Twenty years later and this movie still hits all the right notes. Sure, Paul Rudd hasn’t really settled into his beloved screen persona, but this is the movie that caused him to imprint on all women of a certain age, so we’ll let it slide.* We all talk on our cell phones now as much as Cher and Dionne did then, but thank goodness the nose jobs aren’t as prominent.
Cost: $2.75 from Videorama
Where watched: at home during the snow day. This double feature (with Bring it On) was brought to you by the interview with Nicole Bilderback on the “I Was There Too” podcast.
*Also, the age difference between Cher and Josh and the fact that they were once step-siblings is just the slightest big creepy. But we’ll overlook it because of the imprinting.

Oh, Paul Rudd! So bookish and deep to turn Cher from vapid to humanitarian! Step siblings don’t count, do they? Really? Even if he like didn’t really grow up together but we’re only related for a hot second?
This did imprint him upon me, but I think Overnight Delivery, with Reese Witherspoon, sealed the deal!
Eh. I think it was only a couple of years they were step-siblings, but still it’s kind of icky.
I just checked and my library doesn’t have Overnight Delivery. Darn.
Well, I guess that answers my last question, haha.
I love, love, love this movie! Even after all these years, I still find it hilarious. Also, it’s the only way I can watch the Emma story because I actually think the character of Emma is pretty insufferable, but as Cher, she’s so lovable.
One of my favorite scenes is where they accidentally get on the freeway. I laugh so hard at that scene it makes me cry.
I also laughed out loud at that part.
