Looks like I’ve picked a pretty good week to jump back into the weekly memes.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature by the wonderful The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new theme and you can participate when and if you choose.
Movie Freebie — top ten all time favorite movies, top ten foreign films, top ten rom-coms, top ten 90’s movies, top ten action flicks, top ten tear-jerkers, top ten movies your favorite actor/actress is in, top ten movies with PoC leads, etc. etc.)
I’ve decided to go with my favourite top 10 movies from the late 90’s to the early 2000’s. Movies in this time period were hilariously cheesy and to this day are still some of my favourite guilty pleasures. Have you seen any of these?

Get Over It
One word: Sisqo
When Berke Landers, a popular high school basketball star, gets dumped by his life-long girlfriend, Allison, he soon begins to lose it. But with the help of his best friend Felix’s sister Kelly, he follows his ex into the school’s spring musical.

Bring It On
If you don’t like cheerleaders, watch this just for the witty one liners.
