Hope Floats

I have a feeling I shouldn't like this movie.

Because it's...you know...

And I'm...you know...

Because it's kind of dumb, and predictable,
and it's got Harry Connick Jr. and Sandra Bullock in it.

Whereas I live in New York,
and listen to NPR,
and don't own a piece of Shade brand clothing,
and shop at farmer's markets...
because I'm a snob, okay?
That's why I feel like I shouldn't like it,
because I'm a cultural elitist
and feel that I'm supposed to be above movies like this.

Well, I'm not.
I love this movie.
If I see it on TV (which I do, often),
I watch it, and I love it.


  1. There will never be a time when I pass up a chance to watch Harry Connick Jr. No. Never.

  2. Really? No shade clothing? I live by the Shade tank-top. Only because I teach 13 year old boys...and there isn't one ounce of me that wants to show skin to a 13 year old boy. Gross. No cleavage, no back/bum.

    I've never given Hope Floats a try, but based on your recommendation, I will. Just when I get home and can watch it for free on Lifetime or TBS one Saturday afternoon. :)

  3. Plus, you've got to love those pink glasses. I know I do.

  4. Rachel: Duly noted.

    Lindsey: Totally understood. Full disclosure, I've been known to cross to the other side of the street when school gets out and I see youths approaching.
    And yeah, it's a TBS kind of movie experience. For sure. To be watched while drinking a giant fountain coke (this, Lindsey,is something we both miss).

    Marta: Ahh, I forgot about those glasses. And, I do love them...oh, Bernice.
