Remember Lady and the Tramp?

It’s been such a whirlwind we decided to stay in tonight and take a breather now that we’re 1/3 of our way through wedding stuff! (Remember to do this even after you’re 100% married ok?) And with the help of all your recommendations I’ve zeroed in on two DVDs. (Which we’re still hoping to watch if *fingers crossed* we can get our Chroma DVD player set to Region 5 to play Movie Junctions Region 1 DVDs #wtf?!) Wanna see what we (ok I *lol*) picked? And some trivia too. Why? Cos I love movie trivia! :) xoxo

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

High school student Nick O’Leary, member of the Queercore band The Jerk Offs, meets college-bound Norah Silverberg when she asks him to be her boyfriend for five minutes.

Ari Graynor (Caroline) improvised her whole speech at the Port Authority when Kevin Corrigan decided he wouldn’t say a word during his scene.

– Nick’s cellphone ring tone is Boys Don’t Cry by The Cure. (The lyrics tell the story of a man who has given up trying to regain the love of a girl that he has lost, and tries to disguise his true emotional state by “laughing, hiding the tears in his eyes, ’cause boys don’t cry”.)

A Lot Like Love

On a flight from Los Angeles to New York, Oliver and Emily make a connection, only to decide that they are poorly suited to be together. Over the next seven years, however, they are reunited time and time again, they go from being acquaintances to close friends to … lovers?

– The scene where Emily and Oliver are standing naked behind the car and Oliver says to her that she just “looked” (at his genital area) hadn’t primarily been shot for the movie. It was actually a real moment between Amanda Peet and Ashton Kutcher, which the director decided to use for the film afterwards.

– Oliver (Ashton Kutcher) tells his sister Ellen (Taryn Manning) in a phone conversation at a party that he has just ran into her favorite rapper Eminem. Taryn Manning played Eminem’s ex-girlfriend in the movie 8 Mile.

– Actress Birdie M. Hale, who was more than 90 years old during production of A Lot Like Love (2005), played the role of an old woman with a singular line (“Would you like to sit next to your girlfriend?”) on a New York subway train early in the film. She had a very similar role as an elderly passenger on a New York subway train – also encouraging the two protagonists to get together – at the end of Coming to America.
