Ah, then there was Mallrats. Back when Kevin Smith was still funny, Shannen Doherty had a super cute shag hairdo, and motorcycle boots which I coveted with all of my super tough fourteen year old heart. Oooh, Jeremy London was in this one! The London brothers were so hot in the early-mid-nineties! And Joey Lauren Adams is in it also!
Now Mallrats captures that weird moment of 1994-1996 so well- those pictures that would turn 3D if you squinted at them, flannel, mini-florals, and the concept of mall rats in general. Do people still just hang out in malls?
Ah, then when it was time for something scary-
Wonder why Reese never discusses this movie when she talks about her early work? Maybe because she gets a hand up her skirt riding a roller coaster and trying to look orgasmic instead of uncomfortable since she's in public while a cover of Wild Horses plays? Or maybe it's the dog head (shudder) that comes through the doggie door when Marky Mark and his Funky Bunch attack the house. Unfortunately, Nicole gave him the code so he could swipe her v-card while her parents were out of town. Don't you think you would be able to stay awake waiting for such a momentous occasion? Such a great movie. Alyssa Milano, the best friend? Such a beee-yotch! Never liked her since Fear.
So what were your repeat horrible yet wonderful high school flicks? So many to choose from, but these were definitely my favorite.
