Sometimes all I want to do is curl up in my cozy couch with a glass of wine and watch some good movies. Its essential to designate some time to be me-time, especially when Daddy’s out of town. Its about time we put on some good flicks on that new 75-inch HD flat screen TV Daddy just bought you.
Other than the latest Hollywood releases, there are several classic Sugar movies that I always go back to. Here is a list of my favourite Sugar movies that’ll get you inspired for the hustle:
How To Marry A Millionaire(1953)
Schatze Page, Loco Dempsey and Pola are three women on a mission: They all want to marry a millionaire. To accomplish this task, they move into a fancy New York City apartment and begin courting the city’s elite. They pool physical and monetary resources for a millionaire man hunt. They have no problem meeting rich men, but unfortunately most of them turn out to be creeps or cons. Eventually they must decide: Is a life of luxury more important to them than finding true love?
This thriller details the troubled life of a Manhattan prostitute stalked by one of her tricks. Investigating the disappearance of his friend, rural Pennsylvania private detective John Klute (Donald Sutherland) follows a lead to seek out a call in New York City. The call girl is Bree Daniels (Jane Fonda), an aspiring actress who turns tricks for the cash and to be free of emotional bondage.
Bree is a skilled, intelligent, cynical, and personally troubled New York call girl who does not, for once, have a heart of gold. She never feels anything when she’s with a man, she tells her shrink, but she does experience a sense of professional pride when she’s able to satisfy a client. As Bree becomes involved in Klute’s search and realizes that she is in danger, she reluctantly falls in love with Klute, despite her wish to remain unattached to any man. When she finally comes face to face with the killer, however, she is forced to reconsider her detached urban life.
In this modern update on Cinderella, a prostitute and a wealthy businessman fall hard for one another, forming an unlikely pair. While on a business trip in L.A., Edward Lewis(Richard Gere), who makes a living buying and breaking up companies, got lost driving winds up in the red light district in Hollywood Boulevard. He then spots a gorgeous hooker named Vivian(Julia Roberts) and asks for directions. Soon, Edward hires Vivian to stay with him for the weekend, the two get closer, only to discover there are significant hurdles to overcome as they try to bridge the gap between their very different worlds.
Twenty-something aspiring yet struggling artist Mirabelle (Claire Danes) is finding her new life in Los Angeles not quite what she was expecting. She is barely eking out a living to keep up with even the minimum payment on her credit card and student loans as a clerk at the women’s evening gloves counter at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. She dates underachieving musician Jeremy (Jason Schwartzman). Her workaday existence suddenly becomes more exciting when she meets the rich, charming Ray (Steve Martin), a well-to-do customer at the store. Though Mirabelle’s life appears to take an enchanted turn as Ray begins courting her, Ray’s fear of commitment threatens to doom the relationship.
Pricesless is a French film about a woman who has never had much trouble choosing between love or money tries to teach a man the tricks of the trade in this sly romantic comedy. Irène (Audrey Tautou) loves nice things and lives comfortably by being arm candy to wealthy men twice her age. In Biarritz with her elderly provider to celebrate her birthday, Irene slips down to the hotel bar when he falls asleep on her. She mistakes Jean (Gad Elmaleh), a poor bartender, for a potential client and spends the night with him. The next morning, Irène realizes her mistake and leaves, but poor Jean is smitten with her. Later, when a rich dowager mistakes Jean for a veteran gigolo, Irène agrees to tutor him in the art of fleecing wealthy lovers.
