This week Hannah has asked us to share our favourite chick flicks for her weekly Movie Meme.
For me it has to be a film that I have mentioned on the blog before, Mystic Pizza.
This 1988 film, set in a pizza restaurant, stars a very young Julia Roberts who is one of my favourite actresses. I love her in My Best Friend’s Wedding which is another great chick flick by the way.
This film is an 80s girly film that I watched with my younger sister. It is a film that I bought again in 2009 to watch during my two week wait when doing IVF. It is a movie about three teenage girls coming of age.
It is a romantic comedy with some very endearing characters that tug at your heart strings.
My favourite character is Kat who is played by Annabeth Gish. In my last post about this film I said that she was also in Space Camp but in fact she isn’t, that is Lea Thompson (oops) but what she is in is The West Wing, where she plays the presidents eldest daughter.
I like Kat because she is the good daughter who falls in love with someone that she shouldn’t. Annabeth plays the part very well and you really feel for her as you know that the relationship she so craves can never work.
The actresses playing the sisters and friend in the movie really work well together and make this film complete.
There was also one memorable line said by a very young, little known actor called Matt Damon!!!
I think this film was a springboard for him and Roberts and Gish who have all gone on to be big stars, but for me this is an honest, heartwarming portrayal of being a teenage girl and trying to please everyone in your life whilst also being true to yourself.
A great feel good movie about being a girl!
