The first movie I loved was Casper the friendly ghost, and with it came my first celebrity crush. I remember seeing this movie in the cinema when it came out and thinking that the guy playing Casper, we were basically the same age, was just unbelievably cute. When I watched the same movie some 10+ years later, expecting this hunk to show up at the end of the movie, and a 13 year old boy appeared, I was mildly grossed out.
The second movie I loved was not just one movie, but two. It was of course sister act 1 and 2 with Whoopi Goldberg. At that time I proclaimed to my step brother, who is the same age as me, that my favourite actress in the whole world was Whoopi Goldberg, closely followed by Goldie Hawn in second place. Every Christmas he reminds me of this while he is trying to stop himself from laughing out loud, he still thinks it’s that funny. But Whoopi had something, and who doesn't love a good musical/nun story?
My third cinematic love came in the form of a dynamic trio of ladies: Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton and Bette Midler. I have a feeling this movie passed you by, but this is still, to this day, my all-time favourite. That means it trumps Troy and that scene where brad Pitt is naked. Really. It is of course the first wives club. Never seen it you say? Well haven't you missed out. This is a semi feministic gem of a movie, and they sing at the end. Get.it.now. Or don't, but at least you know it exists.
And the last movie crush I had was Mean Girls. Honest to god, I love this movie. I can quote lines, and often do (sad), but it is my happy movie. If I need some headless entertainment this goes in the DVD player and I can spend some time in a world so incredibly far removed from mine. Thanks Lindsay Lohan, I owe you one.
So I am curious, what are your favourite movies?
