Thursday Thirteen - 13 Happy Endings

Mom is hijacking my blog to show 13 of her favorite movies. They all have happy endings. As do most of the movies she buys.

Here they are, in alphabetical order:

1. A Room with a View
2. Bull Durham
3. How To Steal a Million (with Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole. Mom says you GOTTA watch this one!)
4. The Illusionist
5. Monsoon Wedding
6. Mostly Martha
7. The Natural (actually, Mom is NOT a baseball fan)
8. Persuasion
9. Pride & Prejudice (she LOVES Jane Austen)
10. Sliding Doors
11. Shakespeare in Love (well, OK, maybe this one isn't quite a happy ending)
12. The Shawshank Redemption
13. Strictly Ballroom
Of course, there are others, but this is a Thursday 13.


And DMM... perhaps a wager on The Game this weekend? Between my Guys Named Pat and your Bolts?

" Shakespeare in Love " is one of my favorite movies. Even it's not quite happy ending~ But, it's a mystery :)

Really touching, always makes me leaking all the time.

Great choices Lynne. My mum loves Persausion and Pride and Prejudice too. Have you seen a movie called Pocession? It is the movie of the book by A A Byatt and is definately worth it if you like a good costume romp.

Mom loves Monsoon Wedding and she has that movie. She usually watches really old movies and her favorite actress is Ingrid Bergman. Her favorite movie of all time is Indiscreet with Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. It has a happy ending too!

Our Mom says she has seen and loves most of the movies on your Mom's list. She is embarrassed to confess that she's seen A Room with a View maybe... 100 times! She will make sure she watches the ones she hasn't seen yet. (^_^)
