Good morning, madam. You look absolutely marvelous.
Hey, wait a minute. Aren't you forgetting something?
Well, it's only Thursday - you told me just to say it...
Well, never mind that. I think I need you to say it every morning.
Very well. "Oh, madam! You look younger every day!"

I saw this film when i was about 9, since then i have been hooked on it! Its hilarious and cool. Meryl Streep, is superb and funny and knows how to light up the screen. This is definatly one of my favourite films of all time and very good if you want a laugh. Death Becomes Her has great special effects and is an excellent 'black comedy'.
