Break out the crab dip, baby! November may have just begun, but we’ve already got our minds on New Year’s Eve—specifically 1982, when a little ol’ movie called 200 Cigarettes took place. The movie came out in 1999 and featured numerous familiar faces, many who were just lil baby celebrities at the time (Kate Hudson, Christina Ricci, Ben Affleck, Courtney Love, Paul Rudd, and SO many more). We follow all of the characters during one fateful NYE night as they make their way across New York City to get to a party. The ‘fits are FAB and costumed by thee Susan Lyall who we talked about in our Empire Records and also did Molly’s Game, the Trial of the Chicago 7, Being the Ricardos, and more. Listen, if you’ve ever found yourself compelled to don leopard print, or a furry coat, tights and heels as a New Year’s Eve outfit, this movie might have been why.
Off topic rambles include the Mothman (hit Marie up if you are a Mothman luva), the Jeepers Creepers man…excuse me, but how did he get a personalized license plate?, lesser known early aughts teen thrillers (hint: we MAY have a themed month on the docket), and we butt heads over imitation crab. Fun all around!
