SEINFELD - One character and his living misfortunes instantly came to mind: George Costanza. "My name is George. I'm unemployed and I live with my parents." The silver lining here is that anyone in a similar situation CAN'T have it nearly as bad as George because there is no way anyone's parents are worse than his.
SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON - Say it's not financial woes that change your abode....but rather you find yourself stranded on a desert island. I thought of Lost and Castaway, but Swiss Family Robinson is the REAL master of this scenario. If you lose your normal cushy way of life, might as well build a GIANT treehouse(s) and ride wild animals for fun!
BRIDESMAIDS - "We'd like to invite you to no longer live with us." That has to be one of my absolute favorite lines from this movie...one that makes me laugh just thinking about this. I definitely have thought about saying that before to roommates I've lived with, but being told that? Ouch. And coming from HER roommates??/ Even worse. Basically, this movie is a good one to watch if you need a pick me up in ANY area of life because Kristen Wiig's character probably has it worse than you.
ZOMBIELAND - After the destroyed home/world scenario, there's the destroyed RACE scenario. So I guess I should just be glad that it wasn't a zombie apocalypse that forced me out of my place. I'd be super depressed if all my friends started eating each other and I had to band together with a bunch of strangers to stay alive and all...
BEETLEJUICE - Or I could be dead. And forced to share my house that I worked so hard to get just the way I wanted (even if their's is WAY ugly...) with a crazy eccentric artist (been there done THAT...that's Clint's problem now! haha!) who wants to change EVERYTHING and her moody gothic stepdaughter (who I weirdly get along with?) Yeah...it could definitely be worse.
RATATOUILLE - Like the last one, they couldn't ALL be bad scenarios. This time, we'll make our way out of the gutter and into a PARISIAN apartment with a magnificent view. Yeah. That's the life.
Well, I hope you enjoyed that RANDOM list. It definitely made me feel a little better...minus the fact that I'm not moving to Paris again anytime soon. Any other crazy living situation movies I missed? Believe it or not...there are actually quite a few!
