BEST WAYS TO WASTE YOUR TIME


I suppose you could say this is part II of the best ways to waste your time. I'm pretty good at it you see, and after last weeks tv shows, I thought why not share some of my favorite movies. So I compiled a short list of my regulars (in no particular order) ...

1. Bridesmaids. I never saw this movie in theaters but I got it for Christmas last year (from my dad none the less) and it has quickly become one of my favorites, and the misters too. Kristen Wiig is definitely one of my lady crushes right now with her comedic timing and perfect facial expressions. By the end of this movie you want to be her BFF too! Not to mention there is one scene in particular that leaves Eric and I rolling on the floor laughing every. single. time. You know the one!
2. Just Friends. I just can't say enough about this movie, seriously. If you've never seen it before, jump on that bandwagon quickly. Anna Faris is pure gold. And Ryan Reynolds physical comedy is definitely up to Jim Carrey status.
3. Dumb & Dumber. Speaking of Jim Carrey, this is an overall classic in the comedy world. Unless you've been hiding under a rock I'm sure you and your mom have seen this movie (or at least heard of it). I can quote every single line, and "I like it a lot."
4. You've Got Mail. Whoever thought to cast Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan together was a genius. This is one of my mom's favorites, and I love getting to spend quality time together with her watching this movie and fall in love with Meg Ryan all over again. Now if only she didn't have to go and get plastic surgery. Why Meg, why?!!
5. Tangled. I somehow convinced Eric to go and see this with me for date night way back when, and boy I'm glad I did. We both left the theatre with big smiles on our faces. And every now and again Eric likes to sing "Mother knows best" while trying to pry me out of bed. Yes, we have the soundtrack. It's Mandy Moore people!
6. Anne of Green Gables. No shame. All throughout my schooling, whenever I would stay home during a sick day my mom would tuck me in on the couch with hot soup and put in Anne of Green Gables. I can't tell you how much I wanted to be Anne Shirley growing up, with her book smarts and killer confidence. And Gilbert Blythe was one cutie! It's still one of my favorites for those sick days, if only VHS still worked!

Any movies that you watch religiously? Let me know in the comments below.

  3. Tangled is the best movie they've put out hands down. That movie is the BOMB!!!! I love, love, love it.

    Anne of Green Gables. That is a movie that is dear and close to my heart. It is in my top five movies of all time. Megan Follows is so great in that series.

    Man...Dumb and Dumber that was a long time ago. Seriously funny.

    I LOVE Ryan Reynolds. One year my husband and I spent our Anniversary in Santa Barbara. We went up the coast to a little town know for "antiquing, ya know where you might see Rachel Ashwell, well even better we saw Ryan Reynolds. We walked right by him in some back alley as he was taking his coffee to some quaint little cottage on the sea shore. I know it's dreamy. :) Happy Love week,

    Shauna xoxo

  4. JUST Friends has got to be my favorite movie of all time. Or at least one of them. Every single time i watch it, i die laughing.
    Ryan Reynolds is hilarious.. not to mention he is not something bad to look at for 2 hours straight.

  6. you've got mail--amazing! as is sleepless in seattle. i watched you've got mail as my labour began and now it is has a really really special place in my heart. my baby girl obviously has great taste.

    and i didn't get bridesmaids. ok i got the story and everything but i don't know, it just didn't live up to the hype. i was waiting for something more i think.

    my other time wasting moveies: mean girls {no shame here}; the women; breakfast at tiffanys; sex and the city, the first movie; love actually; wimbledon and the holiday. there are loads more but i didn't want to have the longest comment ever ;)

    ReplyDelete
  7. Haha, 'I like it a lot' is something I say on a regular basis.. my boyfriend sadly isnt a fan of dumb and dumber so he never understands why I think its so funny.

    Bridesmaids is also hilarious, I saw it twice at the cinema x

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ahh Tangled is my favourite ♥I've seen it so many times, and my fiancé is so sick of me making him watch it too :D

    ReplyDelete
  9. All classics, nice. My go-to's are Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Hocus Pocus, and September Issue (to name a few).

  14. Oh man.

    I say "I like it a lot" à la Jim Carrey in Dumb & Dumber more times than I care to admit. Bwah!

    My besties and I recently watched it for the umpteenth time during a pampering weekend getaway. We pissed ourselves laughing, as always.

    Yes to You've Got Mail and Bridesmaids -- big fat YES!

    What are my other go-to movies?

    Pretty Woman
    Sleepless in Seattle (HOLLA!)
    Clueless
    While You Were Sleeping
    My Best Friend's Wedding
    10 Things I Hate About You
    The Mighty Ducks (...for sentimental reasons, hahah!)
    Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion

    ...and others I'm sure I'm forgetting!

  15. Haha, yep, movies are a great way to spend some time. I love watching the ones from Lynch - I can always get kinda lost in them ;).

  16. Everytime Bridesmaids is on HBO, I have to sit down and watch it, but only if it is before the dress shop scene (which I am guessing is the one you are talking about). Some of my favorites are Overboard, Baby Boom, The Goonies, Notting Hill...I love movies so I could probably go all day listing my "favorites". Happy Tuesday! xoxo

  17. Bridesmaids was hilarious- my mom and I went to see it together!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Kristin wiig is a queen. She was single-handedly saving SNL!

    ReplyDelete
  19. You've got mail and Anne of green gables, both are the best! I was actually thinking of doing a post like this. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. bridemaids! i held on on watching this for the longest time, but after seeing it couldn't stop! so hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  21. These are great movies! I could watch them all the time too :) My faves to watch regularly is How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Crazy Stupid Love.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Fantastic list!
    I tend to watch 28 Days Later a lot... weird choice but also Adam Sandler movies like Wedding Singer. It's so cliched and ridiculously but I can't help it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. oh anne of green gables, so glad you included that one. i love my audrey--sabrina and breakfast at tiffany's never disappoint.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I LOVE ANNE! I was obsessed with the books and the movies when I was younger. Oh, and I had the biggest crush on Gilbert!! I believed I was destined to end up with Gilbert, haha. Love love love Anne!

  25. Oh, Bridesmaids. I could probably watch it once a week and never get tired of it. Hah.

    Thank you for the You've Got Mail shout out! I really thought I was the only one who loved Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan together. I mean, come on. Sleepless In Seattle? The best.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I actually love all those movies. Chick Flicks are my biggest weakness. I watched Two Weeks Notice last night for about the billionth time.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Bridesmaids is definitely one of them. I also LOVE watching Without A Paddle, She's the Man and recently Pitch Perfect has made it's way to the charts... in terms of comedy. Epic is on a whole other level.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You've Got Mail is my mom's favorite movie too! I can't watch it without thinking of when I was in college and not yet married and I would come home for lunch with my Mom and this would be playing on the TV as she made lunch and we ate and talked.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Stop. It. I LOVE TANGLED. It's a running joke between my friends and I how much we love that movie. And obviously, Bridesmaids is perfection.

  40. i basically watch 500 days of summer on a loop. haha it is bad. some random ones that i always seem to watch as well are Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and What A Girl Wants. i have absolutely no idea how that even happened. i think it is because i always keep them in my room, so i just rotate through them. probably time to switch it up. hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  41. Now I wouldn't call this a waste of time.... I watch the Notebook every time it's on TV. And I echo what Pretzel Thief said above- love 10 Things I Hate About You!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  47. Aw! Love Tangled and "Anne." Such good movies. The later series I "lived" on as a kid.(I have the soundtrack of the former also. :D)

    Also really like Letters to Juliet, While You Were Sleeping, Sweet Home Alabama, 'Lose a Guy in 10 Days,' Did You Hear about the Morgans?, The Holiday, In Her Shoes, The Italian Job, anything Marvel, Mirror Mirror, Lost in Austen and so many more. However, I'll quit now. ;O

    Great blog!
