Ten on Tuesday - 10 Favorite Movie Moments

This weeks Ten on Tuesday topic is 10 Favorite Movie Moments. I like this one but it's a little challenging to choose moments. It's easy to choose films I like but the individual moments are harder to pinpoint. I'll give it a whirl though.

  1. Say Anything - There are so many quotable, notable moments in this one. I'm going to go with the iconic moment when John Cusack hoists the radio on his shoulders.
  2. Pretty Woman - When Julia Roberts goes back to the boutique that snubbed her earlier, shows then all her shopping bags and telles them they made a "Big mistake". Who hasn't wanted to do that?
  3. A Knight's Tale - I'd have to go with the end when Adhemar is "on the flat of his back" weighed, measured and found wanting. But watching Heath through the whole darn thing is fabulous.
  4. 10 Things I Hate About You - Keeping with the Heath theme here's another one I love. Especially the scene where he's serenading Julia Stiles in the stadium.
  5. Monty Pythonand the Holy Grail - It's all good but I'll go with the part where the knights get to the castle and run away as livestock is hurled over the walls at them.
  6. Philadelphia Story - Probably the scene where Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant are reminiscing down by the pool.
  7. Little Miss Sunshine - It's got to be the scene where Olive is performing the routine her grandpa taught her in the pageant. Hilarious!
  8. Slumdog Millionaire - How could you not love the closing number in the train station and the dancing?
  9. An Officer and a Gentleman - How can you not love the moment when Richard Gere comes into the factory and scoops up Debra Winger?
  10. Four Weddings and a Funeral - the 4th wedding of course, where Hugh Grant and Duckface do not get marrried but he hooks up with Andie MacDowell instead and they vow to be together, unmarried, forever.

1 Year of Clean HairAnd here a little giggle for today. Over the summer I won a blog contest that CursingMama was having. The prize was $100 gift card and a years worth of Pantene.

Since then DH, the girls and I have been waiting for the arrival and laughing about the idea of it. Of course it finally arrived when I was in Rhinebeck and here it is. We will certainly have the cleanest hair around.

What makes this even more amusing is that at any given time, all four members of our household will be using individual set of shampoo and conditioner. Nobody shares. Not only that but my girls will often have a dozen open bottles between them in their shower. They like to change it up from day to day.

It's only a flesh wound!

- glad the shampoo arrived, looks like more than a years supply to me :D

I love your list and found some new movies to watch, too. I guess I won't have to bring my own shampoo next time I visit, eh?

That's a great list. I love that scene in Pretty Woman. And I also loved Little Miss Sunshine. I just did the list too -- it was kind of hard!

Congrats on your big win!
