Presidents’ Weekend Marathon 16:Never Been Kissed

Sixteen movies in a little over three days. Five movies a day, give or take. Next time, I think I’ll try to break 20. Things I learned:

  1. If you’re going for volume, don’t spend a lot of time in the theatres. Theatre hopping increases wait time, and is a lot more exhausting than renting. Also, you can’t do laundry in a theatre.
  2. Don’t make the schedule too heavy. Every third movie or so should be a no-brainer.
  3. If you’re writing about the films, as I did, take a note or two during the film if possible. If a line or image strikes you, write it down–it will make the review a lot easier and more meaningful.
  4. Do something special for snacks, because everyone asks about them.

My final entry was that last no-brainer: Drew Barrymore’s Never Been Kissed. I was surprised–I think most of us, if we returned to highschool as adults, would use our adult confidence to an advantage. On the other hand, I also think most of us would suck at the acedemic portion. Personally, I remember squat from highschool. Drew’s character, Josie, needs help with her confidence, but seems to have a great memory for things that no longer matter in the least when you get out of school. Ah well, it’s not like I was expecting realism.

Kissed is a sweet flick. Michael Vartan is cute, cute, cute. Beyond that, who cares? It’s late, and pink clothes and goofy jokes are good.
