Who’ll Be First?

This is our final week of A Day in the Life, and we’re focusing on buzz, or anything in our pop culture. Keeping our theme in mind, here are photos from three popular movies:

American Graffiti

The Wizard of Oz

Groundhog Day

Who'll be the first to tell us their common thread, why I’ve chosen them for this blog?

Then...who can jump in with other theme-appropriate movie titles?

Okay, you have me *totally* stumped. I so suck at lateral thinking. Wait, maybe I have an idea. Does it have something to do with timeframe?

TinaFerraro said...

Yep! Think our theme, A Day in the Life...

Hi Tina,
I know the answer, so I won't guess. As for you're other question, I can't think of three movies. But have do have to say that the new movie Made of Honor seems like the exact plot of My Best Friend's reverse.


Me said...

Well, I think I have it, but I don't want to ruin it! Um, other movies in this theme...

Breakfast Club
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Can't Hardly Wait
One Fine Day

How'd I do?

And Janie, I so hope that Made of Honor has a different ending than My Best Friend's Wedding! I always root for Patrick to get the girl. =)

TinaFerraro said...

Yep, Tera, you got it! Anyone else want to play?

And I'm always up for Patrick Dempsey getting the girl...including me!

Breanna said...

hmm lets see if I can do this...

Dazed and Confused,
The Goonies, (not sure if thats right)
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, (not sure about this one either)
Adventures In Babysitting

Did I do alright?

TinaFerraro said...


Dazed and Confused--for sure. Bill and Ted--yeah, I think so. I haven't seen the other two movies, so I'm not sure, but I'd say you cracked the code!

Anyone want to spell it out?

Breanna said...

Oh man you haven't seen The Goonies or Adventures In Babysitting?! You should see them! Oh man, they are excellent!

Anyway to "crack the code" its movies that happen over the course of one day.

Sixteen Candles
The Breakfast Club
Am I right????

TinaFerraro said...

Thanks, Breanna!

And Anon--sounds like you got it right. I'll admit it's been YEARS since I've seen Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, so I can't remember the time frame, but if they all happen in one day...then, yeah.
