Cruel Intentions from 1999 stars a bevy of 90s megastars in a retelling of the salacious French novel, Dangerous Liaisons. Rich kids are so bored, they have to continually fuck with other people's lives to remain interested in their own! Wow, WISH we had that problem. Starring Ryan Phillipe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Selma Blair, Joshua Jackson and a tiny bitty baby Reese Witherspoon this movie was the talk of the high school halls back in '99. From the girl on girl make out to the sweaty sex scene to a Counting Crows song (gah, so 90s) nobody could talk about anything else ... until the Blair Witch Project came out. We'll talk about how we never really loved Ryan Phillipe, (we think it's the pube hair?), whether we think SMG is a good actress, and sing many rounds of Bittersweet Symphony, a song that we played on repeat for most of 1999.
Back to Sequels September guys! We decided to watch another movie franchise where we were much more familiar with the sequel vs the original. Three Men and Little Lady from 1990 checks back in with Peter, Michael and Jack as they are all now "fathers" to adorable Mary, who is now 6 years old. Her mother Sylvia is dating penis head Edward and after realizing, despite really being in love with Peter, that he's never going to confess his love to her, she decides to marry Edward ASAP and move to England with Mary! The guys are bummed and try to get back to their old bachelor lifestyles, but realize they can't live without Sylvia and Mary. So they fly over to England and attempt to win Sylvia back. Americans in England hijinks ensue! We got tiny cars! We got sheep! We got butlers! We got a scary private school! We got vicars! We love this movie and couldn't get enough of it as kids. We'll talk about how HOT Tom Selleck is, whatever happened to Steve Guttenberg and how much of a gemstone Ted Danson is forever and always. What a crock!
Time for another Disney classic! From way back when 1950, Cinderella is a tale as old as time and one that captivated us as little children. Who doesn't love a rags to riches story combined with evil stepmother/step sisters, and cute as a button anthropomorphic mice and birds?!! They wear shoes for god's sake! We're still really obsessed with this movie and bet you are too, despite their being several iterations and musical and live action versions over the years. The Disney classic remains at the top of the list! We'll talk about how funny the little mice STILL are, where this Prince (Charming?) ranks in our hottest princes in the Disney universe, and try to get to the bottom of why Disney hates cats so much?
Tonight we did Shag! A 1989, girls gone wild movie that's all about cute Southern boys, the Miss Sun Queen contest, and shagging! One of Sweetie's favorite films from her childhood as it taught her all about 'doing it at the ripe old age of nine years old, Shag takes place in South Carolina in the summer of 1963. It's Carson's last hurrah as she is set to marry Harley (the square) until she unexpectedly falls in love with a handsome stranger (Buzz!) and realizes that marriage is for the birds! This movies stars three ladies who were a pretty big deal in the 1980s - Phoebe Cates, Bridget Fonda, and Annabeth Gish and also features great music, amazing 60s costumes, and a lovely story about living out your dreams - whether that be going to Hollywood or sleeping with the town redneck, entering a dance contest, nabbing the southern gentleman fiancee of your bff, or getting nailed in the cabin of a boat called Daddy's Little Girl. Dream big people! We'll talk about our own trip to Myrtle Beach on a Dumas family vacay in 1998, if a penis actually has a bone in it, and what Shag character do we most identify with. He's a sweet potato!
