Significantly and absolutely better than You’ve Got Mail.
I admit it! I got this movie when I was in the midst of my Beatles obsession in my teens. It’s full of their early music and rather campy (although definitely not as campy as Help), but I still enjoy watching it from time to time. And, I also have to admit, I found them pretty cute.
Ok, this is one my guiltiest of all guilty pleasures. I really only watch it for Kate Winslet and Jack Black (their budding romance is so much better than Jude and Cameron’s), the beautiful, overly-indulgent/unrealistic sets, and Eli Wallach–that dear, dear man. (The writing is meh.)
Yeesh, that’s a tough one. It’s probably subject to change, but since I can’t think of anyone else right now, I would have to say Ida Corwin from Mildred Pierce, because she’d make a funny friend, and she’s the kind of woman whose witty/wisecracking attitude I aspire to have. Gotta love Eve Arden!
I don’t know, but I just can’t seem to sit through this movie. It may be one of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic roles (even though I think she’s done better!), but I just never had patience with the dragging plot line, or Holly Golightly’s flighty character.
The first two Mummy films were good enough… But then they had to produce this one. I knew it would be garbage when I learned that Rachel Weisz wasn’t reprising her role as Evelyn, but I saw it anyway and was still disappointed. Brendan Fraser, whyyyyyy??
