In the spirit of this day of Love, here are some movies that made their mark on my heart. If you haven't seen some of them, I highly suggest you check 'em out. Or at least download them. : )
This started my love affair with John Cusak.....plus how can you go wrong with pork rinds and beer?
I saw this as a kid with my Mom, its a NYC romance during the seventies, Richard Dreyfuss won an Oscar for it....and I still want the little girl Lucy's American Flag lunchbox.
Watched this as one with my Mom as well, and when she visited last fall it happened to be on a movie channel, so we made Mike watch it with us, and he really liked it. It's one of those movies where they find love later in life, when they didn't think it would happen at all.
My heart belongs to John Hughes, and the ending of this, when Watt's gets the earrings, just makes my heart explode with happiness.
ANOTHER movie I watched with my Mom, I dare you not to cry at the end. And I dare you not to laugh when the little girl in the chorus sings "it's your conscience."
I had the poster to this one, the John Cusak love lives on. But I'm still mad that she actually gave him a pen.
This is my favorite. You want it to go one way, but it goes another way, then you realize, that was the right way. Plus the music is beautiful, and you can run to some of it.
Do you have a favorite movie for this day?
Happy Valentine's Day!
And Happy Valentine's Day to my Mama, who introduced me to so many of these great flicks.
