An incredibly touching scene, the last scene in Riding In Cars With Boys
Two great actors: Drew Barrymore & James Woods !
Don't be mistaken about Drew: She's sexy alright, but she's also a moving (in all senses) actress.
In this movie, "She really nailed it."
Guys, if ya havent seen it yet, then
And it's based on a true-life story, Beverly D'Onofrio's book with that name.
And for the feinschmeckers: Chet Atkins plays the guitar on this song, All I Have To Do Is Dream, the original Everly Brothers' version (1958).
From Dan Aldridge's review of Riding In Cars With Boys on IMDB:
"I admit that I watched this movie for the most frivolous of reasons: I liked Brittany Murphy's performance in the trailer ('My daughta's a tramp!'). I really never cared for Drew Barrymore, before. However, my opinion of her has changed. Drew put in an INCREDIBLE performance in this movie. She really nailed it. In fact, all of the actors gave commendable performances. I was so moved that I was quite uncomfortable for much of the movie. The pain that was portrayed was so real that I almost regretted purchasing what I thought was supposed to be a comedy. I'm glad I got through it - and an hour later I'm still stunned by what I saw. This movie is well worth seeing.
I also think that this movie was a kind of therapy for Beverly, who is standing up, triumphantly, shouting, 'I went through a lot of crap and I made it!'"
Hey guys, am I becoming a sentimental old milksop ?
