It's Black Friday -- and if you're reading this now, that means you either skipped out on the shopping frenzy, or have already returned from the 4 a.m. sales. Or, like us, you're doing your shopping online (is that Amazon we see open in another window?). Not everyone is cut out for the holiday bargain hunt, but everyone likes a good movie shopping scene, right? Here are our picks for the most fun movie shopping sprees ever:
3. Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (1988)
When Bill and Ted bring their new historical friends to the mall, Beethoven discovers synthesizers (hey, it was the '80s!) and Genghis Khan builds a weapons stockpile in a sporting goods store. If you ever hung out at the mall as a kid and went a little wild in the candy store, this scene brings it all back!
2. Easter Parade (1948)
If all men knew how to shop like Fred Astaire, there would be lots of happy ladies in the world. This classic film opens with a musical sequence in which Astaire hunts for the perfect Easter gift for his dance-partner-turned-girlfriend. After an amazing department-store fashion show of ridiculous hats, he goes to a toy store for a stuffed animal -- and has to convince a little kid to give it up. This being a musical, he does it by dancing all over the store. It's the joy of shopping personified.
1. Pretty Woman (1990)
Is there a more satisfying scene in any movie than Julia Roberts' Rodeo Drive shopping spree? After she's thrown out of a high-end store for looking like the streetwalker she is, Roberts' character Vivian drowns her humiliation in designer clothes, then returns with her shopping bags: "You wouldn't wait on me. Big mistake. Big. Huge. " Earlier this year, British survey-takers voted it their all-time favorite movie moment -- and it's a shoo-in for the top of this list.
