Like most mothers, I’m sure, as my son speeds toward high school graduation and leaving the nest and all that, I have but one regret: I haven’t shared enough screen time togetherness with him. Sure, we’ve watched all of The Office, several times at this point, and as much of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia as I can bear, but we haven’t even scratched the surface of Movies of My Youth. That’s why I was delighted to read that Netflix started streaming Young Frankenstein on June 1.
It’s a funny movie. And it’s also full of my own high school memories. I remember that it seemed so edgy that they shot it in black and white (and it was, according to this Mental Floss listicle). Everyone in it was the coolest and the funniest. Sigh…..and enjoy!
