I get why they laugh in the scene on the lake but I just find the moment when it cuts to her laughing so weird...I always think of it being in a montage of cheesy moments But I love the scene on the lake overall - it's just very beautiful.

Belle, I love your icon! And I also find the timeline of it all kind of surprising - they had a summer love and it carried on for them that long...

Thanks! The show and the books are addicting, aren't they? I'm trying to take a break from reading all the books in a row, but it's quite hard.

How long do you think she dated Lon for? I had estimated about 3 years in my mind.

That was quite intense, which I liked. And it also led to a quite intense (for a PG-13 movie) love scene.
I agree, those scenes were good for a PG-13 movie.

I agree with that. He had a lot more to overcome than Allie. I felt really bad for him when he overheard Allie's mother call him trash three times.

I hadn't thought about the length. Three years sound realistic. Aw, that's a pretty long time though... poor Lon.

He and Allie were from different social classes, too, so maybe that's why Allie didn't suffer as much as he did. He had to work really hard, and he also fixed up their dream house all by himself. I found that amazing, by the way. And sweet.

Allie, on the other hand, seemed to be just skipping through life, having fun, and dating Lon.

Should we start voting for next month's movie? I vote for Mean Girls again.

Sherlock Holmes
The Time Traveler's Wife
State of Play
The Lucky Ones
Married Life
The Family Stone
Red Eye
Wedding Crashers
The Notebook - July's movie
Mean Girls
The Hot Chick

I remembered the voiceover saying that Allie was in her 3rd year of college when she volunteered as a nurse in the war. And they she met back with Noah when she was 24...so I guess she was about 20 when she met Lon?

This month was a lot of fun. Did you like how we did it? Depending if we get a lot of votes, we can try to find time where we can all watch it together, if we wanted to try something new.

This month was really fun! It's nice to revisit Rachel's movies. I'm looking forward this month. Get those votes in everyone!

Any more votes?

Or should we just call it? Mean Girls is on ABC Family tonight (at 8 PM eastern) and tomorrow night (6 PM eastern) by the way.

Could we sneak in a Red Eye rewatch? I'm probably going to watch the extended version on TV on ABC tonight.

I'd say those are two of the most popular Rachel movies here on so that sounds good to me too

So we'll do both Red Eye and Mean Girls for this month?

I'm ready to discuss Red Eye whenever you guys are. I watched the televised version on ABC this past Saturday.

Ready to discuss as well since I've seen both recently

So, should we start with Red Eye, then? I haven't had time to watch Mean Girls yet, but I've seen most of Red Eye on TV when it aired.

Yeah, let's start with Red Eye. I've taken some questions off yours from last time, Belle.

Discussion Questions

1) General thoughts about the movie? What grade would you give it on 10?
2) Did you notice anything new that you missed in previous viewings?
3) Favorite character and why?
4) Least favorite character and why?
5) Favorite line/quote?
6) How did Lisa's character evolve from start to finish?
7) How did Jackson's character evolve from start to finish?
8) Compare/contrast Jackson and Lisa. How are they similar? How are they different?
9) Was Lisa attracted to Jackson? Was Jackson attracted to Lisa? What are their general thoughts of one another?
10) Was Jackson a one-dimensional 'bad guy'? Did Lisa view him as one? Did you think he had any remorse/regret for the assassination plot he was involved in?
11) Why did you think Lisa shared her rape story to Jackson at the end? What did you think of his response?
12) Do you think Jackson really intended to kill Lisa at the end? Do you think Lisa really intended to kill Jackson?


Feel free to add more questions everybody! I'll do the same if I think of any more.

Great questions!

1) I think the movie could've been a little longer and had a different ending I'd give it a 7 out of 10

2) Nope

3) Jackson, because I mean come on! He's freaking badass, and I just love how charming yet calculated he is.

4) That annoying blonde lady on the plane who keeps flirting with Jackson

5) "Thanks for the quickie"

6) I feel like Lisa became a much stronger person by the end of the movie. I love that she was able to take care of herself.

7) Jackson evolved from feeling like he was invincible to being taken down many notches.

8) Jackson and Lisa are similar in that they're both people pleasers. They know the right things to say to people to influence someone else's mood. They're different in many ways, mainly on what they believe is right and wrong.

9) I definitely think Lisa was attracted to Jackson up until she found out what he wanted. It's hard to tell whether or not Jackson was, but I bet he was.

10) I don't think he's one-dimensional. He just needed to get the job done, and that's all there is to it. I think Lisa could tell there was another side to him, that he easily could've been the charming man she met in the airport with a job in business. I doubt he did since he does things like that all the time.

11) I think Lisa was trying to get him off his game, so he'd be a little distracted. I liked his response, it wasn't necessarily comforting but it wasn't rude either.

12) Jackson was probably going to kill Lisa cuz otherwise I don't see why he would've followed. I don't think Lisa wanted to kill Jackson, maybe just knock him unconscious until the police arrived
