30 Days of Movies - 1. Your Favourite Movie

Hopefully you don't get sick of this (or hopefully I don't get sick of it and stop part-way through), but I've decided to do the 30 Days of Movies Challenge. However I don't plan to post one every day, and more than likely I'll have other posts in between, so it may take a while - so bear with me. I hope you find my answers interesting, and may make you choose to watch (or avoid) some movies I suggest!

Day 1: Favourite Movie.
When I was deciding whether to start this challenge or not, I first checked whether I actually had answers to all the questions, so I wouldn't run out of things to say half way through the challenge and abandon it. The one that I had the most trouble with however, was this one. Picking just one favourite movie was extremely hard. However it is not the movie I've seen the most times, nor does it have my favourite actors. However it does always make me smile, and one thing I do love about it is that I saw it before I met Husband, and I was happy to find out he loves the movie too and so we can always watch it together (awww/vomit!). It is: The Wedding Singer.
Some Adam Sandler movies are very silly and nonsensical, but this one has just the right amount (for me anyway) of random whimsy. It is also extremely sweet. The songs Adam's character comes up with "Somebody Kill Me Please" and "I Wanna Grow Old With You" are great. It has one of my favourite movie quotes ever (though I ended up picking another one for that category later on so as to not double up): "He's losing his mind... and I'm reaping all the benefits!" 

I can't seem to get the gif to work, so click the picture! [via]
Questions for you:
What's your favourite movie?
What do you think of The Wedding Singer? Love/Hate?
Will you find this challenge boring/annoying to read?
Any bets on when I give up and abandon this challenge? :P

P.S. Want even more movies? Gina is also doing the 30 days of movies challenge (which is where I first saw it) and Kirsti is doing Movie Mondays.


  1. -I hate picking favorites, but I think my fave movie is probably The American President. I think. Maybe.
    -I haven't seen that movie in YEARS. I think I need to rewatch it, because I can't even really remember what happens. Other than singing :)
    -I'm excited - I love these things and learning more about what people like! Plus, I might find some new movies to watch!
    -No bets :)
    Forgive me for being such a horrible blog friend lately! I've finally just gotten my reader all organized again (it was scary) and am trying to catch up with everyone!

  2. I love 'The Wedding Singer', it's one of my favourite movies too! Good choice :)

  3. I LOVE The Wedding Singer. I don't think I could ever get sick of it. And yet, it's one of those movies that always seems to slip through the cracks and I forget about it for six months, and then find the DVD and do a happy dance.

    I can never really decide on my favourite. There are too many to choose from. It's probably a tie between The Princess Bride, Love Actually, and Pirates of the Caribbean. The first one, obviously. The others were a bit rubbish...

  4. -My favorite movie changes day-by-day. Most recently, it's Puss N Boots...and will remain so until I see another great flick. However, I've always had soft spots for The Shawshank Redemption and Forrest Gump.
    -The Wedding Singer was a pretty good movie. Adam Sandler in his prime, long before he picked some much more questionable roles.
    -I freaking love movies, so this will never bore me.
    -Stick with it all the way!


  5. What's your favourite movie? Robin Hood, Men In Tights. Could watch it with my eyes closed.
    What do you think of The Wedding Singer? Love/Hate? I wouldn't buy it but I'll always watch it on TV. So I guess I like it a fair bit.
    Will you find this challenge boring/annoying to read? Hehehe no way! I love reading people's lists - fascinates me :)
    Any bets on when I give up and abandon this challenge? :P You'll make it through it eventually :)

  6. I have a lot of favorites but if I had to pick just one it would A Knight's Tale.

  7. ohhh, I'm excited to see what all you pick, maybe I'll discover/remember some good movies from your list. The Wedding Singer is a good one!

  8. Oh god yes I love this movie! Whenever I'm feeling blue about something I always sing the "somebody kill me please" song in my head. "I want to diiieeeee put a bullet in my heeeaaaaaaaaaddddd"

    Oh Adam Sandler.

    Favorite movie all time? Ugh that's tough. Little Women has to be up there, if only because it's my go to "I'm feeling crappy" movie. Amelie and Princess Bride are honorable mentions.


Hooray! Thanks for commenting :)
