It’s thursday, and yet another celebrity throwback thursday, and this week we caught up with Toolz and she shared with us the movies she absolutely loved when she was still a youngn.
She certainly loved the girly movies for sure.
Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey has a movie that every young girl absolutely loved in 80s and actually till date. If you were a guy and had a sister you would’ve understood how this was such a big deal.
Dirty Dancing is a 1987 American romance film. Written by Eleanor Bergstein and directed by Emile Ardolino, the film stars Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in the lead roles, as well as Cynthia Rhodes and Jerry Orbach. The story is a coming of age drama that documents a teenage girl’s coming of age through a relationship with a dance instructor whom she encounters during her family’s summer vacation.
Pretty Woman brought Julia Roberts to the big leagues, and this movie (just like Dirty Dancing) was a favorite for a lot of young women back in the day, even though it probably shouldn’t have lol. Richard Gere and Julia Roberts definitely made it look like they were made for each other on screen.
Pretty Woman is a 1990 American romantic comedy film set in Los Angeles. Written by J.F. Lawton and directed by Garry Marshall, the film stars Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, and features Hector Elizondo, Ralph Bellamy (in his final performance), and Jason Alexander in supporting roles. The story of Pretty Woman centers on the down-on-her-luck Hollywood prostitute Vivian Ward who is hired by a wealthy businessman, Edward Lewis, to be his escort for several business and social functions, and their developing relationship over the course of Vivian’s week-long stay with him.
This one is the least girly of the bunch but it’s still a pretty mushy movie. Sanaa Lathan and Taye Diggs go through an unconventional means of getting together after years of BFFism. Classic BFF turns lover, which is why you should be scared of the BFF… Just kidding. Great movie though, and it should be in everyone’s movie collection.
Brown Sugar is a 2002 American romance film written by Michael Elliott and Rick Famuyiwa, directed by Famuyiwa, and starring Taye Diggs and Sanaa Lathan. The film is a story of a lifelong friends, A&R Andre and Editor in Chief Sidney. The two can attribute their friendship and the launch of their careers to a single, seminal childhood moment – the day they discovered hip-hop on a New York street corner. Now some 15 years later, as they lay down the tracks toward their futures, hip-hop isn’t the only thing that keeps them coming back to that moment on the corner.
That’s all folks. Hope this brought back some good memories. More especially for the ladies, and the guys who used these movies to get ladies to stay longer in the crib. 🙂
