In honor of our 20th birthday, we'll be celebrating movies and their impact on individual people. If there is a movie that has changed or inspired you, let us know by emailing

There are movies that affect us in ways that we don't notice. They may give us a catchphrase or a clever quip to use on our significant other when he or she is being obnoxious. They may have even given us the perfect pick-up line that got us with our significant other in the first place. Most of the time, when we use these lines or make a reference, we don't even realize we're doing it. Then there are times when a movie can affect us so profoundly that we are moved to actions because of it, rather than despite of it. For me, that movie was 'Pay It Forward.'
