Todays Christmas Movie is Lethal Weapon. Now some of you might say that this movie isn’t a Christmas movie, but according to me, you are wrong. It takes place around the Christmas holiday and there is Christmas music playing in the movie. Maybe it’s not a traditional Christmas Movie but I usually watch it before Christmas.
Roger Murthaugh (Danny Glover), is a cop that just turned 50 gets a new partner, Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) a cop that lost his wife and now is suicidal. They are completely opposites, but now they have to solve a murder of Amanda Hunsaker, a prostitute thats also the daughter of one of Murtaughs old Vietnam War friends, Michael Hunsaker. The murderinvestigation quickly turns in to a case about drug smugglers and soon both Riggs and Murthaghs lifes are in danger, inlucing Murthaghs familys.
And the most famous quote from the movie is:
“I’m too old for this shit” ~ Roger Murthaugh
My husband and I watched the movie the other day. And as he always says when we watch it: This is not a Christmas Movie. So we agree to disagree.
Hope you have a wonderful Friday!
