Up Too Late

Last night I stayed up way past my bedtime. About 9 o'clock I discovered that the Betty Broderick story was on Lifetime Movie Network.

It is one of my all-time favorite movies. I've seen it dozens of times. It's a long movie, too. So I watched the entire movie again. Then guess what? It came back on again. And guess what? I stayed up and watched it again. This morning I could hardly pry my eyes open.

It's a fascinating movie to me. She was one mean lady.

There are several other movies that I've watched over and over. I'll even watch them back to back if they're played back to back.

Of course, if you know me at all, you know this one is my most favorite. I've seen this one more times than I care to admit. Even seeing this movie poster makes me want to pull it out of its case and watch it right now.

Driving Miss Daisy is one I'll watch anytime it's on, too. I love Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman. It's definitely one of my favorites. Such sweet southern charm. I love it.

Kathy Bates is one of my favorite actresses. I love everything she's been in. Misery is a great movie to me. If Jeff comes in the room and I'm watching it, he promptly turns around and walks back out. He hates it. In fact, I do believe he hates all of these movies that I love.

Ahh, Dolores Claiborne. Another great one with Kathy Bates. Dark and very disturbing. I love it.

I can kill two birds with one stone by watching Fried Green Tomatoes. I get a Kathy Bates fix and a Jessica Tandy fix all at the same time. Won't flip the channel if I come across this one either.

Not sure why I like this one so much, but I do. I'll watch it over and over too.

I'm not all morbid. Who doesn't love Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde? My favorite part is after she and her boyfriend break up and she's in the bed eating the chocolates. Love it when she comes across one she doesn't like and just throws it across the room. My kinda gal.

These are reasons why I might stay up too late. And believe me, there aren't many, but one of these movies will do it every time. How about you? What movie will you stay up late to watch, even if it's the one hundredth time you've seen it?

Till next time. Happy Friday!!!

NOT one movie will make me stay up late, either because I am a wimp or I'm OLD... ok maybe a little of both! I can always catch it when I am not sleeping:)


Love you, Auntie T

How funny! I was going to say Legally Blonde. Dumb & Dumber all the way, any time, all the time... I'll do Titanic, too. There's more for sure...

They all are good movies, but like Theresa I am a whip or old, lol or both, I usually fall asleep half way through the movie if it is on after 9 have a good day, and a fabulous weekend. Hugs Barbara

I love Never Been Kissed. I can stay up late for that one! I cannot watch scary ones like Misery at night. No way! I would dream about Kathy Bates all night. I love the new show she has on tv... Harry's Law! She is awesome! xoxo
