I.. love ridiculously cheesy chick flicks.

(insert shame here.)


I also have a tendency to watch them repeatedly.  The earliest I can remember was a movie called Crazy From the Heart, starring Christine Lahti.  She was a high school principal in a South Texas school and fell in love with the janitor.  (I did my reseach and actually found the vhs version a few years.  Now? I own it.)

If you ask me my top 3 favorite movies, they are 1) Gone With The Wind, 2) Never Been Kissed, and 3) the Notebook.  (Mike C., I know I wavered when you asked me, but he's a Calhoun, come on.)

I've seen NBK and The Notebook at least 30 times, each.

And I still love them.

With no shame.

Other top favs:


Fools Rush In -- The scene were Matthew Perry's character has to tell his friend that he got married and throws his hand up to flash the wedding ring??  I have repeated that same move in photos.  I KID YOU NOT.

My Fake Fiance -- I've a child of the 80's and 90's.  Clarissa and "Woah?!" in the same movie??? YES PLEASE.  And their upcoming TV show?  WOO!!!


Sometimes, my musical choices reflect my personal cheesiness.  Case in Point:  Heather Locklear & Hillary Duff in "The Perfect Man",... I pulled down Better than This from Kimberly Locke.  Love that song!

This past Sunday, Lucky 7 was on television.  It's Patrick Dempsey and it's cute and dorky and yes I own that DVD of that one too

And I heard "So You Are To Me", by Eastmountainsouth.  It's a beautiful song that I think you'll enjoy.


Any favorite cheesy chick flick loves or songs you love?  Share!

Happy Wednesday,

I LOVE cheesy movies and television shows. Period.

NBK is one of my most favorite movies ever. And Ever After. I <3 Drew Barrymore in those roles. I own a lot of cheesy romance movies....and books. love carries over to books too.

And John Cusack is my star crush. Sigh.

Sweet Home Alabama and How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days are two of my most favorites.

And cheesy teen movies....Can't Hardly Wait and Empire Records got me through college. Loved them.

I could go on and on but then I would just embarrass myself.

Clarissa Explains it all!! I was thinking about that show this week when I saw the preview for her new show. I loved seeing her crazy outfits and hairdo and secretly wishing that I could look that cool.

Ever After--love it!
Where the Heart Is--ditto.
Although not romantic, I could watch Thelma and Louise every day.

I also loved The Holiday, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility (although I am not sure how high they would rate on the cheese factor).

And I love Sleeping with the Enemy.

I pretty much own entirely girly movies. I love them. I'm not a particular fan of Drew Barrymore, but I like her movies despite her presence, ha! :)

And to make Christy feel old (I love you!), Empire Records was my favorite movie in 6th/7th grade :)

I really loved Crazy from the Heart and forgot ALL about it until you mentioned! :O)
My two favorites lately are Pride and Prejudice (the Keira Knightly version) and Sense and Sensibility (the Emma Thompson version).
I'm in a Jane Austin phase I guess.

I'm just not a big movie watcher, but I may check some of these out.
