I don’t have any movie suggestions, really, but when I have a whole weekend to kill, I love to work through a tv series.

Recent faves are Parks and Recreation, Breaking Bad, Lie to Me, and Homeland.

I agree with TV series being fun to watch.

I love Arrested Development (Seasons 1-3). Such great humor!

You must watch Drowning Mona. It if friggin’ hilarious.

It starts Danny Devito, Bette Midler, Casey Affleck, and Neve Campbell. It is so funny, and the acting is so great, that it seems like it all really happened lol.

Basically, a woman in town dies (Bette Midler), and it is reveleled her brakes were tampered with. The chief of police (Danny Devito), tries to get to the bottom of it, but the woman was such a b*tch, it’s hard to pinpoint who did it, because everyone had a motive!

Everyone I’ve convinced to watch it, has laughed and laughed and just loved it.

@PMSJL:  +1 Pride & Prejudice – the Colin Firth version.  A very lovely and girly way to spend 5 hours.  That’s my fav for a girls day/night in by myself!

@CityBearBride:  

Any Jane Austen based flick. I just watched Northanger Abbey the other night.

Fanny and Alexander (I don’t know if it’s commonly available in the US, or dubbed/subtitled even) is a Bergman miniseries, I think about 8 hours. I really loved it.

@bunnyharriet:  

Yay for dark comedies.

Fargo is also superb, if the OP hasn’t seen it yet. The Usual Suspects and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels were good also.

Anything Cohen Bros. really.

Or pull out the Tarantinos, esp. Pulp Fiction, Resevoir Dogs, and True Romance.
