If it makes you feel any better, a friend of mine always cries at the end of Ghost. :-o

Digress totally here (sorry), but Demi Moore looked so unbelievably good in Ghost. I don't know if it was the short hair, or that it was before she got Courtney-Cox-thin (yuck) -- but she was sooooo hot in Ghost (Indecent Proposal was about the same period, she looked amazing in that film too). Demi does NOTHING for me now.

Demi still looks hot for her age, IMHO, but I like her with longer hair. Not really down to her feet but definitely longer than that boy's cut. I have always liked her. She was cute as a button is About Last Night with that raspy voice. :-)

I actually like both of the movies a lot, but how can you vote against Field of Dreams in the 1st rd?

Man, I hate Field of Dreams. It always just seemed like cliches wrapped up in a sentimental story. It seems so... obvious. I'd vote for any movie above Field of Dreams.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

The home ballpark for the "Racine Belles" in A League of their Own is actually the home field for my high school baseball team. They still have a lot of the signs they used in the movie up around the park.

I agree with AA. I think I will abstain from voting since I am not very passionate about either movie.

FYI: The park is Bosse Field in Evansville, Indiana.
