all about the 90s challenge: Day 18 – Favorite movie?

There are a few 90s movies that I love, so I'm picking three.

Notting Hill. I love this movie. I love the bad dates Hugh Grant gets set up on at the beginning of the movie, when the girl says she's a fruitarian. 

Keziah: No thanks, I'm a fruitarian. 
Max: I didn't realize that. 
William: And, ahm: what exactly is a fruitarian? 
Keziah: We believe that fruits and vegetables have feeling so we think cooking is cruel. We only eat things that have actually fallen off a tree or bush – that are, in fact, dead already. 
William: Right. Right. Interesting stuff. So, these carrots… 
Keziah: Have been murdered, yes. 
William: Murdered? Poor carrots. How beastly! 


Here is the part that makes me cry, every time.


You've Got Mail. Yes, it's a little corny. No, I don't care. I still love it. You've Got Mail is based on The Shop Around the Corner, a 1940 Jimmy Stewart film (also a wonderful movie). There are Pride and Prejudice influences all over the movie, which I also love. Plus, it's super 90s with the dial-up internet sound and the familiar "you've got mail" from AOL. It's sweet. It's a sweet movie. Sometimes that what you need.


The Big Lebowski. And sometimes you need a little not sweet. If you haven't seen The Big Lebowski, I don't know what's wrong with you or how you've ignored this masterpiece, but you need to see it. I can't help but love this movie, because dude, I was pretty much raised in a bowling alley and the White Russian is my favorite drink.

The whole movie is my favorite scene. I'm narrowing down it down to one I love. "Obviously, you're not a golfer."
