I just love Debbie Reynolds. I personally think she is under-appreciated – especially by people who weren’t alive when she was big. Her personality is great so pretty much everything I see her in, I like.
#10 – The Tender Trap
Mommy Bear’s Opinion – I love Frank Sinatra and Debbie Reynolds in this movie. They do an excellent job. They have great chemisty on the screen and it is a cute movie.

#9 – Halloweentown
Mommy Bear’s Opinion – This is a Disney Channel movie. I think that it is cheesy but for children they would love it. It has some scary parts since it is a Halloween movie but the older children would like this one.

#6 – Bundle of Joy

It is nice to watch the love for this bundle of joy grow from when she firsts finds him. The movie is quite adventurous and a wild ride while Reynolds tries to figure out where the child came from.

After getting fired from her job, she finds an adorable baby on the steps of the foundling home and the folks inside mistake her for the mother. Fisher, well-meaning, but obtuse, tries to help her out with the baby, and the buds of romance begin to appear. Meanwhile old Merlin, the owner of the store, thinks he just might be a grandfather.
