Lars and the Real Girl!

Ok. Yet another movie...but it's awesome! If you like quirky, lovely, sweet movies then you should see this! Yes, one of the main characters is a life size doll...and no she doesn't not come to life, that is Pinocchio! But it's so cute! I loved the towns people and what they do to include Bianca! Plus, Ryan Gosling is pretty dang hot!

Favorite Quotes:

"That is just not true! God! Every person in this town bends over backward to make Bianca feel at home. Why do you think she has so many places to go and so much to do? Huh? Huh? Because of you! Because - all these people - love you! We push her wheelchair. We drive her to work. We drive her home. We wash her. We dress her. We get her up, and put her to bed. We carry her. And she is not petite, Lars. Bianca is a big, big girl! None of this is easy - for any of us - but we do it... Oh! We do it for you! So don't you dare tell me how we don't care."--Karin

"Like, you know, like, you don't jerk people around, you know, and you don't cheat on your woman, and you take care of your family, you know, and you admit when you're wrong, or you try to, anyways. That's all I can think of, you know - it sound like it's easy and for some reason it's not."--Gus

"Lars asked us not to wear black today. He did so to remind us that this is no ordinary funeral. We are here to celebrate Bianca's extraordinary life. From her wheelchair, Bianca reached out and touched us all, in ways we could never have imagined. She was a teacher. She was a lesson in courage. And Bianca loved us all. Especially Lars. Especially him."--Reverend Bock
