Theater Thursday

It's that time again!
Around these parts Thursday means it's Theater Thursday! Each week I choose a movie that's out on dvd and feature it. Got a movie you love? Great! Post about it, then come back here and link up! Just remember, the only rule... it currently can't be in the theater. This week's featured movie is the 1992, Jersey Girl

Not to be confused with the more recent Jersey Girl, this movie stars Jami Gertz as Toby, a born and bred New Jersey girl. In the daytime she works as a daycare teacher and in the evenings can be found hanging out with her dad or 3 best girl friends. One night she starts thinking about what she wants in life and realizes she wants to have a life in NYC with a great New York man. 

Not knowing where or how to find a successful NYC man she asks her friends for advice. Their only suggestion... at a BMW dealership. So Toby heads out to land a man and along the way she bumps into Sal (Dylan McDermott). Sal, originally from NJ has worked his way up the corporate ladder and is now a successful tycoon living in Manhattan. When he meets Toby he realizes a few things he misses about Jersey but isn't willing to be embarrassed among his new set of friends. 
If you've never seen this movie, you are missing out on a true early 90's classic. It's funny, warm and a true testament to chick flicks. You won't regret it, even if it's for seeing the fashion!
