Everyones first love probably came from a movie or a TV show. Mine was probably the Pink Ranger. She would have made the list if this was TV Show Crushes. This is not TV Show crushes. This is Movie Crushes.
Jimmy is in blue. Evan is in green.
Yellow Pants Girl - My Girl
Yellow pants was in with the wrong crowd and she knew it. Way to sweet of a girl to be hanging out with such bitches. She just didn't have the courage or wherewithal to fully stand up for what she believed in yet. We saw sparks of it though. She invited Veda to the movies because she was naturally a nice girl. Heart of gold. Also the cutest sad walk ever. My young self always knew she was a keeper. Big old crush.
Natalie Portman - Garden State
Cute as a button, has a good laugh and likes good music. All you really need.
Elisha Cuthbert - The Girl Next Door
The cute little pornstar that moves next door! Exudes sex appeal and the fantasy of pretty much all dudes in high school. However, she gets points deducted because this is a totally ridiculous and unbelievable scenario.
The Girl from Flipper - Flipper
I used to watch this movie on repeat when I was little. Crazy drunk Uncle. Some bad guys. A bad shark. Elijah Wood being a punk bitch teenager who only cares about concerts. A local girl who cares about stuff. I actually had to pull up a clip a couple weeks ago because my little brother didn't know that dolphins kill sharks. I said, why don't you take a little look at this documentary called Flipper where a dolphin and his friends kick the fuck out of a hammerhead shark named Scar and learn a thing or two about under water life. Anyways...to the point...I always had a crush on this girl. Even when she replaced Topanga for like four episodes in BMW.
Lola Bunny - Space Jam
Conflicted. Because this is a cartoon. But I can't deny how Lola Bunny makes me feel all over. A sexy bunny who can school you on the basketball court. Where do I sign up?
Charlie Conways Girlfriend - Mighty Ducks 3
This girl hates hockey. Her first scene in the movie she's protesting all of sports basically. That's key in a girlfriend. You don't want her having the same interests as you. That's what friends are for. You do want her to kinda support you a little bit. And support Charlie this girl does. She runs down to the ice after the Ducks win to give him a congratulations kiss. Charlie kisses his mom first though. When I watched this scene with my mom she said, "that's right, your mother always comes first", those words stayed with me but when my team won the state championship my girlfriend was also the goalie on my team so I think I kissed her first just cause of easy access. Sorry ma.
P.S. After watching that clip I can confidently say the only reason I had a crush on her was her sweet hair braid situation. Love that shit.
Kate Hudson - Fool's Gold
Big Kate Hudson fan. The Caribbean setting of this film really lets her shine. Also her bikini. The whole movie is basically just her getting mad at her ex husband Matt McConaughey and then they make out at the end. But it works because she's cute when she's mad and flustered.
Christina Ricci - Casper/Now & Then/Gold Diggers/That Darn Cat
Basically the IT girl of the early 90s. She was always so angsty. Always a tomboy. Never the pretty girl of the movie. Didn't matter. Spunk and attitude could get you a long way in my young heart I guess.
Matthew McConaughey - Fool's Gold
If Jimmy let me, my top 10 Movie Crushes would be the exact same list as my top 10 McConaughey movies. Because he's just a flat out hunk. But I could only include 1 and this movie takes the cake because I don't think he wears a shirt the entire film? Just in a bathing suit being all dreamy and carefree and searching for sunken treasure. Swoon!
Phoebe Cates - Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Jennifer Jason Leigh does nothing for me and she is way overshadowed by her supporting actress here. Phoebe is a babe the entire movie, but she belongs on this list for the pool scene alone. If you've seen the movie, you know the scene I'm talking about and why I am uncomfortable linking it here...
Julia Stiles - 10 Things I Hate About You
If I was a girl I would want to be Kat Stratford. Julia plays this character really well and tugs at my heartstrings in the process. She does her own thing, and doesn't care what anyone else thinks. Socially and intellectually wise beyond her years. A total badass betch. But she also lets her guard down when the time is right. Gives love a chance. Wears her heart on her sleeve. Delivers the famous 'poem in front of her peers, which no one in high school would ever have the girl balls to do.
Reese Witherspoon - Walk the Line
I just want to make sure it is clear that I do not have a crush on June Carter. I do not enjoy June Carter songs. I do have a crush on Reese Witherspoon when she pretends to be June Carter. I do enjoy June Carter songs when Reese Witherspoon is singing them. Just an all around fantastic gal. Has a sense of humor... check. But a serious side as well... check. Attractive... check. Can sing pretty.... check. Kind of sad because she sucks at marriage.... check. Will weed you off drugs and help you out when you suck and no one else likes you... check. Is really cute when she mocks you and says 'baby' a bunch... check.
Wendy Peffercorn - The Sandlot
The OG crush. The crush that all future crushes would be measured against. Good on Squints Palledorous for having the stones to fake drown and plant one on her. They get married at the end and have like 12 kids. That shows why you gotta risk it for the biscuit. Also the actress who plays Wendy is 42 now and somehow looks even better
Mila Kunis - Forgetting Sarah Marshall
This is what I consider a perfect girl personality wise. Well and looks wise too because Mila Kunis is super hot. Feels bad for you because you're a sad sack of shit but doesn't judge you. Has a little damage on her herself to even the playing field. Likes to have a good time. Will make you jump off a cliff to kiss her (that part kind of sucks). The scene where she makes him sing the dracula song at karaoke is great. Need a girl that's going to push ya a little. Find the better you, ya know? But the next morning when she lovingly mocks him with his own song then says "that shit is funny dude," that ten seconds prove my point that she's awesome.
Olivia Wilde - Tron
Olivia wearing that tron suit and riding that tron motorcycle? Woah. The character has an innocence to her, while also being extremely smart. Don't know how that works but boy does it ever. She could also kick my ass, which would keep me in line when I get cranky. I want them to make another Tron movie so bad because I need more of this:
Garret Hedlund - Country Strong
If you haven't seen this movie you should. You have to suffer through some Gwyneth Paltrow but she doesn't ruin it. Garret Hedlund basically plays the kind of man every women dreams about and every dude wants to be. Total badass but also a sweet heart at the same time. If you are having severe stage fright and can't sing, even though he thinks your career is a joke and he doesn't really like you he will grab his gee tar, get on stage and help you out.
Rachel McAdams - Wedding Crashers
Had a picture of Claire Cleary taped to the front of my binder throughout all of high school. Everyone loved her in this movie when it came out and I hated it. I wanted her all for myself. Don't blame Owen Wilson one bit for breaking all the rules to try and win her over. Don't blame him for reading the suicide books when it didn't work out either. I've watched every Rachel McAdams movie since hoping she recreated some of that Claire bear magic, but I don't think it can be done. The perfect movie crush.
Amy Adams butt in Night at the Museum 2, Lisa P from Adventureland, Alex Mac in 10 Things I Hate about You
Scar Jo in Lost in Translation, Gwyneth Paltrow in The Royal Tenenbaums
Thanks to SnipNinja for all the easy made videos!
