On Your Screen Link-Up: My Favourite Movie(s).

Finally, I've got my a into g and done a link-up!

This week is all about my all time favourite movie. Or movies. Because I watch a lot. I've had to think long and hard about this one, and I think I've finally found two that I could watch over and over again and never grow tired of. 

Drum roll please...........

1 = Anchorman!

I've watched this movie so many times, I've actually lost count. I'll probably watch it again after finishing this post. If you haven't seen Anchorman (insert shocked face here), it is the story of news anchor Ron Burgundy, who along with his news team, are the most popular news team in San Diego. Until, a woman named Veronica arrives on the scene, and becomes co-anchor. This shakes up Ron's world, and he must suddenly adjust to sharing the limelight with a woman. Many hi jinks ensue, including hilarious attempts from Ron and the boys to get her to quit.

The cast of this movie is excellent. It's comprised of many familiar faces of the comedy world, and features cameos from other well known comic actors. Steve Carrell is hilarious as super-dumb weatherman Brick Tamland, and I love anything with Paul Rudd involved. Seriously, go watch it right now if you haven't seen it.

I'm so excited for the sequel!

2 = Mean Girls!

This movie is excellent. I don't even know how to describe how good it is. It's written by Tina Fey, who is super funny, so this pretty much explains it. It stars Lindsay Lohan when she was still a good actress and wasn't crazy. It was the movie that made Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried well-known. It has the best quotes. I can have conversations with my flatmates using only mean girls quotes - that's how many time I've seen it. 

Anyway, here's a quick synopsis, even though I'm 99.99% sure everyone has seen this movie.

Cady (Lindsay Lohan) has spent most of her life being home schooled in Africa. She moves back to America and must learn to adapt to the rules of high school. She makes friends with two outcasts, who devise a plan to ruin the life of the most popular girl in school - Regina George (Rachel McAdams). Cady becomes friends with Regina and her group in order to execute their plan, but she starts to see that the girl world is pretty brutal and starts becoming someone that she doesn't really want to be.

Give it a watch, or re-watch it. It will improve your day.

I leave you now with a short clip from Anchorman, just after Ron has lost his beloved dog Baxter.


  1. love mean girls, lol that was back when lindsay was still classy

  2. I never saw Anchorman (not a big Will Ferrell fan), but Mean Girls is great. Any movie with Tina Fey is great, actually. She's funny as heck.
