I could answer a lot of these, but not all of them. Mayhaps I will steal this over the weekend and add a few.

Dangit, though, I can't add Amy Sedaris yet, as I haven't seen the SWC movie.

Just the kind of diversion I was looking for. I just got done posting it. That was FUN!

Bucky, you can say you watched SWC, vicariously, through me. Looking forward to seeing your list.

tshsmom, just got done commenting at your site. :)

Wow--that was fast--thanks for playing! I REALLY want to watch Chicago--still haven't had a chance--hubby doesn't want to rent it--too much of a chick flick, in his opinion--I somehow don't think so!

Effie, playing this one was fun. And Chicago is not just a chick flick. There's violence, corruption, and lots of great music!

I LOVED FRENCH KISS! The favorite line is when Meg gets to France and, in a voice dripping with exasperation, throws her hands up and says "Beautiful!", drops her hands and continues walking. Classic.

Boy, I sure couldn't tell that you liked Love Actually. ;-)

I might do this one, if I can copy and paste it into movable type.

Oooh, oooh! I am the world's worst movie-goer/watcher, as I can never remember which I've seen or who was in them. But I'm always, always looking for something good to watch! So, you've now provided me with not only your own great list, but now I can link to others' lists to have a giant list of movies recommended by friends, when my husband asks the dreaded question, "SO, are there any movies you want to see?" when he stops at Hastings. This is AWESOME!

Mr B, I saw that you added that one over at Effie's. He's good, but I'd rather watch his son.

Jim, isn't that a fun movie? I like Kevin Kline, too.

Danielle, well Actually, yes! tee hee
It's a really good movie. The writing's good, the acting's good There are so many stars in it, but they never step on each other or try to overpower. That's one of the things I really like about UK actors, most of them see it as a job, not a chance to be worshipped. If you see it let me know.

I hope you can play, too.

Eclectic, well, I can see that you probably won't be doing a list, but it's always nice to have a few choices in mind when it's time to rent.

I really do recommend Love Actually. It's not just a chick flick, in case your husband's worried about that sort of thing. ;)

Hmmm… I seem to have missed a lot of movies—and movie stars—through the years.

Kittn, tee hee. ;)

Nick, ever since VCRs and, now, DVDs I've watched many, many more movies. I really enjoy it.
