This month is all about discovering new blogs, meeting new friends, and spreading the word about the launch of my young adult novel, MY SOON-TO-BE SEX LIFE, (Bloomsbury Spark, June 2014) by participating in this mega, 26 posts blog challenge.
Since Charlie, the main character in my novel, is an aspiring screenwriter who has plotted her own devirginization campaign - one that doesn't go as scripted - I thought an appropriate theme for this month would be: an alphabetical romp through the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright scary representations of virginity in film. Warning - be prepared for adult content / strong language if you follow my posts this month.
Join me over the next 26 days for some swoonworthy and/or cringeworthy cherry popper moments on the big screen. Check out the multitude of amazing A to Z bloggers via the challenge main page, HERE. And don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY at the end of this post!
S is for Superbad (2007)
Like Juno, I adored this script for pushing limits and changing my perception of what was doable on screen with teen lead characters. And while it's not outright announced....come on....can these guys be anything other than first timers?
The premise: "Two co-dependent high school seniors are forced to deal with separation anxiety after their plan to stage a booze-soaked party goes awry."
Famous line: "You know when you hear girls say 'Ah man, I was so shit-faced last night, I shouldn't have fucked that guy?' We could be that mistake!"
Famous scene: there are so many hilarious moments in this film, but one of the most emotional...is the drunken sleepover scene. This is bromance at its best.
