With Turkey Day approaching, we feel it’s time to reflect on
the things we are most thankful for. While our list has plenty of meaningful
items like friends and family, we can’t help but add some slightly sillier things…like
being thankful for NOT living in the world of some of our fave movies! Read on
to see which flicks we’re talking about.
Doesn’t the title say enough?! The overall message that
girls can get over their cliques and all get along is great, but we would have
hated to live through what Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) had to put up with. From
backstabbing buds to downright BF stealing, we’re plenty thankful we don’t go
to Northshore High where Regina George (Rachel McAdams) and the Pinks prowl.
While we worship this amazing series, we will admit that
having vampires thirst after your blood while fighting over you with a pack of
werewolves hardly sounds like our idea of fun. Plus, how in the heck are we
supposed to choose between Edward and Jacob? We’ll leave that whole situation
to Bella and gladly take a seat in the theater to watch rather than
13 Going On 30
It would be so cool to glimpse into our future lives…but
really, that’s something that shouldn’t be messed with. Plus, isn’t life all
about surprises? In this movie, Jenna (Jennifer Gardner) ends up benefiting
from going into the future. She’s able to turn her life around and find the
right guy. But in real life, we think it’s much better to just live every day
as it comes.
She’s The Man
This flick made the list because we just have to acknowledge
how tough it would be to be roomies with the gorgeous Channing Tatum while
trying to keep up the charade that you’re a guy! Not only that, but you’d also
have to deal with girls having crushes on you because they think you’re a GUY.
The Devil Wears Prada
Here at GL, we can respect a good movie about the life of
working for a magazine…but we’re beyond glad working at GL is nothing like this
movie! No matter how hard Andrea Sachs (Anne Hathaway) tries, her evil boss
finds a way to make her feel terrible either about herself or her choices.
Whew, thankfully we’ve got Karen and not Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep).
Just My Luck
Ashley Albright (Lindsay Lohan) may be the luckiest lady in
Manhattan at the start of this flick, but boy, do things change. After she
kisses not-so-lucky Jake Hardin (Chris Pine) at a party, her life is turned
upside down. Eventually, the unlikely pair work things out…but it would be no
fun to go from riches to rags in two seconds.
