I love movies.

And I always have to checkout any Top 10 or Top 20, 50, 100 lists about movies. Currently, Yahoo has "The Top 10 Buddy Movies," which just happens to include 3 of my favorite movies. Ever. Actually, it has quite a few that I really like, but these have to be my favorites:

I've been known to like a Western or two, but Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is so much more. It has some of the sharpest, funniest dialogue (thank you William Goldman of Princess Bride fame), and it's just FUN! I can't wipe the grin on my face the entire time I'm watching it. And Paul Newman and Robert Redford in their prime. Yes, please! By the way, this photo is depicting the best scene, with the best line in the movie.

Some Like it Hot

Another comedic gem with classic dialogue. In fact, the last line in this movie is rated as one of the best last lines EVER. Jack Lemmon was one of our best actors and definitely one of the funniest. I'm not normally a Marilyn Monroe fan, but she's perfect as Sugar Cane. It's part musical, part mobster movie, part romance...all good!

Two words--"Vegas, baby!"

So here goes..."I've never seen any of those movies!"
There I said it and now I feel better....
