This is a MOVIE. What a thrill. Hitchcockian in all the ways De Palma wanted it to be and more. This is only my second film I’ve seen of De Palma’s— the first being Mission: Impossible (1996). But I know from various documentaries how much of an influence Hitch was on him. The obvious references aside, De Palma pays great homage to Hitch’s action-adventure thrillers like Foreign Correspondent (1940). And this might just be my favorite Travolta performance.
I went to the NYC premiere. Emma Stone was right in front of me and we made eye contact— as I wore the piano tie Ryan Gosling wears in La La Land. After the film I talked to Brendan Fraser, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Swift— they were all incredibly lovely. So yeah, automatic 10/10.
I’m in this one! Always a joy to see myself on the big screen. Had the pleasure of attending the premiere and the afterparty (shoutout to Jaquel Spivey for hanging out with us BG for like the whole party) and it was a total blast. Wanna know what else was a blast? THIS MOVIE.
I’ll admit, I hadn’t seen the original Mean Girls (2004) until after I started to work on the movie musical (2024). But as soon as the first…
