Bah Humbug!

Since I went out on a limb and admitted that I am developing a love affair for Brokeback Mountain, I have decided that I will out myself on another movie.

This is a much-loved movie during this time of year. It plays quite a bit during the Christmas and holiday season, and every time it comes on, I cringe. I hope that Ace doesn't see that it is listed in the lineup for entertainment for that evening.

The movie?

It's A Wonderful Life.

I can't stand it.

I have no idea why. I can't really put my finger on it. Maybe it is because it is "expected" of me to like it. Ace likes it. Mini Martha likes it. Then why shouldn't EVERYone like it? It is a classic.

But not to me.

That little girl in the end ... that whole angels get their wings everytime a bell rings. Bleck. Bile rising up in my throat over that one.

And I seriously HAVE given the movie a chance. I did sit down and watch it. Once. And that was all I needed.

I guess we all just have our favorites, but I haven't heard of anyone else who detests this movie as much as I do.

I don't hate it but then I do not go out of my way to watch it. In fact if it was on TV I would probably change the channel.

I have never seen the entire thing and don't particularly care to. Amazing, since it is my parent's favorite.

It absolutely kills my husband that I loathe that movie. I refuse to watch it, Jimmy Stewart makes me get hives.

Oh Kim. I am so glad to hear you say that. I like the Glen Miller Story. That is the ONLY Jimmy Stewart movie I can stomach.

Hate. It. I saw it once when I was depressed. Not a good idea. I just felt even more depressed. For the sake of all those who love it and couldn't understand why I didn't, I watched it again last year. Gah.
