No monkeys were harmed or humiliated in the making of this movie

More worship thoughts and kids’ CD news coming soon.

In the meantime, I wanted to tell you about a conversation that happened in our house a couple of days ago.

The boys were watching a movie, and it was taking longer than Staci and I had hoped. Bedtime was looming nearer, but we really didn’t want to deal with the chaos of turning off the movie before it was done.

So the brief conversation went like this:
Staci: “Is that movie almost over?”
Me: “I’m not sure. Let me check." I go look at the screen for a few seconds.
Me: “I think it’s close to the end.”
Staci: “How close?”
Me: “Well, a monkey is driving an ice cream truck, and there’s also some small explosions. If that’s not the climax of the story, then this is the best movie ever made.”

There are only two kinds of people who willingly watch movies like this: children and weed-smokers. Weed-smoking monkeys, like the one above, would love it.

Bonus points if you can name the movie.

If, by chance, it wasn't the end of the movie and it is indeed the best film ever me and my netflix queue can't wait to hear the name!

Air Bud: Golden Receiver

You can find the scene here:

Do I win?

I think it's called "Dunston Checks rehab".

Sounds like every episode of "B.J. & The Bear"

The Notebook? I've never seen it but I'm guessing that's why all the ladies love that movie so much. I mean, what could be better than the previously described scene?

I was thinking it sounded like the "Lancelot Link Movie"
If you're a fan of monkeys, you would LOVE the old TV show Lancelot Link. I don't want to spoil it by describing it. Find it. Watch it. Love it.
