On the heels of her latest movie news, this week's Movie Night is all about Sarah Jessica Parker. She will forever be associated with Carrie Bradshaw on "Sex and the City," but the truth is, she's played some delightful non-Carrie-like characters in her day.
Banish from your mind Failure to Launch and If Lucy Fell, and check out three of my favorite movies that feature SJP. And instead of photo stills, this week I found short clips from each of these movies. This first one is truly a little bit of '80s bliss.
Girls Just Want to Have Fun
For this movie description — in case you somehow missed the movie back in the mid-1980s — I'm deferring to the Netflix write-up because it's rather hilarious: "Janey (Sarah Jessica Parker) is a shy good girl. Lynne (Helen Hunt) is a cool rock chick. But when the two friends scheme to get Janey on television's biggest after-school dance show, they find themselves on a wild adventure filled with cute boys, hot dancing, prudish nuns, mean rich kids, parents that just don't understand, and girls doing what they know best...just having FUN!"
