Daddy then preforms the marriage between the 2 after she has delivered the child?
That would be the southern US gerry springer edition of the movie

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

I'm seeing a trend here.

Third favorite movie of all time, perhaps?

Number 1. "The Man Who Knew Too Much"

Number 2. "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy"

That's your interpretation of what I said . But you can keep putting words in my mouth if you want.

Not MY best list...I was choosing for McBear. Swallow your merlot before you re read it, applying the titles to him.

As for your list, I agree with 1 and 4 (and grudgingly 5) but where is "Mandingo" and "Airport 77"?

Yeah but it's on Lifetime so he will inevitably beat her, cheat on her or set her bed on fire.
