  3. W€hat a great list! I’ve seen many of these but I’m sorry to say that I haven’t seen several of the older classics. I’ve always wanted to borrow some from the library but it never seems to happen. A current favorite that I never get tired of is Steel Magnolias. I just love those southern women and how they can insult each other and still make it sound polite. There are so many wonderful lines in that movie. And anything that makes me laugh is always a good thing!
