Ten Reasons to Love Ouiser Boudreaux

Why Steel Magnolias didn't receive more Oscar nods is beyond my thinking.  This movie is an all time classic.....only if you are a woman.  The performances of Olympia Dukakis, Shirley MacLaine and Dolly Parton are comedic masterpieces.  So great, that I sat through another performance of this classic movie a few weeks ago.

While some may question how much the movie is true art, most of the female population loves this movie for it's moments of female bonding laced with funny, sarcastic remarks.  And who wouldn't fall I love with Ouiser Boudreaux.  Here are the 10 reasons I love Shirley MacLaine's roll as Ouiser Boudreaux.

10.  I do not see plays because I can nap at home for free. And I don't see movies 'cause they're trash, and they got nothin' but naked people in 'em! And I don't read books, 'cause if they're any good, they're gonna make 'em into a miniseries.

9. He is a boil on the butt of humanity!

8. Don't try to get on my good side, Truvy. I no longer have one!

7. I'm not as sweet as I used to be!  (Isn't that the truth!)

6. You are a pig from hell.

5. This is it, I've found it. I'm in hell.

4. I'm pleasant. Damn it! I saw Drum Eatenton at the Piggly Wiggly this morning, and I smiled at the son of a bitch 'fore I could help myself.

3. My god, you look different. Have you shrunk?

2. The only reason people are nice to me is because I have more money than God.

1. I'm not crazy, I've just been in a very bad mood for 40 years!   ( I think I'll have to use this line in a few years!)

Now that you have laughed and are smiling, go have a great weekend!
