So, I rented Failure to Launch with Sara Jessica Parker,
as well as Rumor has it....  I loved it! Failure was the typical he loves her, she loves him thing, plus shes getting paid by his parents to move him out of her house.. I loved it!! ;D Also, Rumor was awesome, if kinda kreepy in some of its ideas(blunt testicular trauma) :o

Ever After was on the other night. I've seen it a million times, I can practically quote all of it, I know Drew Barrymore's accent is atrocious, and yet I can never resist watching it! The very girly-girl who wants to be a princess in me just loves that movie. So that's one of my guilty pleasures.

The girly girl in me loves Ever After too.

The other weekend, I dragged my boyfriend to see The Devil Wears Prada--it wasn't half bad. Even the boyfriend liked it, partly, I think because Meryl Streep is just deliciously EVIL.

(I have a flash spoof I'm making of Devil, entitled The Guildmaster Wears Dreadmist. It's in honour of a friend who got reamed by her guildmaster for missing an Onyxia run because she was in the hospital.)


The other chick flick I saw somewhat recently was that Reese Witherspoon movie, Just Like Heaven, which I saw because my parents recommended it to me. (They watched it because it had Jon Heder in it.)

Anyway, it was cute, if mostly forgettable, but I had a hard time suspending my disbelief. Not because I couldn't buy the "ghost" story, but because it was set in San Francisco and Mark Ruffalo's character could find parking for his truck without circling the block EVEN ONCE.

I really enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada, too. And the guy I was with seemed to enjoy it. (A little too much, perhaps. He had the most annoying braying laugh--it was pretty embarrassing. Needless to say, it was a first and last date.) Anyway, some of my thoughts are here. You'll need to go down about 8 posts to read it.

And I like Just Like Heaven, mostly because I like both the main characters. And, after that movie, I was convinced I wanted to marry a landscape architect. Because I wanted someone to make me a beauuutiful garden all my own.

Or I can just make my significant other take me to a beautiful garden/park. Either works.  ;)

I need to get around to seeing Just Like Heaven. My two stand-by chick flicks are "Drive Me Crazy" and "10 Things I Hate About You"

Both excellent movies.

Drive Me Crazy?! Is that because you are in love with Adrian Grenier too?

Well, all I have to say is that I called him first.  ;)

Oh, stand-byes....let me think. (Is that the correct plural of stand-by?)

Favourite chick flicks evar and/or girlie indulgences:

- Pride and Prejudice (just about ANY version, although some I naturally prefer over others)

- Newsies (my friends refer to this as Teenaged Girl Porn)

- Truly, Madly, Deeply (When I fell in love with Alan Rickman)

- The Scarlet Pimpernel. (Because you know, they seek him here, they seek him there...etc.)

- The Princess Diaries   (I love the books too. Meg Cabot continually makes references to the movies in the books, and makes Mia grouse about how they made Grandmere TOO NICE in the movies, when everybody knows she's really EVIL.)

- French Kiss  



When I'm feeling really girly and want to drive my boyfriend from the room with the power of estrogen alone, I get out my nail polish, paint my toes, and watch my Jem and the Holograms DVDs.

Stand-byes? Ooh, this is difficult. I guess I'll stick with the ones I own. *Chimera quickly scans her horde of DVDs/videos for chick-flicky ones*

-Emma--the Gwenyth Paltrow version, of course (The banter between Emma and Mr. Knightly is some of my favorite movie dialogue ever.)

-Aladdin (He was my first true love. I know he's a cartoon, but man was he HOT. And smart and funny and earnest--yeah, I still like him.)

-While You Were Sleeping (So quirky and funny. What girl doesn't love this movie? 'Nuff said.)

-Room with a View (Please, please will some gorgeous guy make out with me in a field of flowers in Italy?)

-Bend it Like Beckham (It's about people who are East Indian living in London. A mix of two things I think are really cool. And I relate to her dilemma of wanting to follow her dreams, even if her family doesn't agree. Oh, and Scottish boy is cute, too.)

-My Big Fat Greek Wedding (Another funny/romantic one. I seem to require humor with my romance. Go figure.)

Oh, you mean Jonathon Rhys-Meyers. *licks lips* Yes, he's yummy. In my head, he plays my assassin boy for my embryonic fantasy novel.

Ahaha, I love the Scarlet Pimpernel! The one with Jane Seymor in it, right? Because that's the only one worth watching in my book.

And Adrien is ok, but I really just love the movie because Melissa Joan Hart has just kind of always been my own personal Mary Sue.

Did you ever watch her in that old Nickelodeon show "Clarissa Explains It All" ? I will always think of her that way. Ah, nostalgia.  :)

Yep, and it was because of that show I became a huge fan of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
