Unknowingly i watched two movies back to back that were so extremely similar?? haha

 -

 -
I've seen both of them before......I remember loving Griffith's character LULU and her kitschy style and how awesome the movie is cast.

So what i kept noticing:
1.Two strangers meet
2.Spend a whole crazy day together
3.Ex boyfriend chases them
4. couple gets separated
(spoiler)
5. Couple ends up tracking down each other

Weird eh? i chose these two random movies together?

Something Wild was directed by Johnathan Demme and score is done by David Byrnes.....(honestly seems a bit off sometimes for a score?) John Waters has a cameo........Ray Liotta is awesome!

Anyway just wanted to fill you in on my goofiness [Big Grin]

Muffy.. great observations. I started a thread about "Something Wild" awhile back. It is a trip of movie..

I'm not as big of a fan of "Blind Date" though..

Devo.. I'm not much of a Blake Edwards fan either.. The Pink Panther francise is only marginally good in my opinion. From there it might be "10" and "Switch"??

Blake is verrrrrry patchy. I don't think anyone can be a 'Blake Edwards' fan, his movies make that too difficult. I take his movies on a case by case basis.

Bruce Willis was still semi-David Addison in Blind Date which is probably why I liked the movie.

haha totally David Addison Kash......but he's so 80's dreamy [Smile] I like Blind Date it was one of my $3 Big Lots finds. John Larroquette and Phil Hartman also star in it. Basinger looks so different as a brunette. I think there are some great funny moments......ie: the art show haha

Something Wild is so different for a typical 80's movie to me.....almost more indie perfectly cast TOTALLY made me think of After Hours Logan.

Logan I only have not seen Into the Night on your list there.......so maybe I need to get on that... [Big Grin]

I listen to the Something Wild soundtrack often. It has a bunch of great tunes on it.

David Addison rules.
