I saw that movie about 30 times. I worked in a movie theater when it was playing. About screening #15, I realized the Chinese Music being played on Xylophone and other instruments in the Chinatown sequence was actually "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."

Ha! I have that DVD. We loved that movie.

The movie is long but it never feels slow or plodding. At the end, after wiping away some tears, she declared it may be the best movie she had ever seen.
The book is better.

(And the great majority of those were made before 2010.) Btw, two more that I thought of that I like very much:

"Last Holiday" - Queen Latifah
"Family Man" (2000)

(This brings my total to just 17, I think.)

Anyway, thanks again! (And later this week or next, I will compile a new list of movies for me to try based on all your recommendations! )
LOL, and yet, people are still ignoring your request - - - and the entire raison d'Ítre for the thread - - - by listing pre-2000 movies, some as early as the 1930s!

Maybe I'll start a new thread so they'll have some place to list these older movies.
