Hello ladies! I am so excited to get to talk with you about one of my favorite subjects—entertainment. I am a self-avowed entertainment connoisseur (because connoisseur sounds much better than junkie). And my tastes definitely run the gamut—I consider Milk and Revolutionary Road to be two of my favorite films from last year, just as much as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Twilight (oh yes, Twihards, I am one of you). Just like my father—who after countless wine tastings, books on the subject and even his membership in a wine club, still maintains that a $9 bottle from the grocery is one of his favorites—I understand the value of both high- and lowbrow. I will certainly trek downtown to an obscure theater with stale popcorn to see the “It Indie” of the moment, but I will also never turn my nose up at such classics as Joe Versus The Volcano, Troop Beverly Hills or How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days. After a rough day, or a long week, heavy films can be overrated, and for me the formula is quite simple—if you make me laugh, you win my heart. So while there are certain movies that I could recite every line from, and that I will watch again and again, they might not be the ones most prominently displayed by my TV.
Ladies, I’ve told you some of mine—what are some your favorite guilty pleasure movies?
