Sensational Saturday - Lessons from Movies - No Way Out

Sensational Saturday - it is sensational to learn life lessons from the movies, here is what I learned from "No Way Out."

Each Sensational Saturday throughout the month of September I will be sharing lessons I learned from my favorite movies. By sharing my favorite movies, I will be sharing with you a little about me and the way I think. Perhaps you can spend this time exploring yourself and how you think and maybe even learn something new.

One of the first movies I ever saw with my husband, then boyfriend, was "No Way Out." The movie detailed the adventures of a Russian mole in high levels of United States intelligence who was trying not to get caught. The movie was a spy thriller, which  is one of my favorite kinds of books to read. There was adventure and excitement. I watched the movie again a few years ago and the movie did not stand the test of time. Perhaps I liked the movie and have good memories of it because of what was going on in my life at the time.

When I saw the movie I was on a date having a silly time. I remember throwing popcorn at Darren and  him asking me to stop. After one handful of popcorn he told me that if I threw any more popcorn at him he would kiss me. Of course, I proceeded to throw two more handfuls of popcorn. More than 20 years of marriage and four kids later, I am sure you can guess how Darren responded to the additional handfuls of popcorn.

As you read this you are probably wondering why this movie is in my list of all time favorites since it has not stood the test of time like the other movies I have talked about the past few Sensational Saturdays. It is in the list because it always makes me think of happy, silly, young and moving towards grown up that my relationship with Darren was at the time. In 1987 when we saw the movie, our relationship was new and young. We were learning about ourselves and each other. We were figuring out how we could fit into each others' lives. It was a sweet time in my life.



Perhaps the lesson I learned from the movie wasn't actually from the movie, but from my date at the movie. I learned, love is sweet and fun and sometimes involves throwing food. So, the question for you this Sensational Saturday is what is the most memorable thing you ever learned from a movie.
