Monday Movie Music Moment

She’s All That (circa 1999) was the first movie I saw in theatres that didn’t involve talking animals, puppets, or animation. It was at a Birthday party in Grade 6 and the four girls and I who ran into the front row couldn’t be more excited to see a ‘cool grown-up’ movie. Fast forward 10 years later, and you would find me curled up with my 6 best friends at our weekend getaway watching that same movie and shamelessly quoting its corny lines. I don’t know about you guys, but there is something really comforting about putting on an old, cheesy movie.

And so, this past weekend, I turned to my distinguished movie collection and dusted it off for a trip down 90’s memory lane. I was brought to the land where Zack (Freddie Prinze Jr.) was the coolest guy around and Laney (Rachel Leigh Cook) wore glasses, making her a ‘geek’. When Zack boasts that he can turn ANY girl into prom queen, he didn’t know he’d end up turning Laney into the love of his life… awwww!

But before Zack could go ahead and fall for his ‘nerd’ he enlists his sister to give her a makeover. Luckily, all she apparently needed was a haircut and contacts. But, nevertheless, the big reveal is a movie music moment that will go down in history… or at least something that will take me back to the sixth grade for a brief moment (and make me take off my glasses)…in a nutshell.

Who wears glasses anyway? #nerd
