Hey y'all. I'm hosting the *fabulous* Jes from Jesgettingstarted on here for this month's bad movie review, which is totally like winning the lotto. Once again, as always, thankyou Nugs for hosting this shindig - you're made of the same stuff ninja unicorns are made of. Incidentally, my review will be posted on Nug's blog (HOW THE FUCK DID I GET SO LUCKY? WOOT). Anyways, here's Jes with the review. Hey y’all this is Jes and I write a little blog called Jes Getting Started, well that blog and a couple of others. What can I say; I have a horrible time keeping to just one thing. I love Nyx to death because she is super hot and she lives so close we are basically neighbors and I totally peep in her windows so I am super excited to be invading her space. For another shitty movie review make sure you check out my blog to read TJ’s review of an actual shitty Nicolas Cage movie. So this is my first time doing the horrible movie review ring. What is the actual title of this ring anyway? How bad of me for not even knowing. For shame, for shame. This month’s theme was Nicolas Cage movies, and I kind of cheated a bit because I actually love my movie. And even own it on DVD no less. Just not the Nicolas Cage part of it.
Peggy Sue Got Married stars the amazing Kathleen Turner, who I have seen naked in real life, as a middle aged, divorced mother who faints after being crowned reunion queen. When she wakes up she has been magically transported back to her high school days and gets to relive the last few months of her senior year, where she can decide to relive it the same way or you know create havoc and have a better life. Nicolas Cage stars as her boyfriend/ex-husband. First off this movie was made in 1986 when Kathleen was 32 and Nicolas Cage was 22 so there is a little bit of an age difference there to both be playing 17-18 and then the 30-40 or how ever old they are supposed to be at the reunion. So this means ridiculous amounts of make up on Nick Cage to make him seem old and washed up. This was also the point in his life where he talked with that horrible, scratchy, pitchy falsetto voice. Oh and did I mention he sings? But oh I am forgetting the best part, Jim Carey is in it as one of his best friends/boy band members and he sings as well. The movie asks the question that many of us face about if we could relive a moment in time would we? For Peggy Sue not only does she relive it but she does everything possible to change it, even “inventing” things from the future, like panty hose. And no way does she want to get married, even though this time around three different guys propose to her. In the end Peggy Sue wakes up and realizes it all was a dream, or was it? Although Nick Cage is super annoying and super whiny and you really wish she would end up with someone else. It is a decent movie and there are tons of other parts that actually make it kind of endearing. There are lots of other familiar faces like Helen Hunt who plays their daughter, Sophia Coppola as Peggy Sue’s sister, and Catherine Hicks aka the mom from 7 Heaven, as Peggy Sue’s best friend. Next month I should probably do a movie that actually sucks.
