    Only "Upper" Movies

    OK, for the next 34 days, only upper movies are allowed for us. Today we watched Christmas Vacation and now watching Underdog.

    Yesterday we watched The Road (very depressing) and Where the Wild Things Are (who knew a kid's movie could be a bit of a downer). That's why we need uppers...

    Any good movies you'd recommend to smile over?

    well does the line "you'll shoot your eye out" ring a bell.

    And from the 'indy' side "dirty filthy love' iirc the title properly. Stars the actress who played moaning Myrtle in the Harry potter movies. deals with Tourettes & OCD syndromes, but uplifting just the same.

    It has been on television lately and you probably have already seen, but I really enjoy Kung Fu Panda. It is a cartoon, but it has appeal for adults. I enjoy Jack Black and he was a great choice for the voice of the panda. I hear there will be sequel coming next summer. I hope it is a good as the original.

    I'd recommend for a funny "upper" movie

    A Fish Called Wanda
    or a Peter Sellers movie like Pink Panther or A Shot in the Dark
    The Princess Bride
    Moonstruck
    The Land Before Time (if you have little kids).

    But if you don't believe me, then here are the American Film Institute's 100 funniest movies of all time...
