Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Spring Break

First of all, I think it is a crime that there are some people in this country (I'm not naming names, but some that are VERY CLOSE TO ME) who have not heard "Strawberry Wine," which is perhaps the most important country song released in the 1990s. So, for those of you NOT IN THE KNOW (and probably leading sad lives because of it), here's the video for it.



And, since I'm sharing, I happened to finally see Spring Break Shark Attack tonight, and I swear, it exceeded my expectations. For all of you chumming fetishists, this film is for you. Bonus points if you love Kathy Baker as much as I do!

Two clips of this great achievement in cinema made-for-TV film history:

About fucking time you watched that movie. I seriously don't know what took you so long.

Because martini glasses are so hard to spill to begin with, let's take a bunch of ready-made glasses out on a raft! And if the four of them couldn't fit on there to begin with- how did they all get out in the middle of the ocean? I can practically see the tech guy's arm flipping that raft up in the air.

You should have saved this for your "non-sentimental Monday post".

I take it that you didn't watch it with him, cause if you think that's the most ridiculous part, then you weren't paying attention.

There are actual people out there who have not heard Strawberry Wine?

Is this movie available on NetFlix?

Tyler said...

It sure is, Cherry.

Leah: I think the best thing about that first scene is that the women in that raft don't look any older than the women playing the Spring Breakers in the rest of the movie.

If by 'older', you mean 'The Real Divorcees of Orange County'.

Okay wow I didn't realize it'd been like 10 years since I heard Strawberry Wine, I feel like I'm in 8th grade again....
