CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

Finding Neverland is a 2004 semi-biographical film about playwright J. M. Barrie and his relationship with a family who inspired him to create Peter Pan, directed by Marc Forster. The mention of Marc Forster in the World War Z thread reminded me of the other good movies (IMO) he has directed. Monster's Ball, The Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace and of course Finding Neverland.

The film was nominated for 7 Academy Awards including Best Actor for Johnny Depp. The film was budgeted at $25 million and took in $118 million worldwide.

Some of the trivia for this film include Dustin Hoffman, playing the producer, was also in Hook (1991). Freddie Highmore playing one of the sons would end up in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) thanks to a recommendation from Depp. And unlike The Lone Ranger's Tonto, Johnny Depp does a fine job here. If somehow you missed this film the first time around it's a recommended watch.

I'll go with The Sunshine Boys. One of those movies that I didn't get on first viewing, but later makes me hurt I laugh so much. Life experience is a wonderful thing ...

Eve: I thought I was through getting involved with men who were trouble. Falling in love on a look. I can't look at you.

Mickey: You have perfection about you. Your eyes have music. Your heart's the best part of your body. And when you move, every man, woman and child is forced to watch.

Bad News Bears? He looks older than he was in that one, though...

On second thought, I'm thinking Dennis the Menace.

One guess per 24 hours is our rule, but...No and No.

He was a hard working guy!

I wasn't going to review this one. It's a low energy, meandering spy spoof.

A little of both, I didn't want you getting any meaner. I was envisioning Bill Bixby as Bruce Banner "You wouldn't like me when I am angry".

IF that is Clifton Webb I'd go with any one of the Mr. Belvederes.

OR maybe Cheaper by the Dozen.
