El NiÃ±o Essentials: Movies
As El NiÃ±o is happening I for one, do not like leaving the house. Â I try to stay home as much as possible because rain and wind plus Southern California drivers is not a good mix. Â So, I have decided to make a list of movies to watch while home! Â You can watch these by yourself, with your friends, husband, and kids!
Mean Girls– Classic early 2000s movie! This movie will never get old. Â You will still cheer for Glen CoCo in many years to come!
Singing in the Rain- Now this is a classic! Came out in 1952–Debbie Reynolds, Gene Kelly, and Donald O’Connor are the ultimate triple threat! Â You’ll feel like your right in the movie with the rain coming down outside your windows! Plus the choreography, Oh my goodness!!
Bridesmaids- This movie might not be appropriate for some kids (sex scenes and language), but it sure gives us a great laugh! I mean, who doesn’t love Maya Rudolph, Kristen Wigg, Melissa McCarthy and Rose Byrne?
The Breakfast Club– This movie (in my opinion) is the epitome of teen angst. Â With different clique’s clashing at first, come together and realize that they all have things going on, and it makes for a wonderful movie!
21 Jump Street-Â Adapted into a movie from the popular television show in the late 1980s stars actors Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, narcs undercover as high school students to solve a mystery of who is master mind with a new drug. Hilariously funny!
Friends With Benefits– This movie might not be appropriate for some kids (sex scenes). Â If you like RomComs, definitely watch this movie! Starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. Â Both just getting out of a relationships decided to try to have friends with benefits not realizing that they were falling for each other in the process.
**I recommend starting with Singing in the Rain and then making your way down the rest of the list!
And of course, Harry Potter is also a great rainy day marathon series!
