OK...I really suck at this week's theme probably because I just never cared for this. Knowing that I would rather be sitting on hot coals getting my teeth drilled than going to my High School reunion might be one reason. The other is that I just don't know many films with this theme that I have seen. I am still dealing with my illness so I have been slow here on blogland. Anyhoo, this is hosted by Wandering Through The Shelves so you can head over and see what the others have picked. Alas I am picking 2 that i have seen and one that I haven't because that's just the way it goes. You can let me know if the last one is even worth it to see.
1. PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED-1986
I have not seen this film since it came out so I am a bit rusty on this movie but I do remember enjoying it. It stars Kathleen Turner as Peggy, disenchanted with her marriage and separated from her husband, going to her High School reunion. Once there, after being made Homecoming Queen she faints and wakes up to 1960 and reliving her last few days of high school just before she got knocked up by her now and future husband played by Nicholas Cage. I recall it being sweet, fun and intelligent.
2. GROSS POINTE BLANK-1997
I can take John Cusack most times and this is one of those times. He plays a hitman who decides to go to his high school reunion since it comes at a time he needs to lay low. Even though all his former classmates ask him what he does and he tells the truth, they, naturally, don't believe him. He meets up with his former high school flame and, let's say, things get complicated. It's fun in a dark way which I like.
3. ROMY AND MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION-1997
I have not seen this film so I am really bending the rules here but I am going to ask you (if you have seen this film) what you think of it. It's about 2 friends who stayed friends after High School going back to their reunion and, believing they didn't amount to much, decide to make up a huge story about how successful they are. When it first came out in the theatres, I thought it looked quite stupid but maybe I am wrong. What are your thoughts.
What films have you come up with?
TV SHOW-FRASIER'S CURSE
I love Frasier and find this was one of the wittiest shows ever. This, I have seen!
