If you grew up in the 90’s, you will most likely know about the blonde, original bitmoji creator that is Lizzie McGuire. I thought the TV programme was so fun and then came the movie and I was an absolute goner. I fell straight in love. Not only did I fall in love with the film, I fell in love with city that it was set in: Rome.
I know what you’re thinking; she’s obsessed with Rome! I probably am, I really did leave a piece of heart there. I loved it so much and so the first thing I did when I returned to London was watch this movie.
It has definitely become a little habit of mine to watch movies that have been set where I’ve just been, and it really is so much fun! You get to point out the places you’ve just seen and reminisce about what you’ve just experienced.
Anyways, here is a fun little post that I put together about some of the things I thought when I re-watched the Lizzie McGuire movie.
1. Why did matt hate her so much?
Honestly it’s so strange how a brother could dislike his sister that much, maybe it’s because I don’t have brothers but still come on!
2. What kind of obsessive weirdo remembers outfits underneath a grad gown?!
I knew Kate was mean (even though she does good in the end), but she obviously loved Lizzie to remember her outfits!
3. Why would they ask the treasurer to do the speech?
I don’t know… This just never made sense to me.
4. Emosh moment at the airport
That moment when Lizzie’s parents are fussing over her and when her Mum runs back and gives her a huge cuddle. All the emotions!
5. Those cute moments on the plane with Gordo
How fricking adorable were they! I love plane journeys as it is, this just made is 100% cuter.
6. I forgot how sassy lizzie’s alter ego was [lols]
Possibly my favourite thing ever about re-watching this movie was re-discovering how hilarious Lizzie’s alter-ego was.
7. Did I really fancy Paolo?
Hmmm. I really don’t trust my judgement anymore…
8. Ethan giving Gordo a pep talk
Got to be one of the sweetest things. Ethan is just such an entertaining character anyways but this was endearing.
9. Gordo gives himself up for Lizzie
Why was Gordo so flipping adorable?!
10. How did Lizzie’s parents afford the airfare?
From what I remember from the show, Lizzie’s parents were not well off so this always baffled me. And also if I was missing my sister on a school trip, I don’t think my parents would have ever forked out for a plane ticket for me!
11. The Outfit.
Anyone else desperately wanted to have a flowy skirt that magically turned into trousers, whilst owning the stage and having the audience eat out of the palm of your hand? No?
Just me then…
12. The kiss.
*excuse the spoilers*
I think the movie ended perfectly, with Lizzie finding out that Paolo was a d*ck and Gordo is actually a sweetheart, and nothing made me happier than watching them share a sexy little smooch on the balcony.
All together now – ‘Awwww!’
Let me know if this post inspired any of you to watch this movie again, because lets face it – it is an absolute classic.
And this is what dreams are made of. (Sorry not sorry!)
