Trick or Treating with Mr. Mom

The other blogs that have featured Halloween “blogathons” don’t seem to be letting up steam. While they’re continuing to annihilate us with great posts, I’ll feature some mediocre posts for the days leading up to Halloween. I plan on featuring more random Halloween related stuff but I’ve pretty much blown all my good material already. Some of the topics I was geared up to write about have already been beaten to death or I realized it wasn’t that interesting in the first place.

I don’t know about you, but I desperately want to be way more into the Halloween mood but it’s not working! Working for a living really puts a damper on being a kid again. Hopefully this weekend I’ll be able to watch a bunch of horror movies and get into the spirit.

Above, I posted a moment from one of my favorite movies of all time, Mr. Mom (1983). In this scene, Jack (Michael Keaton) takes his kids out to trick or treat while his wife goes away on business. Jack’s son Alex (Chip on Kate & Allie) is dressed as a cowboy and his brother Kenny looks like a medieval knight. Jack’s wife’s friend Joan (Ann Jillian) is looking foxy as hell and Annette (Miriam Flynn) has a kickass vintage E.T mask on. Even though Mr. Mom isn’t a Halloween movie, I always associated this scene with the holiday because it reminded me of how awesome Halloween was when I was a kid.
