        "I love to watch a well done, entertaining movie!!"

        I agree! I think The Paper, directed by Ron Howard definitely fits that description. There are so many funny lines in it and it's so well constructed. Everyone in it is great!

        He did such an amazing job on Apollo 13 too. But the suspense is so intense I think my pelvic floor would be watching it too LOL.

              "Love Actually" is one of my favourites. You can't help but smile and end with a hopeful good feeling.
