FUN FACT The score was composed by Oscar winner Elmer Bernstein (Thoroughly Modern Millie). So that explains all the oboe solos during the sentimental parts…

Well duh. That explains all those oboe solos.

Or not. Not when the movie that they bring up is Throughly Modern Millie, anyway. (Couldn’t they have chosen a better movie as “his”?) Hmmm.

Then again, the quote above is from Entertainment Weekly, suggesting I see the movie Meatballs. (I do like Bill Murray, but somehow I doubt this movie would be my cuppa.) And yeah, Bernstein did win an Oscar for TMM. I find that fairly amusing, but I guess they don’t judge the music by the movie.
