Message in a Bottle

I am working on a crazy, fun quilting project with a couple of other ladies. We all have "homework" that we need to do on our own and then when we get together, we put it all together and reassign more "homework" so we can finish the quilt. So last night I did some of my homework. I was supposed to make 20ish little fabric circles called yo yos. I knew I would be doing this, so yesterday when Kendal and I were at the library, I got a movie to watch while I made the yo yos. I haven't watched a movie in a long time and I wanted something girly and romantic. I picked up the movie Message in a Bottle.



It looked girly and chick flicky and it wasn't rated R - perfect.

After the girls got put to bed, Emmitt and I stayed up and made yo yos and watched this movie. It is now on my Really Don't Like/Make Me Cry in a Bad Way movie list. It does not end happy! Movies that are totally predictable are not that fun, but then neither are the movies that end horribly!! This one ended horrible. I went to bed at midnight with my yo yos completed and with a snotty headache from crying, PLUS a horrible feeling in my heart from the story ending so terribly!


I was talking to my sister in law over Easter and she doesn't like the movie In Love and War for the same reason. Amanda and I watched that movie together and I agree. Why do they have to make movies that make you feel bad? I know life is not a bowl of cherries all the time, but I like movies that are or at least make you feel like everything will work out! By the way, I love Sandra Bullock movies, all but this one.



So this afternoon I was talking to my neighbor Debbie about my yo yo making evening and what a crappy movie I had watched. She mentioned another movie that fits in the same category - City of Angels. I watched this one a long time ago, but it ends up tragic too! I don't want to live in a fairytale world where things are always perfect, but I like my movies to be that way.


If anyone else has a movie in mind that I can add to my Really Don't Like/Make Me Cry in a Bad Way list, let me know. I will be avoiding them along with a sinus headache.

Marley and Me will make you laugh so hard through out the movie until the end. That is if you are a dog person. I cryed on this movie and I usually don't cry watching movies.

You need to get a good one like Love Actually. you might cry but its a good happy cry. Or Nottinghill or How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Find a romantic comedy not a romantic bawlfest.

mom said...

I loved Nottinghill,,,,I even bought the soundtrack,,,, Its so awesome.

Rob saw "Message in a Bottle" in the theater with his mom before we were married. He only went because it was the title to a Police song and he loves the Police, so the thought it would be cool. He hated it! To this day (10 years later) he still talks about how much he hates that movie.
Some movies on my list are "Steel Magnolias", "Pay it Forward", "Untamed Heart" and "My Life". I have a lot because sometimes I just have to have a reason to cry.

I balled all through Elizabethtown, and 27 Dresses and they both still ended good. Maybe I'm just a crier.

Camille said...

How about My Girl? And Man in The Moon? And I agree with Krista about Pay It Forward & Steel Magnolias. I've heard the Notebook is one to....my sister gave it to me for my birthday 3 years ago and I still haven't watched it because everyone tells me I will bawl my eyes out. Should I watch it???

Krista said...

My Girl and Man in the Moon are good ones. Camille, you should watch The Notebook. You will cry, but I do like the way they end it.

Rachel said...

Camille, the book is MUCH better than the movie (The Notebook) but they still did an okay job with the movie. You should crack open the wrapping and watch it!
I forgot about Man in the Moon. I remember that you liked that one alot too.
My Life, Krista, that one is a snot wringer. I remember that one!

Heather, there is something wrong with you crying all through 27 Dresses. I have watched bits and pieces of that one and it is NOT a cryer. You must be much more tender hearted than I thought!

Jenny said...

loved man in the moon, loved my life, loved steel magnolias, loved my girl, loved beaches, what is wrong with me and my sad twisted heart. I remember watching My life just to have a good cry! I think I have out grown that. Maybe.
As for notting hill, AMAZING, and Tori we need to talk about love actually! : )
