Monday Movies ~ Fuzzy Faces!

Feature Presentation...

It's that time of year when visions of the big & beautiful Stanley Cup dance in the heads of many men as well as many fans. I'm talking about the NHL Hockey Playoffs. The New York Rangers lost this weekend, I'm sad to report but the Boston Bruins are alive & well, battling it out against the Montreal Canadians. One of the major traditions of playoff hockey is players grow 'playoff beards' for good luck. Some of them, the Bumbles point out, such as Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, rock a porno 'stache instead. Apparently, Andy has grown facial hair in the past to support his team of which Molly isn't a fan! She does have some favorite movie characters who rocked their facial hair. That's what this week's theme is all about! I've compiled a list of movies in which at least one of the characters sports "interesting" facial hair. Share on your blog characters in film with memorable beards and or mustaches, linking your post back to The Bumbles Blog. If you don't have a blog, list your choices in the comment section of The Bumbles Movie post!

  1. I love that you included Groucho because in those early, famous Marx Brothers movie, his mustache was grease paint. Great choice!

  2. Oh my, that top one is rather disturbing to me! I'm glad my son never played hockey!

  3. I don't know that last movie, with Bruce Willis. I'll have to check it out! Great answers.

  4. Great movie choices! I've never seen some of these so going to check out now!

  5. THE GAL HERSELF: I couldn't not include Groucho as he's amazing! Real or not his facial hair is memorable! Thank you for your comment!

    LEE: Thank you! I agree!

  6. BERMUDAONION: They made this goalie look a little worse but hockey isn't a gentle sport...teeth are often lost & blood is shed. If I were the mother of a son, I would watch any and all his sports activities with my hands in front of my syes!

    KWIZGIVER: What Just Happened? is an interesting movie and pretty funny. It mocks Hollywood and movie production. It also has some greta stars!

  7. HMSGOFITA: Thank you! Most of these movies are very good. I hope you enjoy whichever films you watch from this list!

  8. We shared Smokey & the Bandit. Sorry I'm so late getting here, trying to catch up this weekend :)
