Phillip | 10366 comments i've never heard of this movie. is it a new release?


message 3: by Mawgojzeta (new)

Mawgojzeta Not a new release (2006). Cute movie, though. I enjoyed it.

It is based on a kid's book, cannot remember if it had the same name. Anyway, a girl had been cursed with a pig's nose. The curse will only be broken if she finds "true love".

Phillip | 10366 comments thanks, i thought it might have something to do with the odyssey or with joyce's ulysses.

Tom | 5232 comments LOL!!!


St[♥]r Pr!nc:$$ N[♥]wsheen pictures, pictures, pictures ||| ♥ Zin Uru ♥ |||| | 482 comments lol! nothing like that, but still a good movie, kind of fairy tale-ish.

I wouldn't mind a remake of ulysses, i think the odyssey was done already. :)

Geoffrey | 209 comments Almost anything with Christina Ricci is a proven winner. The gal doesn´t pick bad movies.

Tom | 5232 comments SPEED RACER and CASPER THE FRIENDLY GHOST notwithstanding.

Tom | 5232 comments Christina Ricci's performance in ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES is just marvelous. That glorious little scene where she tries to smile is one of my favorites. And her look of bold determination just before being forced to watch THE SOUND OF MUSIC -- glorious.

Phillip | 10366 comments nice call!

i watched the ice storm recently (i own it and watch it semi-regularly), and she really shines in that film, as do all the other players.


message 12: by Geoffrey (new)

Geoffrey | 209 comments My favorite scenes in ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES are those when she is rolling her eyes at someone else´s idiocy. I recall her doing it several times in the flic. Yes, Phillip, she holds her own with the rest of the cast.

Gigi | 44 comments Oh wow! I loved this movie. Great cast! I will watch virtually anything with Catherine O'Hara, Nick Frost (even though the part was very small) and Richard E. Grant. I'm considering buying the DVD to add to my collection. This, for me, was one of those rare movies that I can watch over and over again. Reese Witherspoon not only had a supporting role (if even that much) in it, but she produced it. Very cool movie.

mine is "Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid...."

Addams Family is a true classic of the spooky/weird genre without any real ghosts in it. Angelica Huston was amazing, but second to Christina Ricci since we are all in love with her films.

I don't know what she was doing in Sleepy Hollow, and I saw her in Cursed too.

Reese Witherspoon does nice movies too, I have seen several of ehr movies but can't decide if I really like her or the movies she was in.


message 15: by Rachel (new)

Rachel looooooove this movie! so great. and i'm actually not a huge ricci fan. it's just such a wonderful story, and they rode the perfect balance between making it magical and making it real. good stuff.

.......james mcavoy doesn't hurt either...... ;)

I wish more people had seen it,it's so good!

Phillip, have you seen it yet?


message 19: by Phillip (new)

Phillip | 10366 comments no, i can't find it.


message 20: by Grace (new)

Grace (Gracethe-weird-one) | 35 comments Have you tried netflix?


message 21: by Phillip (new)

Phillip | 10366 comments hmmm, no i didn't. i'll check that. unfortunately, this amazing video store in my neighborhood just went out of business. for years it has been the place i go to for hard to find films. i imagine netflix and other sources have driven them out of business.

grrrrrrr. not happy about it.


message 22: by Grace (new)

Grace (Gracethe-weird-one) | 35 comments Awe,bummmer.
It's sad when small businesses like that close down.
Hell,even blockbuster is closing down because of on-demand and netflix movies.


message 23: by Phillip (new)

Phillip | 10366 comments i'm actually quite happy that blockbuster is going out of business ... how dare they edit films to their liking.


message 24: by Grace (new)

Grace (Gracethe-weird-one) | 35 comments I have to agree with you on that,
blockbuster had it coming.


St[♥]r Pr!nc:$$ N[♥]wsheen pictures, pictures, pictures ||| ♥ Zin Uru ♥ |||| | 482 comments Phil..maybe get a netflix account..? Sorry to hear your favourite video store closed down.

Maybe they will make a movie on it soon , small store closes as giant retail store opens opposite and the two fall in love, *pinches self* need some fresh air!!
