1997 was a big year for me. One of my other Guiltless Pleasures, Spice World, was released, I graduated high school, and the love of my life released a movie! Yes, you’re correct: Jennifer Love Hewitt, the star of Little Miss Millions and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, was all grown up and putting out movies. I first fell head over heels for J-Love (That’s what I call her) in her time on Party of Five. I wasn’t a particularly big fan of the show, but I was a huge fan of Ms. Hewitt. 1997 was when she really blew-up, starring in I Know What You Did Last Summer. Unfortunately, Trojan War wasn’t quite as successful.
Trojan War follows Brad Kimble, played by Will Friedle of Boy Meets World fame. Brad’s best friend is Leah (Hewitt), who is secretly in love with Brad. The problem is that Brad is in love with Brooke Kingsley (Marley Shelton). While helping Brooke study, Brad gets his one and only chance to have sex with Brooke, but he doesn’t have a condom. For the next hour, Brad gets into increasingly bizarre situations in his search of a condom. I know most of you just rolled your eyes at that description.
PS. Jennifer, if you’re reading this, I know you and I are both married, but we can still run away together.
