Friend Makin’ Monday: Living In Movies

It’s time for Friend Makin’ Mondays, and this week Amber is asking a question suggested by yours truly. =) Thanks Amber! I feel so loved. hehe If you want to join the fun (and I hope you do) head over to Amber’s blog for details.

So, here’s the question:

If life were a movie, which one would you want to live in?

This is such an easy question for me to answer. I would live in Hairspray! I have watched this movie more than I’ll admit to anyone, and it never gets old. No matter what my mood is when it starts, I feel utter happiness when it’s over.

If you’ve never seen it then you should definitely make it a priority to do so. Just to be clear, I’m referring to the remake from 2007. Tracy weighs more than the average girl, but she has big dreams and ambition to change the world around her. She doesn’t just sit around thinking things should change, she does her part to change them.

And if you know me at all, you know I moved away from everything I knew to make my own world what I want it to be. I’m trying to do my part to change things starting with myself. The biggest and more unfortunate difference is that Link ends up falling for her — not me. (Sorry boyfriend..Zac Efron is just so darn cute. hehe)

So I’d live Hairspray because I’d get to play the part of Tracy, and I would love to posses her unwavering confidence in herself and in what is right and wrong.

What movie would you live in? Is there a certain character that would help define your life? Or would you reinvent yourself completely?

    You know, I was totally skeptical about the Efron kid until I saw him in 17 Again. I'll have to check out the Hairspray remake and see how he/it is!

    Happy FMM!

    I like this movie as well. I love Adam Shankman (the director) and think he did a great job on the remake.

    Happy FMM!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the first Hairspray movie by John Waters, so I went to see the Broadway musical before it closed. I have to say, I still prefer the John Waters version. I haven't seen the newer movie.

    What a fun movie! It's so hilarious that John Travolta had a female role in this movie. Love It!
