Partially inspired by the fact that this movie was on tv yesterday:
Lenny from “That Thing You Do”
Now the other boys in the band might be cuter in the traditional sense of the word, but Lenny has always been my favorite. I totally think he would make the perfect boyfriend. He is in a band (duh!), plays a mean guitar, can sing lead as well as harmony (see “Dance With Me Tonight“). He also manages to look adorable with his blond hair all formed into a helmet. He wouldn’t take things too seriously, and he would be so happy to have a girl actually pay attention to him that he would treat me like a queen. Plus, I adore Steve Zahn and everything that he is.
But the best thing about Lenny is that everytime he opens his mouth he says something funny. Sometimes he doesn’t even have to say anything, his mere presence makes me laugh out loud. Some of his more memorable moments are playing Go Fish with some old guys, pretending to play the saxophone in a major motion picture, and “it’s the O-Nedders.”
No matter who your favorite is, (Guy, Jimmy, Lenny, or ‘the bass player) I highly recommend that everyone re-visit this movie. I always forget how awesome it is until I see it again and then it makes me all happy and giddy. Here is my favorite part of the whole movie (and one of my favorite Lenny bits), when they first hear their song on the radio. The quality isn’t the best, but the point comes across.
Also, if you are interested in this type of thing, I found this website that has a very fun looking “game” to play whilst watching the movie.
