Sleepless … Always 

The first time I saw, “Sleepless In Seattle” was at the Pleasure Island AMC theatres at Disney World when it first came out in 1993. I was 23 years old and, although I wasn’t dating anyone at the time, I had my share of romantic hopes and dreams.

I saw the movie with a bunch of girlfriends and then watched An Affair To Remember a few weeks later with a girlfriend so we could be all caught up on the Cary Grant / Deborah Kerr thing. Is it Kerr or Carr? 🙂

There is nothing about this movie that I don’t love. Nothing.

Meg Ryan’s clothes – simple, understated, muted tones. Her hair – long, wavy, wispy, and perfect in every scene. Her singing in the car – PERFECT. #horsehorseshorses

Tom Hanks’ curly hair – adorable. The way you can see his whole face and body posture change … soften … as he comforts his son, who just told him he thinks he’s forgetting his deceased mother – makes me tear up every time.

The soundtrack is fantastic and timeless. 

And Nora Ephron was a complete and total genius director. 

This is without question my favorite movie of all time. Every line and every song is just imprinted on my little heart.

So what’s your favorite movie? What movie do you always have to watch when it pops up on your tv? 


  1. I need to watch this one again. I liked it, but I’d like to see it the way you do.

    As for mine….I’m not sure. I have so many.The Color Purple, maybe? Or the Sound of Music.

      Lori I can’t even tell you how much I adore this movie. My favorite scene is the very end when the three meet unexpectedly at the top of the Empire State building. The last few minutes of the movie are perfection.

      And the Sound of Music is definitely at the top of my list as well!

  2. I have four — Gladiator, Braveheart, Dances With Wolves and To Kill a Mockingbird. Not sure what that says about me, except that I like hot hero-type men!

      I love Dances With Wolves and To Kill a Mockingbird. Such classic movies. And you’re going to laugh, but Jake turned me on to the Dances With Wolves soundtrack – it’s phenomenal and excellent as background writing music 🙂
