The Bone Collector. Well you did break your ankle so it’s kinda on topic anyway.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Castle (Australian classic comedy)
Chocolat
The Bank Job
Ghost Town
The Notebook (good for a tear jerker)
The King’s Speech (if you can get it on DVD yet)
Don’t watch “The Kids are OK”- how it ever got nominated for an academy award is beyond me. It is TERRIBLE
Flying High 1 and 2

Hope you recover soon

Thanks for all of your suggestions! I’ve seen a few of them, but I’ll watch the rest of them!

And for those of you who are wondering what happened, I was playing paint ball with my friends. I did a risky move to get out of the line of fire and I broke it so bad that my bone was about to pop out of the skin. No fun at all!

@KatetheGreat You need to start giving GAs to your answerers, girly!

KateTheGreat's avatar

@ladymia69 I try to! I am so many places at once that it’s hard to catch up. But I did do it!

Ladymia69's avatar

@KatetheGreat Thanks, chica. Sorry i had to whip you a little. But I know you sort of liked it.:p

KateTheGreat's avatar

@KatetheGreat
I bumped your lurve over 5k…you are welcome.

dxs's avatar

@KatetheGreat
it’s too bad that you’re referred to as “one other” on the fluther home page for people that reached 5k..,

KateTheGreat's avatar

@dxs It’s just a number, I don’t really care.

dxs's avatar

@KatetheGreat but it gives you the pride of saying “hey, I have just earned 5000 points for being such a good person, helping many people with their queries and problems, and have inquired wonderous concepts that have given the community a chance to shine in their own special way.” I’m almost hitting four digits. :)
Oh and ps, this is an exagerration, just incase I wasn’t clear as previous times prove…

KateTheGreat's avatar

@dxs Haha, that was really sweet. I already maxed out on giving you lurve, so I can’t help you get any closer to 1000 :P
