Rest In Peace (Part 2)

And so I continue my tribute to Brittany Murphy...

There’s the movie Just Married. I… I can’t even begin to put into words my love for this movie. It is definitely in my top 5 RomComs. It was one of those movies that, in previews, looked absolutely awful and cheesy and stupid. I don’t even know how long after it went to DVD I actually saw it, but when I did I fell in love. Hard.

There are three movies in my life that I have watched 3 times within 72 hours of my first viewing. They are: St. Elmo’s Fire, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. I would put Just Married in the category of movie’s I’m surprised are not on that list, because I could watch it forever and ever and never get sick of it.

The on-screen chemistry between Ashton and BMurph in Just Married is OFF THE CHARTS. Maybe it's because at the time they were a couple in real life. Who knows. I'd venture to say I've never seen anything as good until last night when I saw An Education. Go watch that immediately. Peter Sarsgaard is ridiccccc. For the record, worst on-screen Chemistry goes to Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant in Notting Hill. Seriously pathetic for two people who usually rock the RomCom drama like total Pros.

Some of the lines I use from Just Married aren’t even Brittany Murphy lines, they’re Ashton Kutcher lines, but when I use them, I still have to say “RIP BMurph” because it’s just respectful. And I loooooove that her nick name is Pee Wee in that movie. I want my nick name to be PeeWee, but since there is nothing Pee Wee about me, that’s never going to happen. But one of my children will be nicknamed Pee Wee, I’ll tell you that much right now. I don't care if I have to marry a midget to make that dream become a reality.

Some fan favorites:

“Cheese and rice” – Because sometimes saying Jesus Christ just isn’t appropriate.



“Breathe through your mouth. Just do it. Just do it.” – Because sometimes you have to breathe through your mouth to have sex in a smelly airplane bathroom.



“BEAT IT STEW.” – referring to a flight attendant as stew while you’re having sex in an airplane bathroom is top notch.




“Bonjour! Merci!” – Because common words in languages that aren’t English are funny.



“Assbag” – That one’s Ashton, but it’s great.



“Those birds are psychotic” – Also Ashton. And I use it all the time because birds are psychotic and I hate them.


Then you have some classics like Girl Interrupted:

"Everyone likes to be alone when it comes out, I like to be alone when it goes in, to me the cafeteria is like being with 20 girls all at once taking a dump."




Uptown Girls:

"This sounds like the soundtrack to something you'd slit your wrists to"

"Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, sheets of Egyptian cot-ton." - She doesn't sing it, but it's an amazing song.




Don't Say A Word:

"I'lll never tellllll" - creepy/amazing/memorable.




8 Mile:

"So, I hear you're a real dope rapper."




While looking for stuff about BMurph on YouTube there are approx 100 video montages of her set to the song Breathe Me by Sia (which gained fame from being the closing song in the series final of Six Feet Under... Don't even get me started on that amazingness). And they're actually pretty good/touching. I also found this interview on David Letterman with her that I enjoyed:



Her laugh is the most endearing and genuine thing I’ve ever heard and it brings a tear to my eye. So genuine. I love her. RIP BMURPH.
