Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I will admit that I like chick flicks.
Strike that. I ADORE chick flicks.
They’re light, fluffy, and predictable and I love them.
It is a must see for all chick-flick lovers out there! I have seen it many, many times and I love it more each time.
I think it would be best to explain the following photos with some of my favorite movie quotes.
So follow along with me:
Shopgirl: Once I read a story about a butterfly in the subway, and today, I saw one! It got on at 42nd and off at 59th, where, I assume, it was going to Bloomingdales to buy a hat that will turn out to be a mistake, as almost all hats are.
NY152: Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.
Note: You’ve Got Mail was based on another fabulous movie, “Shop Around the Corner” with Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, which took place in Budapest, Hungary. So, although you can’t see it here, those little envelopes are made out to addresses in Budapest. My little homage to the original movie.
Joe Fox: The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee… So people who don’t know what the hell they’re doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino.
Kevin: You know what? She looks… I mean, she almost has the same coloring as… that Kathleen Kelly Person.
Joe Fox: Kathleen Kelly with the little bookstore?
Kevin: Well, why not? You said you thought she was attractive.
Joe Fox: Absolutely, yes, why not. Who cares about Kathleen Kelly?
Kevin: Well… if you don’t like Kathleen Kelly, I can tell you right now… you ain’t gonna like this girl.
Joe Fox: Why not?
Kevin: Because it *is* Kathleen Kelly.
Joe Fox: The Godfather is the I-ching.
