Random Thursday: Feel Good Movies (Not The Dirty Kind)

Welcome to Random Thursday!

You guys have no idea how stinkin' happy it makes me to see that so many of you fabulous bloggers continue to link up with Em, Sarah, and I on weekly basis. You guys rock our socks off!

This weeks topic is:

As fun as this topic is, it was SO damn hard for me to narrow it down. For real guys, I could've gone on forever with a list of movies that I tune into when I need a pick me up. Who's a movie buff? This girl *points to self* that's who! So much so that I'm even hosting a Movie Night Swap...ok, sorry, last time I plug it into a post (again). Promise. Maybe.

Alright, so these are the top 6 movies I put on when I'm feeling down & need a good laugh or just something to make me feel better.

The Wedding Singer: A cute ass love story, rockin' 80's music, crazy stupid fashion, and a fantastic wedding planning montage? I'm in!

Pineapple Express: If you don't think this movie's hilarious it's probably because you haven't watched in the right state of mind. No lie, I know almost all of it by heart.

Fools Rush In: Ever want to know what my family's like? Just watch this movie. Rusty thought he was attending a wedding the first time he came over for a family dinner, yeah, there's A LOT of us. Our favorite quote has to be "the white people are melting out here!" when they're out on the lake for 5 de Mayo. White people really do burn easily. I have to carry around SPF 65 for Rusty everywhere we go.

RockNRolla: This movie has so many big names in it, it's hard to believe I'd never seen it til about 3 years ago. Great story line, cool English accents, Tom Hardy playing a gay dude, and Thandie Newton & Gerard Butler dancing together. Also, that's totally where I got my smooth dance moves from.

National Lampoons Vacation: I love all of the 'Vacation' movies but seeing as this one's the original, it's the best, IMO. You gotta love creepy cousin Eddie & his homemade ketchup.

Just Go With It: Never would I have imagined these two stars making a good movie together but they did. I didnt see it in theaters, which I'm now bummed about, but I make sure to watch it every time it's on TV, even if it's halfway through. Jennifer Aniston in a bikini? Damn, I wish I looked that hot. Brooklyn Decker ain't got shit on her.

Next weeks topic: Favorite YouTube Videos


  1. Great choice! I love Fools Rush in, too =) And if you love Rock'nRolla, I'm sure you will go for Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Snatch has Brad Pitt as a mumbling boxer and the other film ist just as great. You gotta hand it to Guy Ritchie: apart from his private life, this guy rocks! =)

  2. Moves! I just can't get enough! Could watch movies all day every day!

  3. MMM. Gerard Butler is the epitome of hot. I can see why you like that movie ;) What a great list! The Wedding Singer is such an amazing classic!

  4. I love Pineapple Express. But honestly, I love Superbad even more. That movie never gets old!

  5. Wedding singer! Remember what Drew Barrymore used to be like in "Haven't Been Kissed" and "Ever After"? She's changed quite a bit, but I still love her.

  6. Oh, I love the Wedding Singer. Particularly Steve Buscemi. Pure class. You're making me want to watch Rocknrolla again - I barely remember it!

    Excellent choices. Excellent.

  7. I LOVE the Wedding Singer and, surprisingly, I enjoyed just Go With It - although I enjoyed the original so much more. The original is called Cactus Flower and starred a very young Walter Matthau, and a very very young Goldie Hawn. Great old film!

    Have a fabulous weekend!!

  8. One of my fav movies of all time is Christmas Vacation. I laugh so fucking hard every single time and everyone looks at me like I have a serious disability. Which, I totally don't, it's just fucking hilarious. And Pirate Radio. I can watch that on repeat.

  9. Just Go With It is so good. I really like it and it's a movie I can watch over and over again. I know that some people don't like Jennifer Aniston but she is great in rom-coms.

  10. Oh WOW! I looooooooooove Pineapple Express! Such a fantastic movie!!

  11. i love the wedding singer! and the soundtrack :)

  12. Ok, I seriously am now feeling a huge amount of pressure for the movie swap. Fingers crossed I meet your xpecations...set 'me low to help me out. ;)
