Today, I'm thinking about big gestures and romance in film. Specifically--the Big Serenade. You know--when the hero humiliates himself and throws down some not very good singing or lip syncing, but is endearing and wonderful anyway. Something about those make me all oogly inside. The songs are almost always classics and it's a timeless way into my heart.
Here are some of my favorites:
I mean--Tom Cruise was so...normal then.
And how about Derek and Sydney?
Jerry O'Connell, you are really pretty to look at. And while I wouldn't throw you out for singing in the shower--I probably wouldn't take you to Karaoke either. Just sayin'.
Something about the Duckman--
And lastly, my all time favorite...
And now that I am crying--do you have any favorites?
