    if you like old tear jerker chick flick types- try " The other side of the mountain" (1975?)
    sappy, but pretty cool, and shows just how far things have come, and how some things never change

    • The Ex
    • The Waterdance
    • Passion Fish
    • Rory O'Shea Was Here
    • The Sea Inside
    • Million Dollar Baby
    • X-Men
    • X-2: X-Men United
    • X-Men: The Last Stand
    • Monkey Shines

    About Monkey Shines:(From When Allan becomes a quadriplegic he loses all hope for living until he meets Ella - a monkey trained to fetch and carry for him around the house, obeying him in all things. But Ella is part of another experiment, and when she starts responding to Allan's underlying rage and frustration she has the ability to carry our her master's darkest wishes.

    Love Affair 1994

    Love Affair, 1994, Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, Katharine Hepburn.

    Mike Gambril (Beatty) is a womanizing ex-jock turned sportscaster who's just become engaged to media magnate Lynn Weaver (Kate Capshaw). During a plane trip to Sydney, Mike meets Terry McKay (Bening), a likeable musician/singer who's on the way to Sydney to decorate her fiancé's boat.

    As fate would have it, the plane goes down on an island in the Pacific and Mike and Terry end up spending time together on their way back to the states. After a visit to Mike's crazy Aunt Ginny (Katharine Hepburn), Terry finally succumbs to Mike's charms and they have a torrid two day love affair.

    After returning to New York, they vow that they'll spend three months with no contact with each other to put their lives together and, if they want the affair to continue, they'll meet on the observation deck of the Empire State Building. They vow that if either of them doesn't show, then they'll simply accept the fact that it wasn't meant to be and get on with their lives.

    Three months pass, and during that time Mike has broken things off with Lynn and taken a coaching job in Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, Terry has broken off her relationship with Ken (Pierce Brosnan) and gained employment as a music teacher at a grade school. All is going well until Mike shows up at the Empire State Building and Terry gets hit by a car a block from their rendezvous.

    Dejected, Mike returns to his life, wondering what exactly happened, and Terry, paralyzed from the waist down, vows that Mike will never see her in this condition. Things get even more complicated when Mike begins dating Lynn again while Ken is helping Terry convalesce and the two couples have a chance encounter at a charity function.

    The last scene of the movie, the apartment scene on Christmas Eve, Terry’s students stop by to sing her, “Wish you a Merry Christmas.” Terry is in a ‘chair draped by a hooded gown which covers the back of the ‘chair. After the children leave, Terry’s care attendant opens the door to leave and Mike shows up to give Terry a scarf from Aunt Ginny. Mike and Terry talk about their meeting at the Empire State Building. Mike is flying out an ocean away this evening. While saying, “Good bye!” at the door he turns around and says to Terry, “I painted you wearing that scarf, I don’t know what happen to it …”

    The writers and producer of the movie handle the wheelchair part of the scene where they plant the thought in your mind but don’t say wheelchair or disability. This last scene is very well done and is very captivating.

    Christopher Reeve did a TV remake of Rear Window in 1998. As I rememer it was good, but the reveiw for it here didn't agree. Looks like it is available if you want to see it bad enough to order it.
