My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Thursday 13 - Guilty Pleasures: Movie Edition

Happy Thursday to you all!      Today is my friend's work baby shower, so I get to pick up a cute cake in a few hours that I will not partake in... I had so much fun buying her gifts yesterday too! I collected money for the group gifts, and I got to go spend over $400 of money that wasn't mine.. how fun is that?! LOL

Anyway - On to the Thursday 13... This week is a list of movies that I love... that aren't necessarily quality movies, but if they come on TV even though I own the DVD, I have to stop what I'm doing and watch! LOL

  1. Never Been Kissed - This is such a cute movie to me - Drew Barrymore should only do romantic comedies because that's what she's best at IMHO.. Wait.. isn't that all she does anyway? HAHA!
  2. He's Just Not That Into You - Wow, Drew is in this one too.. This has a great ensemble cast and I love all of the story lines.
  3. Love, Actually - Ditto #2 - great cast, love all of the interweaving story lines.   The little boy's love story is one of my favorites... sigh.. I need to watch this one again soon! :)
  4. The Holiday - I'm not a huge fan of Jude Law, but I loved his role in this movie.
  5. Coyote Ugly - Girl moves to big city.. girl meets boy.. typical cute little movie! :) 
  6. The Wedding Singer - OMG I love this movie...  I'm an 80's girl all the way, and I love Adam Sandler movies as well.. and look again, Drew Barrymore! hahaha
  7. The Breakfast Club/Sixteen Candles/MOST John Hughes films - I hesitated to place these in here because I don't think they're cheesy enough to be a "guilty pleasure" but they are all movies that I'll stop and watch at any point.. they're classics to me! I grew up with them and loved each movie. Pretty in Pink is not one that I cared for as much, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it!
  8. 27 Dresses - another great movie - and unfortunately I'm relating to being in everyone's wedding but not in my own! haha!!!
  9. The Lost Boys - Not a great movie by ANY stretch of the imagination.. but I loved it!  I was a die hard Corey Haim (RIP) fan... He was plastered all over my wall when I was a pre-teen! :)
  10. The Princess Bride - this is another one that I hesitated to put in here b/c while it is cheesy, I think it's on a lot of people's top movies of all time... a great movie!!! 
  11. Rat Race - This movie is absolutely HILARIOUS to me....   My favorite duo was Seth Green and his brother - OMG..... hahaha  I need to watch this again soon too!
  12. Grease 2 - I'll admit... I think I prefer this to the original Grease.. 
  13. Road House - Loved this movie!  RIP Patrick Swayze
I obviously could only list 13...  What are some of the ones that you feel I should have included?  I'm famous for not having seen many movies, so hopefully you'll give me some ideas of movies that I need to watch! :)

Happy Thursday - we're one day closer to the lovely weekend.. WAHOO!!! :)

Join in the fun!
Thursday 13

I remember a time when I could quote lines from the Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles :) Several other favorites on your list too.

Grease 2...just yes.

I have had a girl-crush on Michelle Phieffer since she climbed that ladder singing about a Cool Rider.

I don't even know if I've seen the orginal all the way through even once, but I can not count the times I've seen Grease 2. I was going to marry Michael Carrington.

Ah, the memories.

I love The Breakfast Club. Two of my very favorites not on your list are "Ghost" (my favorite Patrick Swayze movie) and "St. Elmos Fire" (Rob Lowe has always made me drool!)

Heather said...

I'm an 80's fan - all the way! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Wedding Singer and have both soundtracks!!

I also love stupid comedies like "Dodgeball". Of course, the crush on Vince Vaughn helps that!

Great list! I LOVE your Thursday 13! I may have to look into something like that. :-)

Sarah said...

Beetlejuice, Steel Magnolias, Hope Floats are some of my faves.

Bandita Senorita said...

Have you seen The Count of Monte Cristo? It is a good romance--but historical (set in Europe) if you like that sort of thing. I like a lot of your list.

Bringing Pretty Back said...

I'm totally with you on The Holiday - don't so much care for Jude Law (I do like to look at him though) but it really is a cute movie!

P.S. Your blog background is awesome - I love it!

What?? The Lost Boys is not a good movie, by any stretch? I'd ask what sort of crack you're smoking, but that's hardly polite.

What made The Lost Boys great was ... hmm.


Okay, so it wasn't a great movie. But ... it WAS. Somehow.
