    The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney movie. Great songs and story. Plus, Ariel is really hot.

    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?

    Somehow I failed to notice The King Of Comedy when I voted; is it possible to add that vote in now?
