MY FAVORITE MOVIES FROM EACH YEAR I'VE BEEN ALIVE

  1. 1977
    Funny story in early 2000s a friend was dating a girl and they were talking about which movies they'd seen in theater. She said this one. He said- Wait. How old are you? *BC we weren't old enough to see in theater* She told him and he said Oh. She asked is that a problem for you? He said Well I really like being active and being outdoors. Then to us he said I don't want her to break a hip. 😂😂they did not get married. Or last many dates after this😂he's a kooky guy
