Say what you want about Lindsay Lohan, many people already have, but she had a bright future in front of her and to be honest it’s not quite dead yet. She still has a chance to come back and make something of herself if she really wants to put in the work. That being said she’s had a few roles in her life that she’ll be remembered for no doubt and some that she might want to forget. So far as her fans go, yes she still has a good number of them, they firmly believe that she could come back anytime she wanted to.
I think I’ll let that go without comment and just agree that if she wanted to, she could.
This role came at a point in her career that could be called a down point when she kind of needed to take just anything to remain relevant. This scene in which she’s dressed like a nun is probably the most innocent scene she’s been in for quite a while. It also seems almost blasphemous if you’ve heard about her recent history, but then that’s just the opinion of a few people that might not have cared for the movie. It was kind of amusing though.
4. Herbie Fully Loaded
This was definitely before she started her downward spiral and when she still had enough charm to win people over at the theater. Plus, pairing her with the iconic Herbie gave Lohan a lot more credit to work with than she might have had on her own at that point. As a kid actor she was great but once she started growing up her appeal kind of went in a different way, and it wasn’t always this positive.
3. Freaky Friday
Anytime you can star in a move with Jamie Lee Curtis and watch her act like an adolescent can at least be called something amusing and even a bit comical. When a mother and daughter somehow switch bodies they’re forced to come to an understanding of just what the other one goes through before they finally get to switch back near the end. It’s a kind of eye-opener that kids and their parents should watch at least once.
2. The Parent Trap
The remake of the classic was something that a lot of people were more than willing to get behind since it was well done and featured a lot of great actors. Why anyone would split their children up is hard to imagine but given that they were twins and each parent wanted a child it’s at least somewhat feasible for a movie. But the odds of them meeting in real life would be astronomical it seems.
1. Mean Girls
It seems these kind of girls exist in every high school to some degree no matter where you go. They’re the trendy ones, the popular ones, the girls that somehow have their finger on the pulse of the school but still are far from the most intelligent beings walking the halls. Popularity sometimes means that you look good and sound good but are pretty empty where it counts, at least in the movies.
She could make a comeback. It could happen.
