My wife drug me to it. I swear there was only one other guy in the theater so it was just us two guys and about every middle aged women in town, lol.Cindy416 said:There ya go, Forster! How could I have forgotten Mamma, Mia? I loved it. (Even if I hadn't loved the movie, I'd have loved the scenery. I needed to see the movie a second time if for no other reason than the scenery captivated my attention the first time through. What I wouldn't give for a trip to Greece!
Wow, my list is almost identical. The only one I can think of adding is Sleepless in Seattle.Cindy416 said:I can't possibly narrow it down to one, but here are some of my favorites:
Pride & Prejudice (1995 A&E miniseries starring Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy)
Bridget Jones's Diary
What a Girl Wants (the father/daughter dance ALWAYS makes me cry)
Paperback Hero (Australian movie starring Hugh Jackman and Claudia Karvan)
Kate and Leopold
Someone Like You
Shakespeare in Love
One Fine Day
While You Were Sleeping
You've Got Mail
I'm sure I've left out some others that I consider to be great "chick flicks," but these are the ones that immediately come to mind. I admit to being a hopeless romantic as well as a fan of anything with Colin Firth, Hugh Jackman, and Hugh Grant in it.
I can't lie -- I prefer You've Got Mail.CS said:
They eventually remade this as You've Got Mail, and while that version is serviceable enough, it doesn't even begin to touch the original. I watched both movies back-to-back last year, and it was a lot of fun - especially to see a couple of entire scenes from Shop Around The Corner lifted (badly) by You've Got Mail.
Ok, mine is...MichelleR said:I can't lie -- I prefer You've Got Mail.
I just think that Margaret Sullavan comes across as crazy-coo coo in the original, and the couple seems doomed
OMG! Was that the one that Julia Roberts cursed like a sailor in? I went to see that with my mother-in-law and felt like crawling under the theater seat... yea, I picked the movie... how dumb was that?cheerio said:
