Saturday was a great day and night for movies. It was crummy weather here in NY all day - grey, cloudy, rainy, and I think the temperature even dipped to the 40s (what the hell happened to Spring?)
My friend Scooby Doo Velma came over and we had a cable movie marathon. We went through five – count 'em – five!! movies, through the course of the proceedings.
Multiple movies along with pizza, red wine, beer, Jack & Cokes (me) and screwdrivers (her). Sure, totally derelict, but fun.
We watched “Man on Fire,” “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country,” “Crash,” “Suspect Zero” and “Working Girl.”
Well, ok, let me clarify - I started to watch Working Girl. (I think I've actually started to watch it in the past, too, and have never quite made it all the way through).
I dozed off when Melanie Griffith still had big poofy Staten Island hair and racoon eyes, and woke up toward the end when she was more stylish. One of these days, I will see this film from beginning to end. I hear it's not bad.
In my defense: A) it is a major chick flick, and B) by the time it came on it was about 2 am, and, at this point, I had consumed, well, wine, beer, and bourbon. Velma, on the other hand, has amazingly feral tolerance.
She also has a habit of commenting on scenes, talking to the characters, and tearing up at emotional moments (a total wreck during parts of “Man on Fire”). As I tell her, if I wanted the commentary track, I would get the DVD, but she never listens to me.

I have to give my own props to "Working Girl." Regardless of being a chick myself, I am not a big fan of chick flicks, but this one was fairly entertaining overall. It may be worth your time to watch it sans beer, wine, and burbon--or, at least watch it first in your movie marathon rather than last at 2am.
I agree with Siskenyon - Working Girl is a great movie, lots of funny scenes, but it also shows the way some assistants are treated like second class peons by people who aren't really any better than them, but maybe they dress or talk better. And Harrison Ford is adorable in it. :)
I loved "Man on Fire" and "Working Girl" too! But I never heard of "Suspect Zero?" I want to see "Crash."
"Star Trek" - guy flick! lol
Crash was ok, but I dont think it was best picture of the year. The Oscars screw up sometimes.
hehe no wonder you fell asleep with all that drinking!! I would be out after just the red wine.
The funniest scene in Working Girl is when Harrison Ford comes to see Melanie at the office and Joan Cusack shows him in and starts asking him - Can I get you anything, coffee, tea, me? And making funny faces behind his back. So cute.
