I am a man, I love sappy movies, so be it !
16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As far back as I can remember, I have always been a sucker for good story true or not, where I got caught up in the story and expressed emotion. Every single time! All I have got to say is "Sappy Men Unite"! This movie and one entitled "Little White Lies", is another Ann Jillian movie where it may not be sappy from start to finish, but it ends sappy. Other than a sappy love story, my other favorite kind of movie is where justice prevails and the good guy's kick a little butt. I will have to wait until another time when this plays to record it, whenever that will be? As far as my own personal story that helps me connect with sappy movies, like everyone else, we all have a person in our lives that we had the right feelings for, but it was the wrong time in our lives. I was 20 when I met this individual and she struck a very strong chord in my heart at the time, we socialized together, but I never created the right opportunity to let her know how I felt. Like most of us, we regret not knowing what might have been, basically lost opportunities! Under the circumstances, life for both us went in the direction that it was meant to go. Although for that brief time when I was 20-22 years of age, it was both awkward, new and exciting. When you feel strong feelings for someone for the first time, it is awkward, exhilarating and kind of scary. You always live your life believing that you have to have all or some of your ducks in a row, to pursue those feelings even if it may not come at an ideal time in your life, but I know now that is not correct. Living our life in fear or what will happen or what might happen, is no way to live your life. Even though I would give anything to live that time over again and perhaps correct a few mistakes made out of being insecure and scared, as well as to feel that way again, I do not regret the direction my life took.
