Rx For January - Laughter
Rx For January—Laughter

     Let’s face it, we have more or less, all been home surrounded in the sanctuary of family and friends for the past weeks and now it’s back to work.
     As soon as the weekend comes around, we will be back home minus the lights and gaiety of the season, looking ahead maybe at some unpaid bills and in some climes, to nine or ten more weeks of winter.
     The weekend might be a good time to watch a movie together at home filled with laughter to bring us all back together once again while the spirit of the holidays still lingers on.
     “The Mouse That Roared” from 1959 is my favorite Peter Sellers movie.
     You might know the late Peter Sellers from ‘The Pink Panther’ or maybe ‘Dr. Strangelove’, a Stanley Kubrick film where he played six different roles.
     Here he plays three different people.
     But even 60 plus years after this movie was created, ‘Mouse That Roared,’ is laugh out loud funny, brilliantly written and acted and wonderful family viewing.
     Mouse is just the ticket for a mid-January weekend.
     Here is the plot.
     In Europe, when the tiny nation of Grand Fenwick’s (that is almost impossible to find on a map) only export revenue, a special wine, begins to be produced in California, their entire economy collapses.
     Things look dire until Prime Minister Rupert Mountjoy (Peter Sellers) points out that no country that has declared war on the United States has ever gone hungry.
     When Field Marshall Tully Bascombe (Peter Sellers) and the 23 other men in the Grand Fenwick army invade the United States, their plan to immediately surrender unravels.
     “In January,” as my grandmother Flossie always said, “laughter is the best medicine. It’s good for what’s ailing you,” she insisted.
     Watch ‘Mouse The Roared’ and believe.
     It’s available on Vudu, Fandango and Google Play. It also can be found full length (dubious quality) on YouTube.
