    Great picks! I absolutely LOVE the Labyrinth until now, haha.
    But you can’t have a snow day without some Roman Holiday or Casablanca 🙂

    Oh man…The Shining. I’ll never watch that movie ever again. It was good…but never again. I’d probably watch Robin Hood Men in Tights or Lord of the Rings haha

    I ADORE Waiting for Guffman. And no one ever mentions it! I think it’s the best of the Christopher Guest mockumentaries, hands down. Even A Mighty Wind wouldn’t give it a run for its money.

    Stoooool roooooom~

    I’m so glad you guys like my picks! I was hoping they weren’t too obscure. 🙂 I love all of your suggestions!

    Miranda: I am a HUGE Christopher Guest Fan, especially Waiting for Guffman! A good friend of mine from college and I often post the lyrics to “A Penny for Your Thoughts” on each other’s FB walls.

    Great list guys!! Especially princess bride, the shining, and labyrinth….I own all 3 of these and watch them all the time! I’d also like to add groundhog day! If that isnt a snowy/rainy day movie then I dont know what is!!
