.

    1. The tagline for Postcards from the Edge -- "wish I were here" -- intrigues me enough to make me want to see the film!

  3. I haven't seen too many of these movies although did see Planes, Trains and Automobiles years ago. I remember it being funny. My favorite tag line from your list is the one from Postcards from the Edge. Weekends In Maine

    1. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is pretty funny. Steve Martin and John Candy. Wonderful comedians. (I miss John Candy!)

  4. Trudy,

    Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is one of our favorites. We watch it every Thanksgiving weekend. We never tire of seeing, either. The other films I wasn't familiar with so I bombed big time on them. Thanks for sharing and for the visit yesterday!

    1. My family uses quotes from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. A favorite, "Those aren't pillows!" Fun times.

  5. Planes, Trains and Automobiles was so funny. I'm thinking I need to see Postcards from the Edge.

    1. Me too! I want to see Postcards from the Edge.
