“I Know What You Did Last Summer”

Do you? Do you, really? What are you, some kind of stalker? Last summer was awesome. I went overseas, ate some good, cheap food. Did you follow me all the way there too?

I know, this post is two weeks too late! I’ve had a pretty stressful halloween week that I forgot to post this. ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ was released in 1997, staring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillipe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Freddie Prince Jr.

PLOT:

Four smokin’ hot teenagers [best cast ever] are driving towards the beach at night to celebrate their high school graduation. They accidentally hit a man and they believe he is dead. They freak out and decide to throw him down a lake instead of calling the cops or ambulance. However, when the ‘dead man’ was in the water, he latches out and becomes alive! Instead of saving him, they drown him even more so that he is dead.

*I much prefer Ryan Phillippe over Freddie Prince Jr., but Ryan acts like an ass hole in the movie.

After a year has passed, the gang receive a letter that says ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ and they go on a hunt to find out who wrote the note. All they know is it’s some person hiding under a fisherman’s hat, and using his fisherman hook to kill everyone.

The first time I watched this (2005) I laughed throughout the whole move. They call this a scary movie? The Ring, now that’s some scary shit. Anyway, I recently watched it again and I don’t know why, I actually got scared. I guess the second time I knew that it wasn’t scary, so I watched it in a relaxed manner. I put myself in their shoes and being chased after a stranger (happens a lot in my dream) is scary as hell. This isn’t a ghost that will just give you a scare, but a person that can cause you tremendous amount of pain.

What I wanted to blog about was the trend it caused at school. Everyone kept saying ‘I know what you did last summer’. I knew it was a movie, but I hadn’t seen it at the time so I just thought “okay”. Four years after the movie was released, I gained an enemy in high school because she believed I turned her friends against her (she actually did that herself but whatever). She wanted to get back at me so she left me an anonymous note that said “I know what you did last summer”.

I knew who it was from and I just thought, “oh god, this is so lame. Are you serious?” It’s like us still quoting from Austin Powers. I was sooo scared. This will only work if I actually did something horrible last summer. Come on now.

I’m sure you all have your “I know what you did last summer” stories of your own.

We have no parents so we eat fast food all day.

Everybody talks about Beverly Hills 90210, The OC, Dawson’s creek, One Tree Hill, but what about Party of Five? Does anybody remember this show? Anybody?

The reason why I wanted to watch this show in the first place was because I found out Jennifer Love Hewitt is in it and I’m a huge fan. Yes, I said it. Don’t make fun of me! Sadly she is not in the first season, but who cares because the first season is super entertaining! Who needs Love Hewitt?

Mr. and Mrs. Salinger have died tragically in a car accident. Bailey, Julia, Claudia, and Owen are orphans and their new guadian is their 24 year old brother Charlie. Here are the best and worst bits of each character:

Charlie : Best episode: When he was caring for his baby brother Owen like a father. So cute and touching.

              Worst episode: When he cheated on Kirsten! Luckily I forgave him for that after two or   three episodes.

Bailey : Best episode: When he stuck to his principles on whether or not he should rat out on his friend to stay on the football team.

            Worst episode: The entire time he was with who-cares-about-morals-drug-addict-liar Jill! This went on for a long time. He wouldn’t even listen to Charlie’s advice. Where’s Brandon Walsh? He could give this guy a lecture or two about his ways.

Julia : Best Episode: When she thought it was a good idea to talk to the man that was at fault for killing their parents. Good for you Julia.

         Worst Episode: Uh, there were tons! Over half of the season Julia was acting like a brat! When she lent her house to be the party house without telling the rest of the family. When she pretended to like a guy so she can have sex and quickly lose her virginity. When she pretended she was twenty one. When she made a guy fall in love with her when he was way too old to be dating her (still pretending to be twenty one). When she didn’t want to talk to Charlie while he wanted to tell her that Owen was in hospital. There’s a lot more.

Claudia : Best Episode: The time she sold her voilin to help the family out with their financial issues.

               Worst Episode: She was acting like a brat and wouldn’t listen to Charlie. She did whatever she wanted even though Charlie is the legal guardian. She drove Charlie up the wall and she drove me way up the wall!

Owen : He’s so cute! All he does is eat, sleep and cry, so he’s great all the time. I hope he doesn’t grow up into a brat. Teenagers are such a handful. Tweens are annoying.

 Matthew Fox (Charlie) plays Jack in ‘Lost’. He looks really different with long hair. Neve Campbell is not hot. Hewitt is so much prettier. Sorry. No comparison. Campbell sucks at acting too. It’s really annoying whenever she does that one nervous laugh that isn’t really a laugh whenever she talks. Sounds more like a high pitched exhale. She does it when she’s nervous, casually talking, and when she’s close to tears. Enough!

 I love this show for it’s realism, unlike the crappy teenage stuff on today. I’ve only seen the first season and it’s great so far. The finale surprised me. I can’t wait for season two. Jennifer Love Hewitt will make her first appearances!!! Who needs her? Uh, if this show continues to keep Neve Campbell, this does.
