Lightening Up the Mood: The Creative Writing Class Scene from Throw Momma from the Train

One of my favorite people on the planet, my cousin Jeff McDonald, has always been a kindred spirit, sharing in my zany sense of humor and penchant for pranks. In unison, we quote movie scripts ad nauseum–from Blazing Saddles to this one–a shared personal favorite that Jeff posted on Facebook, tagging me today, reminding me to keep on laughing through these tough times with my dad’s end stage cancer.

For creative writers and those who have taken any writing classes in college, this clip is a classic – the teacher critique scene from “Throw Momma from the Train.”
