You all know what I'm talking about. No, not that. I'm talking about the moment that makes you fall in love with a story.
It could be a kissing scene. It could be a line that makes you laugh out loud. It could be the dynamic between two characters. At any rate, it's the thing you think about long after you've closed the book or stopped watching the movie.
For example, I was convinced I'd hate the move 27 Dresses. I mean, no one's been in that many weddings, right? Not to mention I've heard Katherine Heigl is kind of an itch with a b.
But wait... James Marsden is in it? That changes everything.
As it turns out, my lust for blue-eyed, dark-haired hotties led to me to watch a movie I actually ended up enjoying. And this scene is the one that did it for me:
Go ahead, try and tell me it's not adorable. The barbs, the singing, the confession, THE KISS... *sigh*
What's better than a mix of humor and hot? And who doesn't wish they had the guts to get up and sing the wrong words to Bennie and the Jets in front of a room full of people?
Then there's this scene, from one of my all time favorite movies ever, Gone With the Wind:
My CP's know this about me already, but I sort of have a weakness for flawed but likable characters. Specifically opinionated, somewhat petulant girls. Scarlett is most definitely that. And she is GORGEOUS.
Someone once told me I resembled Vivien Leigh (I don't) and it was probably the best compliment I've ever gotten. Off topic. Sorry.
Anyhow this scene is all about Rhett, and the way he puts her in her place without batting an eye - You miss, are no lady. And bam. Scarlett, for once in her life, is rattled. Let the sexual tension flow.
So peeps- share some of your favorite YES!!! moments with me. Whether it's books or movies, which fictional moments are still replaying in your mind?
