confession.

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:

Serendipity -- I mean HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE JOHN CUSACK IN THAT MOVIE?

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.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

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

Happy Wednesday,
xoxo,
Jenn

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. Yes....my 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.

:P

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.
