Friday Night Movie Night

Another Steve Martin classic this week - something I watched HUNDREDS of times as a 10 year old - Father of the Bride. Nick has been away this week so my sister is keeping me company, and we have been going through some old favourites. I love this just as much as I did when I was a kid, and have a totally new level of appreciation for Martin Short as the wedding planner. There aren't too many really memorable fashion moments, but Annie's post wedding outfit is perfection. Anyway that isn't what this movie is about! Anyone else love this as much as I did in the early 90s?!

Oh, gosh, YES! I love this movie. I haven't seen it in so long. I love her high-heel sneakers.

This is one of those timeless 90's movies where the interior/exterior decor of the house paired with the classic dressing of the era (think khakis and white button downs) makes for a heartbreakingly perfect film. Of course I love Steve Martin and you're right about Martin Short, his character is hilarious and a little before it's time. Something about the lighting and editing - like Pretty Woman- just make it all the more sentimental. Sigh...
