American History X is an awesome choice Chicano and it would have to be my favorite movie of all time because of the potent social messages it brings to the screen. I also love Norton in that movie.

MERRY CHRISTMAS at the end.

Planes Trains and Automobiles - John Candy and Steve Martin in a movie that is pure gold. watch it every

"You play with your balls a lot."
"i do NOT play with my balls a lot"
"Larry Bird doesnt do as much ballhandling in one night as you do in an hour"

Breakfast at Tiffany's - i have my reasons.

I actually haven't, at least not YET, but I hear nothing but good things about it.
