The Sweetest Thing Movie Quotes

[Courtney, a divorce lawyer, describing her day]
Courtney: Oh, you know, the usual. Defending the rights of my broken hearted clients and try to squeeze every single penny out of their miserable cheating spouses.

Courtney: Fifty percent of what people say when they are joking is true, which means, you do wanna go to this wedding but you are too afraid to admit it. So, by making some sort of joke about it, you get to say what you really want without being vulnerable.

[while holding her breasts]
Christina: You know when I was 22, my breasts were up here, nice and perky, but gravity has taken them. It’s like 22, 28, 22, 28, 22…
Courtney: Buy some new ones!

Peter: Here’s to fifty years with the same woman.
Roger: Dude, that’s just depressing. She’ll have saggy tits by then. She could tie ’em around her waist by then and use ’em as a belt… Or just tuck ’em in her socks.

I just saw this movie again on DVD and it is sooooooooo funny.

My favorite scenes include:

1) Selma’s dude’s ring stuck in her mouth and ‘too big to fit in here’ song that fixed the problem (Only on unrated version of DVD)

2) Selma taking the stained dress to the drycleaner and meeting her parents church friends

3) Cameron dropping the lipstick in front of Christina and her attempt to recover it while the gang biker watches. Christina is driving and plays along
4) Christina and Cameron in the men’s restroom and Christina reading the poem off the wall

5) The romantic ending with Christina and Peter (Those Cameron eyes….sigh)

Mona Lisa Smile Movie Review (5.5/10)

This movies takes place in the early 50’s, as a new Art History teacher, Katherine Preston, played by Julia Roberts, arrives to Wellesley College, a most prestigious yet conservative, all girl, American institution. The liberal, progressive teacher challenges her students and encourages them to become ‘tomorrow’s leaders, not their wives.’ Naturally, she must face many obstacles before winning the hearts of her students and changing their lives.


The movie plot is very unoriginal and without any surprises. It is full of clichés and stereotypes that are mixed with a few fancy words and high budget actresses to produce a movie whose advertisement highlights the most interesting lines.

Personal Poetry: THE LETTER

(This poem is about an image of a letter you’d leave in the crib to explain the political world to a child)
To my child not yet born,
I hope forever you will stay warm.
I will tell you all that I’ve learned
In 22 years,
For maybe, it will save you some tears;
The flag is dripped in blood
So away from it we fled.
We drank for peace,
And drowned in beliefs that darkened our deeds.
