Up - 9
Funny People - 9
Whatever Works - 9
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - 8

 :D It's a great line. Basil is right about the film though.

I'd love to see a your video collection top 20. I'm hoping there's room for Wild Wild West on there as well.

The great thing about my Wild Wild West vhs is that it includes the Will Smith video (with sisqo!) at the end of it. Worth it just for that.
