My Heart is a Puddle
Tonight I watched Pretty Woman all the way through for the first time ever. I want you to know that my heart was honestly melted. Turns out even prostitutes have souls and can make really great girlfriends. The next prostitute I see I will invite into my house and seduce.
Anyway, after watching that touching film (I am not joking when I say I was touched) I decided to go over a few similar shows that have turned my heart to butter:
1. While You Were Sleeping - This show is what first introduced me to Peter Gallagher, who would later steal the hearts of the nation as Sandy Cohen on the OC. Lessons learned: Goofing around on black ice will woo any girl. Next time you are on a date and spot some black ice, steer toward it and shove your date onto the black ice. She will have lots of fun, and she will fall in love with you.
2. Sleepless in Seattle - This movie was the beginning of the older-woman crush I would soon develop with Meg Ryan. It also helps us remember that Rosie O'Donnell was once much thinner than she is now. If you're unsure whether you will ever fall in love, after watching this show, you can take comfort in the fact that that special someone may just live on the other end of the country. And all you have to do is wait for their spouse to die.
3. You've Got Mail - The Meg/Tom duo do it again. The most important lesson to be learned from this film is that meeting people in person that you met on the Internet is safe, fun and a good way to fall in love. We need to get this message out to everyone, especially kids with internet access.
4. Return to Me - Gorrillas, Heart Transplants, David Duchovny.
Here is a link to an actual trailer from that movie that it wouldn't let me post for some reason.
I really do love these shows very, very much. I will watch any of these shows, with any one of you, any time you want. Which is your favorite? Any similar shows you are a fan of?
