Loc: A glorious bold new America


One of my all-time favorites is The Wedding Singer with Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler. Partly the 1980's soundtrack, partly a lot of very funny moments, and just two very likeable characters, and a very likeable supporting cast as well. I kind of fall in love with Drew Barrymore a little every time I watch her in this movie, and it's one I can't resist watching again every time it's on.

Another I love is Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion, with Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow. Mostly just the friendship between the two girls, and the underdog sympathy you have for them, amid the vicious cliques they endured in high school, that they're reluctant to experience again by attending their 10th high school reunion. Both the best and worst scenarios possible occur, which I found really interesting.

Over the years after high school running into classmates, I came to realize I was a lot more popular than I felt back when I was in school. And I think most of us experience that, and that feeling in virtually everyone was vicariously well explored through characters of various cliques in the movie.

Another I love, more of a comedy, but with elements of romance, female bonding and ruthless cattiness,
She Gets What She Wants.

A very funny movie about the rivalry between two queen-bee girls, with a delightfully small-town Texas twist.

Another with Adam Sandler, Spanglish. About a restaurant owner/chef and his wife who hire a Mexican single mother (with a young daughter) who barely speaks English, and gradually learns functional English while in their employ. It also shows a mutual admiration develop between the two, that transcends their being separated by both language and culture. A really nice romantic story, enjoyable in its twists for both what happens, and also what doesn't happen. It engages, and defies expectations.

Until I saw the above two movies, I never really through of Sandler as a romantic guy. But certainly in these two movies, he is.
