Miami may not be like Los Angeles or New York, cities where movies are continually being filmed on every corner. But Miami has certainly had its fair share of filming. Maybe it was chosen for the plot of the movie and maybe it was chosen for its location (it’s difficult to film a beach scene in Nebraska). Whatever the reason, Miami’s presence in the movies has let other Florida cities reach out and shyly ask for an autograph. The following is a short list of Miami-born cinematic moments:
From Justin to Kelly: I don’t understand how Miami surpassed all other cities in the United States for the rituals in this movie. Seriously, the bidding war for this must have lived up to the bidding at the Olympics or the Super Bowl. A movie with American Idol first winner and runner-up, From Justin to Kelly it was enough to turn anyone from nausea to vomiting. Yes, it was so serious seriously. It would provide a lengthy discussion of the plot, but there really wasn’t one. Suffice it to say that the story line involved little more than singing and flapping limbs with the same choreographed routine … although, in one scene, they danced with towels. That, in a word, was magical.
there’s something about mary: One of the funniest movies to ever hit the screen, this movie features Cameron Diaz as Mary, a girl men were willing to go to great lengths to impress. These great efforts included stalking, spying, impersonating, and donning a fake British accent. Ben Stiller plays Ted, a clumsy but charming man in love with Mary; a man who wants to impress her but seems a little less psychotic than the rest of the peers. A definite success, this film had unforgettable scenes, with moments of out loud laughter. It also made us look at hair gel differently forever.
Scarface: At one point during the 1980s, almost every teenager had a poster of this movie on their bedroom wall. It’s a story about Tony Montana, played by Al Pacino, who arrives in Florida as a Cuban refugee. After becoming a gangster, as a result of the cocaine boom in the 1980s, he rises to the top of Miami’s organized crime world, only to fall again. Originally released with little enthusiasm, Scarface Since then it has become a cult classic and one of the most recognized films ever made; He has always left movie fans considering him one of their little friends.
Bad boys: The movie that left us all wondering what “will you do when they come for you” Bad boys features Martin Lawrence and Will Smith as two Miami police detectives. After $ 120 million worth of drugs are stolen, the two detectives have the option of getting the drugs back or losing their jobs. They fight and quarrel with each other, but their love for each other is also genuine, leading this duo to be compared to those of Lethal weapon Y Starsky and hutch. Although this movie is implausible, as police dramas tend to be, it is entertaining, fast-paced, and it’s hard to miss the action. This movie spawned a sequel, which was also shot in Miami.
Any sunday: One of the most action-packed football movies, Any sunday includes a star-studded cast of professional actors and athletes. With a portion of the film shot in Miami, the Orange Bowl was disguised as the playground of a fictional soccer team, the Miami Sharks. Al Pacino plays an intense coach while Cameron Diaz plays an owner, and not a very nice one at that. The football movie differs a lot from other poignant ones like Rudy gold The replacements. Instead, it shows the inner workings and politics involved in managing a professional team.
