Four Weddings and a Funeral
1. Mortal Kombat--no lie, this movie has a curse-like stranglehold on my psyche.2. Sideways--I know its a movie filled with bummed-out characters, but it always makes me smile.3. The Apartment/Annie Hall--depends what kind of romance I'm in the mood for: the classic kind or the neurotic.
Hook, Pride and Prejudice, and Clueless
do you... Hook, really? EEK! but which Pride & Prejudice?murtada for all three?james Ha! I appreciate the honesty. I suspect the answer to #1 is often of the guilty pleasure school.
die hardthe big lebowski - the dude always manages to cheer me up for at least 2 hourswhen harry met sally
1. The Manchurian Candidate on TCM has stopped me cold more than once2. Wonder Boys. For reasons I can't entirely articulate it fills me with good feelings. "Take a bow, James!"3. The Apartment. Romances get me when I feel like the couple really earned their happiness. That Serendipity fate baloney does nothing for me.
1. Weirdly, The Wedding Planner.2. Starter for Ten. Can't think of a better pick-me-up.3. Amelie, natch.
1) Best in Show2) Ghost World3) Swing Time! Seriously, this is not to make you feel guilty about the late post; this is my honest answer.
1) Clueless2) Anything Woody Allen 3) The English Patient: I like my romances tragic
1. Trouble in Paradise2. Hannah and Her Sisters3. A Foreign Affair. Jean Arthur rocks my little world. Seeing her toss those chairs on her way over to John Lund kills me.- Michael Shetina
1. Bridget Jones' Diary (sorry Nathan, love Renee!)2. Amelie3. In the Mood for Love, Crouching Tiger
1. Princess Mononoke2. Amadeus3. UHF
1. Bowfinger2. Monsters Inc.3. When Harry Met Sally
For all three, Moulin Rouge! Hands down.
The Truman Show, LOVE that movie!
Hah, the answer to all three is ANY romantic comedy. Literally if a romantic comedy is on TV, I must watch it, even mediocre ones like Two Weeks Notice and bad ones like Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Hugh Grant is obviously gorgeous in both. I've noticed I'll always watch Never Been Kissed also. And Clueless. Oh god and While You're Were Sleeping! I love romantic comedies.
1) Magnolia2) The Devil Wears Prada3) Before Sunset
1.) Mean Girls2.) Mean Girls3.) Mean Girls
1.Freaky Friday (with JLC and LiLo)2.Buffy on DVD (does that count)3.Eternal Sunshine...
1. The Shawshank Redemption or Bring it On2. That Thing You Do!3. While You Were Sleeping (2 and 3 are really interchangeable for me)
Legally Blonde. It ALWAYS lightens me up. Coincidentally, it's always on. I've probably seen it at least 80 times.Mean Girls would work as well.
1. The 40 Year Old Virgin (or Being John Malcovich, love Catherine Keener) 2. Adam's Family Values 3. Closer (It's romantic I guess...)
1. Pulp Fiction or Die Hard2. Raising Arizona3. The Princess Bride
1. Legally Blonde - It's ALWAYS on TV and it's also one of the funniest films ever.2. Billy Elliot3. Moulin Rouge!
1. All About Eve2. Beetlejuice3. A Place in the Sun
1. Babe2. Babe3. Babe
1. The Shawshank Redemption. Forever and for always.2. (tie) Being There and Harvey. I love characters who, no matter what happens keep the same happy, dopey disposition.3. When Harry Met Sally... My wife's favorite film, and I can't help but enjoy it as well.
1. Toughie. I did see the Wicker Man remake five times on HBO last year. I guess that one.2. Capote (God, I have no idea what that says about me)3. Love Actually or Breakfast at Tiffany's. One is the Ultimate, the other Definitive.
1. The Philadelphia Story2. The Philadelphia Story3. The Philadelphia Story
1. Terms of Endearment - and i always come in just in time for debra winger's goodbye scene with her kids. i'm a fuckin mess every time.2. The Pianist - when i'm really depressed i need something that makes my life seem not that bad.3. Moonstruck, big time
Anything by Jane Austen, an Agatha Christie mystery, Gosford Park and Fargo.
1. Die Hard 3 (no matter how terrible the dubbing of the cuss words are)2. The Big Lebowski3. High Fidelity
1. Clue. Always.2. Being Julia. That laugh! so infectiously cheerful.3. Moulin Rouge!
1. Deja Vu. I've seen that movie an obscene amount of times. 2. Raise Your Voice always cheers me up. Hilary Duff singing that final number. *Tear*3. Knotting Hill. It's one of the cutest romantic comedies ever. Fun questions!!!
# ...Thelma & Louise. Generally I start crying the moment it comes one.# ...Showgirls. Honest.# ...Sleepless in Seattle. I really do love that movie.
So I stole some others but oh well...1) How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Clue2) Sideways or What about Bob3) Brown Sugar
1. To Wong Foo... - I have no idea.2. Beauty and the Beast3. Beauty and the Beast
1 - The Parent Trap (60's version). Maurine O'Hara was just glorious in that.2 - Clue. The Oscar nominated actresses completely steal the show. A comedy highlight. 'Husbands should be like kleenex. Soft, strong and disposable.3 - Moulin Rogue! But of couse
Groundhog Day fits all three for me.
"While you were sleeping" is all I can think of right now.
1.American Beauty2.Indiana Jones....any of them.3.Moulin Rouge!
oh boy, how to limit the choices?! :p1. dunno, way too many to list! but actually not likely to here 'cause if they're on TV they're dubbed!!! :o(2. The Princess Bride (if I'm sick) or The Goonies, Bride and Prejudice or Meet Me In St Louis (if I need cheering up)3. Pride and Prejudice (both the BBC and the movie)
The answer to all three: '60s Batman.Oh, there's romance..."...holy heartbreak, batman!'...and compassion for other people:"They may be drinkers, Robin, but they're still human beings."...and life truths:"Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb...":D
Nathaniel-I was thinking for all 3 yes but I can be specific :1. My best friend's wedding, saw bits of it jst last weekend while surfing2. Four Weddings or Devil weas prada3. Brokeback, Now voyager or the way we were are my fave romantic movies
1. Titanic -- I'm all Kate all the time.2. Nine to Five -- Tomiln, Fonda and Parton just make me smile. Brilliant!3. Love, Actually -- Christmas time in London. It doesn't get better than that.
1. Mean Girls. I saw it in the cinema, my dvd copy is almost unplayable from overuse and still whenever I see it in the tv listings, I'll drop whatever I'm doing to slump in front of the set and speak the lines along with the characters. Also, Casablanca. I always begin by telling myself I'll only watch until Ingrid Bergman comes in, or just until the Marseilles, but nah - the whole thing sucks me in every time. And, um, Ms Congeniality.2. I didn't even need to think about it, the answer is Hannah and her Sisters, easily. That film is my comfort blanket.3. Moulin Rouge, I guess. Except I always turn the dvd off after the final song, so Satine lives forever! And also, Now, Voyager and The Awful Truth.
That should be 'La Marseillaise', obviously.
Ordinary People. Cancel all plans, there's not a scene I'm impervious to. Or Clueless. There's no explanation, but it has happened a lot, and I see I'm not alone.Big Chill, or all six hours of Pride and Prejudice.You've Got Mail. I only need the last 25 minutes. Or all six hours of Pride and Prejudice.
sphinx and GregWA I love the movie to suit all needs. heepsf Nick and I have actually discussed this. The Bening has the best screen laugh in the business. It sounds so real. And it's contagious and ... how hard would it be to act laughing? So hard, I'd think
1.- Some like it hot2.- Witness fro the prosecution3.- The apartmentI guess it's all Wilder for me.
For all three questions:Bring It On, Somewhere in Time, and Strictly Ballroom.
1. So many movies fit this bill, but I just touched on this phenomenon with regards to Poltergeist the other day.2. Muriel's Wedding - I always forget all the sad parts of this movie beforehand (Her mother! Gah!) but I still leave it every time (and I've seen this movie dozens of times) with a huge smile. Goodbye, Porpoise Spit! Although Wonder Boys is a great, apt choice for me too.3. Hitchcock's Notorious is the most romantic movie ever made, so that, although lately it's also been Punch-Drunk Love or Eternal Sunshine too.
1. sideways. or lately, "year of the dog"...it's always on...i don't know why i watch it over and over. 2. It's a wonderful life....or peggy sue got married. 3. easy....Moonstruck.
1. The Silence of the Lambs or, at the very least, I'll stick around for Hannibal's opening scene.2. Singin' in the Rain ALWAYS puts a smile on my face...especially Jean Hagen. Either that or Mommie Dearest3. Brokeback, I guess, although that's just not right, huh?
Kal ho na ho ...A Story Of A Lifetime.......In A Heartbeat(Tomorrow May Not Be, USA DVD box title)
Before Sunrise or Before Sunset on all accounts.
Joe Wright's Pride and Prejudice.
HolidayOut of AfricaHeathers
omg these answers are making me want to pop up 20 movies i don't own into the dvd player. ayiyiyiyi. so many good choices
always, answer for all 3 questions, Bridget Jones Diary!!!
1. Poltergeist2. Poltergeist3. Dead Poets SocietyMichael in DC
1. The Devil Wears Prada ("yeah, I'm hearing this and what I want to hear is...this." LOVE Emily Blunt.)2. Amelie 3. Carrie (Ok...this is stretching "romantic" a little bit, but that scene where Carrie and Tommy are dancing and the camera circles around them is the most romantic scene in the history of cinema for me.)
1. Selena - And it is ALWAYS on! Makes me laugh, cry and sing along. My friends all make fun of me because they know that if Selena is on, I have an uncontrollable desire to watch it. They don't even try to stop me anymore.2. The Little Mermaid - Sick, sad, lonely, whatever, that movie is a fail-safe to lift my spirits.3. Brokeback Mountain - Is there anything else to say that hasn't already been said? (especially by Nathaniel...)
1) Anchorman (that's just plain fun)2) Garden State (does that make me more depressing?)3) Love Actually? (Oh now that's embarrassing)
1. Titanic(which is absorbing every time i see it, i don't care what anyone thinks. or Night of the Hunter( which is my all time favorite movie)2. Night of the Hunter because a good villain always takes my mind off my problems.3. i guess Titanic
1. Can't turn away from Moonstruck if I happen to click on it, no matter how often that happens.2. Top Hat always cheers me when I'm down.3. For romance, Notting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral, You've Got Mail...I'm a cheesy girl.
For all three:Sense & Sensibility )
1. The Devil Wears Prada2. Go3. Threesome (does anyone else remember this movie?)
1. Back to the Future - Because no matter how many times I've seen it, I have to make sure Marty gets back to 1985.2. Working Girl - This movie has all the ingredients for a mood enhancing drug: a classic comeuppance, Carly Simon’s ballad, and Joan Cusack’s accent. (“It’s not even leatha!”) 3. Brief Encounter - Heartbreaking, but so beautiful. A treasure.
1) Legally Blonde2) Steel Magnolias3) Erin Brockovich
1. I usually hate not watching films from the very beginning, but if Down With Love is on I can't resist. Also Mary Poppins unless it's the Andrews-less section.2. The Purple Rose of Cairo. (Ignoring that it has a sad ending...)3. Before Sunrise forever.
1. Jackie Brown or Dazed And Confused2. Opposite of Sex - Christina Ricci makes me smile :) OR the "Once More With Feeling" episode of Buffy!3. Some Like It Hot - it works, don't ask me why.
1. Kill Bill2. La Strada 3. Eternal Sunshine
1. Pretty Woman2. White Chicks3. Notting Hill
BeRightBack -- i remember Threesome and I've actually been curious to see it again. No one ever talks about it. I remember it being really wimpy scared of actually being a threesome movie though ;) Kamila --white chicks? Why you wanna hurt me?
1. Christmas Vacation 2. Notting Hill3. Brokeback Mountain
Vertigo answers all three of those for me.
1. Casablanca. Cannot take my eyes away. 2. Groundhog Day. Funniest movie ever? I think so.3. Love Actually. It makes me swoon. That and Amelie too.
1. A League of Their Own2. I Love Lucy (I know this is TV but its the best thing to cheer someone up)3. Notting Hill
1. The American President. Uh. I was a government major?2. The Lord of the Rings trilogy, which is apparently the cinematic equivalent of comfort food to me.3. Before Sunset. This has been said before but PERFECT ENDING.
Sideways actually for all three.I like that it touches on all three of these things, without overpowering them.Maya's speech is the most romantic thing I've seen since the movie came out.
My answer all in one is "Good Will Hunting" because 1) it's ALWAYS on 2) I know the script by heart, which is surprisingly uplifting and 3) I'm not a particularly romantic person.
moses so true. God, Madsen was so moving in that movie.
1.) AMERICAN BEAUTY2.)(if wallowing) LEAVING LAS VEGAS/ (if want to feel better) ERIN BROCKOVICH3.) BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN
I think I can say Catch & Release for 1-3,though that doesn't reflect on it being a masterpiece of a film. It's just the most adorable movie, the girl is right the guy is right the friends are right the kid is right, the whole cast fits perfectly. I could probably add Pride & Prejudice (2005) and Jeux d'enfants(Love Me If You Dare) to no 3.
I cant rank these :/- Grandma's Boy- Starsky & Hutch- Mallrats- A night at the Roxbury- You Dont Mess With The Zohan- Once Upon A Time In Mexico
