  1. Jamie & I LOVE movies as well… I go for the UBER chick flicks and he loves the action. 😉 This is a great list to refer to! Thanks, girly! XO

  2. We LOVE Ocean’s Thirteen – we’ve watched it 4 times already and plan on watching it again this weekend. I am sure next time we’ll go for the Zorro date night, it’s such an amazing movie.
