    I know I've been absent from these boards for awhile, but where else am i going to go when something pops into my head a propos of nothing...

    like, the movie "Quackser Fortune Has A Cousin In The Bronx."

    I remembered I liked it once upon a time and now that I've found the VCR, I might have to hunt it down and rent it.

    That thought led to the observation that I sometimes go for certain kind of sweet little movies (o.k. maybe they are "girl pictures", but they've got a nice little plot and piquant observations of life)...

    Cleo from 5 to 7
    A couch in New York

    so now it's your turn to tell me more of this kind of movie that I should seek out....

    And no, none of these are the best movie I ever saw but where else was I going to stick this thread?

    Nelly, last night I watched Don Juan DeMarco for the first time.

    A highly underated film from nearly 10 years ago.

    Its hilarious and Brando and Depp are awesome and the themes are extremely poignant.

    Though it can be classified as a romantic comedy, it never felt like one.
