Happy Thursday everyone! We’re getting closer and closer to Valentine’s Day and our countdown continues with number 5 on my list of favorite romantic movie moments. Since yesterday’s movie moment was a tear-jerker I thought we’d go on the lighter side today, although there are parts of the movie I’ve chosen for today that make me cry as well. What can I say, I’m an emotional person!
Before I get started I just want to remind everyone of what we’re playing for and how to win. If you’re just joining us, the details of the giveaway are on the Day 1 post, and each day and post offers another entry for the prizes. The links are below for your convenience, so you can start from the beginning and work your way through! Don’t miss as single entry opportunity!
I can honestly say that when it comes to Adam Sandler movies, I often find myself on the fence. He’s hilarious, but sometimes I feel it’s a bit much. It can be obnoxious. I have a list of his movies I love and on the other side a list that I hate. When the romantic comedy, 50 First Dates hit theaters, I skipped it. Watching all the schtick in the movie trailers just didn’t appeal. It wasn’t until this movie came out on video and appeared on network TV that I decided to give it a try. I was NOT expecting to cry, or even to fall in love with Sandler’s character a tiny bit (okay, a lot). I mean, we’re talking about a guy that loves a girl so much, he doesn’t care that she wakes up every morning with her memory wiped clean like someone hit a reset button in her head. Everything that happened after a nasty car accident cannot be retained and she is stuck in the past, living the same day over and over again until she meets Henry. Henry’s idea of telling Lucy the truth instead of letting her live the same day over and over again is the kind of move not a lot of men would make. We’re talking about investing a lot of your life in breaking a woman’s heart every morning and making her fall in love with you again by the end of the day.
Talk about a grand gesture.
It is for that reason that the final scene of 50 First Dates brings tears to my eyes every time I see it. I don’t know if any men like this exist out there, but I’d like to think there are a few who would do something so wonderful for someone they loved!
For today’s entry, I want to know about the most selfless act of love you’ve ever witness, whether it was done for you, by you, or to someone else you know. And by selfless, I don’t mean grand, I mean the most UNselfish thing you’ve ever seen! It doesn’t have to be romantic love either, anything goes!
