Agreed. This was one of our favorite films last year. Did you know the lead actor and the lead actress became a couple in real life after filming the movie?

Saphellae, I listened to that a number of years ago with my kids in the car and then saw the movie with my youngest most recently, it was so good......a classic.

Last movie I watched... Star wars last night! Hopefully I'll have time to watch another one later on in the evening, but I'm going to spend the day at the hospital so no Star Wars for me

Last night I watched Made of Honor. It was a cute, lighthearted comedy. I especially enjoyed seeing "Mc Dreamy" (Patrick Dempsey) shirtless in a lot of the movie.

Its kind of obscure, but I caught the movie "Martian Child" on HBO last night. Probably didnt get rave reviews, but the Mrs & I really enjoyed it. Touching, very heartwarming.......
