Five Favorite Films

Everyone has certain movies that they can watch over and over and never get tired of watching. Every night I watch a movie before going to bed and usually it is a toss up between five. Does anyone else do that? I asked Clint what his top 5 favorite movies are and here is what we came up with:

My 5 favorite movies (in no particular order) along with a famous line from each (just for fun)-

1. My Best Friend's Wedding

Julianne: No. Creme brulee can never be Jell-O. YOU could never be Jell-O!
Kimmy: I HAVE to be Jell-O!
Julianne: You're never gonna be Jell-O!

I loooooove this Julia Robert's classic! I have literally been watching this movie since I was like 13 years old. I own it on VHS and am always watching it when I am at home. I also have it saved on my DVR in my current apartment and it is always a go to movie for me.

2. Julie & Julia

Julia: I'm Julia Child. Bon appetit!

I first watched this movie when it came out a couple years ago with my dad and we both were laughing the entire time. It was a great movie for us to watch together because we love food and really enjoyed this movie. Clint also likes this movie and after we watched it together he bought me Julia Child's cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I have cooked from it a couple of times and let's just say I have a long way to go until I am as good as Mrs. Child.....Bon Appetit!

3. The Office (all seasons)

Michael: That's what she said.

I know this is technically a T.V. show but since I own every season on DVD I am going to count it as one giant movie. I literally have the episodes memorized and still find myself laughing at every single episode. I love it!

4. The Little Mermaid

Ursula: Well, angelfish, the solution to your problem is simple. The only way to get what you want is to become a human yourself.
Ariel: Can you do that?

Yes, I am 22 years old and getting married in two months but I still enjoy Disney movies ( a lot). It was hard for me to pick once since I wanted to keep the list to 5 but it is a toss up between this, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahantas, Mulan, Hercules, Peter Pan and Robin Hood :) I will never grow up!

5. The Devil Wears Prada

Andy: So none of the other girls here eat anything?
Nigel: Not since 2 became the new 4 and 0 became the new 2.
Andy: Well, I'm a 6...
Nigel: Which is the new 14.

This movie is perfect from start to finish. It is funny, charming and has a great story. I love all of the four main actors- Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci. (side note: Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci play husband and wife in Julie and Julia).

Do you like any of my favorite 5 movies?

Clint's 5 Favorite Movies:

1. The Dark Knight

Joker: Let's put a smile on that face!

2. Iron Man

Tony Stark: Pour me a scotch, I'm starving.

3. Harry Potter (all)

Hermione: Now if you two don't mind, I'm going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed--or worse, expelled.
Ron: She needs to sort out her priorities.

4. Wedding Crashers

Jeremy: How many times are you going to do this? Rule #32: You don't commit to a relative unless you're absolutely positive they have a pulse.
John: Rule #16: Give me an up to date family tree. That was your mistake. You made me look like an idiot.
Jeremy: Rule #76: No excuses. Play like a champion!

5. Braveheart

William Wallace: They can take our lives, but they can never take away our freedom!
