favorite movies

  1. i bought "meet the parents" two weeks ago. every time i watch it i cant stop laughing. one of the funniest things about the movie is all of the references to the main character being a male nurse. im not going to say anything else about it because i dont want to spoil it for anyone who might not have seen it.

    other movie favorites:

    Oh yeah, Fish Called Wanda was very good. I think my fave is The Search for the Holy Grail. Makes me laugh just thinking about the knights who say Nee! A lot of comedy is not nearly as funny the second time, but it seems like Monty Python just gets funnier and funnier each time for me. Can't beat the dead parrot sketch.

    I like too many to list here, but i'm really into most any movie that is based on true facts,especially crimes, you know, art imitating life or the other way around. Three come to mind: Fatal Vision(husband in military,kills wife and kids)..Small Sacrifices(Diane Downs shoots her 3 kids),...The Buttafuoco case(Amy shoots lover,s wife),well you get the idea. Just call me "Columbo". Oh, and PS: Any movie that BETTY DAVIS is in !!!!..... Recent likes, Planet of the Apes, Training Day, Rush Hour 2,and just saw Meet The Parents, it was a hoot. I need some laughs after all that crime!!!!

    i like the based on facts movies too.
    fatal vision was terrifying. did you read the book? i hope that bastard rots in jail forever.

    knights that say nee is great...lol
    the thing about monty python...shows or movies is that every time you see them you find something else you didnt see the first time.

    Girl, don't get me started on this. Sometime i think i'm in the wrong profession. I am a murder mystery fanatic !! You know i read the book, and every time it comes on i'm there.I couldn,t think of the one where the husband kills the wife with insulin.

    I'm into comedy and murder mystery/Spy type movies.

    My husband is into Sci-fi and Horror.

    As you can guess we have quite a collection. Mostly we either buy or rent DVD's to watch at home. Only go to the Movies to see the one's with huge special effects.

    okay... I'm not a big movie person, but I have to say that two of the most interesting movies I have ever seen are "The House of Yes" and "Momento" - Both are just so incredibly bizarre that I just LOVED them!
