Drew's Best Roles

After a few requests by my wife, we watched the documentary My Date With Drew that tells the story of an indie film maker with a personal challenge of getting a date with Drew Barrymore in 30 days or less using no more than about 1000 dollars.

This marginally entertaining film has prompted a top 5...

Top 5 roles for Drew Barrymore.

5. Casey Becker in Scream
4. Danielle De Barbarac in Ever After
Lindsey Meeks in Fever Pitch
Julia in the Wedding Singer
1. Gertie in ET: The Extra-Terrestrial

Feel free to list your own top 5 roles for Barrymore, it's hard when your first film gives you the role of a life-time.

I always enjoyed her in The Wedding Singer, which is a good Sandler comedy as well.

Art said...

That list is pretty much on the spot for me. I think #1 and #2 are her best performances.

Anna said...

I have to add Never Been Kissed which I think is pretty funny with David Arquette. Great choices.

Phillip said...

I've always been fond of the 1986 TV version of Babes in Toyland with her and Richard Mulligan. Classic stuff!

I just think she's adorable. I managed to miss all her "I'm not a kid, I'm a slutty teen" films, thank goodness...but I've enjoyed most everything I've seen her in.

That's a pretty good list. And she was pretty good with Fever Pitch.

I liked her in the one with all of the first dates "20 first Dates"?

5. Gertie- ET: The Extra Terrestrial
4. Penny- Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
3. Danielle De Barbarac- Ever After
2. Casey Becker- Scream
1. Beverly Donofrio- Riding in Cars with Boys

Scream has one of the best openings I have ever seen in a movie, but Drew's heartfelt and career defining performance in RiCwB takes the top spot for me.
