All of life's riddles are answered in the movies*

For Joe Fox (the role played by Tom Hanks in You've Got Mail), The Godfather was the sum of all wisdom, the answer to any question.

For me, it's The Princess Bride, sharing top honors with Steel Magnolias.

So, if you ask me what to pack for your summer vacation, I probably won't tell you to leave the gun and take the cannoli. But I may very well advise you to remember a holocaust cloak.

Either that, or I'll remind you that the only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.

Just thought you might want to know ahead of time.

* Oh, the title? It's a line from (what else?) a movie — Grand Canyon, an otherwise forgettable film. (And I don't really believe it.)
