Hello friends! Today happens to be my birthday so I’m taking today off from work as part of my birthday present to myself 😀
A few years back I chose a birthday-related movie to mark the occasion, which was David Fincher’s excellent-but-underrated thriller The Game. I highly recommend that if you haven’t seen it already.
Well, for today, I thought I chose five memorable movie birthday scenes which happens to be from five of my favorite films.
Happy Birthday Ashley Wilkes!
The first one I thought of right away is this one from Gone with the Wind. It’s the celebration of Ashley’ birthday where Scarlett O’Hara suddenly showed up as everyone was singing ‘Jolly good fellow’… wearing the sexiest red outfit hand-picked by Rhett Butler himself. If you’ve seen the film you know why it’s such an uncomfortable scene but definitely a memorable one.
Happy Birthday Bruce Wayne!
Great soiree and Bruce looks dapper in this tux… too bad Bryan Mills, er Ra’s Al Ghul has to be such a party pooper!!
Happy Birthday Bilbo Baggins!
Life in the Shire sounds so awesome! The hobbits sure knows how to party, and having Gandalf the Great supplying the fireworks entertainment can’t be beat!
An Unexpected Guest at Honey’s Birthday
I LOVE, LOVE this scene from Notting Hill. It’s one of my favorite rom-coms ever (leave it to the Brits to make a rom-com nary of schmaltzy scenarios). Emma Chambers as Hugh Grant’s kid sister is pure comedic gold!
Another continuation of that scene that’s equally hilarious is this one with the always so reliable Hugh Bonneville.
A Birthday Toast from a Count
Well lookie here… two of mankind’s saviors in one party 😀 Jim Caviezel (two years before he was cast in The Passion of the Christ) as the mysterious Count giving a then 18-year-old Henry Cavill on his birthday. I wonder if that’s how he later became Man of Steel? 😉 I actually whispered to my husband during this scene that Cavill should’ve become Superman when he grows up. Yes I know, I should be a casting agent, ahah.
Well, hope you enjoyed these clips, folks! Kindly leave a comment, and better yet, share away 😀
Feel free to supply your own favorite Birthday scene in the comments.
