Ok. If you didn’t already drag your sweet heart,  best friend, or cube mate to see Valentine’s Day on Sunday and you’re still planning on seeing it, then go away.  I’m going to ruin this entire movie for you.

You’ve been warned.

Ok, so you all know how much I love going to the movies in NYC. It’s pretty ridiculous. Valentine’s Day was totally sold out, and there was only one Fandango kiosk open for the 9,782 people who were waiting to print their tickets. Why didn’t you print your ticket at home, you ask? Well we did, but then somehow it managed to stay on the fridge, while we were getting off the subway at Herald Square. That’s an oops.

Got seats, albeit in the last row of the front “tilt your head back, recline and enjoy Bradley Cooper 30 feet high in front of your face” seats. totally not complaining by the way. It sounded like there was some serious chatterpants happening up top half way through, and I’m glad I wasn’t a part of that.

Previews. Want to know what happens when the Sex and the City 2 preview comes on in a movie theater on Valentine’s Day? It starts as low muffled noises, then sporadic shrieking, and then the air got sucked out of the room as every single girl in that theater gasped when they realized it was in fact THE SEQUEL TO SEX AND THE CITY! At that very same moment, every guy in that theater groaned in pain, and let their heads fall back on their chairs. Collectively. I was impressed.

Hey, I’m excited. I’ll admit it. I’m pretty excited. Although… what the hell are they doing in the desert… on camels. Really SATC? Really?

Anyway, on to the movie, directed by Pretty Woman, director Garry Marshall. Predictable. Sweet. Filled with super attractive men (and women) most notably Topher Grace, who is welcome in my life any day of the week, Mc Dreamy (Patrick Dempsey), who we all loved to hate in this one, McSteamy (Eric Dane), who is pretty darn wonderful in this, and FANTASTIC to look at, and of course Cooper. Love Bradley Cooper.

Now. I have to say it was better than I thought it was going to be.  The Jennifer Garner/Ashton Kutcher storyline was cute, as was the Jamie Foxx and Jessica Biel line. I think Jessica Alba’s annoying, but maybe that was the point here. Taylor Swift, girl plays a damn good crazy. Anne Hathaway and Shirley, super fantastic too.

Here’s what I want to know… does Taylor Swift always make out with boys while  her own music plays in the background?

Also, The best part of the whole movies was at the end of the movie. Julia freakin’ Roberts rocks my world.

The end…

Driver: Miss to your left is Rodeo Drive. Have you ever shopped there?

Julia: I think so, once in the 80’s. They weren’t very nice though. Big mistake. Huge.

That line kept me giggling for an hour after I left.

For that alone Garry Marshall, well done.

Oh I’m so excited. So I never read the book that this star-studded, hot ensemble movie is based on, but who cares? ( I sort of just decided what kind of idiot needs to read this book- I already know all of this…) bygones.

This cute little movie is loaded with stars and sub plots and probably at least one story line you’ve found yourself in over the years. Drew Barrymore, who produced the film, and has a small role is adorable and the movie is directed by Ken Kwapis who directed one of my most favorite children’s movies ever… Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird. (If you’ve never seen it, you are missing a very serious part of your childhood. Go rent it immediately.)

There’s beautiful Hollywood leading ladies (Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly,  ScarJo and Ginnifer Goodwin) and seriously adorable guys (Kevin Connolly- love him, Justin Long, Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck) and their all clueless.

In the movie Jen Aniston plays Beth, a woman ready and waiting for a ring, but whose boyfriend, played by Ben Affleck doesn’t really believe in the whole marriage thing. She also gets to play a bridesmaid, and who doesn’t love that RIGHT?! enter sarcasm.

Anyway, Brides.com has a feature article on Jen and her bridesmaid playing self that’s worth checking out. They also feature these DO’s and DONT’s for your bridesmaids from Shay Cunliffe, costume designer for He’s Just Not That Into You, which I’ve listed below for your reading pleasure. 

DON’T choose stiff silk and taffeta fabrics: They are very uncomfortable and do not lie well on the body. While shooting, the bridesmaid dress would become stretched out after Jennifer had worn it for only an hour. “It was actually a silly amount of work for such a simple dress,” says Shay.

DO look for dresses made from crepe or silk Charmeuse: They move beautifully on the body and will make your maids feel comfortable and beautiful in their dresses.

DON’T forget that your bridesmaids are probably on a budget: In a time when everyone’s budget has shrunk, try to choose dresses that your bridesmaid will be able to wear after the wedding.

DO select modern, simple dresses: Want to make your maids happy? You can’t go wrong with J. Crew bridesmaid dresses. “I’ve heard many times bridesmaids complaining to me, ‘Why oh why couldn’t they have let us get J. Crew bridesmaid dresses,'” Shay says. She also suggests looking at Nicole Miller for chic, affordable gowns.

DON’T let your maids make their own alterations: In the movie, Jennifer’s character makes a last minute change that raises the hem of her dress by several inches. In real life, Shay thinks that the bridesmaids should consider and consult with the bride before changing their dresses. “You want to participate in her version for the wedding,” she says. “I think it’s rude to disregard the sensibilities that your bride wants.”

DO choose a dress that’s flattering for everyone: “I would urge more brides to be more sensitive to the bodies and age group of their bridesmaids,” she says. “Brides need to take a minute and think when they want their bridesmaids to match and think that it might not work for everyone and be sensitive to that.”

Now… go indulge in some video trailers below, and understand how hilarious Justin Long, Bradley Cooper and Kevin Connolly are, and how much more you want to see this movie now. It’s so great.
