Fun Question about Joe Reilly – What is your favorite movie and why?
I have been blessed to have been successful in business, I work hard but I do play hard also. My favorite movie has always been Peter Pan because I never wanted to grow up and because I love pirates. My wife Robin surprised me on my 50th birthday with a really great Pirate Party, which was really fantastic. I also really like The Wizard of Oz, Pirates of the Caribbean, and all mafia movies including the Godfather series, Goodfellas and Casino. And of course I love the HBO series The Sopranos—remember I was born and raised in New York City in the 60’s and 70’s, which was a unique experience in itself.
