I still can’t believe there’s a movie about a girl making a bet with her stepbrother that if he can get a virgin to sleep with him, he can also sleep with her.
39. “Leaving Las Vegas”: When it came out in Japan, the movie was called “I’m Drunk and You’re a Prostitute.”
Bridget Jones is my spirit animal. I feel like I get her in ways I’m not supposed to understand movie characters.
Cruel Intentions also brought together bad boy Ryan Phillippe and girl-next-door Reese Witherspoon, who were up against Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp for most amazing 90s couple ever.
That’s one thing I’ve noticed while indulging this melancholy: the best songs for weepy introspection always, always, always reference coffee. Below, the best “sad-coffee” playlist in the world. Put it on, wait for it to drizzle outside, brew a fresh pot and curl up in a window sill. It’s time to stare out into the street, sip some joe and feel super sad.
I will not watch It’s a Wonderful Life, and I will not watch Miracle on 34th Street, and I will not watch any animated special urging me to celebrate the holiday season in Technicolor (that means no Grinch, no red-nosed reindeer, no Charlie Brown, and no grandma roadkill).
I look at you and I would rather look at you than all the naked pictures of Ryan Philipe in the world except possibly that ass shot in Cruel Intentions occasionally and anyway you haven’t even seen that movie, which thank heavens so you can watch it for the first time with me.
