I Am Sam (DVD, 2002) Other Editions...
Leading Role: Michelle Pfeiffer, Sean Penn
Director: Jessie Nelson
Actor Sean Penn displays another facet of his versatility as the title character of this inspirational tearjerker--a mentally handicapped father fighting for custody of his young daughter (Dakota Fanning). The child welfare board of his native Santa Monica has taken her from him, worried that at eight years old she has already begun to pass him in intellectual development. Sam's argument is that it's not brains but love that counts, and his case is taken by a stressed-out hot shot lawyer named Rita (Michelle Pfeiffer) who has her own problems dealing with her rebellious son. Anchored by his infectious love of the Beatles, the ceaselessly enthusiastic Sam becomes a positive influence on Rita as he raises a lot of questions about what's most important as a parent. Though it's Penn's show, Pfeiffer is so good she practically steals the film from him, and the startlingly precocious Fanning is not far behind. A warm soundtrack of Beatles covers and clever, fast-cut editing help the message of love and forgiveness shine through.

One of my all time favourite movies that never fails to make me both smile and cry, often at the same time.
From Academy Award Nominee Jim Sheridan comes this deeply personal and poignant tale of a poor Irish family searching for a better life In America. Through the eyes of their spunky daughters, two anguished parents find hope and the ability to once again believe in love and magic…even amidst the dangers of New York's harrowing Hell's Kitchen.
Shaun of the Dead may not seem like your typical "comfort" movie-but it's 100% hysterical! :) This movie is so clever and silly at the same time! I use it as my old standby whenever I need a sure winner for a good old-fashioned movie night. I think it's the best of the zombie comedy/horror flicks out there. Great movie!!
This movie is the perfect chick flick comfort movies for those rainy days where it's just you, a couch, and fire in the fireplace. What I find the most comforting about this movie is the fact that even though it's a beautiful romantic story, reality wins out in the end. But girls, don't forget the tissues!
This is supposed to be the audio feed from Britney's mic at Las Vegas concert, unmixed. (i.e. not what the audience hears.) Another site provided the link, but since it's in Polish, I can't tell you what it says.
I knew they sweetened up her voice in recordings and live, but this is just painful, it's so bad and off key.
I want this! I've seen all seasons probably a dozen times or more, but I really can't get enough of this show. It's been my ultimate fave show for as long as I can remember.. I'd love to have the whole collection!
