Top Five...

Favorite movies.

Likely, no one cares what my top five
of anything is.
Can't imagine anyone would.
But I always like reading others' lists.

5. I'm really not sure what #5 should be...
Up? No.
Sleepless in Seattle? No.
The Terminal? No.
I'm forgetting a good movie.
I just know I am.
Oh, maybe it's Some Kind of Wonderful.
Haven't seen that one in a long time.
Or it could be Say Anything.
I like John Cusack.
And his sister Joan too.
Just thought of one more movie.
Bringing Up Baby.
It's an old one.
With Katherine Hepburn.
And Cary Grant.
Can't really go wrong with any Cary Grant movie.

4. Sweet Home Alabama
Mostly just because of the song.
And the guy.
Not Mr. McDreamy.
The other one.
Oh, that reminds me of a movie.
Patrick Dempsey was in it.
It's from high school days.
He likes the popular girl.
He's not popular.
He becomes popular.
Turns his back on his "uncool" friends.
Gets the girl.
Looses the girl.
Because he becomes a jerk.
Becomes a looser again.
Then gets the girl in the end.
He mowed lawns.
What was that movie?
It's going to bug me now.

3. How to Loose a Guy in 10 Days
It's just cute.
And Kate Hudson is cute.

2. Sandlot
Funny movie.
With cute little boys.
And great music.
So many parts of that I love.
The pool.
The fireworks.
The carnival.
Almost makes you want to be a kid again.

1. Princess Bride
Do I really need to explain why?
It makes me laugh.
E.v.e.r.y. time.
Probably the most quoted movie in our house.

There you have it.
Notice none of them are recent.
We don't get out much.

None of them are artsy.
Or thought provoking.
Or clever.
I have simple tastes.

And a simple mind, apparently.
But they all make me laugh.
That's a good thing.
It's good to laugh.
I like to laugh.

Hey, is that movie "Can't Buy Me Love" or something like that?!?! If it is... I had no idea that was PD in it. I saw that back in 7th grade when I was living in Kansas!!!

That's it, Julie! Thanks so much. Pretty sure it was Patrick in it anyway. Have to look that up when I get a chance.

I am a long time reader, first time commenting on a post. The movie is Can't Buy Me Love and it is Patrick in the movie. A few of your top ones are my favorites too - Sandlot and Princess Bride. My other top favorite is Hoosiers -happens to be my hubby's favorite too! I knew he was the right one when we had the same favorite movie. :) I truly enjoy reading your blog - I have four kids - three boys and one girl.

You know, I saw "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" about 3 days before my first date with my now husband. The friend I was with said to me, "Maybe you'll get some pointers from this movie in case Saturday night goes bad." (We met on a blind date). Fortunately, I didn't need any pointers as we were engaged 4 months later. But, I still find that movie cute.

Beth, Hoosiers is one of my hubby's favorites too! Thanks for commenting. It's neat to hear from all readers. But I'm especially fascinated by those of you that read this crazy thing yet have never met me. : )

Everything is better in list form.

I love your list! And your simple mind. Although mine's simpler. (Sounds like a challenge, huh?)
