Now, tally up those answers…

If you picked mostly A’s… then check out AMELIE

Amelie is a whimsical modern day fairy tale about a girl living in Paris who decides to change the lives of those around her for the better while she searches for her own true love. This is the perfect film for anyone looking to get immersed in old world Parisian scenery and charm… or those looking to brush up on their French. (Heads up: it’s subtitled!) Grab a glass of champagne or Boudreaux and enjoy Paris through the eyes of our lovable heroine.

If you picked mostly B’s… then check out THE BEACH

At the beginning of The Beach, Leonardo DiCaprio’s character is looking to get off the beaten path in Thailand. Through a series of events he hears about a secret beach, which ends up being most definitely off the normal tourist trail. While this particular film has a bit of a dark side, the smooth stretch of white sand that serves as the centerpiece for this movie should satisfy all of your beach-based wanderlust.

If you picked mostly C’s… then check out THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY

 

There’s a reason why director Peter Jackson chose New Zealand to represent the varied landscapes of the Lord of the Rings’ Middle Earth… it’s simply one of the most photogenic and diverse countries on the planet. If you yearn for epic adventure alongside everything from dramatic mountains, to lush forests and waterways, then get your New Zealand fix with this fantasy classic.

If you picked mostly D’s… then check out NATIONAL LAMPOON’S VACATION

 

Unabashed Americana is highlighted in National Lampoon’s Vacation, the ultimate celebration of the family road trip. From roadside antics to unexpected detours, watching the trials and tribulations of the Griswold family as they head from Chicago to the fictional Wally World, California is be both fun and hilarious.

If you picked mostly E’s… then check out UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN

If you’re longing to be immersed in the romantic Italian countryside, then Under the Tuscan Sun should perfectly fit the bill! Sure, this chick flick’s story deviates quite a bit from Francis Mayes’ original memoir, but the warmth and drop dead beautiful vistas of the Tuscan countryside will more than make up for it. Warning: It just may inspire you to pick up and move to Tuscany!

    • Hi Perry! Since you’re not leaning one particular direction with your answers, it looks like you might enjoy all of the movies. Lucky you!

  2. This was fun. I am definitely Under the Tuscan Sun which is very funny. Read the book and absolutely loved it. In fact, it made me want to move somewhere to experience a new culture. Wouldn’t see the movie for at least 2 years because it strayed so far from the book that had moved me. Movie was ok but the book. . . now we’re talking.

    • I completely agree. I was kind of shocked the first time I watched the movie version because it’s so different. But the pretty scenery makes up for it, I think.

  3. Cute! I always loved quizes in magazines to find out what type of guy I should date or subject I should study. Brought me back to those days- I’m Under the Tuscan Sun- which seems pretty appropriate!! 🙂

  4. OMG, I’m all over the place! I’m between The Beach, LOTR, and National Lampoon’s… ha! That’s an interesting mix… I’m a hobbit that makes a fool of himself while tanning at the beach! 😛
