The Back Up Plan

The Back Up Plan is definately in my top 3. Whenever I have girlfriends over they always request that we watch this so I must’ve seen it at least 20 times. I love the humour, the eye candy and of course Jennifer Lopez.

Alex O’Loughlin is relatively new on the chick flick scene and boy have we been missing him. He has a seriously hot body and his comedic timing is impeccable.

So when you go buy this DVD, I also recommend that you also get the soundtrack. I think ‘What is Love’ by Jennifer Lopez is my favourite, a great track to bop around the kitchen too.

I look forward to any challengers to try and knock this off my top spot!

The Help

I’ve just swiped this book from my Mum and it’s a definate must read. Now I’m only half way through but I can already tell it’s going to be really inspiring.

I love the trailer, I reckon it’s going to be very moving.

 

I’m always really nervous about books that are made into films because I really get disappointed that it just doesn’t live up to my expectations. In fact, some of the most popular re makes of books I really just can’t watch.

The Help is out in cinemas right now so let me know what you think.

The Heartbreak Kid

 Happy wife, happy life!

Watching this film was a last resort when I went back home for the weekend and wanted a light hearted film to fall asleep to. This was the best thing my sister could come up with. It isn’t horrendous but that depends on your type of humour. Ben Stiller only seems to do the same kind of film which I always have to be in a certain mood in order to enjoy it. I’d recommend it if you haven’t got anything to do but it certainly won’t make it into my top 20. 

Crossroads

Dreams change. Friends are forever

In my earlier geeky days I actually owned the video of Crossroads in French. Sad I know! So when trying to choose my next freebies from work I decided to get this film and actually see it in English for once. This wasn’t my boyfriend’s idea of Friday night entertainment but I have to say that he was persuaded when Britney Spears started jumping round in her underwear. britney_spears_crossroads01

 

Despite the pretty semi-naked girls I love the cheesyness of this film. I love the issues that the story lines approach, with the final lesson being just to follow your dreams. You can’t get much better than that! Plus there’s always the added bonus of the gorgeous Anson Mount.

A Walk To Remember

If you’ve never seen this film then stop reading now, I don’t want to spoil the ending for you. I’ve found the best bits video from youtube so check it out. The soundtrack it amazing as well. 

Mandy Moore and Shane West make the greatest onscreen couple. I love how much he loves her. You’ve got to have a good struggle to get an onscreen couple together in order to really be able to say awwwww!!

As this story is such a shocker I won’t reveal the ending but if you miss it then you’re missing out. And if you don’t get through a whole box of tissues by the end then you’re totally heartless.

Love is like the wind. You cannot see it but you can always feel it!

Best Food to go with your film!

What you do when watching your film is totally up to you but it can totally make your evening in. Anything can set the mood  and make watching your film so much better. So here are my personal faves!!

A glass of wine

I’m a bit of a lighweight so I only need one glass of wine, it just relaxes me so much! I so prefer rose over white or red! It’s great to share a bottle with a few friends.

 

A Hot Chocolate with Marshallows

I hate being cold in winter and hot chocolate can warm you up as well as make you feel so much better. Chocolate and warmth in a mug you can’t get much better than that!

If you have any other favourite accompaniments for your film then let me know!!
