It doesn't take long to fall in love with Buffalo.
Just ask Ben Mankiewicz.
The Turner Classic Movies host, who was in town over the weekend to emcee a weekend of events around the "The Natural" with director Barry Levinson, loved the city before he set foot in it thanks to his wife's love of our architecture and his affection for our football team.
But now that he's been here, he's not keeping his feelings to himself.
Actor Ryan Reynolds, who has been known to have fun on Twitter, did so with this tweet Monday.
My kids tried to surprise me for my birthday this morning. I totally heard them coming and snuck out to start a new life somewhere else.

Mankiewicz had a suggestion for where that life could be lived. (Hint: It's on the Niagara River.)
Buffalo. Affordable. Surprisingly handsome people - you’d fit in. Close to Canada. Hard to get to so your kids would have to be committed. https://t.co/ieee8TN8Tl

Just call him a "classic film buff-alo."
