and i even saw the movie in the theater (with five other friends). is that really so shocking? what teenie bopper/chick flick haven’t i watched? it all started when i’d go home and i’d take my little sisters to see whatever movie their little hearts desired… there was lion king, prince of egypt, the princess diaries…
then there was a stint during 1999 when i was forced to go to every possible teenie bopper movie with my friend randee… i was about to leave on a mission and she was depressed that there wasn’t a special someone in her life. so to cope, we watched 10 things i hate about you, never been kissed and she’s all that. it wasn’t much of a remedy. instead we fell hopelessly in like with poetry slammers that could hacky sack and heath ledger and michael vartan.
things only escalated in 2003ish with my dc girls… a cinderella story, 13 going on 30, maid in manhattan, the wedding planner, dirty dancing havana nights, bend it like beckham, the prince and me, chasing liberty, the first daughter… and the lizzie mcguire movie.
back to the show. yes maybe i’m obsessed with hilary duff… my little sister once demanded i tell her some hilary duff song titles so she could call into radio disney and win something exciting… i love the crazy little brother that messes up her life and i love her revenge of the nerds dad and her friends and the little cartoon lizzie that pops up when things go wrong. it’s just all around fantastic television. luckily i draw the line at mary-kate and ashley.
