    Some of my favorites: Unstrung Heroes, Just One Night, Cinema Paradiso, Ransom of Red Chief.

    Ransom of Red Chief was on a couple of days ago and the scene where the father is eating meat and the gypsys are at the window chanting, "Fluffy, fluffy" always cracks me up. Some of the one-liners of these movies have become part of our household language. Andie McDowell's line in Unstrung Heroes, "My God, he has become one of them" or Just One Night, where the sign says, "Open 24 hours" and the line, "But not in a row!" are examples. Why can't we have more movies with humor!

    I forgot one of my favorites: Bagdad Cafe. The one liner of CCH Pounder, "Ya'll can kiss my (not patoot), I'm going to town!" Sometimes the little gems of movies get no or little attention.
