7. I have a poor success rate at passing these things one and as this is rather old now, most have probably done it. I don't recall seeing this at TSO's however--so TSO, if you're so inclined.

I LOVE your movie list! Very unexpected. I loved Legally Blond and Miss Congeniality as well.

Have you ever seen Overboard with Goldie Hawn? You might just like it!

Dear MamaT,

I forgot Overboard, maybe because it's a little bit older. But there was a time when I had to replace my VHS tape of it. Yep--I LOVE Overboard too. And once I have it on DVD it will rejoin the ranks. Thanks for the reminder.
