Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
13 Going On 30
For some, 13 feels like it was just yesterday. For Jenna, it was.
After total humiliation at her thirteenth birthday party, Jenna Rink wants to just hide until she's thirty. With a little magic, her wish is granted, but it turns out that being thirty isn't as always as awesome as she thought it would be!
I am a guy. A bloke, chap, lad, dad, testosterone driven being.
I argue when I'm right, argue fiercer when I'm wrong and am never discouraged by the fact that I'm wrong 95% of the time.
I love football, beer, loud music, making fire and stuff that goes boom.
I am getting less hair where I want more and getting more hair where I want less. My testosterone makes me overcompensate by working out too much and acting like a juvenile git.
I am a guy.
And I unequivocally love this film and will defend it to death because I am right.
Review In A Nutshell:
Everyone has those set of films that they have encountered in their youth that stick with them in a positive light even after one has grown so much in emotional and physical maturity. 13 Going on 30, better titled in Australia as Suddenly 30, was a film that I encountered nearly on a daily basis during my days in primary school as my young sister was mesmerized by it, finding an amazing role model to cling onto, hoping that when she becomes older she would also find success in the realm of fashion and still retain that sense of innocence and virtue. I latched onto these films for different reasons; I found myself heavily attracted to…
The Hulk and Gollum dance to Thriller together, need I say more?
living with a scruffy mark ruffalo in a greenwich apartment is such a dream it hurt to see some plain b*tch living it
mark ruffalo's greatest performance
A fun, funny guilty pleasure. An unoriginal plot (think the female version of Big) made enjoyable by a surprisingly charming Jennifer Garner who gives a surprisingly good performance. Her best in my opinion. Nice cast that includes Judy Greer and, oddly enough, Andy Serkis. Believe it or not, this was my first introduction to Mark Ruffalo and I've been a fan of the guy ever since. Loved the Thriller dance sequence. Great soundtrack. Touching and often hilarious.
Damn good performances.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
1- DIMPLES !!!
2- mark ruffalo !!!
3- the thriller sequence cured my depression
4- rip jennifer garner's wasted comedic potential
could watch it over and over again
I'd say this is a guilty pleasure but guilt is one thing I never feel watching this movie. It's charming, adorable and full of memorable characters.
Yeah it's a by-the-numbers romantic movie, but by god when you wanna scratch that itch there are few that land it better. Maybe it's the Freaky Friday-esque premise mixed with Jennifer Garner's pitch-perfect wide-eyed little girl who wishes to be "Thirty, flirty and thriving" that makes it sing, but Judy Greer, Andy Serkis and the adorable Mark Ruffalo are also just fantastic.
Anyways, it's great. Everyone's got that one silly rom-com that actually works for them and this one is mine.
Truly iconic made child me want to be a big time bad ass magazine editor running around New York in a silk nighty
I mean this is just such a sweet and innocent movie. It doesn't require the degrading american humour to be funny. And though it is cheesy you cannot help but love this movie. It's so pure.
The characters are well written and Jennifer Garner did amazing job pretending to be a 13 year old. The only person who might not have been the right man for the job is Andy Serkis who I feel just wasn't the right fit. But that's just you know nitpicking. Because this movie is actually really charming and highly enjoyable. I mean what's there not to love?
such a cute movie. how could you not like it? the only thing that makes me question it is the fact that she falls in love with mark ruffalo :/
One day I will write the BFI Film Classics monograph for this film. There will be an entire chapter on Judy Greer.
Watch for the soundtrack alone!
