I love the movies... but they're often wrong. I mean, not everyone meets Mr. Right walking their dog, and if you are having a bad day, there isn't usually an amazing life-changing event to make it all better. And I doubt any 40 year old virgins were hit by trucks in their efforts to hide their secret! The diet advice can be pretty sketchy too... here are my favourites!
The Devil Wears Prada was an amazing movie, and it even gives some fantastic fashion advice... it's the perfect film for girly sleep overs! It's diet advice isn't exactly spot on, though... I think I'd prefer to go for a run then use Emily's weight-loss method!
Knocked Up was hilarious... I watched it four times at the cinema! And I so wish that weight loss worked like the TV Executive seemed to think... Selecting your weight seems like such an easy way to ensure you always look your best!
I loved Bring It On, and the new cheerleading coach was so funny when he took over. I couldn't stop laughing at this advice to Darcy! Cutting your calories in half isn't a good idea, though, and makes you much more likely to stop burning calories then actually help you loose weight. Oops!
Mean Girls was a fantastic film, and Regina made a perfect ditz... comments like this made her seem so realistic! I'd love to know what she would classify carbs as... and what a great excuse to go to Taco Bell!
So taking diet advice from festive film Elf probably wasn't ever going to be a great idea, but Buddy's diet sounds so tempting... a bit sickly sweet, and our dentists would hate it, but it sounds good to me!
Julie and Julia was an unusual choice of film for me, but Julia had diet tips a-plenty that kept me in stitches. I love her style! I don't think it'd be too great for losing weight, though...
Olive's dad in Little Miss Sunshine seemed to have it all sorted out... although his logic makes absolutely no sense to me, I love the idea of eating ice cream and staying nice and skinny. There's nothing better then a white magnum... mmm!
I'm not sure any of these will give your diet a boost, but they sure made me laugh! And they make a great reminder that the movies really aren't great for getting advice from... leave the movies to entertain, rather than instruct, or your diet could go badly wrong... I don't think you've got much chance of shedding the pounds with these tips! Have you heard a great movie diet-tip I've missed? Please share it with me!
