It's a guy film. I completely understand your position...although I've spoken to several females who really enjoyed the film.


I love chick flicks. I just got done watching Nights In Rodanthe with Richard gere and Diane Lane on the dish network. This romance film made me cry.

"Fireproof." We loved it! We cried, we laughed, we watched wide-eyed during the rescue scenes, we cried some more. James and my best friend Christi agreed with me that every married couple (and every future married couple) should see it.

We watched two movies over the weekend:

Bottleshock - pretty good, so made me want to to Napa (and Paris again!)

Young @ Heart - great documentary about a senior citizens choral group - they sang rock songs by the Clash, Ramones, Talking Heads, Sonic Youth. It was a very cute little film, I enjoyed it.

I saw that one, too, Babe...............first time I saw James Woods' acting skills.......he was so good.........and I cried.........

you watched a better one than I did............I watched Pretty Baby with Brooke Shields........ok.......I'll admit it.......in certain scenarios.......I'm a prude.......my goodness.......how did her mother justify this movie role??? I would be aghast at my daughter (prenubile) accepting a role like this one just to further her career along..........she could not have been more than 13 or 14 years old and was playing a prostitute who still had childlike qualities.........I just watched in unbelievable wonder.........certainly there is going to be some form or texture to this movie and I guess that I'm dumb as I never saw it.........it was sad and pathetic........ok, enough ranting........I just keep thinking of allowing my daughter to play a role like this one and I can't.............

Bought a dvd at Sam's Club , called Fireproof. It's an inspirational story of a marriage saved.

I saw that when it was originally on TV and loved it. It is very moving. We bought the DVD set a few months ago but haven't had a chance to see it. James hasn't seen it yet, and I think everyone should.

Confessions of a Shopaholic was really fun to watch with my daughter. The one that really made an impact was The Secret Life of Bees that's on DVD now.
