Kevin: Yes, why does there have to be evil?

Supreme Being: I think it has something to do with free will.

I showed Charlotte your post and she loved your suggestions.    :)
Glad to hear it! :)

Princess Bride she has seen and is one of her all-time favorites.  She has seen Charade (one of my childhood favorites) but doesn't remember it well.  And apparently she saw Singin' in the Rain and Penelope without me.   :-\

Regardless, I can pretty much guarantee that Audrey Hepburn will have some representation tomorrow night.  (Along with John Cusack; her one request for our marathon is Say Anything.)
If Princess Bride is an all-time favorite and she's requesting Say Anything, she clearly has excellent taste in movies. :)  Glad to hear you'll probably be spending some time with Audrey, too!


A few other ones I thought she might enjoy:
The Man from Snowy River
The Scarlet Pimpernel (the one with Anthony Andrews, Jane Seymour, and Ian McKellan)

Oh, and has she seen Ferris Bueller's Day Off??

She has seen Bueller and loves Bueller.  I, however, am in the hater's camp with that movie.

Funny part is - even though I've never liked it, I showed it to my kids because I thought they would.  When it turned out that they loved it, I didn't have the heart to tell them my feelings about the movie because I thought it would taint their enjoyment.

Brothers Bloom? It's a bit darker then some of the other films but also whimsical and joyous as well.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

Thanks, 'Noke!  She liked "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" so this may be right up her alley.

Everything that oldkid just posted!

These are the "staying awake" recommendations from my two 12 year-olds:

Bye, Bye Birdie
City Lights (my son and I laughted through this the other day. You might want to watch it earlier on, since dialogue helps to stay awake.)
Matilda (1996 oops)
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Support Your Local Sheriff
What's Up Doc
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory


They also LOVE Penelope!

Hope all goes well. You're an amazing dad.

Love this list, Sandy!  Support Your Local Sheriff was a favorite of mine as a kid.  City Lights sounds like a great title to start things off as well. 

Here's to hoping my library is well-stocked today.  Netflix Instant Queue is a constant disappointment lately.

Good luck with your marathon! I forgot to add the most important part from my kids. Swedish Fish! (if she can have sugar)
