    Did anybody else watch this tonight?

    I must be having a touch of PMS because, it was a tear jerker. :'(



    The only things that didn't make me cry was Kevin Bacon in a high and tight-oooo la la. He looked good!

    They have been advertising it on HBO for months.....


    Its about the escort that brings home the remains of a soldier from war...this one being the Iraqi war.

    I won't spoil it for you if you have not seen the previews. But try and watch it if you can.

    My hubby and I caught the last half of it and cried like babies.
    Really well done movie - and I don't normally like Kevin Bacon.

    Glad to hear I wasnt the only one with the water works....or maybe a touch of PMS-LOL!

    Usually I will watch movies again, and again.....but this one, I dont know if I can. I dont want to cry anymore!

    Hubby called from the track to tell me one of our horses won.....he said whats wrong, I thought you would be happy.

    All I said was tear-jerker-movie. He said ok, bye.

    He knows what time of month it is ;)

    No pms here, but Saturday night was a crying fest for me. I was glad I was by myself. Told hubby he has to watch it, though.

    Starting today, it's available on HBO On Demand.

    Great movie -- and a definite emotional roller coaster. Seems I wasn't the only fan on here.

    Kevin Bacon isn't my fav actor, but does a great job with this.

    And it's a true story, which the movie doesn't go over the top with -- in fact, it's kept as original as possible to the actual story with little to no dramatization, which makes it even better.
