Mine would have to be "There's Something About Mary" - not because I look anything like Cameron Diaz or that I like hair gel...but because for a while there I could relate to all the crazy people in her life trying to hunt her down.

The Marx Bros. Duck Soup would be mine. Fun, impossible situations, and decent jokes, what more could anyone want?

Sounds like a wonderful way to live! I am a fan of fun and impossible situations. Let's swap tales sometime. Sounds like another discussion topic :-)

Great topic urbangirl!! I think Wicker Park sums up my life pretty well. My previous boyfriend and I were kept apart by jealous people for their selfish reasons and they didn't care who they hurt in the process (my 13 yo sister was in love with him and insanely jealous that it wasn't recipricated) By the time we found out what happened I had met someone else. I still feel love for him, butit isn't practical to be together now.

Hi sweetee...your sister sure sounds very manipulative for a 13 year old. Wow. I haven't seen Wicker Park but I get the idea of what happened. Very interesting (and unfortunate) story.

I can relate to a lot of movies, but one that really hit home with me was Monster-in-Law. My mother in law hates me and worn black to my wedding, and that was after a series of fits that she threw when she couldn't do things for my wedding. Too bad my life didn't end up like the movie, but thats hollywood for ya.

Ooh sounds awful. I don't know how the movie ends but being Hollywood, I guess it was all resolved somwhow. Yes, unfortunately real life is not like that.

I probably relate most to Bill Murray's character in the movie "Lost in Translation." Much of my life feels like I have been living in "a foreign country" where I really never have quite understood what was going on around me... and meanwhile, people "from afar" have been trying to "direct" me without really having ANY clue as to who I am, and what my situation really is. But every now and then, a kindred spirit crosses my path, and we share a few moments of understanding. Then again, maybe I just described the entire human condition.

Hi Denmarkguy, That's quite deep and a little sad. Do you at least feel settled now in the US (are you originally from Denmark?).

Urbangirl, yes I'm originally from Denmark. I spent many years living in the conservative US south, and it was pretty much a 180-degree turn from the values I grew up with, as well as many of the values I had formed for myself. Life is a little easier these days-- I recently moved to the northwestern corner of the US, to a town where the general values and atmosphere is a lot more in keeping with how I relate to life. Sometimes being in the right PLACE can be as important as finding the right PEOPLE to be around.

That sounds like an interesting story there. Is it because your "best friend" got married to someone else and you thought it should be you? Do elaborate :-)

That is a hard one to answer but if I have to narrow it down I would say Walking Tall because even when the slicksters and the true evil ones who hide behind "class" and other cloaks of deception, I still up for what is right. Unlike most who bow down to false idols and cowards because society has trained them to do so, I respect what is right and not what is wrong regardless of what others think.
