    I thought I knew Tom Hanks better than this! I only recognize 3 of them. 5 is Splash, 6 is Sleepless in Seattle and 7 is Forrest Gump, of course.

    My husband is a big fan so I have seen all of his movies, except for Terminal. Somehow I missed that one!

  2. Jo-Jo says:

    Hmmm…I think that no. 4 is Saving Private Ryan. I have always enjoyed Tom Hanks movies but I didn’t really care of the Da Vinci Code so I’m thinking that I probably wouldn’t like Angels and Demons either.

    Well, it was better than the Da Vinci Code film, but was a lot less like the book!

    The Money Pit is my favourite because I love comedy. When he brings down the scaffilding round the house and all the workmen scattering to get out of danger was hilarious and of course the wonderful Shelley Long was in it which made my day.

    I saw this movie recently again and it was just as funny now 🙂

    I just saw Angels and Demons last night, and thought it ws much better than Da Vinci Code. Hanks was better too. All things considered I liked it. Much much better than the first one.

    Oh yes, the Money Pit…oldie but a goodie!

    These were great, I love Tom Hanks! Apparently I didn’t pay attention to his name in most of these because I didn’t recognize all of them even though I saw the movie. He was such a riot in A League if Their Own and especially The Money Pit. I loved when the turkey shot out of the oven and the bathtub fell through the floor! I think I need to watch that one again!
