I was surprised that you hadn't seen "Working Girl," (1988). I loved it; you're more than welcome to borrow it. I was sure you'd seen "As Good As It Gets" (1997). Also in 1997 was "Good Will Hunting," which you recommended to me. Lastly, you didn't bold "Saving Sergeant Ryan," which you recommended that I not see. Amazing lists--they brought back memories.
