Honestly how did I miss this movie in the theatres? We netflixed this movie due to Bevan and Amanda's recommendation and I could not have been happier. Music and Lyrics
I was ready to pull out my parachute pants and swatch watch (yes i have worn both) while watching.
I do not go to movies because I am so incredibly picky about seeing half dressed, swearing, violent people on a big screen... and I am cheap. I become each movie I see, if one of the characters is getting yelled at then I am getting yelled at. If one of the characters is going to the prom with Freddie Prince Jr., then I am going to the prom with him too. My husband says, I can't just sit back and enjoy a movie. True. True. Which is another reason why I do see a lot of movies.
Anyway back to this movie. I loved it. The 80's music in the background. The Pop 80's video at the beginning. want to hear the song. I just loved the 80's. Drew Barrymore was great, she looked fantastic. If I had her email I would tell her so. I fell in love with her sunglasses she wore and googled them. for only $285 they could be mine... ya I don't think so.
Then the part I could not stop laughing. In case I ever forget how insanely crazy I recently acted at the John Cougar Mellancamp concert, I can watch this movie and remind myself. Kristen Johnston plays a mom who goes crazy when hearing music from her past and the scene of her going nuts at the hotel concert, was me at the recent concert. Only my blouse was not as low as hers.
I loved, loved this movie. I didn't want it to end. I watched every blooper and making of the movie and even watched the last 10 minutes twice.
Is there I chance I am not a movie hater? What else is out there that I am missing? Are there other movies this good? Could this rank higher than Pretty in Pink?
I could have done with out the half dressed teen pop star, but all and all it was so great!
Any other recommendations now that I am on a movie kick.
- On the music and lyrics website you can really relive the 80's with your own pop band.
- Ever recognize a product you've seen on screen? If you've ever been in the midst of watching your favorite show and thought, "Oh my! I HAVE those jeans!" or "I love this song! I want that, then check out Seen On.
