"Take a Wack at Weeza"

What is it about Steel Magnolias that makes me watch that movie every time I find it on the television? I don't watch tv during the day on week days. Come the weekend though and the television is a background fixture. I usually keep it on or near the Food Network for most of the weekend.

When I take the time to sit down and actually watch the television, I'm more willing to explore those channels rarely seen. And that is how I found Steel Magnolias today. What is it about this movie that makes me stop and watch. I've seen it a million times. I would never venture to call it one of my favorites. However, if it's on, I'll watch it. Maybe it's because Sally Field, Dolly Parton, and Shirley MacLaine(Love Weeza) are in it...I think more it's because Julia Roberts character dies in it. I love Sally Fields scene after the funeral, it kills me everytime! Either way I enjoy the stupid movie and will continue to keep getting sucked into it.

Other movies that I must watch...The Goonies(This I can say is one of my favorite movies), Don't Tell Mom the Baby Sitter's Dead, Monsters Inc, Jaws. There are more but I don't think I really know all of the movies that suck me in until I'm stuck watching one of them. Oh...Adventures in Babysitting also!

Which movies suck you in? Somehow I feel like this will be an ongoing list...


  1. How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days is my sucker movie. Grease and Pretty Woman are up there on the list too!.

  2. I always get sucked into Jaws when its on. I can't tell you how many times I have seen it. It's because I have a strange obession with sharks.

  3. Ooooh I totally have an obsession with sharks also! Since I was young, it was all about sharks. Mario is the same way.

    It's always good to find another sharkie!
