I could watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation a million times and not quit laughing at it.

That and This is Spinal Tap and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Oh--and Some Like It Hot. And Love Actually.

Schell -- St. Elmo's Fire is one of my faves too. And I have to say, I'll watch P.S. I Love You whenever it's on but, I wouldn't buy it.

The other night, Dave was channel surfing and left the TV on AMC when he got up and went to bed.

The Snake Pit came on, and I was instantly drawn in and mesmerized, and sat there till the wee hours and watched the whole thing. I'd forgotten what a wonderful movie it is!

I also loved All This and Heaven Too. So deliciously tragic and melodramatic!
