10 Best Drew Barrymore Movies
The 10 best Drew Barrymore movies are so eclectic they have nothing in common but the actress herself. The child super-star and grown-up movie maven has tackled nearly every kind of role.
- “50 First Dates.” Drew Barrymore teams up with Adam Sandler for the second time in a rom-com about a girl that’s can’t make new memories. Solidifying her sweetheart status, “50 First Dates” proves Drew Barrymore is the kind of girl you can’t help but fall in love with, even if she has a severe mental disorder.
- “My Date with Drew.” A nobody working in Los Angeles tries to use the six-degrees of separation theory to win a date with Drew Barrymore. You know that contact high you get when you’re playing wingman for a friend and he actually scores? Magnify that by 100.
- “Donnie Darko.” There’s not enough time to world to explain exactly what this movie is or why it’s so good. Maybe that’s why it is go great.
- “Charlie’s Angels.” Comic god Bill Murray provides the laughs while hotties Drew Barrymore , Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz run around fighting bad guys. There was a plot, but we got too caught up playing marry-love-kill to remember the details. And by the way, marry Drew Barrymore , love Lucky and kill Cameron.
- “The Wedding Singer.” Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler’s first pairing uses the 80s as a backdrop. As far as romantic comedies go you could do a lot worse. In fact any comedy that can work in a grandmother’s rendition of “Rapper’s Delight” get two thumbs up.
- “Scream.” The franchise pumped fresh blood into the horror movie genre. Drew Barrymore is only in the first fifteen minutes of the movie and still manages to steal the show. That’s mad skills.
- “The Amy Fisher Story.” Any Fisher. What else is there to say.
- “Poisin Ivy.” Bad girls just don’t get any better than Drew Barrymore’s rendition of Ivy. Dozens of other actresses have tried to ditch their little girl images with a sexually risqué role but this turn actually worked.
- “Firestarter.” Strange experiments, secret government agencies and a freaky powerful nine year old. Drew Barrymore is still young and adorable in this flick, just don’t get her angry. You wouldn’t like her when she’s angry.
- “E.T. The Extrra-Terrestrial.” A homesick alien tries to find his way home. A young pig-tailed Drew Barrymore tries to pry her way into America’s heart. Looks like they both succeeded.
