I love this movie! I can watch it over and over and always find something new. This movie is kinda like Facebook. The main character, Jimmy Stewart, watches his neighbors all day cause he is stuck at home and bored. We don't have to do that anymore...we just get on Facebook and check every one's status.
As if yummy food and drinks were not enough Alohaknitter made up a murder mystery game. Each of us would draw out a slip of paper. One slip would have 'Killer' written on it and all the others would have various ways for us to die....such as 'fall from chair, choke to death, or die dramatically'. The Killer would 'kill us' by winking at us. We would die but we couldn't tell anyone else who had killed us....they would have to guess. We got very creative as the night wore on. Some of us died from consumption (ketchup in a Kleenex), knitting needle to the neck, falling down stairs, SCREAMING or being shot to death.
We were having a lot of fun with this game and then someone brought up dreams and Alohaknitter said the night before she had dreamed there was a bat in the house. She woke up and wasn't sure if she had REALLY seen a bat or if it had all been a dream. We all laughed and told her it was just a dream and not to worry...expect for All Natural Mama who HATES bats! She was not amused.
So, with the dream forgotten we all were watching the movie when Esther says, 'There is a bat in the house.' She said it very calmly and we didn't pay that much attention. She then said it two more times. We were all a little jaded at this point and thought maybe she was trying to 'scare someone to death'. Then all of a sudden I SEE A BAT! in the dining room!!! I screamed 'THERE REALLY IS A BAT!!' All hell broke loose at this point.
All Natural Mama dove OVER Cheryl and between Andi's legs to get under a chair. I've never seen anything like it. Esther jumps up, grabs a bag, and goes after the bat! We couldn't believe it! All Natural Mama, myself and Nikki all make it to the front porch. We turn around and watch Esther, through the safety of the glass door, chasing the bat with a tote bag. (All Natural Mama is in the street at the point.) Nikki and I decide we HAVE to get this on camera so we run back in.
