Nothing too taxing/arty/violent, nothing that will be compromised by being watched in 45-mins installments over a couple of nights. Just your favourite cosy/funny movies, please.

motorcycle diaries - gorgeous scenery, gorgeous men and great music and just brainy enough to make you feel good about yourself!

Snap Enid! That's my popcorn and ice-cream movie!
Also love the remake of Little Women with Susan Sarandon as Marmee...watched that the night before my wedding with my sister/best woman.
Favourite "stupid funny" movies have to be Steve Martin vintages...All of Me, The Jerk, and The Man with Two Brains. And of course...Some Like it Hot!

Um, Harry met Sally, that is, M/cycle Diaries might do bad things to my bp

Bit of a Heath Ledger moment I know, but A Knight's Tale and 10 Things I Hate About You do it for me when I need comfort food and entertainment.

You can't beat classic Tom Hanks, my fav is 'The Burbs' it's brill!

I watched 'Meet The Fockers' last night, that is pretty funny.

Also love Julia Roberts movies, 'My Best Friends Wedding' is a nice funny/cosy little film, so is 'Runaway Bride'

Just saw "Shall we dance" - cheesy, schmaltzy, totally predictable but excellent for a girl's night in - and Richard Gere in a tux, dancing.
Definitely cosy and quite funny too.

Dahlia · 12/03/2005 18:30

turquoise, I have just been to see Shall we Dance too - I loved it, really good chick flick - especially when Richard Gere came up the escalator in his dance kit - wow oh wow....
