Movie Delight Monday

Yes sirree, it's that time again.  Monday.  Ugh.

Starting a new week, lugging along, just waiting for Wednesday - because we all know once you reach Hump Day the rest is easy peasy. 

In accordance to the previous declaration of a heretofore mentioned appointment of assigned days of blogging (you can be impressed, it's okay), today has been deemed


Just makes you feel all tingly inside, doesn't it?

So, today I present to you one of my favorite 90s movies:

Goldie Hawn, Meryl Streep and Bruce Willis star in this delightfully dark comedy about frenemies and the man they both loved. 

Helen Sharp is a smart, plain-Jane woman, who brings dorky fiance' Dr. Ernest Menville to meet her best friend Madeline Ashton, a blonde singer/actress.  Madeline woos Ernest away from Helen, and Helen turns into a fat,  icing-eating slob with dozens of cats.  Obsessed with revenge, Helen makes some changes...

Years later Madeline and Ernest, stuck in a loveless relationship, are reunited with the new-and-improved Helen. An affair, murder plots and hilarity ensue.

Bruce Willis is wonderfully dense as Dr. Menville, and Streep and Hawn are entertaining to say the least.  This film had great special effects for early 90s production, and director Robert Zemeckis did an excellent job.   

NOTE TO PARENTS:  There are boobies shown in this film, and adult humor throughout.


  1. Oh my goodness it's been years since I saw this! I remember... oh except I don't remember Bruce Willis... strange. Anyway, thanks for following but I don't think it worked, would you try again? Sorry to have to ask.

  2. The first few times I saw this movie I had no idea that was Bruce Willis. Then one day while watching it I had an "A-ha!" moment.

    Tried it again, and it worked that time! My Google Account has been spazzing lately. Dirty whore.

  3. I love this movie! It was actually on tv here a couple of weekends ago, rather in the middle of the night, but my boyfriend and I simply had to stay up and watch it! :)

    I'm home alone tonight and I'd planned a movie night for myself, but got sidetracked somehow... so I guess I'll have to make up for it tomorrow!

  4. I LOVE this movie. Time to see if it's on Netflix Watch Instantly... ;-)
