I really have tried to check out of this hotel

Streep Week continues with this gem from one of my all-time favourite movies, Postcards from the Edge (1990). The song Meryl performs ("I'm Checkin' Out") was nominated for an Academy Award that year.

Unfortunately, the clip ends before you can see Meryl really let loose and have some fun with the stage band--Canada's Blue Rodeo. And don't worry about the darkness at the beginning... that's how it's shot.

Shirley rocked in that movie. I love it too.

Loved that movie. The scene with Shirley and the blender in the morning. Priceless.

I like when they find Private Ryan at the end.

Is that why you are always listening to that song "Hotel California" too?

The book was funnier and darker. But I wasn't dissapointed - Streepy did a great job.

I love Ms. Streep, she always gets slagged cause she does so many accents. I think she is amazing.

Sell it girl! Sell it!

I just remember Dennis Quaid walking around in a towel.
