stepmom is on tv right now. it's one of the few movies that manages to make me cry. i think it has more to do with how personal it is to me and where it hits me...the heart. and i'm almost positive it has to do with the fact that the first time i saw it was after i first found out my dad has cancer. the part toward the very end where they are pretty much saying "goodbye" and ben, the little boy asks his mom if she'll teach his dad to double-knot his shoes the same way she does for school is the real kicker. susan sarandon, jena malone, and julia roberts all do an outstanding job. it's just an incredibly touching movie. reminds me to cherish the moments you have with those you love because you never really know how much time you have.
