I'm in need of a good summer movie

With graduation approaching fast, and me being bored out of my mind with nothing to do (should I be studying for my last final? nah, not yet)...I've been craving a feel-good summery type movie.

Like Stand by Me, or Now and Then, or Heavyweights.

Yes, Heavyweights. Great movie. I used to have a "thing" for chubby boys.

I'm not even joking. I thought they were so cute, and most of the chubby boys I knew were funny. Hello!!! Two-for-two!

My mom was worried that I was going to bring home a man with high cholesterol and on the brink of a heart attack. I haven't yet :)

So here's some of my favorite clips from these movies. Enjoy!

Stand by Me

Now and Then



  1. OMG!! I love Heavyweights! That brings back so many memories :) One of Ben Stiller's greatest roles, for sure lol

  2. Holy crow, I was actually thinkin Stand By Me when I clicked on your link! Crazy...that is probaby my favorite movie of all time. I just love it the way River Phoenix says Vern's name. Veerrrn...cracks me up every time. :D

  3. Heavyweights is still one of my all time favorite. I actually did bring home some chubbsters that I called boyfriends. I think it was a phase. hahaha

  4. Now and Then was my movie back in the day. Luckily for me, I no longer have to contemplate what flavor of pudding to fill the balloon with to stuff my bra with!

  5. I love all of those movies! I used to watch Stand By Me on a weekly basis. River Phoenix, so sad.

    And Now and Then is such a great summer movie. What ever happened to Devon Sawa? He was such a heartthrob back in the day!

  6. Mother Earth, Father Sky, and your dear old Uncle Tony. That was an awesome movie.

  7. Just quick off the top of my head-when I think of summer movies I think of Bridges of Madison County,and My Girl-- but I love Stand By Me and Now and Then also.
    Give me more time, and I can come up with more, but I need to get some projects done in preparation for your graduation Kinsey girl:)
    Love you, YFM

  8. I never saw Heavyweights (must rent it), but I loved Now and Then and Stand By Me.

  9. I've always been a huge Goonies fan.

  10. If you're still looking for another great movie, The Blind Side was awesome! I cried through the entire second half, but they were happy tears! lol
