Girls Just Wanna be Wooed!

I watched Easy A this past week. I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I think it's a movie I will actually buy. And I don't buy a lot of movies unless they're for my kids. I AM a rom-com junkie, though! It's my guilty pleasure. Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock and now Emma Stone. I really enjoy Emma Stone! When she was in Superbad, I was thinking she was going to be one to watch. She has the timing and understated sauciness for these quirky yet strong female roles.

My favorite line from Easy A is about how a girl wants to be wooed...swept off her feet...approached by her knight...even if he's wrapped in tin foil rather than shining armor...and carried away on his white horse...

Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life.



I think Anna Scott (Julia Robert's character in Notting Hill) says it best, "After all... I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." Aren't we all!

Maybe writers who make up stories of the heart have created a premise which doesn't exist in reality, but I still believe that reality exists. I believe there are men out there who know how to love deeply and with all their heart. I still believe that there are women that are open to being loved like that and giving that man the respect he desires. I still believe in amazing kisses in the rain just like Noah and Allie in The Notebook...I still believe in men chasing after something they let go before they realized what they had (*hint*hint* if you wait too long, sometimes she really will be gone...moved on...in someone else's arms...) which is in more movies than I can tell you...And I still believe in happily ever after...
