I L-O-V-E this film and was delighted when I heard via Twitter (thank you Tweethearts) that it was on TV, such a treat and such a classic romantic film. I can’t believe it was first released in 1990, seems like yesterday to me, I can even remember the first time I saw it – an old-school-style video rental from Blockbuster because I was single at the time, didn’t fancy a trip to the cinema on my own after all my friends had seen it WITH THEIR BOYFRIENDS, sob! Yes, I was that girl, the ‘Bridget Jones alone’ convinced I’d die a lonely death in a puddle of cat pee…. anyway, I digress. SO, I’ll get to the point of this post, the classic one-liners and most memorable moments!
First up is ‘slippery little suckers’, I just love the look on Julia’s face as she flings the snail across the restaurant. Oops!
Next up is ‘Rodeo Drive baby.’ Such an uplifting scene as she struts along the boardwalk looking gorge – this is a ‘fuck y’all’ moment, if ever there was one…
And on to the most iconic line of all… ‘Big mistake. HUGE.’ I even managed to slip this cracking line into Cupcakes At Carrington’s, James says it just before he and Georgie whizz upstairs to the Personal Shopping suite to schmooze Russian billionaire, Malikov.
And if that wasn’t enough, here’s the official trailer. Enjoy!
