TBT – Save the Last Dance (2001)

films, reviews, TBT

So, anyone who has read my Tuesday Review of the Netflix original film Work It will know that I was in two minds about what to watch for my TBT review this week. Part of me wanted to watch Save the Last Dance and the other wanted me to watch Bring It On. Turns out, it’s really hard to track down a copy of Bring It On at the last minute. At least at a price that feels worth it. Julia Stiles as a hip hop ballerina. It’s a film that I haven’t watched in a really long time, so I don’t really know where the desire to watch it came from. I guess I just really missed Julia Stiles.

With your gorgeously bouncy red hair and your girl next door attitude, you were the person young girls dreamed of being. Although, if I’m honest, I’m more of an Ally Sheedy type myself but I still have a lot of love for you and your hair. In fact, every few months or so, mostly after I’ve rewatched The Breakfast Club or Pretty in Pink, I have a strong desire to chop all of my hair off into a bob and dye it ginger. You’re still an icon now and continue to inspire teenagers to this day. Especially as the hispters out there discover that pop culture in the 80s is amazing and try to take it for their own.
