Beth: "The Trouble with Angels"!!!! Love that movie!!! The sequel ("Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows") not so much.

Has anyone seen a movie that came out around 1974 called "Our Time"? It had Pamela Sue Martin from Dynasty and Parker Stevenson from The Hardy Boys (also Kirstie Alley's ex) and it was kind of like a girls version of A Separate Peace. I must have watched that movie with one of my friends a dozen times.

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

The Accused and Extramities. A double feature.

Bridget Jones Diary

Devil Wears Prada

Thia said...

I forgot about some of these movies to include Somewhere in Time. I loved that movie. Others: Pretty Woman, Only You, While you were sleeping, Runaway Bride (I know, I know - guilty pleasure), and definitely the BBC Pride and Prejudice.

Kinda true. My adult daughter & I went to see this & we were literally on the floor in our row, dying laughing at Ed Helms. & Coop is pretty.

@Gail Banks - That movie convinced me I had a calling to become a nun. One problem; not Catholic..... but I have worked in service one way or another all my adult life.

Lisa Wolfinger said...

Going way, way back- "The Best of Everything" with Joan Crawford. I highly recommend it!

rosie riveter said...

First Wives Club

cheesegrater15 said...

The Women - the one with Joan Crawford. Absolute classic. Might watch it tonight when I get home from work.

Geeljire said...

Requiem for a Dream

Han Niam said...

I don’t know about Best, since that’s so subjective. But for iconic, I’m going with...

50s: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
60s: Sound of Music
70s: Grease
80s: Pretty in Pink
90s: Clueless
00s: Legally Blonde
10s: A little early for “iconic” but Pitch Perfect gets a potential nod here

Moose said...

"Stella Dallas", with Barbra Stanwyck. Perfection.

Amy C Wright said...

Agree with @NoNotThatBeth: "9 to 5"! :) A lifetime or two ago I had a friend whose go-to karaoke song was "9 to 5" and it was awesome.

SayWhaa said...

A movie I have been referencing for the last couple of weeks...

Death Becomes Her

Sharper Teeth said...

Hope Floats and While You Were Sleeping

I unintentionally like Sandy B.

T.W. I love love love Somewhere in Time

zerooptions said...

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring

soleJahway said...

YES!

Sara, Making It Work said...

Fairuza Balk & Ione Skye (her mention in the other blind made me think of it) as trailer park teen sisters.
One in love with a gay guy, the other with a slut rep that she can't shake.
And their divorced mom just trying to keep it together.
Original music by J Mascis, for the indie cred.

Pretty much nobody's ever heard of it, unless they were Sassy magazine readers back in the day.

TVAnnie said...

"The Women" from 1939. Smart dialog, great wardrobe and fabulous acting. No need to look further.

Amy C Wright said...

@Geeljire HAAAAAA! That is pretty twisted. I like.

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

It was on HBO daytime rotation around 1994. My second sophomore year of college. I watched it a few times. It breathes, you know? The story takes its time. There’s emotional truth from the actors. It’s a fine flick.

Jean Grey said...

@lakelady One of my favorites! Definitely a chick flick

Twice Upon a Time with Molly Ringwald. Never made it to dvd. I'd love to have even a VHS copy of it, because whichever company owns it has sure done its best to make sure that it no longer sees the light of day!

Brayson87 said...

Dirty Dancing, it's great but not something guys would watch on their own.

Irish Dre said...

All the Above :)

Sagan said...

Little Darlings.

What's not to love? Girls at summer camp, one rich/one poor; steal the camp school bus to go get rubbers at a gas station and run into a hot and hunky Matt Dillon...

And, "Imitation of Life" (the Lana Turner/Sandra Dee remake)

Alexandria said...

Reservoir Dogs 😛

canroadrunner said...

Boys on the Side. I crack up everytime over that scene where they write the message in Spanish to tell Drew Barrymore her boyfriend is dead and she says "i don't know any morty"

Scorpiotina said...

Crossing Delancey.(1988) Amy Irving and Peter Riegert

WickedBee said...

Steel Magnolias

A Woman Scorned (Betty Broderrick)

Imitation of Life, with Lana, and one of the few remakes I think is better than the original.

A lot of great movies listed, but how am I the first to post Say Anything?!
Also agree with 9 to 5 and Romy and Michelle. For Old Hollywood, I always love a good Esther Williams musical.
