Hubby's and my idea of a perfect Sunday morning is having coffee in the living room, cuddled on the couch in our bathrobes, watching a good black and white war movie.

I totally forgot about Hitchcock, every time I see Birds I'm freaked out for at least a week !
And yes Super Troopers requires at least 1 yearly viewing, man oh man I want to add another 10 to my list right now.

Hmmm... I don't know if I can properly fill out a top 10, so I'm just going to start and see where it goes:

1) Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
2) Ever After
3) McLintock (reminds me of the taming of the shrew)
4) 50 First Dates
5) The Lord of the Rings trilogy... the extended version
6) Batman Begins
7) Twilight (I haven't seen New Moon yet... I expect to love that one, too)
icon_cool.gif Westward the Women
9) Johnny Lingo
10) Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
11) The Princess Bride (my name is Inigo Montoya... you killed my father... prepare to die)

except for the first two, they are in no particular order, and I can't say that there isn't something I would have put on there, except that I couldn't think of it right now.

post #20 of 31

I'm bringing it back up. Here's mine in no particular order.

Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones!!! OMG! Love them, and in the same movie PRICELESS!

1. The fugitive
2. U.S Marshall
3. Volcano
4. Air Force One
5. Sabrina

These two WOWWW!

6. Powder
7. Green Mile

Even though Samuel L. Jackson plays serious roles, he is hysterical in every movie to me and my family. Every character he plays he owns the part; you can see him in the person and the person in him. Then he starts all that yelling like only he can do and we fall out laughing. We love him!

8. A Long Kiss Goodnight ( loved him and Geena Davis in this movie. The funny parts of this movie was his wardrobe and when Genna pushed him out of a moving car on a busy street and he rolled to the curb, just layed there on his back, lit a cigarette as cars just drove past him. Geena came back and he was still laying there smoking; he calmly got up and his pants only came to his ankles and all you saw was bright white socks. Everytime my family see this we be on the floor crying.)
9. The Negotiator
10. The Man ( with Eugene Levy crazy funny movie they made a good team)

I love to get my laugh on; no matter how silly the movie might seem.

11. The American Pie trilogy ( stupidly hilarious)
12. Friday After Next (funny funny funny)
13. Love Stinks (never heard of this until I went to the library and it was on their for sale rack; bought it for $1.00. Laughed my butt off)
14. National Security (Martin Lwrence and Steve Zahn funny team)

Anything, anything with Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn!!!

15. There's Something About Mary
16. Meet the Parents (Ben and Owen)
17. Meet the Fockers
18. Night at the Museum part 1 (haven't seen 2 yet)
19. Starsky and Hutch (all three of them played in this I LOVED IT!!)
20. Wedding Crashers (Vince and Owen, hilarious)
21. Dodgeball (Vince and Ben, hilarious)
22. The Breakup (Vince and Jennifer A, funny)
23. BE COOL (if you like to laugh and you haven't seen this you're missing out. It has something for everybody and it is truely hysterical. Vince Vaughn is a straight up FOOL in this movie. This is the role that made me fall hard for him.)

I know, I know only seven more I promise. Old movies

21. The Bad Seed ( that little girl was something else)
22. A Tree Grows In Brooklyn (haven't seen this in since I was a child; love to see it again)
23 The Onion Field (another from my child hood)

Action and adventure Harrison (again) and Arnold both looking very manly, unshaven, kind of dusty and sweaty (like a fireman) one with a cool hat and swagger and one with pulsating muscles in an opened vest. Be still my quivering loins.)

24. Indiana Jones and the temple of doom
25. Predator

Putting the shoe on the other foot movies. Love these, any movie where the the tables are turned and the man is left to feel and go through what we women feel and go through when dealing with men and there crap. (Not all men)

26. Two can play that game
27. Boomerang
