One of my husband's friends loaned him a bootlegged copy of "Taken" starring Liam Neeson. The plot centers around his daughter, who upon arriving in Paris, is promptly kidnapped and sold into white slavery by Albanian thugs. It is then Neeson's mission to find his daughter within 96 hours.

It was a great movie. However, movies that center around parents losing their kids, either temporarily or permanently are hard for me to watch. I can't help but envision our daughter in the place of the kidnapped girl. I managed to bite off all my nails even though I had a pretty good idea of how it would end.

While these themes make for good, suspenseful, emotional movies they are becoming harder and harder for me to watch. How about you? What movies are difficult or uncomfortable for you to watch?

I'm with you on that. I like the You've Got Mail, Serendipity, type movies. Chick Flick I guess? Or romantic comedies? The occasional serious, deep movie, but not too often. Some old movies are faves too.

I agree. I like to watch movies that are more light-hearted. Although, I like a good drama every now and then.
