Episode 178 Transcript:

Emma: You’re listening to the Lovely Mass Podcast, your cozy consolation pay attention. This week we’re dissecting a favourite Consolation watch film for decor and residential inspiration. That is an ongoing sequence for us, and this week’s choice is Father of the Bride, 1991, and Nancy Myers Basic. It’s a must to say what 12 months as a result of it’s a remake, which I don’t assume I noticed after I first watched it as a result of I’ve really by no means seen the unique. So that might be a enjoyable one to do too. Which wouldn’t be a re-watch for me, it could be a primary watch.

Elsie: It’s constructed from a film from 1950. After which additionally it was remade like final 12 months there was a Robert DeNiro father of the bride that you just watched. I didn’t see it however I keep in mind you instructed me about it.

Emma: Sure, I watched it with my husband and he liked it much more than I did, I believe, and we each liked it. It’s so cute. 

Elsie: Nicely, I can not wait to get to Father of the bride. I believe we’ll in all probability do a separate episode sometime sooner or later for half two, which is the like they’re having infants. They’re each so good, I can’t choose which one I like extra, I like them each equal. 

Emma: Yeah, I in all probability like them each equally, however they’re totally different. I like them for various causes. I really feel like Diane Keaton will get extra time in the second and I actually like that. She’s nice on this one too, however I don’t know. Anyway, for those who’ve by no means seen this one, we’ll inform you just a little bit in regards to the plot. You can even Google it, however primarily it facilities round George Banks, performed by Steve Martin, who’s a father. His daughter form of rapidly and unexpectedly will get engaged and he’s having a tough time letting her develop up, and that’s type of what’s occurring in his life. So he’s the daddy of the bride they usually determine to have the marriage at their home, of their yard. And he’s coping with his daughter rising up, accepting this younger man who’s gonna be a son-in-law paying for the marriage and form of all of the like humorous little, you already know, properly I’m the daddy of the bride, I gotta pay for, you already know, all these form of, I believe just a little bit quaint, however I additionally perceive it. 

Elsie: He’s received this enormous quantity of complaining in regards to the worth of the marriage and cash, which may be very cute. And yeah, similar to Steve Martin having his like freak-out scenes, there’s a really iconic scene the place he begins ripping up the hotdog bun bundle as a result of he solely desires the identical variety of hotdogs and hotdog buns. And I imply, I simply must say upfront, this film brings out my Steve Martin crush like no different. It’s actually intense for some cause on this film. I believe it’s one in all his greatest healthful film performances. I’ve all the time liked Steve Martin. We at the moment watch Solely Murders and I like him a lot, it doesn’t matter what, and Martin Quick as properly. However this film, there’s one thing about it, it’s prefer it was written for, you understand how typically they write a film only for the actor. I didn’t see that within the trivia, however I really feel like they in all probability didn’t actually think about plenty of different actors apart from Steve Martin. He’s excellent. 

Emma: Yeah. I don’t know however he’s excellent at this. 

Elsie: So do you may have any reminiscences from the primary time you watched? I don’t, I don’t keep in mind the primary time I watched it. 

Emma: I don’t, I keep in mind rewatching it in all probability like 5 or 6 years in the past and my ideas then, however I don’t assume that was the primary time I noticed it, I doubt it, however it might have been. However one factor I keep in mind pondering was like, oh wow, narration as a result of it actually opens with plenty of. It actually nearly seems like a ebook as a result of Steve Martin’s character, George may be very like narrating. You already know, we dwell on this home we blah, blah. He’s simply very very similar to supplying you with a set of the scene, which doesn’t occur rather a lot in motion pictures. I don’t really feel, it’s not tremendous, tremendous frequent. 

Elsie: I used to be already crying on his first opening scene when he’s like, I by no means wanna transfer, I like that we went tenting in our yard. All these little issues that he was saying, oh my god. 

Emma: Yeah, he’s reminiscing about all his reminiscences along with his youngsters, which he additionally has a son who’s not totally grown but, so there’s nonetheless like that within the film too. However yeah, he’s simply coming to phrases with growing old and his youngsters growing old and life-changing, which is tough. Nevertheless it’s actually candy. So for me, we’re gonna discuss decor and all that, however I additionally really feel like that is the film, not even simply the Nancy Meyers one, however of all the films, that simply feels to me prefer it might have been made in my city. I don’t essentially assume it’s made within the Midwest or I don’t assume individuals can be like, oh, this feels very midwest.

Elsie: It’s imagined to be a small city in California. 

Emma: Yeah as a result of the opposite home that’s like, you already know, the son-in-law, their mother and father really feel much more California. And he drives round, I believe you see palm timber however there’s simply one thing about this home and I simply guess possibly the household sensibilities and issues, which is one thing that’s all around the nation, however it simply felt to me very like, oh, this might be the place I’m from, which I don’t really feel that rather a lot in motion pictures to be trustworthy, particularly in motion pictures from sure eras, because it seems like plenty of California, New York, it doesn’t all the time really feel very center of the nation. I by no means really feel like this might have been in Missouri, so it simply has a really traditional, might be anyplace very relatable, though the home is sort of massive and wonderful, however it simply seems like not a very unrelatable factor. 

Elsie: Yeah, it’s positively one in all my favourite film homes of all time. If I have been dwelling on an infinite price range in LA, that is the film home that I might strive every little thing to get, it’s so superb. It’s such a terrific home, however I believe that our new home, one of many issues I favored about it’s that I used to be like, it has just a little tiny little bit of father of the bride. I believe it appears to be like just a little bit extra like a unique film home. It has just a little tiny bit, and I’ll add extra over time, particularly the picket fence, I believe I can add that this 12 months. It’s actually a traditional, stunning dwelling. I’ll hyperlink in our present notes, there’s this weblog that I like to have a look at known as Hooked on Homes, they usually have an entire put up in regards to the father of the bride home they usually simply do film homes they usually form of simply clarify what’s actual areas, what’s a sound stage. It’s simply form of fascinating for nerds like us. So, yeah, I’ll put that in there and you’ll take a look at photos for those who haven’t seen it shortly or you’ll want to refresh your self. It’s a lovely, iconic white clapboard home. So let’s speak in regards to the decor. Oh my God, there are such a lot of good elements of it and I’ll say that they do present the inside variety much more within the second film. While you take a look at the photographs, simply take a look at each of ’em as a result of it’s nice each methods. However my favourite factor about this film is that they present a scene the place the home is roofed in snow, and it’s such as you actually haven’t seen a home till you’ve seen it lined in snow, proper? So the outside of the house, one in all my favourite issues about it, has shutters. It’s so cute and it has plenty of vines rising on the entrance of the home, and plenty of flowers rising, which I believe is so traditional and delightful. Anytime I’ve ever talked to a landscaping particular person, they hate it they usually advocate in opposition to it and I assume it probably has its points. However positive this home, appears to be like so good on there that it simply makes me wanna like develop vines on my home. 

Emma: Yeah, I imply, they’re all through the film prepping to have the marriage outdoors, or at the least a part of the marriage is outdoors, in order that they’re wanting it to look actually manicured and all that. However I additionally assume the outside, they do such a terrific job of doing the identical factor with the exteriors, they do the inside, which is, it simply seems like very lived in. It doesn’t really feel like they only purchased this home, or this film crew simply pulled as much as this new home and it doesn’t actually have a lot character. I don’t even know if it was another person’s home, I don’t know. We’re in all probability gonna discuss that within the trivia, however I simply really feel prefer it seems like individuals have been dwelling right here for 10, 20, 30 years, it seems like that. It seems like they planted these roses years and years in the past and now they’ve the entire bush. It feels very cozy. I personally am not a lot of a landscaping exterior vegetation particular person as a result of we don’t even mow our personal yard. We rent somebody to do this. I simply would not have a inexperienced thumb, however I do love strolling by individuals’s homes who do. So I so respect it and I aspire, however man it’s not my period for it. Perhaps it by no means will probably be, I don’t know, we’ll see what occurs in life and maintain my thoughts open to it. However I might like to stroll by this home as a result of I believe it could odor superb. I simply assume it could look stunning and yeah, they present us a scene the place it’s snowy, so that you form of get to see the totally different seasons and that’s enjoyable. 

Elsie: Subsequent time we go to LA we must always attempt to take an image there and simply be that loser for one minute as a result of it’s my favourite home. I do know it’s annoying that folks try this, however one time to your very favourite one possibly. 

Emma: Hey, I by no means promised to not be annoying.

Elsie: That’s true. It’s in Pasadena and in accordance with Hooked on Homes, they use two homes to movie. I believe that the yard is a unique home after which the entrance yard is that this home. So, the basketball is definitely from the opposite home, however I really feel like that’s an enormous a part of the nostalgia of this home is the scenes the place they’re taking part in basketball collectively and the film has plenty of little flashbacks the place it reveals his daughter Annie as just a little lady, after which he realizes she’s a lady and it’s going forwards and backwards and it’s tugging at your heartstrings. Just lately our daughter requested if we might get a basketball purpose at our new home, and I similar to about misplaced it and I used to be like, I’m gonna make it look similar to the daddy of the bride. I form of simply wanna make Jeremy into Steve Martin from Father of the Bride, is that dangerous? 

Emma: No, you must do it. In case you might do it, do it. 

Elsie: It’s an aspiration. It’s so romantic. I like the basketball scenes. It’s one in all my favourite stills. It counts as its personal room, I believe as a result of it’s so particular. 

Emma: It additionally has the additional benefit of all of the belongings you simply stated, but additionally it reveals off the footwear as a result of he owns a shoe enterprise known as Sidekicks. So that you’re seeing the tennis footwear as they’re taking part in basketball. However yeah, we additionally had a basketball purpose in our driveway rising up. I keep in mind taking part in with our dad, we might play horse rather a lot. The place you’re like attempting to make the hampers and spell out horse, issues like that. You have been extra into basketball than I used to be, however I’ve reminiscences of that. So I believe that’s a part of it too, is I’m like, yeah, that’s a factor. All households have the basketball purpose within the driveway. That’s not essentially true however on this film, you get to see it and it form of hits dwelling. 

Elsie: I like it. One other favourite a part of this house is the kitchen. It’s talked about typically. It’s type of similar to the idyllic American kitchen, if you analyze it if you’re actually trying, it’s very cluttered. It’s not that nice, however it’s the sensation that it provides you once they’re having scenes in there may be actually, actually good. So yeah, I actually wanna perceive what it’s that makes that excellent kitchen feeling.

Emma: Yeah, I agree. While you actually take a look at it, it’s a massive kitchen however you possibly can form of inform from the surface of the home, it’s not gonna be a small kitchen. In order that’s not essentially stunning. It doesn’t really feel like there are any super-expensive finishes. It’s not like they’ve these loopy marbled counter tops or something. It feels form of relatable, though it’s a very giant kitchen. 

Elsie: Kitchens within the Nineteen Nineties have been actually totally different than now. There have been totally different countertop tendencies, I believe there are butcher counters. And so they actually didn’t have a stable floor and marble. 

Emma: Yeah. It was extra like tiled counter tops. That was extra in.

Elsie: Yeah, it was like tiled or butcher or regardless of the different form of fake-looking marble is named.

Emma: Laminate. 

Elsie: Yeah, laminate. In case you actually take a look at nineties motion pictures, you actually don’t see granite or quartz or marble except they’re exhibiting that it’s like an vintage kitchen.

Emma: And even just like the home equipment on this home, the oven and range high appears to be like very nice, I don’t know the model. It form of appeared like a KitchenAid to me, however I don’t actually know. However then the fridge is like this black facet by facet. It doesn’t actually seem like something, all that particular. It doesn’t look crappy or something, however I simply imply all of it appears to be like relatable, good center class, not like loopy fancy, not like, oh, it is a restaurant kitchen and cooks dwell right here. It doesn’t actually really feel that approach, however on the similar time, it does really feel like an actual household there who cooks as a result of it’s a little cluttered. In a great way, I believe in a homey approach, there’s like pans hanging above the island they usually seem like they’ve been used. They don’t seem like a model new set that some set particular person hung up proper earlier than they began capturing. Simply doesn’t all look tremendous matchy, matchy. So it feels actual, though it’s not, it’s a film.

Elsie: Yeah. It’s an excellent feeling kitchen. One other factor that’s form of all the time in a Nancy Meyers film is an outside eating scene, they usually have a lovely outside eating scene with candles and it simply each time see them, I’m like, why don’t we eat outdoor with candles? We simply don’t try this and I wanna try this. It’s like an aspiration that’s so attainable. It’s easy, however I simply don’t try this. So yeah, it’s one thing that I actually need to incorporate. 

Emma: Yeah, I wager your women would actually wanna try this too. They love consuming outdoors, candles make it much more particular. 

Elsie: Sure. Okay. So about the lounge. Just lately I requested my husband, Jeremy, what do you concentrate on this sort of couch? And I confirmed him a white slipcover couch, like a Nancy Meyers. It’s form of in all her motion pictures. There’s form of by no means every other form of couch apart from these white slipcover sofas. It’s very traditional. I don’t see as a lot of my associates utilizing them although. It’s just a little little bit of an old-person factor, proper? I requested him, you already know as a result of they’ve them round and it’s fascinating. It’s positively an fascinating factor for somebody like me who switched sofas so many occasions, this appears extra washable, one thing totally different, appears extra long-lasting. Looks like it’s not attempting to be the assertion of your room as a result of I’ve a factor for coloured sofas, which doesn’t all the time work out as essentially the most long-lasting buy resolution. So anyway, I confirmed him the image and he was just like the strongest response. Completely not, he was like, no approach and he by no means does that. So yeah, I used to be curious what you concentrate on them as a result of I believe I’m 50 50 really. I wasn’t attempting to speak him into it, I in all probability might have. I used to be simply gauging the temperature and it was chilly as ice. Yeah. I’m curious, what do you concentrate on the white slipcover couch factor?

Emma: I might like to know extra from somebody who has one or simply critiques, I assume as a result of my impression is that they might be simpler to wash as properly. So if that’s really true, then I’m like, Ooh, that’s fairly fascinating as a result of we’re a family that has youngsters and canine and I let Oscar eat snacks on the sofa typically and you already know, we get crumbs, all that. So yeah, I would like issues which are fairly washable. I additionally don’t have a powerful sense of what these prices are versus a few of the different couches that we are inclined to gravitate in direction of. However the primary factor that places me not ice chilly, however extra within the center or possibly just a little sizzling, is I like the concept the sofa isn’t essentially the assertion within the room as a result of I simply are inclined to wanna have artwork or colourful throw pillows, or actually, I’m a type of individuals now the place I like wanna put out my Halloween throw pillows after which my Christmas throw pillows, my all 12 months spherical throw pillow. So I form of like a sofa that’s gonna exhibit my seasonal decor and like the opposite issues within the room, I form of favored that concept. However after I’m buying, I haven’t shopped for a sofa in fairly a while, however I do form of transfer in direction of the coloured ones or extra of a press release piece as a result of they only actually stand out. They only look extra fascinating than a boring sofa. I assume not, these are boring, however you already know, much less of a press release.

Elsie: Yeah. Nicely, that’s fascinating. Within the nineties decor books, you understand how Elise has the nineties decor books factor she does on Instagram? They all the time have them, so possibly it is rather like a really nineties factor, however I do know they’re at Pottery Barn and locations like that, so I don’t know. I’m all in favour of our listeners, we might love to listen to what you concentrate on these sofas as a result of I don’t know, I believe it’s possibly considerably polarizing. And you probably have them, please ship us a message and inform us what you assume, if it’s higher, if it’s exhausting to maintain clear something, we don’t know. We’re clueless. However yeah, I’m interested by our new dwelling, you already know, it’s like just a little extra conventional and I’ve not picked out any kinda couch but, and I have to, and it’s like, what do I do? I don’t know. Anyway. Okay, so my favourite second from the entire film, is that if I have been going to make a wall artwork of 1 nonetheless within the bathtub with the swans in it. 

Emma: I knew you have been gonna say that, yeah. 

Elsie: Oh my god. Yeah, I need to be an artwork painter. It’s simply so cute, it’s iconic.

Emma: Yeah. It’s the second we have been like, oh man. 

Elsie: I like it. Okay, so different cozy inspirations from the film, will be style, meals, drink, or something. I actually assume Diane Keaton is sort of a model icon. I need to be every little thing about her from all ages she’s ever been in her day. 

Emma: At all times and Endlessly. Yeah, each film she’s ever in.

Elsie: She’s the final word girl. 

Emma: Yeah, she actually is. She really is and she or he appears to be like lovely on this film. Not stunning.

Elsie: One in all my favourite issues is that the opening credit of the film, the producer and all that is rather like champagne bubbles for like 5 straight minutes and I don’t know, I assume I didn’t discover it prior to now, however this time I used to be like, that’s really so cute, like lovely.

Emma: It’s, yeah. And it actually units the scene for this film’s a couple of marriage ceremony and celebration and romance, you already know? Yeah. 

Elsie: Yeah. It’s cute. The opposite factor is the marriage tent so ever since we’ve been beginning to put together to maneuver to our new dwelling, which does have an acre and a half. I dunno if I’ve stated that earlier than, it’s a reasonably large yard. I don’t know if I might wanna say this out loud, however I’ll. Cuz why not? I’m obsessed that I would like one in all my youngsters to get married in our yard and I believe it’s from this film. I’m obsessive about it although and it’s like, that’s not an affordable obsession to have as a result of it’s probably not your selection and also you shouldn’t be into 

Emma: Yeah. Forcing one thing like that. Perhaps they are going to, however yeah. 

Elsie: And it might be one thing else too.

Emma: What about this although? What if we lease a type of tents for some form of party? Or, I imply, I’m gonna flip 40 in a pair extra years. We might be Emma’s birthday, a fortieth party, otherwise you and Jeremy have an enormous anniversary social gathering for those who wished to or one thing the place, you already know?

Elsie: I’ll make this type of fortieth party the scale of a marriage, that’s fantastic. 

Emma: Okay, nice. Nice. There’s nothing I like greater than plenty of consideration on my birthdays. 

Elsie: Yep. I’ll provide you with a 10-minute-long awkward toast similar to I did at your marriage ceremony. I’ll do all of it. 

Emma: Oh my God. All I imply is if you’d like a type of tents in your yard, I wager we will provide you with a cause.

Elsie: Yeah, no, that sounds good. I agree. Just like the scenes with the greenery across the doorways and it’s simply so cute.

Emma: Yeah, we gotta do it within the spring or summer season. It could actually’t be my birthday now that I’m interested by it. That’s in January. That’s not gonna work. We gotta do one thing within the spring or summer season, possibly for our mother. Anyway, we will discover a cause to place that tent in your yard. Don’t fear about it. 

Elsie: Yeah, that sounds actually good. 

Emma: We might get some swans too. 

Elsie: Might we actually? 

Emma: I’m positive we might, please. I don’t know what it prices, however yeah, I’m positive we might. 

Elsie: It sounds nice. Right here’s my bank card, signal me up. Okay. 

Emma: I like his little automobile, his like sports activities automobile that he drives round. I’m probably not a automobile particular person.

Elsie: What sort of automobile is that? 

Emma: I don’t know, yeah, we’d must look it up. It’s so cute. I used to be gonna say, I’m probably not a lot of a automobile particular person. I simply drive a Subaru and I’ve for years and I like it. Like, I don’t care. I might by no means get myself a elaborate little automobile. It’s not an indulgence that I personally need, however I do like how a lot he appears to love it and he’s driving round. It’s like his particular little factor, clearly. And I form of similar to that vibe. I get it. After which additionally, I really feel like this film ought to get credited for just like the dad footwear as a result of he’ll put on this type of particular tennis footwear due to his shoe firm. However I really feel like that’s the dad shoe look and I really feel like this film could be just like the origin story or one thing. 

Elsie: That’s true. How come that folks say that Tom Hanks is America’s dad as an alternative of Steve Martin?

Emma: I don’t know. Most likely Steve Martin’s pissed about it. No, I don’t know. 

Elsie: I really feel like he form of earned it. 

Emma: You possibly can have multiple dad. They may each be the dad. 

Elsie: That’s true. Why not be like Mama Mia? That’s fantastic. Okay, so I had down, did this film age properly, or did it not age properly? I believe it aged very properly on the spectrum of Nineteen Nineties motion pictures, which is what we’ve largely been rewatching just lately. I believe it’s up there on the very high. I believe it’s very watchable. Even Martin Quick’s efficiency, I don’t know if they might put that in a film now. However I believe it’s so dangerous that it’s good and it form of works. I don’t know. What do you assume? 

Emma: Yeah, I believe that’s the one factor that I’m like, I don’t learn about that accent selection or what sort of character he’s doing precisely, however he’s doing his factor, I’m unsure about that with the growing old, I don’t know. After which I additionally assume it’s simply not as conventional now that, the daddy of the bride pays for the marriage. However I additionally assume this film doesn’t deal with it, there aren’t actually plenty of sexist feedback about it. It’s extra, I take into consideration a person who’s growing old and coping with that and seeing his daughter develop up and stuff. So I really assume all of that age like rather well and good. However I do assume in the event that they remade it, I imply they do have a brand new one now, but when they’re making it proper now this 12 months, a few of that might dialogue and issues would in all probability change. However I don’t really feel like something in it makes me really feel like, Ooh, that is so dated and that’s not good. I believe it form of works and ladders as much as the theme of the film. 

Elsie: I utterly agree. Okay. Do you wanna hear some trivia? 

Emma: Sure. At all times. 

Elsie: Okay. This one is tougher to search out plenty of trivia on, however I’ll present you what I’ve. So the primary piece of trivia is that Eugene Levy seems in each movies, Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride, half two from 1995, however as totally different characters in every. 

Emma: Yeah, that’s true. That’s humorous. 

Elsie: Yeah, I didn’t discover that. 

Emma: I didn’t discover that and now you’re saying, I’m like, yeah, that’s true. That’s actually humorous. They only actually favored working with him. They’re like, we should deliver him again. However you already know, we had this totally different character we want, so. Yeah. 

Elsie: Yeah, I believe if I have been making a film, I might in all probability choose Eugene Levy each single time, it doesn’t matter what. In order that is sensible. Okay, so the daughter on this film is known as Annie and within the Mum or dad Entice, the Nancy Meyers model, the daughters are named Annie and Halle, that are the names of Nancy Meyers’s daughters. Cute, huh? Sure, so I’ve already stated this earlier within the episode, however that is my primary most coveted film home. Really, possibly I might give it a tie for, I don’t know. I don’t know, however I’ll say, that is my primary most coveted film home in California. That is the one, it’s similar to, it’s so iconic. It’s so superb, and I simply love that it’s an actual home that somebody will get to dwell in, whoever they’re, good for them. 

Emma: I agree. Yeah, and similar, it could be tied with, It’s Difficult, Meryl Streep’s home. However I don’t know. I do really feel like this one feels extra, like might be within the Midwest to me, not simply Southern California, though it’s in California. So I don’t know, however yeah, I like this home a lot. I like this kitchen a lot. All the pieces about it. 

Elsie: Yeah. It’s a really traditional century dwelling. Okay, so that is fairly frequent, however the entire interiors from the film are a sound stage, so none of them are actually in that home. All of it’s simply began from scratch, and I believe they did a very good job. They’re like stained glass and woodwork and it feels very, very genuine for a historic dwelling, particularly styled within the nineties. And yeah, simply the correct quantity of muddle. Which I believe makes it really feel much less like a film set and extra like somebody’s actual dwelling.

Emma: Agree. Yeah. They did an incredible job.

Elsie: Okay. So that is only a micro element that I similar to love, however within the first film there may be really, for those who look carefully within the kitchen behind her sink and stuff, there may be really cow print tile on the partitions with little cows on it. After which when it comes again for the second film, it’s switched to impartial tile. Isn’t that cute?

Emma: I didn’t discover the cow print tile. Yeah. Now I wanna re-watch it once more simply to see the tile. Yeah, I didn’t discover that. That’s fascinating. 

Elsie: Once we have been in highschool, one in all our shut associates, his mother had a cow-themed kitchen that was a ten, prefer it was not just a little bit cow themed. It was a ten out of 10 cows-themed kitchens. 

Emma: I had one other buddy whose mother had a pig kitchen. All pigs. Yeah. Why did my kitchen have a theme? What’s improper with me? Now that I’m interested by it? 

Elsie: Within the nineties, I believe individuals considered their kitchens just a little bit extra like a nursery the place you had a theme and I don’t assume individuals do form of anymore. However yeah, I believe the cow factor is humorous as a result of it’s change into a pattern, once more, like a Gen Z pattern just lately, the previous couple of years. And it’s not for me, however it’s like I see that it’s there and I acknowledge that it’s trending. 

Emma: I prefer it for the nostalgia, I have to say. However there isn’t any approach in hell if I had an entire pig kitchen, that Trey would come dwelling and be like, that is completely fantastic, and I’m not gonna remark about this, there’s no probability.
