I remember Driving Miss Daisy . Who can remember every single movie over the years ?

I read the book and cried. I would imagine the same thing would happen if I watched the movie.

However, having said that, I'm a great big softie and a huge crier when watching movies. For example, Buck and I watched Sabrina the other night and cried during parts of it.

All the chick flicks make me cry. I'm sure I'm forgetting many others.
Oooooh, City of Angels! I adore that movie. I've got a thing for guys in long, black coats because of that movie. It still makes me cry. Tragic love stories are the best. There's an old one that has sort of a cult following called "Harold and Maude". It's very quirky but I'm crying and laughing throughout the whole thing. Have you seen it?

Are you sure you don't have a crush on The Donald? j/k

Harold & Maude was hysterical. Well some parts. When she throws the ring in the ocean and says "Now I'll always know where it is." And.. he keeps trying to hang himself to get attention. City of angels really got to me. I especially liked the scene where she describes what a pear tastes like. I'm not a huge fan of NC, but he did a great job in that movie as well as Leaving LV.

Hey, what's wrong with The Donald?????? And I feel the same about Mr. Cage. I don't know what is is about him in that movie but wow! (Wait - now I remember! It was the scene with him in the shower!)

And... Philadelphia was almost too difficult to watch. But Hanks & Denzel gave amazing performances. The song still makes the hairs? on the back of my neck stand up.



(Loved him in concert. The Boss still rocks!)
