Didn't we all!

I had a girlfriend who used to wear weird earrings and yellow overalls - a work mate's kids called her Molly.

I have trouble defining favourite. There are movies that I've seen that have moved/inspired/changed me, and then there are movies that I've watched lots of times but still derive pleasure from like an old pair of shoes. There is no overlap between the two sets.

And then there are the movies you loved at the time but you don't understand why now.

Will think some more.

3. 40 Year Old Virgin....

That movie is FUNNY! I had no interest in seeing it for years - just thought it wouldn't be my cup of tea, but it came on tv one night and my son was watching it so I sat down and watched it and - oh god - was that funny!
The lady who plays Sue Sylvester on Glee and the Indian store clerk who couldn't stop cursing...Jud Apatow reminds me of my best friend growing up - he had my favorite line - 'What do you do on a date with a grandmother?' I don't know - do her while she's watching 'Murder She Wrote?'

Today I remembered another favorite, so much a favorite that I'll make it worth 3 others:

Ariane Mnoushkine's Moliere (a 1980 release)

Psycho
Silence of the Lambs
Chances Are

If I could have a 4th pick, I woud agree with dys about Harold and Maude. My goal, when I was younger, was to become an old lady just like Ruth Gordon.

@dyslexia,
Harold and Maude is high on my list as well, let's put it in the top three this week. The Princess Bride is definitely in there. Perhaps the third would be Dead Alive.

Aw, after reading through.... so many others I could have named for top three - like Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Shrek Smile

Bambi Mr. Green 2 Cents Not Equal Drunk

Never seen in my life !



I saw Bambi for the first time when I was about 22, around 1980ish

I saw it w/ my bf, everyone else in the threater were parents with really little kids.

I cried through the whole damn film.

Especially when, at the part where Bambi's mom buys the farm, some little kid jumps up and yells "WHERE'S HIS MOMMY????!!!!!!"
