Home Alone

Then: “It would be so cool to be home alone and I could totally kick robber butts. Maybe I will befriend a questionable old dude in the neighborhood.”

Now: “HOW DO YOU FORGET YOUR FUCKING CHILD? ESPECIALLY THE SOCIOPATH MASOCHIST OF THE BUNCH.”

Say Anything

Then: “Lloyd Dobler is so dreamy.”

Now: “No, wait, that’s what a stalker does.”

Big

Then: “Aw, that’s so sweet!”

Now: “Um yeah that’s statutory rape and all kinds of wrong.”

Star Wars

Then: *the sound of angels singing and light saber fights*

Now: “Don’t think about the prequels. Don’t think about the prequels. Don’t think about the prequels.”

Weird Science

Then: “They got the girls that coordinate with their own hair colors! They have confidence now!”

Now: “Lisa is a pedophile and I think Chet is suffering from either PTSD or a mental disorder. That scene in the club is borderline racist, right??”

Back to the Future

Then: “Time travel looks amazing! Michael J. Fox is sooooo cute - MAKE YOUR MOM BACK UP.”

Now: “Time travel is still cool, as is the Delorean. Implied incestuous feelings and the insistence that Marty’s mother would watch her son grow and never connect his looks with the man she knew in high school briefly nor ever become suspicious when Calvin Klein became a household name is troubling, but not enough to make this movie bad.”

The Little Mermaid

Then: “Yay! Ariel married the Prince! Wooo! I WANNA BE A MERMAID!”

Now: “Oh, god, honey, you are 16 and have never had a conversation with this man. What the fuck are you doing?”
