While Adam Sandler isn't necessarily the Sweeties cup of tea, we will gladly celebrate The Wedding Singer, the 1998 homage to the 80s as a rom com that we absolutely loved! We can take Adam Sandler in small doses, but we love his toned done portrayal of true romantic Robbie Hart, wedding singer extraordinaire, who gets left at the altar by bitchy fiancee Linda and vows off love forever. But who can say no to true love when you befriend cute as a button Julia, played by Drew Barrymore?? We'll always have a fond place in our heart for the 1980s, a truly wild decade that spawned really questionable fashion choices yet insanely catchy pop music, and while The Wedding Singer exaggerates things a bit, we'll never forget that the 80s were a great time for mullets and purple eyeshadow. We'll chat about if the 80s really had the best weddings (banquet halls, blue tuxedos, hair band veils!), if Robbie really had any talent at all as a singer, and what is the perfect style kiss for your wedding day? Well kiss my grits, love stinks!
Get out your Victorian era hankies, it's time for another tear jerker! We're huge fans of the 1994 version of Little Women staring 90s it girl and Sweetie look-a-like Winona Ryder! We saw this movie in theaters and lapped up all the feminist undertones, shook our fists at that brat Amy especially when she decides to marry Laurie (WTF!) while sobbing hysterically when Claire Dane's sweet Beth's weak heart finally gives out! And kittens! Omg why are there so many kittens in this movie?! We'll talk about how interesting it is to watch this movie in our 30s versus when we were 8 and 11, and how we've moved from Team Laurie to Team Old German Professor Dude. I mean Laurie is a big old baby and March family stalker and needs to get a life. We'll also chat about how we've always wanted to wear a hoop skirt, how curling your hair in 1864 must have been terrifying, and how this very quintessential New England movie makes us feel so cozy inside!
Two things that were really HUGE in 1996 were Michael Jordan (literally so tall) and Looney Tunes, so OF COURSE best idea ever let's put them in a movie together, add a dash of Bill Murray and Newman and a really sappy song by R. Kelly (cough cough trash bag) and BOOM blockbuster! So Space Jam was born and all the 10 year olds were happy! Sweety is a big fan of this film, but Sweetie the elder has never seen it all the way through yet still got the chills when MJ popped out of that space ship to the rousing chorus of I Believe I Can Fly. We'll talk about what it was like growing up during peak MJ era (Chicago Bulls yeahhhh), how Bill Murray makes everything better, and who are favorite Looney Tune really is. I believe I can flyyyyyyyyyy.
