Adult Section

Nine Months (1995)

Nine Months is a romantic comedy about sports-car driving, commitment-phobe Samuel Faulkner (Hugh Grant) and long-time girlfriend, and dance teacher Rebecca Taylor (Julianne Moore), when - OOPS - they're pregnant. She's excited; him, not so much. It's hilarious because of the comedic romping and laugh-out-loud chaos that ensues. Also has Tom Arnold and Joan Cusack.

Starring Scarlett Johansson as fresh-out-of-college Annie Braddock, new in New York, and looking for employment. Her world gets shocked into the harshness of reality when she's hired as a Nanny by Mrs. X (Laura Linney). As a future Anthropologist, Annie decides to use this job to observe the New York suburban culture. There are harsh realities in the culture that are unveiled, otherwise it's a heart-tugging good time.

A movie about how one night can change the rest of your life forever. Nick is reeling over his break-up with his ex and over analyzes her appearance at one of his shows. When he meets Norah, a woman that is just what Nick needs to learn how to live and enjoy life, not dwell in the past. Kat Dennings is Norah and Michael Cera as Nick.

Chevy Chase is Clark Griswald, a man who just wants to take his family on a nice cross-country vacation. However, the universe has different plans for the Griswald family as they travel to Wally World. This is a classic movie! My boyfriend can recite this movie word-for-word. Another favorite in the National Lampoon's series is Christmas Vacation (1989). 

New Moon (2009)

Based off the bestselling book by Stephenie Meyers, New Moon is the second installment of the Twilight series. It follows Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) on their saga of love and trying to live in a complicated world full of Volturi and Wolf Packs. Did I mention that Edwards part of a Vampire covenant, but they don't drink human blood... they're conscious that way.

Starring the lovely Drew Barrymore as Josie Gellar, a journalist looking for that breaking story. Her brother (David Arquette) is pining for his glory days back in High School. Lucky for him, Josie gets an undercover gig at her old high school. Some things never change, and then again, some things do.

Nine to Five (1980)

Have you ever wanted to get even with your boss? Well, in Nine to Five three co-workers stand together against their masochistic boss. This is a hilarious comedy starring the comedic legend, Lily Tomlin, the iconic country singer Dolly Parton, and Jane Fonda. They're just the team to make the company work without anyone noticing that the boss hasn't been around.

Notebook, The (2004)

This movie adaption of Nicolas Sparks bestseller stars Gena Rowlands and James Garner, a couple reminiscing about their torrid love affair. Add in that they're both in an elderly home, and it adds to the amazing journey of Allie (Gena Rowlands and Rachael McAdams) and her love with Noah (Ryan Gosling) or Duke (James Garner). Get your box of tissues ready...

Net, The (1995)

I'm such a Sandra Bullock fan, I don't know that there isn't a movie she's been in that I don't like. In The Net she plays Angela Bennett, and she works on computers. One day, her identity changes and now she's on the run. Someone is after her, and it just might be someone she trusts. This thrilling movie will have you holding your breath with Angela as she fights to regain her identity.

Nightmare on Elm Street, A (1984)

The poster reads: If Nancy doesn't wake up screaming she won't wake up at all. I believe this was Johnny Depp's first movie role - which he's fabulous in. My only question is: why is Nancy (supposedly) naked in the movie poster? I love this movie because it's a classic and I still get scared watching it to this day. There is a newer rendition, while it's o.k.; I still believe this is the best version.
"1, 2, Freddy's coming for you... 3, 4, better lock your door... 5, 6, grab your crucifix... 7, 8, better stay up late... 9 - 10 - never - sleep -a-gain" Yikes!!
