Rene has never seen the Sarah Jessica Parker motion picture epic Girls Just Want to Have Fun. For my sister and I GJWTHF was a VHS staple when were growing up. We would duplicate the dance moves and watch, re-watch and then watch again when the nun did the pommel horse routine! I still love that part!
But Rene had never seen it.
When we were at Target she found the DVD for $5 when she was looking for Fantastic Mr. Fox and thought that $5 was a low enough price tag to risk not liking a movie. So today we got that and Fantastic Mr. Fox. We watched both. Girls does not hold up quite as well to aged eyes.
Today’s picture is of our movies:
I can still recommend both of these highly, even if one of them benefits in a major way from nostalgia. I’m also particularly fond of the Photoshop job done on the cover of Girls. It’s worth a trip to Target just so you can see it in person. I especially like how you can see the matte lines around SJP’s head.
See you tomorrow!
