This movie has so many solid emotional moments… its a shame its not remembered that way. Don’t get me wrong, its hilarious. But I just rewatched it and I have to say, the things that struck me the most were the feelings of hitting rock bottom. The idea of two really close girlfriends drifting apart. The depiction of being too guarded around *actually* nice guys because you’ve been hurt too many times. I think this film does a really good job at articulating these feelings, and yet I couldn’t find a single gif set of any of them.
Anyway. I cried when I watched it the first time (in theaters with Krissie and Ava, freshman year, AMC Lincoln Center on the UWS, during finals week— not knowing what the fuck I was doing with my summer/life) and held back tears again (watching alone, in my room, while my neighbors had loud sex, [side note: blasting Wilson Phillips seems to be the best possible thing I could do in this situation] as a college senior about to graduate) because apparently I have not developed as a human being since then.
