Good call. I'd nominate most of the movies Drew Barrymore was in mid-90's era. Ever After, Home Fries, Never Been Kissed, Riding In Cars With Boys, etc.

I thought "Boys Don't Cry" was very lovely. It is a perfect date movie; it has pathos.

The last twenty minutes of this film, grandly directed by Joseph Mankiewiecz, simply cannot be described.
Tennessee Williams surely knew how to devise a story.

Yeah, this one is pretty bad. Called While you were Sleeping, I believe?

I always wanted a sequel, where the tabloids start digging into Julia Roberts' past and a sex tape is released on the internet.

Isn't this called Notting Hill? Which, by the way, is one of my favorite chick flicks.

It's the ultimate chick flick Cinderella story... you can be a streetwalking whore, but if Mr. Millionaire gives you a charge card, you can clean yourself up and join high society.

Pretty Woman is really just My Fair Lady, without the watchability. A better version of the story might be Fellini's Nights of Cabiria. There are doubtless many other variations on the same theme.

Pretty Woman is without Audrey Hepburn, too.

LabelKing . . . have you seen Suddenly, Last Summer? If not, then you MUST. It's unbelievable.

Another, EXCELLENT 'woman's picture,' is Room at the Top, with Simone Signoret, and Laurence Harvey. Ms. Signoret won a Best Actress, Oscar for her role as an aging actress who can't compete against a younger woman, who has money besides. It sounds corny, but it's not.

I always enjoy PW. Probably because I saw it when I was something like 11 or so, and blame it for several affinities of mine (or perhaps I already had them as nascent concepts and the movie was a coincidence) -- redheads, 3-pc suits, tuxedoes, great restaurants, room-freaking-service and Lotuses.

Regards,
Huntsman
