For today’s Manic Monday, it’s a popcorn bonanza!
Who can forget the iconic 1980’s classic Real Genius? I loved the movie growing up and I still think it’s one of the best roles Val Kilmer ever had!
Pinky also loved the movie and met Gabriel Jaret and now… They’re friends! Nice! That’s the Pinkster!
Check out this weeks Manic Monday below!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here thinking about what a small world it is. Not long ago I was looking at pictures from some red carpet event and noticed Gabriel Jarret (from the iconic ‘80s movie, Real Genius) had been in attendance.
I was so upset I’d missed him because I LOVED Real Genius growing up. There aren’t many movies that can “popcorn” a house – it was, well, genius! Val Kilmer was hysterical in this film and Gabriel Jarret played Mitch, Val’s nerdy roommate.
As a total nerd lover, I had a wee bit of a crush on poor little Mitch, so when I saw he was around at events, I was just dying to meet him!
Flash forward to my meeting my future husband, Keith, and guess who was his best friend growing up? That’s right, Gabriel Jarret!
Didn’t I mention it was a small world? Not only was Gabe in our wedding, but he’s a dear friend, as well.
Funny how things work out! After Real Genius, Gabe stayed busy in films like Apollo 13
but my fave role of his still would have to be Real Genius. If you’ve never seen this endearing and fun film, I strongly urge you to check it out.
