*blushes* P.S. I Love You   Gerard Butler is HOT and it makes me cry a lot.

Ha! One of my friends was/is obsessed with that movie. She saw it like 5 times when it came out and managed to drag me along one of the times.

And what did you think?  I have it in my queue but haven't seen it yet.  Read the book in about a day and a half and it was dusty in the room most of the time.

Rom-com wise, my guilty pleasure is The Truth About Cats and Dogs.  It's so easy to identify with Jeanine Garofalo's character and all her "my body isn't perfect" issues.  And it's nice to see that the pretty one isn't a bimbo or a bitch for a change.

I have a soft spot for that movie, too.  :)

All the recent John Hughes memoriums lately has me realizing how much of a soft spot I have for "She's Having a Baby".

I'd like to watch it again - it's been years. I wonder how it'll hit me now that I've actually had a baby?!  :)

Friday the 13th (particularly Parts 2-4, 7, and '09)

Ice Cream Man (starring Clint Howard)

Black Samurai (how can you not like a movie where the hero fights both a vulture and a snake, has a jet pack, and there's a midget cowboy swinging on a rope?)

Sports themed movies like Rudy, The Natural, We Are Marshall, etc.

Movies traditionally considered "chick flicks" like Steel Magnolias, Notting Hill, etc.

5 Ten Thing I Hate About You (cute, funny, Shakespearean)
4 Elizabethtown (popcorn movie at it's best)
3 Love Actually (I love romantic comedies, but don't tell anyone)
2 Beyond the Wall Sleep (movie based on the Lovecraft story by the same name. Not so good)
1 Final Fantasy: Spirits Within (just plain pretty)
