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.
