  • To cry--an old one "Imitation of Life" I just see the opening credits and I am in tears.
    To cry and laugh --"Rent" I am into that movie--dvd--cd
    To laugh--"Fargo"
    To smile--new one "Mama Mia" I was surprised with the songs I knew.

  • Moulin Rouge? I couldn't even finish that movie it was so weird...and I usually like musicals! I liked Nine Months, Fools Rush In, Knocked Up, Juno, Father of the Bride 2, Waitress, A Walk in the Clouds, The Notebook, World Trade Center, Carousel, and yes I own Ladder 49! I love it I cry every time pregnant or not. Then again, I am a huge Joaquin Phoenix fan. My absolute favorite is The Story of Us. I own that too and also I cry every time...that's when I cry the most, is watching emotion-filled movies like that. I don't cry that much otherwise.

  • I watched Snow White in the local theatre in the mountains of Cayey, Puerto Rico in 1977. It played for four months and I used to go three times a week and watch the whole thing, laugh, cry, and sing at the top of my voice in the empty ,dark, airconditioned, theater. "Hi ho!!!, Hi ho!!!!!" Ricky loved it too and he loved for me to sing the songs to him after he was born.
