I mentioned about a month ago of our little HBO freebie. It was a very wonderful movie month indeed. After the month was up I had to call and cancel it to avoid paying for it, so I begrudgingly dialed the cable company and got just the about the sweetest cable lady on the other end.
Me: "Hi I was told to call and cancel our free month of HBO today" (tear drop falling).
Cable Angel: "Well okay...would you like to add it to your account to get it regularly?
Me: "No thank you...I just don't think we'd get our money's worth"
Cable Angel: "Okay well how about I let you try out another month with HBO and the other 3 movie channels".
Me: (Picking up my jaw off the floor to proceed in a happy dance) SERIOUSLY!! Of course we would...you had me at free".
So, we are now officially on movie channel overload. I'm getting diddly squat done on the weekends. We'd never keep it, just too expense for only getting to watch a couple movies on the weekends. But I am loving to watch all these 1980's movies that come on it.
I LOVE 80's movies...you can't go wrong with the music and of course the stylish side ponytails. I was born in the early 80's so most of these I have fond memories of renting later on. One of my favorite's that been coming on is The Money Pit. Do rent this if you've never seen it!
And what would be more appropriate talking about cheesy 80's movies than a top 10.
1. Baby Boom- hands down is one of my top favorite movies of all time.
2. Christmas Vacation- we watch this every Christmas!!
3. 3 Men & a Baby
4. Funny Farm
5. Look Who's Talking
6. Ferris Buller's Day Off
8. Girls Just Want to Have Fun
9. The Money Pit
10. Turner & Hooch
Oh, I could seriously list 20 because Ghostbusters could be a close 11. This list makes me want to run to blockbuster! Okay, so add away y'all. I used this site to double check some years. Some I thought might have been 1990, but worked out.
Can't wait to hear your favs!
