1. THE INITIATION OF SARAH-1978
Yes, this is a TV movie starring the legendary Kay Lenz(who??) who was once married to the legendary David Cassidy(lesser who??). This was a movie to rip off, I mean, pay homage to the film Carrie. Kay Lenz plays a shy, quiet girl who has a popular, pretty sister whom she loves and vice versa. They both enter university and want to enter a sorority with the leader being snot nosed Morgan Fairchild. A classic, campy tv flick with pretty, but nasty gals who bully poor Kay Lenz and won't let her in to their stupid sorority. Of course Kay Lenz does get back at them in the most delightful way. High camp at its finest. Don't you just love seeing the 6 Million Dollar man too:)
2. LEGALLY BLONDE-2001
This is Valley Girl meets snot nosed academics when she somehow gets into Harvard just to win back her loser boyfriend who dumped her for being pretty but not much else. Well, she proves him and everyone else wrong when she decides to study and becomes quite good at law despite loving pink. It's a la-la-la comedy meaning it's nice to watch but don't think there is any depth to it. I wonder why they always must show people with brains can only wear brown, black and navy blue while air heads wear bright colours. My favourite is Jennifer Coolidge who plays the beautician.
3. OLD SCHOOL-2003
Now this is one dumb ass of a comedy but I love it. No thought here either but the ballsy comedy (pun intended) appeals to my non sophisticated self. So the plot revolves around a guy who, after breaking up with his girlfriend, buys a home near University fraternities. a tight-assed man (you know the one where you stick a coal up their ass and it comes out a diamond) informs the guy that he can't live there because his home is not a fraternity. What's the guy to do but make his house a fraternity and it is open to middle aged men (plus one very old geezer), geeks and others which just sends the tight-assed man around the bend. This new fraternity seems to have the best parties on the block plus we get to see how all these men are initiated into the club. I love it when Will Ferrell gets a tranquilizer dart into his neck.
What films can you think up?? This week was a tough one for me
