Day #270: Movies, Movies, Movies

When there is nothing on TV, Netflix or Hulu (which is fairly often, actually) Bob and I have a couple of "fall back" movies that we both agree on. And we watch over and over again. 

1. Pitch Perfect

"Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition." - Source




Who doesn't love this movie? 

2. Morning Glory

"An upstart television producer accepts the challenge of reviving a struggling morning show program with warring co-hosts." - Source


Rachel McAdams plays Becky Fuller, a hard-working and ambitious news producer. It follows her from being fired and then finding a job on a failing morning show. It is a cute and quippy movie. I love it.

Rachel McAdams and Harrison Ford crack me up in this movie. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.


3. The American President

"Comedy-drama about a widowed US president and a lobbyist who fall in love. It's all aboveboard, but "politics is perception" and sparks fly anyway." - Source


Michael Douglas is plays the widowed president of the United States, who falls for a lobbyist (Annette Benning). Also, a cute and quippy movie!

4. Charlie Wilson's War


"A drama based on a Texas congressman Charlie Wilson's (Tom Hanks) covert dealings in Afghanistan, where his efforts to assist rebels in their war with the Soviets have some unforeseen and long-reaching effects" - 
This movie sounds serious, but it has some funny parts. I hesitated to watch it at first, but now I absolutely love it!



5. Moneyball

  1. You're making me want to see the American President one! My husband never, ever wants to see a movie again after he's seen it once. I don't understand. There's definitely movies I could watch over and over again--they're mostly the classic movies I grew up with, like The Princess Bride.

  2. I loved Pitch Perfect! My fall back movie has been Dante's Peak for the past few years. It's almost embarrassing how well versed I've become with the script.
