The 30-Day Baseball Card Challenge (Day 15)

Day 15: One of your favorite cards from the 2010s
Yesterday, I posted about a non-sports card, and today I'll do the same. As I mentioned, a big part of my life is based on entertainment - movies, music, and TV shows. My coworkers would probably tell you at length how annoying I can be when I quote random shows that none of them seem to know.

Tara Reid hasn't made the best choices in her life, but she's had some good movies. Underappreciated, in my opinion, are two of my favorite movies, Van Wilder and Josie and the Pussycats. Of course, she was also in the American Pie movies as well as a couple dozen extremely forgettable comedies and horror films. She was able to play the cute girl role pretty well, though I'm not claiming she was the best. She was acting during a teen-movie renaissance of sorts, with a pretty talented group of peers.

I think I should pull out my DVDs and cue up Van Wilder tomorrow night!


  1. She had a small but pivotal role in The Big Lebowski

  2. I always thought she was easy on the eyes... but never considered her a great actress. With that being said... The Big Lebowski is a classic. And I wouldn't have a problem with watching the American Pie movies again.

    P.S. Cool card.

  3. She is (was?) cute. And it wasn't just about the physical looks. Her personality always seemed cheerful and caring. Or maybe that was just acting? But I really enjoyed what she did in Van Wilder and Josie and the Pussycats. Lebowski was good too, it's just not my type of movie.
