Breakfast At Tiffany's (1961)

Wow. I liked this movie. Holly is a fascinating character and the movie did a great job of building on that. Overall, a very good film. I'd watch it again, definitely. Oh, and "Moon River" also goes on my list of reasons to like the movie. 4 stars.

Call Northside 777 (1948)

Jimmy Stewart always rules. But apart from that, this movie was pretty unmemorable. To tell the truth, I can't even remember what it was about. 1.5 stars.

Another Thin Man (1939)

As murder mysteries go, it was pretty mediocre, but Nick and Nora are so great together and play off of each other so well, it was still incredibly easy to watch. Please note that, yes, this is exactly the same review as I wrote for The Thin Man. With these, you've seen one, you've seen them all - but they're fun anyway. 3.5 stars.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920)

Fascinating story. I've always loved it. This version is pretty high-quality, although I don't care much for silent films - I can never resist making up new lines for them. Oh, and I do have two questions. One: Was that Italian girl supposed to be dancing? And two: What was with the Hyde-spider?! 3 stars.

Cheaper By the Dozen (2003)

Gosh, I hope our family doesn't turn into them. Talk about out of control. He had to hire help for three days? When he had two teenagers to help him out? With that in mind, however, there were a few genuinely funny bits, making it good for the one viewing. There's no reason to watch it again. 1.5 stars.
