    I don't know if December being spelled wrong in that jpg is supposed to be part of the joke or not but it's bothering me.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Dumb and Dumber having one more vote than Titanic for second is silly. It's a funny movie but Titanic is so epic.

    One of them is corny, hokey, and over the top - and the other is Dumb And Dumber.

    (Actually, I do like Titanic).

    Just the technical achievements alone in Titanic should be able to carry it far in this tournament.

    I think Titanic is just a movie that people love to hate. I don't see how it's even in the same league as Dumb and Dumber, but then again I'm not a fan of those types of comedies.

    I like them both but for obviously different reasons. I also voted for both.

    I've always voted in these tournaments for what I personally enjoy. I don't care how many awards the movie has won or how critically acclaimed it is.
