Mr. Magorium’s Magic Emporium did it for me.
Also The Delivery Man and The Internship (both Vince Vaughn &/or Owen Wilson).
And The Book Thief.

@Dan_Lyons I was thinking of purchasing “The Book Thief” book. I didn’t know there was a movie too!

“The pursuit of happiness.”

Chestnut: Hero of Central Park

It’s touching and funny, in an innocent way. The main characters are two little girl and a dog (which is enough to demonstrate how light-hearted and innocent it is). It makes me feel positive for the relationship of animals and people.

None. Movies do not effect me emotionally.

I need no movie to feel that way, that shit comes natural, but a bloody fine comedy always makes my heart sing a little louder.

Stir Crazy
Blazing Saddles
Young Frankenstein
Monty Python…etc

@flip86, really, never touched by a movie? I have a hard time imagining that with so many films out there. I’ve got my mother and grandmother to thank for my love and appreciation of movies.

Dirty Dozen—> it showed how a bunch of misfits and ne’er-do-wells can coalesce into a working, motivated unit

The Great Escape—> Man’s strength and single mindedness

Casablanca—> the power and strength of character

Love Actually—> things, do eventually work out in most cases

@elbanditoroso If you liked the Great Escape, check out the Password is Courage sometime. I just watched it last month and I swear they copied the Great Escape directly off of this movie.

@Pachy Nope. Movies do nothing for me emotionally. I’m very indifferent towards them.

Forgive me but ITT:

A bunch of easily emotionally manipulated suckers.

I mean I’ve seen a couple of films that were supposed to make me want to suck Oliver Stone’s cock.

For some strange reason it didn’t happen.
