Summer Movie Project | Day 5 | Little Giants (1994)

This was probably the most influential movie of my young life. Being named after Michael Jordan, I guess I was destined to be a tomboy. Becky “The Icebox” O'Shea was my frickin hero. Not only was she a tomboy and got to play all the sports and eat like a slob, but she caught the interest of one of my very first crushes, Junior Floyd. Junior and Icebox is literally the first thing that I can remember shipping.

The movie itself, however, is a true underdog tale and I absolutely adore the family aspect of it.

Favorite Quotes:

Becky O'Shea: No. Why, do you? 
Junior Floyd: No. Eeww I just got that vomit taste in my mouth. 
Becky O'Shea: Come on, you gotta learn sometime. I mean if you wanna get a job and have kids and stuff. 
Junior Floyd: You can have kids without kissing… 
Becky O'Shea: Yeah, but you can’t get a job. You know, for scientific reasons and stuff. 
Junior Floyd: Well… become a teacher.”
