My friends think I'm weird because of my favorite movie.
I'm very versatile in my movie choices.
One day I'll want to watch The House Bunny and the next day I'll want to watch Taken.
I love old movies, funny movies, stupid movies, romantic get the point.
Well, recently my friend asked me what my favorite movie was and I said, "I really like The Holiday."
Ya know, that movie with Jude Law and Cameron Diaz {and Jack Black and Kate Winslet?}.

My friend Jacob said, "THAT'S your favorite movie???" *With disdain in his voice*
What does he know?  His favorite movie is Forest Gump...
{I do like that movie though}
Well, the truth is, I love The Holiday because it helped me through a lot and continues to!
Ok, let me explain that...
In the movie, Kate's character is in love with a man who continues to lead her on and does not love her back.
Throughout the movie she meets a few characters who help her realize she is better than that.
She goes from being a helpless, pathetic, naive woman to a strong woman with gumption!
Gumption: Initiative, courage, spunk.
I LOVE that word and every time I watch the movie I feel empowered!
It might be silly, but I tear up every time I watch certain parts {I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it, but the tent scene...come on!}
So, I am NOT ashamed that my favorite movie isn't a "classic".
I think a persons favorite movie should be one that they can watch over and over and not get sick of it.
It should make them feel the same feelings when they watch it for the 36th time as it did during their 1st time.
Well, that's The Holiday for me!
Also, Jude Law is not too hard on the eyes!
Do you guys have a favorite movie that people make fun of you for or are my friends the only mean ones?
Haha I kid, I kid!

I'm off to a wonderful wedding with some wonderful friends now!
Have a great weekend!
