Nancy Meyers Movies and Why I Am Obsessed


Here is a new twenty something bloom for you (and no, it is not a wilt) – the moment you know that being in your pajamas and laying in bed watching Netflix is more fun than getting dressed up and going to a bar. This may be a late twenties bloom though. You early birds get away with a big more.

Life is simply busy. Events, weddings, birthdays, engagements, babies, family, friends, there are so many things to do and since we only have so much time in the day, it can be hard to do them all. On top of all that too there is of course, making an effort to live healthily (exercise/shopping for good food) and not to mention that little thing called work. So, these days, when I get a chance to sit and do nothing, oh boy, I enjoy it. Even though I always have a million pending things to do for the blog, book tube, my book or around the house, I still try to shut off as much as possible when I get a chance to lounge.

Anyway, I figured I’m not the only one so I wanted to share what is new on Netlix this month – click here.

But do ya wanna know my guiltiest of pleasures? It’s definitely lounging on the couch or in bed watching my any movie by my favorite writer/director. And yes, if you are wondering I am referring to the Queen Nancy Meyers! I love that woman! If you don’t know who I am talking about she is the brains and grace behind heartwarming, amazing classics such as It’s Complicated, What Women Want, Father of the Bride, Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday, and of course, The Parent Trap! This is just to name a few. Check out her IMDB page here for a full list.

Anyway, she has a new movie coming out, The Intern, with Anne Hathaway and Robert DeNiro so you can be sure I will be poppin’ into one of those showings with my popcorn and waterbottle in tow… (and hidden in my purse…yup, guilty! Movie theater snacks = overpriced! Target snacks = just right). Though, it will be hard to beat It’s Complicated, The Holiday and the Parent Trap for me, I know for sure I will love it. Her movies are always set with adorably flawed yet neurotic and relatable characters. By the end of the movie, you feel like you know them. You cheer for them, you want them to find their happiness and growth. Not only that, she creates settings, careers and decors for these characters that are something of a dream. she really is a lifestyle expert. The concoction of factors creates a world that leaves you pretty thrilled to be a part of for two hours.

All this being said, you can expect a review once I get my hiney to the theater.

Also, check out this interview that Joanna Goddard from Cup of Jo did with Nancy. Ahhh this would be a dream interview for me! Enjoy!
