Drew Barrymore Movies

Updated on August 25, 2014

© Sarah Masson 2011

We first took notice of a young Drew Barrymore in the movie E.T. She became one of Hollywood's most recognized child actors. She went on to star in many romantic comedy films. She's always a joy to watch.

E.T - Her first major role. This is a classic family movie about a gorgeous alien who is known as E.T. (extra-terrestrial) He has a special bond with a boy and his little sister Gertie (Drew Barrymore) It's a great film.

Boys On The Side - One of the more sad movies that Drew has been in. It tells the story of three very different women who go on a cross-country journey together. Through some funny and tragic circumstances an unlikely friendship in born. I love this movie, I usually cry at the end.

The Wedding Singer - One of my favourites, you can't go wrong with the wedding singer. I used this movie in my hub for funny movie duos. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler are perfect together. This is a hilarious movie with awesome characters and great music.

Ever After - This is a cinderella story like no other. It still involves the mean step mum and step sisters but this movie is fantastic. Drew Barrymore plays her part perfectly. A beautiful love story about accepting people for who they are.

Never Been Kissed - Another funny romantic comedy about Josie (Drew) going back to school undercover to report the experience and bringing back memories from her own highschool days.

Charlie's Angels - Three women played by Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu are know as Charlie's Angels. They work as private investigators for Charlie. They get into all sorts of funny situations. The action mixed with the comedy really works well together.

Donnie Darko - Another of Drew Barrymore's more serious roles, Donnie Darko is a dark thriller-fantasy movie. It's a very different movie, very unique.

Riding In Cars With Boys - This is an awesome movie about Beverly (Drew) who at 15 years old gets drunk and sleeps with a boy named Ray (Steve Zahn.) She finds out that she is pregnant and contemplates having an abortion but can't bring herself to do it. They get married and have the baby. It shows the troubles they go through being so young with a child.

Duplex - This movie is so ridiculously funny, I never fail to enjoy it. Starring Drew Barrymore with the one and only Ben Stiller. This is about a couple who move into their perfect place which is a duplex, with a lovely old lady living upstairs. They soon find out that it's not so perfect living there with such an annoying old lady. They plan to kill her, it is so funny the things they go through, a definite favourite.

50 First Dates - Once again Drew teams up with Adam Sandler for more of their perfect chemistry. Henry meets Lucy in a cafe and they immediately hit it off. They plan to meet again for breakfast the next morning but when Henry arrives, Lucy has no idea who he is. He is then informed that a year ago Lucy was in a car accident and suffers from a form of amnesia. Lucy believes every day is her fathers birthday which was the day of the accident so her father and brother re-enact it every day for her. This is about the lengths Henry will go to for love.

      Okay, I can only answer based on my own ponsreal experience, and the weight and age entered correlates with the time that I was diagnosed and in treatment for anorexia nervosa. (about a year ago)age: 16height 5'5weight: 115 (at my healthiest)The first time I experienced dizziness and fatigue to the point of blacking out was around the beginning of my disorder when I first started restricting. I had lost about 7 lbs, and was severely dehydrated, although not yet malnourished. I weighed about 108 lbs.My family doctor diagnosed me with anorexia when I lost more than 85% of my ideal body weight (101 lbs)I was admitted into the hospital and the hospitals eating disorder program when I had lost more than 65% of my ibw, and was at my lowest. (79 lbs)I was released from the hospital and into an inpatient ed program when my blood was stabilized and my weight was deemed sufficient to leave the intensive care unit. (89 lbs)I was *medically stable* at 74% of my ibw (94lbs. This meant that while still anorexic, I was at a high enough weight where I was no longer required by law to be in an intensive care facility.The treatment center was comfortable with releasing me at 82% of my ibw (103 lbs) on a weight gain plan to be followed at home while attending an intensive outpatient program. at age 16 I was 5'5.5 and I believe I shrunk about .5 of an inch during the entire ordeal. I am currently 17 years old, 108 lbs, 5'5 and still attending therapy and nutrition appointments in addition to school. the disease and symptoms varies by the individual and the type of disorder he/she is dealing with. hope I was helpful and good luck with your book

      MLM works and is the vehicle rpslosnibee for helping many people on the road to find financial independence, typically within 2-5 years.There is, however, much confusion and misunderstanding concerning this business model. A pyramid scheme has no real product so commissions are based on bringing new people into the scheme who in turn also bring new people into the scheme. It's usually the people at the top that get the most while those at the bottom get very little. Eventually all pyramid schemes collapse because there is no real product being sold.MLM, on the other hand, usually has a very real product that is sold either by retail or through members personal purchases (usually both). Members are encouraged to build a network of distributors to market the product.In MLM you can earn more than those at the top if you apply some effort.In a pyramid scheme you can never earn more than those above you, so when investigating an MLM company see if you can find out if there are people earning more than their sponsors, (this is the crucial test to weed out pyramid schemes)
