10. As a performer, the newest rendition of Fame is one of my favorite films. Sure, I now have other plans for my future involving journalism, but I still sometimes dream about what would happen if I pursued the arts more forcefully. Of course, the movie is not just the glitter and glory of the stage. It shows the hardships and seemingly insurmountable moments of an artist's career.
9. One of the first real romantic comedies I watched as a kid was When in Rome starring Kristen Bell and Josh Duhmel. The quirky plot and hilarious moments throughout the movie made me fall in love with the film. Between the scenes that Bell filmed with her fiance (now husband) and Josh Duhmel's undeniable charm, the movie is one to remember. In fact, I think I watched it at least once a week in middle school.
8. Who can resist a movie containing Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and a ridiculous amount of hilarious jokes? If you're like me and wish you were watching a movie like this right now, you're probably a fan of 21 Jump Street. Two off-beat cops, who really should not by any means be cops, are sent undercover in a high school. I think I quote the film too much for what is considered healthy. Complete the cast with the one and only Ice Cube, and you have the perfect comedy.
7. Date Night with the beautifully hilarious Tina Fey and the awkwardly funny Steve Carell is not a movie to miss. We all know that there may be that bump in a marriage after kids when you think to yourself "Maybe the spark is gone," and sadly, the characters that Fey and Carell play have that moment. So, Carell suggests a date night without a reservation, and when the couple takes someone else's reservation, trouble comes. But, the spark is back.
6. Okay, okay, the High School Musical series is literally one of the best things to happen in my childhood, and the third installment is my favorite. I will throw out right now that I cry every time I watch it because it's so beautiful. The producers definitely kept their heads in the game while creating this movie. Ac Efron and Vanessa Hudgins were so electric in the movie, and I'm still pretty upset that they broke up.
5. Early this school year, I saw If I Stay with one of my best friends. Though I cried like a baby through the bulk of it, I couldn't help but think that I was watching a new classic. The leading lady, Chloe Grace Moretz, is such an amazing artist, and I'm going to mention here that she's also adorable. But, not just because of her, the movie was the perfect balance of tragedy and inspiration. When I left the theater, I was inspired to live my life to the fullest.
4. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler made magic onscreen (as they always do) in 50 First Dates. Complete with aquatic animals and Beach Boys music, this film made me "awww" and laugh out loud. Memory loss and unconditional love filled my screen as I watched the movie for the first time, and I was honestly enchanted by what I saw. There was a ton of comedic and acting talent in the film, and man, I think I want to watch it now.
3. I already mentioned the first movie, but this one is too good not to be in my countdown as well. Sequel to 21 Jump Street, the oh-so cleverly named 22 Jump Street made me laugh harder than I'm willing to admit. I personally think that this sequel was way funnier than the first movie, and I will admit that I saw it twice in theaters. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are literally soul mates... sorry Jenna, but I think your husband found a new love.
2. Though this film took a lot of heat for not being completely parallel to the book (which is sadly true), I loved watching it. I thought the acting was literally impeccable, and I'm a huge fan of both Theo James and Shailenne Woodley now. I thought their chemistry was undeniably wonderful, and the other cast members were also on point. The scenes were dynamic and interesting, and honestly, if you hadn't read the book, you would just automatically love the film.
1. The Heat with my girls Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy is my favorite movie hands down. There are so many iconic scenes in the film, and I have a ton of quotes ready in my back pocket. Bullock and McCarthy have awesome chemistry on screen, and you can tell that they just really get each other. The actual plot was fun to watch, and there was always an unexpected funny moment in the midst of what should technically be a serious scene.
