    I liked the movie, " The Invention of Lying. " It's pretty good if you want to give in for a movie with your wife or girlfriend.
    Saw Invention of Lying and liked that one too. Seemed very Monty Python like in a way. My wife didn't really like the humor.

    Luckily I've won her over with Jonah Hill, Zack G type movies. The one with Zack and Robert Downey Jr is another one we just caught recently on HBO that pleasantly surprised us. I hate RD Jr most of the time, but these 2 were really funny together.

    My wife made me see another Robert Pattinson movie Remember Me about a year ago and it was pretty good too given my low expectations. Maybe that guy's a decent actor when he's not in Twighlight??? Or maybe Twilight set my expectation for him through the floor. Who knows?

    Whatever it is, I always feel a little disappointed when I'm super excited about a movie.

    LMAO ! we were just talking about our wives today at work with a guy that is thinking about getting married, I think he's having second doubts !
    My advice to him was, " find a women you hate and buy her a house "

    I'm joking because I am happily married. My wife told me so.

    Yes I did, I found them on Amazon and I have meant to thank you again. I can't believe you nailed both questions I had for finding those two movies. Are you this huge movie buff or just so into cars that you knew the answers ?

    Another great movie was Bullet with Steve McQueen. I only just watched it for the first time about a month and a half ago. Never knew what it was about but my older brother talked about it before and he would complain that he couldn't find the movie in the stores.
    When he got sick with cancer and was dying I found the movie and bought it for him. It was the last movie he watched. I made sure I got it and watched it in honor of him. No wonder he liked it the car scene was great and my brother was a huge mopar guy.

    fordfixer, I have another car movie that I'm looking for and I haven't seen the movie since I was a kid. If I remember correctly, a guy had stolen a Mach with very fancy or custom leather interior. The interior of the car to me was kind of a western look to it. I know thats not much to go on.

    I think the movie you are looking for is "Gone in 60 Seconds" from 1974. The car was a 1973 mustang mach 1. I'm not sure about the western looking interior, Ford offered a interior called the "Pony" from 1965 to 1969 it had kinda of a western look to it.
    And the answer to your questions " Are you this huge movie buff or just so into cars that you knew the answers ?" is yes I also like John Wayne movies alot



    Is this the car?

    Don't get the Nic Cage version that came out a few years ago. The only Nic Cage movie where he actually, you know, acted, was when he was drinking himself to death in Vegas. Other than that, he's basically just a carcicature of himself in his movies.

    Don't forget Vanishing Point (1971)

    Kowalski works for a car delivery service. He takes delivery of a 1970 Dodge Challenger to take from Colorado to San Francisco, California. Shortly after pickup, he takes a bet to get the car there in less than 15 hours. After a few run-ins with motorcycle cops and highway patrol they start a chase to bring him into custody. Along the way, Kowalski is guided by Supersoul - a blind DJ with a police radio scanner. Throw in lots of chase scenes, gay hitchhikers, a naked woman riding a motorbike, lots of Mopar and you've got a great cult hit from the early 70's.

    Just saw Drive in the theater last night. Great movie that both my wife and I enjoyed. Sort of a film noir cross between To Live and Die in LA and Pulp Fiction.
    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."

    Re: Favorite Movies

    I can't find the original Gone in 60 Seconds. Due to it's Christmas season I'll, be watching nothing but Christmas stuff with the wife and two kiddies anyway.

    Christmas season falls within my scheme to buy stuff my wife generally doesn't want me to have. Two years ago I wanted to buy a pogo stick and she was afraid I would eventually get hurt so, we didn't buy it. When I took my 8 year old out shopping for her mom/my wife I stopped at Toys R Us and bought the stick. Told my daughter that, mom didn't want me to have it so I'll need to hide it, wrap it and mark on the card from Santa. To this day my daughter thinks we pulled one over on mom.
    Having said all that, Santa will be bringing a lot of guy DVD that, I happened to order from Amazon.

    If you guys are waiting for kids toys or stuff to go down in price here's my solution. A couple of times we just didn't have the money for some stuff for the kids but knew it would go on sale after Chrismas day. I would go buy the stuff on sale, wrap it up and stick it in the fireplace or on the roof resting on a gutter.
    This way we can tell the kids, " look, Santa forgot to bring this in or it dropped out of his sled. " They get real excited when we did that a couple of times.
