Movie Time


It's that time of year for us. My mom and dad and I seem to reserve Winter Break as the time to indulge in movies. We have our usual suspects for the holidays: The Family Stone, The Gathering (both really the same movie), It's A Wonderful Life, Christmas With The Kranks (again, the same movie) & The Holiday; and then there's the wonderful array of movies that Turner plays: Holiday Inn (I think this is my new holiday fav), White Christmas, Family Man, About A Boy.

We also like to watch the movies that show up under the tree. This year it was The First Wives Club. I've said it before and I'll say it again: when I grow up, I want to be Diane Keaton.

Last night we stumbled across a great little chick flick called The Women. If you are a fan of Sex And The City, or Meg Ryan, Annette Benning, Cloris Leachman, Jeda Pinkett Smith, Deborah Messing, Candice Bergen, Bette Middler, or fast talking dames in general, I'd give it a go. It's not going to win any awards - and the critics hated it. And it is NOT as good as Sex And The City. But I thought it was a great little romp through the lives of women and how we make decisions, what matters most, and how our girlfriends are irreplaceable.

Any suggestions for the rest of break?

Amy, as I am learning that we are more & more alike as I read your blog & Facebook updates I have to recommend the original The Women (1939). We DVR'd it from TCM not too long ago & I loved it. My husband loves old movies (& new movies too) so we DVR TCM a lot. Have you seen any of the Thin Man movies? Those are fun too. Holiday Inn is one of my faves too. :)
