February Movies

This month has been an influx of romantic comedies- my favourite kind. Simple, light and funny, they just makes me feel so happy after watching them! Who needs complex, thought provoking plots when reality is already complicated enough? This month, the especially worth seeing ones are Because I Said So and Music & Lyrics.

Because I Said So
Featuring Daphne Wilder, the mother of three girls, it talks about how she goes about finding the perfect guy for her youngest daughter Milly- without her knowing! Nothing turns out as planned however, but after much drama, everyone of course ends up with a happy ending. It is hilarious, sweet and touching- especially the mother and daughter relationship between Daphne and Milly. Doesn't Mandy Moore's hair look fabulous here?
Not only is Diane Keaton an amazing actress, but she's also very stylish too- especially for a 60 year old. Throughout the movie, I couldn't help but admire her ladylike, cinched at the waist, perfectly matched outfits and fabulous heels. She even carried off the polka dots dresses (she was obsessed with them- even her wedding dress was polka dots!) with class and style.
Lauren Graham played one of the daughters, Maggie, who is a psychiatrist. But after so many years, its just hard to see her as anythign else but Lorelei!
I also loved how each girl's personality is so perfectly reflected by their outfits. Daphne is classy and ladylike, Milly is fun and quirky, Maggie is professional and ladylike and Mae is pretty and flirty (from left to right).

Music and Lyrics

Music and Lyrics was also an awesome movie. Sweet, romantic and absolutely hilarious, it was perfect for its Valentine's Day premier. Alex Fletcher, a 80's has been pop singer, needs to make his come back by writing a hit song for Cora Corman, the reigning diva of the music industry. He enlists the aid of his plant water-er, Sophie Fisher to help him write the lyrics for his music.

Along the way, they (of course) fall in love. But because of Alex's unwillingness to stand up against the popular opinion, they fight and fall apart. In the end, Alex realizes that he cannot live without her and does a big thing to win her back in the last scene (in which she was wearing this black silk top that was really really pretty!).

It was wonderfully sweet and Hugh Grant was just hilarious- especially with the hip popping! And who knew he had such a decent voice? Although I thought Cora was really strange, with the whole sexual/religion theme going on and everything. Her make-up in the performance was also unusually natural. I also absolutely LOVED the songs in this movie. They were all very catchy and fun. Definitely check out their soundtrack!

So if you haven't already done so, you must all go see these two movies this weekend!

I watched the Music and Lyrics media premiere back in January and utterly loved it too. The songs maybe pop-ish, but they were sooo catchy. And Hugh's British humor is just charming.

i actually saw music and lyrics last night! surprisngly funny, and definately a sweet and charming film!

i think the whole cora character was a spoof on hollywood celebrities and their contradictions (eg: the way they flaunt themselves sexually, yet they pride themselves on religions like kabbalah or scientology!)

now im looking forward to seeing because i said so :)

Because I Said So looks soooo bad! Diane Keaton...wasn't the woman in Godfather for crying out loud? Sigh...love Mandy Moore though for some reason.

"Because I Said So" was an okay movie but it lacks the character development and appeal of "Something's Gotta Give". "Something's Gotta Give" was one of my favorite movies so I guess, it's tought to beat that.

"Who needs complex, thought provoking plots"

Okay, this comment makes you seem really stupid.

anon 1051: lol. i get most of my complex, thought provoking stimulation from literature and lectures. I see movies as a time to relax and just have fun, so I like them simple and light!

There are many celebrities wear Bentley GT such as comedian Dave Chapelle, “American Idol” TV host Simon Cowell, musician Miles Davis, and actors Tommy Lee Jones and John Lovitz. The rapper Ludacris goes for the Breitling Super Avenger etc wear Breitling Avenger . You can trust Bentley 6.75 . Since famous person are wearing Navitimer World , what are you waiting for?

Most scratches occur in the Plastic Buffer area; LONGSTREET THE COMPLETE are the ones you can fix. The reason your LONGSTREET THE COMPLETE DVD skips or doesn't play is because the laser eye cannot get a clear view at the foil data layer, the scratch interrupts its vision. If the scratch in your LONGSTREET THE COMPLETE DVD COLLECTION goes straight into the foil data layer then your disc is pretty much useless and you should consider getting a replacement.

Besides that, these Hogan all come along with an additional strap across the side of the Hogan scarpe uomo . This is to further enhance the outlook appearance as well as the design of the shoes and to make Hogan uomo more stand out among other types of shoes. Furthermore, these side straps are all printed with the words Hogan scarpe donna to portray the brand name and to prove the authentic of the shoes.
