    1. I'm curious about number 8 on your did list. Other than that, your did list is so much more fun than your didn't list. I walk around with student papers as a punishment for my didn'ts too too too often.

      #8 guess you didn't like it? Rex Reed's personal attack on the lead got my butt in the seat. I enjoyed Melissa's performance & laughed at the best mis-matched buddy movie I've seen.
      I'd like to play words sometime with you & learn a thing or two.
