Girl's Night In

Did you see my new ad on Craftster? Isn't it sassy? A big thanks to sweets4ever for helping me out. She rocks! In honor of Craftster and craftiness in general. I have a few movies for you to invite your girlfriends over, make a few cocktails (please see Tuesday for tasty ideas, hee hee) and get your craft on.

The first movie is one that is so dear to my heart. Valley Girl. Remember how cute Nicholas Cage was with his sculpted chest hair (don't judge, you know you loved it). Valley Girl was a new twist on Romeo and Juliet with Romeo aka Randy being the Hollywood punk rocker and Juliet aka Julie(big stretch there) hanging in the valley. True love will prevail in this 80's cult hit. True to my form, I have to mention- the music is AMAZING! The Plimsouls, Josie Cotton, Psychedelic Furs-how can you miss? It is a well known fact that girls can not resist anything related to the 80's so throw this one in the DVD player and you are guaranteed a totally rad craft night.

Have you seen the movie Singles? Another decade, another great movie. Cameron Crowe directed this (for the most part) true to life tale about dating in the 90's in Seattle. There are several different stories in this flick. Matt Dillon is hysterical in this movie. He plays a grunge stoner rocker that is completely clueless when it comes to love. Once again, a great soundtrack for the grunge age. If you look closely you can see great Seattle bands make tiny cameos here and there throughout the movie. I think it should be required that you have to wear a flannel shirt and skull cap when viewing.

The last movie for Girl Craft night is Chocolat. This film covers all your needs, chocolate and Johnny Depp. Did I mention CHOCOLATE AND JOHNNY DEPP?! The story is a sweet tale of love not just between Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp but love within the entire town. It is a wonderful "feel good" movie. The scenery is simple and beautiful. I love the underlying theme of acceptance, family and self respect. It's kind of a tear jerker, so make sure you have a box of tissues for your girlfriends.

So there you have it, three films, ready to roll. All you need to do is call up your girlfriends, mix up some yummy cocktails, and have them stroll over with crafts in hand. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll make some kick ass stuff.

I was just telling Katelyn about "Valley Girl" - excellent choice! "Singles" is also a winner!

Great flicks! I love them all but especially Singles! I love Bridget Fonda in that movie expecially the boob implant scene with Bill Pullman!!

Never seen "Singles", but "Valley Girl" is a hoot and "Chocolat" is mine and the DH's 'date movie' for when the kids are out of the house!
