Do you have a favorite movie that you’ll never tell anyone that you actually like? Were you move to hysterical sobs when Mariah Carey met her mother at the end of “Glitter?” Did you secretly gripe when the 1998 remake of Godzilla wasn’t nominated for any Academy Awards? Please tell the truth and admit that you really did think Halle Berry deserved an Oscar for that mess “Monster’s Ball (yet you are secretly afraid to tell it because you risk being throttled for your admission).” Chile, we all have guilty pleasure flicks. Hell, I have five of them that I’m going to confess to watching every single chance I get…
Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion – Two ditzy blondes get invited to their ten year high school reunion. The plot? Go back to the reunion, even though one of you is unemployed and the other works at a gas station, and impress all the mean girls that picked on you. I swear to God I’ve seen this at least 100 times and laugh harder everytime I see it. My favorite character is definitely the bitter chain smoking Heather Mooney (played by Janeane Garafalo). I still love it!
Bring It On – The movie is about a high school cheer leading competition, starring Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku(Love her), and Gabrielle Union (one of my FAVORITE actresses). I am ashamed to admit it but I know all of the cheers and routines…I seriously hope they make this movie into a musical (lol).
Steel Magnolias – Yes, I know this list just gets scarier. Yet, alas, I love the hell out of these sweet yet feisty old broads. The movie shows that no matter what obstacle life throws at you with: love, laughter, and a little attitude you can overcome all seemingly insurmountable odds.
Madea Goes To Jail – I’m generally predisposed to hating all of Tyler Perry’s movies (love him. Just think his writing is very shallow); however Madea Goes To Jail was some funny shit! My favorite scene is between: Mr. Brown, Cora, and that 65-year-old prostitute with the blonde wig on (“Say it baby! I’m a prostitute! Street Walker…Woman of the night!” LMAO). And don’t even get me started on Ms. Madea…LOL. Rudy Huxtable and Derek Luke had a good storyline goin on; however, this movie belonged to Madea.
The Truth About Cats and Dogs – Uma Thurman and Janeane Garafalo are two of my favorites; however, this is one little movie that makes me feel all warm and tingly inside. It’s a modern day spin on the legend of Cyrano Bergerac. Thurman and Garafalo like the same guy. Janeane’s character is the brain and Uma’s the beauty. May the best gal win!
What are yours?
