BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
More alley romance. In the first of the "Spider-Man" series (the second was the best) nothing beats this scene of blossoming arachnid love. As Spidey is hanging upside down in an alley during a steady drizzle Mary Jane slowly peels his mask just far enough for a deep, wet kiss. We hold our breath, to see what's next, if she'll remove the mask. Suddenly there's a hiss and off he goes, leaving her looking up in the rain with the memory of a kiss she will hold forever.
THE OUIET MAN
PRIDE & PREJUDICE (2005)
A poll I read ( yes, real people take such polls and studios pay them well) said the approval rating for "The Notebook" is a full three points higher for females than for males. Not a surprise, except that's a huge, gigantic difference, higher than almost any chick-flick, and, even more surprising, it holds across women of all age groups. Women buy the DVD and watch it again and again and again. There's meaning in this, somewhere, somehow about communication between the sexes. So guys, bite the bullet: watch it and pay attention.
