Overnight Delivery

I am a sucker for sap. If someone looked through my CD and DVD collection without knowing who it belonged to, they'd probably swear it belonged to a woman or a gay guy (so much for that John Wayne image). With Reese Witherspoon's new movie Just Like Heaven quietly making some waves (an anti-Million Dollar Baby?), it is time that I recommend a Witherspoon blast from the past that is an undiscovered, but sappy, gem: Overnight Delivery.

The movie stars Witherspoon and Paul Rudd. Without giving too much away, Witherspoon's stripper coed character Ivy Miller helps Trips (Rudd) get even with his cheating girlfriend by overnighting a nasty breakup package. Once upon a time, this movie was on Showtime and HBO constantly. Now, you are lucky to find it on DVD. If you are at the local Blockbuster and can't decide on a movie, Overnight Delivery comes highly recommended from Mrs. Jib and I. Even if it has a schmaltzy ending.

Next embarrassing Jib media recommendation: Cutting Edge. Stay tuned!
