Life Lessons Learned from My Blue Heaven

Sky: You are the company you keep.

  • Vinnie’s ways rub off on Barney; dancing, wearing nice suits, not so straight-laced, lying. Barney also seems to rub off a bit on Vinnie.

Steve Martin and Rick Moranis are a great comedic duo.

Dusty: Always have leverage on others.

  • Vinnie was able to turn the tables on DA Stubbs by bringing up her turtle deception.

Joan Cusack is always a great part of any movie. She had great role in this movie opposite Rick Moranis.

Sky: “Why make war? ” – Vinnie

  • Love this lesson: Be kind and gentle; confrontations are unnecessary, let bygones be bygones, don’t burn bridges.

Dusty: Never take your wallet out.

  • Have a money clip instead and DO NOT visit Brazil.

We’d love to have this prop suit in a huge Lucite case in our office.

Additional Lessons Learned from Dusty:

  • Don’t skimp on the socks.
  • It’s very hard for a person to change. You have to change from the outside in.
  • Look for opportunities everywhere.
  • Green side up for the sod.
