That was so fun! Thanks for playing. It's a hard list to compile, but I've enjoyed reading about other people!

I have never seen Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. I thought Keaneu Reeves was famous for his remake of "Babes in Toyland". He sang in that you know.

Darryl and Cindy said...

Great list BTW.

Never seen Babes in Toyland...another classic I missed.
You wouldn't recognize him in Bill and Ted's (plays a long haired teenager) but I seen him in Speed and wondered who he was. I thought he was excellent in that. Also...Point Break, Sweet November, Matrix, The Lake House, A Walk in the Clouds, The Replacements and more. I'll have to get the Babes movie if he sings in it. He sings a little in A Walk in the Clouds. BTW...that is one good movie. If you haven't seen it. Get it...
And can you believe Patrick Swatze has cancer. I hope he beats it!!

Guffey Family said...

Yeah, I like Patrick Swayze, hope he comes through well also. I liked your list! It's fun to read about other people and get to know them better!

I am amazed by all the things I did not know about people that I was around so much while growing up.
