Prescription For Happy Ever After-- Michelle Monkou

October arrived with much fanfare with the upcoming U.S. elections, ongoing presidential debates, market stabilization (sounds better than bailout) legislation, gas lines/shortages in the southwest, and recovery after Hurricane Gustav.

Now more than ever people need that Happy Ever After.

With a bowl of popcorn, soda, and a warm blanket, I have a short list of memorable movies that could provide a few hours of escape and leave you thinking that the world will right itself.
Feel free to share your list.


Gorgeous Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche

Thomas Crown Affair (1999 version)

Sexy Irishman Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo

Dirty Dancing

"No Keeps Baby In the Corner" Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey


Funny & Charming Will Smith and Eva Mendes

And while you're at it, check out my October release - Gamble On Love.

Great list!

I think I'd add "Kate and Leopold," "Sleepless in Seattle," "Sabrina," "You've Got Mail," and "Sweet Home Alabama" to my list.

I would include "There's Something About Mary" and "Kissing A Fool."

Michelle, I totally agree with you about the Thomas Crown Affair--one of my all time favorites!

Great list. Thanks!

Great idea - watch a great movie or read a great book and don't watch the news.

Some great movies. I hardly ever get to watch a movie and when I do I can't enjoy it.

Oh I love your list! I would add also, "Pretty Woman", "The Wedding Planner" and "My Best Friend's Wedding".
