We've really enjoyed our Netflix subscription averaging 12-15 movies a month. I keep coming up with excuses not to cancel it and cutting out other things in order to keep it. Here is a list of a few of the movies we have really enjoyed over the past few months. Warning: we are not easily shocked and do watch a lot of rated R movies.

Proof with Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins Spectacular movie but of course I was once a math geek!

The Holiday with Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz Funny but lots of sexual situations

What a Girl Wants with Colin Firth This one is not your typical romance as it focuses on the growing bond between a father and daughter. We really enjoyed it and were pleasantly surprised.

The Shop Around the Corner This is the movie that You've Got Mail was based on. Very sweet, B&W, very wholesome.

Music & Lyrics with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore Good music and a cute story.

High Fidelity with John Cusack Good music and a good plot. Lots of sexual situations.

Carolina with Julia Stiles and Shirley MacLaine Really good, funny story focusing on a messed up family of 3 young girls and their grandmother.

Shall We Dance with Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez Nice dance scenes and better than the reviews let on.

Shakespeare in Love with Gwyneth Paltrow Funny and well acted.

Cider House Rules with Tobey MacGuire and Michael Caine Lots of adult themes but exceptionally good.

We are also enjoying some of the older movies and musicals like Singin' in the Rain, Pillow Talk, That Touch of Mink, etc. They are wholesome and fun but usually have a very weak story.
