...My Humble Opinion...




If you follow my blog or read it occasionally, you know that sometimes I get very wrapped up in a show or movie ... and I love to talk about it...I happened on this movie one lazy Saturday afternoon and thought I would watch it for the heck of it(I was bored)...Unfortunately, I was hooked and miserably, I had to go somewhere... I didn't get to watch the whole movie that day.
***
After seeing half of the movie , it was stuck in my mind. I looked for it everywhere but because it's an old flick, I couldn't find it...not even in the grocery store!! I think I got on everybody's nerves around here talking about how much I wanted to see it again...but I figured they would get over it! Anyway, to make a long story short, my husband secretly bought a copy off ebay for me as a birthday present...It was a very sweet gesture but I wish he hadn't done that...I have watched it about 6 times since!!
***
I know this movie has been out for quite awhile. I must have been one of the few who have not watched this at one time or the other...I'm always behind the eight ball, anyway... Let me just end with this, I'm no Brad Pitt fan...but I'm becoming one...Tristan is part of the reason I have seen this movie over and over again...I'm a romantic at heart and he just makes you want to fix his problems and make everything better for him...a lost soul...
***
IF you haven't seen it ... see it! However, I don't want to be held accountable if you should get hooked on this like I have...you are on your own!
Take Care,
Tina

I was one of the few who didn't watch this movie either,till one day I was rummaging through the 5 dollar movie bin at Wal-mart and saw this. I thought what the heck 5 bucks I can spare it if it is a bad movie.. OH I LOVED IT!!! I still cry when I watch this movie.

Yes, this was a great movie! My friend was also obsessed with this movie years ago, and up naming her son Tristan! I've since heard of many more Tristans, and can't help but think this movie 'helped' in the naming of them! lol

That is one of my favorite movies! I'm not a TV or movie person but once in a while one comes along that I really, really enjoy. I understand what you are saying completely. I've watched it several times and you know I think I might see if I can find it. After all with it being rather chilly it would be a nice break. Thsnk you for reminding me.

I love this movie...hubby bought it for me when it was released years ago...one of my all time favorites...like you I can watch it over and over.
Brad Pitt is beautiful in this movie. I think I might be pulling it out this afternoon on this cold and rainy Sunday. Thanks for talking about it.
