I remember how much her realization that she was “never going to be good enough for him” resonated with me when I first watched this movie. She decided to push herself, not to be with him, but to prove him the fuck wrong.
Strong female role models who can still wear pink and love fashion. Yes yes yes.
I FUCKING LOVE THIS MOVIE OH MY GODDDDDDDDDD
CAN WE JUST STOP FOR A SEC THO?
HE’S INSULTING HER FOR BEING DUMB
SHE GOT INTO THAT SCHOOL ON HER OWN.
WARNER NEEDED HIS DADDY TO CALL THEM TO BE ABLE TO GET IN.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE NO ONE EVEN UNDERSTANDS.
I’m fairly positive that this movie taught me that it’s okay to be very feminine and love pink and be super fucking smart and take zero shit from dumbass boys.
I also liked how she showed up in her bunny outfit, expecting a costume party, and when she discovered that it wasn’t, she just shrugged and stayed for the party anyway. No “boo-hoo I’m so embarrassed I must run and hide my shame”, she’s got confidence in spades and doesn’t let it throw her off her game, aside from being mildly upset that she was lied to.
I read somewhere that sirens/mermaids sang songs that they heard from sailors on passing ships. I imagine this is what a modern siren would sound like singing this song.
the thing about free is that its like super intense and kind of uncomfortably realistic?? like in haikyuu is just “VOLLEYBALL VOLLEYBALL VOLLEYBALL ONLY VOLLEYBALL FOREVER” and big windup is like “baseball! and friendship!! friendship and baseball!!!” but free is like “THINK ABOUT YOUR FUTURE. WHERE ARE YOU GOING IN LIFE. SOUSUKE IS IN SERIOUS PAIN AND MAY NOT SWIM AGAIN. RINS DAD IS DEAD”
