Movie Monday

So today, I thought I would blog about a movie I caught on TV one night last week when I couldn's sleep. It was about two in the morning and I was flipping channels when a blast form the past hit me right between my sleep deprived eyes. Dirty Dancing was on and I ended up staying up until four to watch the whole movie.

Dirty Dancing came out when I was in junior high and future romance-writer that I was, I fell instantly in love with it. I mean, come on, what's not to like? Good girl falls for bad boy, bad boy breaks her heart, good girl gets bad boy in the end. Yum-my! It follows a very similar pattern to my all-time favorite movie, Grease (yes, I know, I'm a nerd) as well as my books-- Full Exposure and Tie Me Down especially-- and, of course, my life as well. Yep, I fell for a very hot, very sexy, very bad boy when I was 21-- and ended up marrying him a few months after we met. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a bad boy and a happy ending ;)

How about you? What kind of movies do you like? Or, barring that, one kind of men do you like? Bad boys or choir boys or somewhere in between? Don't forget to check back later this week for the rules for my Tie Me Down Contest Extravaganza that starts Thursday and runs through next Monday.

Happy Monday :)


  1. I am a sucker for chick flicks. I will watch the following no matter how many times they're on: You've Got Mail, Ever After (mad crush on Dougray Scott), In Her Shoes (I know that e e cummings poem off by heart now), While You were Sleeping & I still love legally Blonde.

  2. I like chick flicks/romantic comedies. Dirty Dancing is a favorite. I also liked Sleepless in Seattle, While You Were Sleeping, You've Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally, Never Been Kissed, and Ever After. I saw The Proposal this summer, and I really enjoyed it.
