It’s cold outside friends, so let’s lament summer with the wintery romantic comedy tale, 1996’s Beautiful Girls. While Ted Demme’s oft-dramatic, coming-of-age film is plagued with actors who all look a little too old to be 20-somethings, there is plenty of genuine adult-panic mixed in with its easy-listening rock and roll soundtrack, misogyny and very questionable hair and fashion stylings. We won’t all agree that Timothy Hutton is an adorable romantic lead, or whether his relationship with Natalie Portman’s precocious youngster is sweet or super creepy, but hopefully we can all agree that Martie wears the shit out of the jean-overalls-over-sweater-and-turtleneck ensemble.
