Principalpoop: harvey is in the same genre, almost
Principalpoop: harvey takes it to another level
Bambi: Loved the last line of one of the reviews, "I really could not say enough good things about this movie (which I prefer to IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE). It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, and quite frankly, it'll make you glad to be alive. Not many movies can do that. And it's most certainly true that you can't take your money with you... but what you *can* do is take this movie and its message to heart. 10/10, without a doubt. "
Principalpoop: foot tapping music
Bambi: last paragraph actually
Merlyn: Here's the script of YCTIWY: http://tinyurl.com/67oo5w

Principalpoop: not a problem, just chatting
Merlyn: images aren't good for this style chat, it messes up the scrolling, so images get elided
