It's A Wonderful Life
Somehow, I've made it to the ripe old age of 31 without seeing It's A Wonderful Life. Well, actually, it's not all that shocking if you think about it - I'm not really a Christmas person, and I tend to avoid "old" movies (much to my husband's chagrin/hatred).
But I went, and it was good. A charming story of an extraordinarily kind man who spent his life doing good for others, often at the expense of his own wants and needs - until he reaches the end of his rope one snowy Christmas Eve, and those friends and neighbors he'd been helping all along get to support HIM for once. Very enjoyable, and there were lots of happy tears from me at the end. 8 out of 10.
