Alvin and Bootsy



Oh, how I love the movie Savannah Smiles. I remember watching it on satellite as a kid and just crying and crying. Back then, it defined tragedy to me as much as Romeo and Juliet does now. If you've never seen it, you should rent it.

*Beware it is from the early eighties and might have been low budget even then. It is a little hard to find, but I checked it out from my local library last night, so you might find it at yours.

On another note, I loooove me some Cadbury mini-eggs, I know everyone says that, but I REALLY, REALLY DO. At Christmas they repackage them as just Christmas chocolate balls and they are different colored, but basically the same thing.





You combine mini-eggs and Savannah Smiles and you've got what I did last night. Really, does it get any better? I submit, it does not. Oh yeah, I was also sitting under my electric blanket while enjoying those two pleasures. So you're with me right?

Thank you for sharing those Cadbury delights with us! I'm always so sad when Easter goes away, because no more mini-eggs. I will definitely try these.

And how cute is that Savannah? So cute.

I LOVE Savannah Smiles! I cried and cried during that movie as well.

And well, Cadbury chocolate? Can you go wrong with that? Nope.

That was my favorite movie when I was little, too!

I don't know why, but Savannah Smiles has always given me feelings of dread. Maybe I should give it another try. Cadbury has never done that and I think I'll go buy some today.

Clint loves that movie. I have never watched it with him ,but his sister and him love it. They watched all the time when they were little. Yes...my man has some sensitivity to him. And its true, I don't know anyone who loves mini eggs more than you.

I hate all those things. Especially that movie, but ESPECIALLY electric blankets, but ESPECIALLLY chocolate eggs.

Now...why would I watch this movie that y'all say makes you "cry and cry and cry?"
Isn't that what REAL LIFE is for anyway?
And don't I drink so much wine because of that?

But the chocolate: Count me in.

That's literally my favorite candy. LOVE it!

I love Savannah Smiles. Though it is low-budget, it is such a classic, it melts my heart, with such soft-hearted bad guys.

And yes, at least part of it was filmed in Utah, especially the part at the end when they're up at the ski lift or whatever--they went to Bridal Veil (Vale? Vail?) Falls and bought Savannah ice cream.

Oh how I loved that movie growing up!

jurl said...

I love that movie! I even have it on DVD. I wanted to name my daughter Savanah Dawn, but Husband said it sounded like a stripper and refused me. Ass.

Heck is for people that don't believe in gosh
