Whatta Man Monday — Reality Bites Edition!!

Happy Monday, chickies!!

Last week was our first time trying out the new voting system and we got a big response!!

David Beckham TOTALLY whooped Brad Pitt in the Hot Dad Edition — 114 votes to 17.  Sorry Brad, but we’re over you.  Whomp whomp.

This week, I am going back to the angsty, flannel clad 90′s…are you ready?

The Reality Bites Edition!!


Am I the only one who thought this movie was completely and totally the best thing ever?  It “spoke” to me.


I mean honestly…the movie came out when I was 14.  What a drama queen.

Anyways.  If you remember, Lelaina (Winona Ryder) had to choose between grungy, slacker Troy (Ethan Hawke) or slick but sweet filmmaker Michael (Ben Stiller).


I realize that this may seem like a no brainer.  If you would have asked me back in 1994…




Totally obvious.


But my 33 year old self begs to differ.

Ol’ Troy has not aged so well.  (WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THAT HAIR????)



Ben Stiller went on to become Zoolander…


And Ethan Hawke was Hamlet.

So let’s hear it ladies…who gets YOUR VOTE??  Use the handy widget below, but feel free to leave a comment.  We always love to hear your thoughts!!

    My high school self says Troy for sure. Oh and I *totally* loved this movie too! Have it and the soundtrack still. But yeah, Ethan Hawke hasn’t aged well. But then again, Ben Stiller? Really? Um no. So I guess 38 yr old Norma doesn’t vote! LOL
