What's All the Hullabaloo About?

If you are a lass like me you've probably watched Sleepless in Seattle countless times. In fact, my husband is always asking me why I seem to watch the same movies over and over again when I already know what's going to happen - "Because they're AWESOME!" I usually exclaim, "And they always will be!!"

It's true though - Sleepless in Seattle, though it's no Gone With the Wind, is one of those classic film romances that people, including myself, will never get tired of. The story is charming, quirky, and completely heart meltingly wonderful - Not to mention the soundtrack is amazing!

It wasn't long ago that I was watching Sleepless in Seattle for the millionth time and I realized that I had never seen the film that is so lovingly referenced by the women of Sleepless - An Affair to Remember.

Meg Ryan and Rosie O'Donnell together dreamily mouth the ever famous words of Terry McKay, "Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories... we've already missed the spring!" and Rita Wilson emotionally describes the heart wrenching, pivotal moment of the film as the men in the scene, Tom Hanks and Victor Garber, listen on, completely puzzled and clueless as to why she's getting so emotional.

What's all the hullabaloo about, I wondered?

It was clear to me that An Affair to Remember was a must see. So, there I was, snuggled up in bed, laptop in front of me, eyes glued to the screen.

I'm not sure what I was expecting - Actually, I guess I know exactly what I was expecting - A sappy love story that lacked the subtlety that most good films today possess. Wow, was I wrong! I realized I was watching two film legends, Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, and they shined together on screen with remarklable chemistry and incredible comedic timing.

I laughed {a lot}, I was giddy, I was frustrated, and oh yeah... I cried {Rita Wilson style}! I LOVED IT! A wonderful, WONDERFUL film that you must see {if you haven't already}!! Then you will truly understand what all the hullabaloo is about!
