Here's an idea for a Movie.... any takers?
Enjoy the moment,
whatever the situation.
I use to hate having my picture taken...
because I didn't like the way I looked then.
But looking back...
I think I look better then,
than I do now.
I'm OK with my picture being taken...
because I know...
IT'S GOING TO GET A LOT WORST!
Here are some examples in Movies:
Father & Son:
Summer Switch (Movie) ~ The switch is on! Summer Switch - a charming and very funny tale which proves that "trading places" isn't all it's cracked up to be. Comedian Robert Klein stars as Bill Andrews, a film executive who dreads his upcoming meeting with the studio's new president. His son Ben, on the other hand, longs to get out of going to Camp Soonawissakit, which his father loved as a child. And when the two of them exclaim "I'd give anything to be in his shoes," they magically switch bodies. But what is fun at first soon turns into a disaster for both father and son. And after a short time, both realize they were much happier as themselves. The miraculous switch back provides them with a newfound understanding of themselves...and each other.
Mother & Daughter:
Freaky Friday (Movie) ~ The wide generation gap between Tess Coleman (played by Jamie Lee Curtis) and her teenage daughter Anna (played by Lindsay Lohan) is more than evident. They simply cannot understand each other's preferences. They don't see eye-to-eye on clothes, hair, music, and certainly not in each other's taste in men. On a Thursday night they have a big argument in a Chinese restaurant. Both receive a fortune cookie each from the restaurant owner's mother which causes them to switch bodies the next day which is their Freaky Friday. As they adjust with their new personalities, they begin to understand each other more and eventually it's the mutual self-respect that sorts the things out.
Grandfather & Grandson:
There's no movie on this yet (as far as I know) but this could be as interesting as the 2 examples above. A boy complains his army training was tough while his grandfather (who is an old man) would gladly change places with him. And if it could be done, the boy would gladly change places with his grandfather. If this happens, I think the grandfather (who is a boy now) would actually have the better part of the deal and live life to the fullest with this new least of life. The boy (who is an old man now) would probably wish he could be young again and change back to being that boy in the army. His grandfather who loves him would probably make this change back possible.
