That line from My Cousin Vinny when they are in court and Joe Pesci asks Marisa Tomei: “Are you suuure?” My husband says that to me in just that way and I always answer “Positive!”

We are a family that speaks in film dialogue quite often, lol!

:rofl: I don’t think too many people are concerned about spoilers for an 81 year old movie.

On one geek group I’m a member of, the rule is, you have to include a spoiler warning if the movie/show is a year and a day old, or less. After that, it’s fair game.

LOL… My Cousin Vinny is such a funny movie and it has great quotes! I still say “yutes” all these years later.

The movies I’ve seen many times are:

  1. Jesus of Nazareth (Seems it’s on TV every Easter).
  2. Demolition Man (Love this movie!).
  3. Kung Fu Hustle ( This movie is hilarious ! ).
  4. A Christmas Story (Of course, this is on TV every Christmas).
  5. High Noon (SUCH a great movie).

Last Five for me: These are lesser known (perhaps for a reason) but are still very good, in my opinion.

  1. The Way (Martin Sheen, about a father finishing the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela started by his late estranged son.
  2. Mr Mom (Michael Keaton) - sentimental comedy about a recently laid off dad.
  3. My Life (also Michael Keaton, Nicole Kidman) - a man comes to terms with a fast moving fatal cancer. Very touching.
  4. I am Sam (Sean Penn, Michelle Pfeiffer) - a mentally challenged father tries to win back custody of his beloved young daughter.
  5. A Few Good Men (“You can’t HANDLE the truth” (Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore). This one is a more well known film.

A Few Good Men

I thought Jack Nicholson was just superb in that role.

Trivia: Nicholson’s line was different from “You can’t handle the true.” but he ad libbed the line and the director went with it.

I am Sam is really sad.

I saw that a while ago.

That’s one movie I wish TCM would have more often. I’ve only seen it once or twice and would love to see it again.

2.Pride and Prejudice (Jennifer Ehle/Colin Firth)—ok so not really a movie…

  1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

  2. The Scarlet Pimpernel (Anthony Andrews /Jennifer Ehle) —also not really a movie
