Stranded! September 14: Movies

This month's Stranded Linkup hosted by Shay at Mix & Match Mama and Erika at A Little Bit of Everything is all about Movies!!

I don't know about you, but this is a tough one! I love so many movies! I think these three I could watch over and over and over.

I think that I have to go with my all-time favorite movie as a child for the first pick.

1st Pick

Oh my gosh, you guys! I LOVED this movie SO much when I was little! Hayley Mills is my favorite! This version was the only one in existence when I was young, so I am biased and think this one is MUCH better than the Lindsay Lohan remake.

2nd Pick

I mean, who doesn't love Will Ferrell and his crazy antics?! And in a holiday movie!?!
We have watched this so many times during Christmastime and every other time of the year! My kids can quote many favorite lines!

3rd Pick

I think this one needs to be a newer comedy that my husband and I have watched so many times.

I LOVE Paul Rudd. And Jason Segel. They are seriously the funniest. "Anybody wanna peanut?" "Totes ma goats!" "Slap-ah da bass!" Sorry, if you haven't seen it (and you have NO idea what I am rambling about), and you need a laugh, please check it out! 

Honorable Mention!

I have only seen this movie once in the theater, but it was a great one! I look forward to watching it again!


My husband and I love to watch movies!  He is truly a movie buff, but I definitely enjoy them as well (when I have time)!

My 1st pick is...

It has everything that I love in a movie: romance, humor, and Christmas!

My 2nd pick is...

It has 2 of my favorite actors, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.  I love that the characters are wonderfully weird!

My 3rd pick is...

Image result for sense and sensibility

I love British films and anything Jane Austen.  I can truly watch it over and over!

My 4th pick is...

Movies with an all-star cast often don't live up to the hype.  This movie is the exception to that rule.  It has action and humor.  I have watched it many times!

I feel as if I have probably left some great movies off of my list, but these 4 are definitely on my list of favorite movies ever.
