It’s Friday again ALREADY, so that means it’s time for . . .

My “Aloha Friday” question this week is: 

 DOES YOUR FAMILY HAVE ANY VERY FAVORITE MOVIES

THAT HAVE BECOME CLASSICS FOR YOU???

When our kids were growing up, we all came to love:

  • The Princess Bride
  • Christmas Vacation
  • The Great Outdoors
  • Overboard

Now that they’re adults (pretty much!), we still come together around these movies, especially around the holidays!

HOW ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY–WHAT ARE YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE MOVIES?  ONES YOU ENJOY SO MUCH  THAT YOU CAN QUOTE YOUR FAVORITE LINES?

For instance. . .

  • The Princess Bride–“As you wish!”
  • The Great Outdoors–“Big, b-i-g, b-i-g, BEAR!”
  • Overboard–“Everybody wants to be me!”

DO SHARE!!!!!!

      How did I forget “A Christmas Story?” One of my grown children’s all-time favorites! “You’ll shoot your eye out!” “The leg lamp,” etc., etc.

  2. Audrey Says:

    Due to the age difference between my kids, we never all liked the same movies at the same time.

    My daughter’s library of movies that she plays over and over again are:

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas (w/Jim Carey)
    My Big Fat Greek Wedding

    We didn’t do much as a family when it comes to movies. I do still love Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman, I always watched those on TV growing up. Of course Disney movies were all good. The Rescue Rangers is my favorite.

    We really like
    Finding Nemo

    We always sit around with alll the family and watch Christmas Vacation followed by Christmas Story. The memories of watching those movies we have passed to our children and during the movies at different times the kids will say a line at the same time of the movie. Our youngest did it this past year she was only 6 and came out with “You’ll shoot your eye out” we almost fell off the couch. Couldn’t believe she knew exactly when to say it…or the beloved “she’s a beaut Clark” from Christmas Vacation.
