About

Pfeiffer Pfilms and Meg Movies is a celebration of all things Michelle Pfeiffer and Meg Ryan.

I’m a lover of all kinds of film, whether it be a western, a production from the classic Hollywood era, or an obscure 1970’s road movie, but since the late 1980s the films of Meg and Michelle have been very special to me.

The happiest years of my life ran parallel to the peak years of their careers, so it’s nice to be able to pay a small tribute to these two incredibly talented performers and the memories they’ve provided.

Pfeiffer films and Meg movies don’t contain CGI, 3D or many special effects. Just intelligent scripts, wonderful acting and unforgettable characters.

I hope some of you care about them as much as I do.

  1. Perfect, you’ve left me speechless ..and yes Michelle is the true meaning of perfection and we hope for one last (or more) great role …I just wanted to say that I’m a 19 years old girl and I never searched for older movies before Michelle’s, like I’ve seen almost every movie that she was in and I searched movies from ‘88 like 5 years before I was born like ‘Married to the Mob…’ and I truly enjoyed every second of watching her …and yet yeees she’s the greatest actress that ever existed and the true definition of beauty.
    And thanks for this wonderful site!

  2. Thanks for the blog. It feels good to know there are people who appreciate intelligent, meaningful and great-acting movies nowadays. It feels better to know people love Meg Ryan as much or more than I do. No one else in my circle understands my crazy obsession with this lady. The majority of people at my age (as far as I know) don’t even KNOW of her. Kind of sad, really!

  3. Wow! you are the first person I’ve met who likes Meg Ryan as much as I do.
    I’ve searched and watched most of her works, from the early part in Innerspace, to the height of her career with When Harry Met Sally, When a Man Loves a Woman, Courage Under Fire, etc. coming to the (seemingly) recent (very unpopular) part like My Mom’s New boyfriend. I can totally understand your fascination with her. There’s just something so compelling in every part she did. Her recent works just doesn’t feel like Meg-Ryan any more. I don’t know, I’m kinda mourning for the loss of her brilliance. I wish I were there at the peak of her career so I’d be able to look forward to every movie she did and savour them. I discovered her too late and then I discovered her downfall too quickly.

  4. Paul,

    It’s freaky to find you, I will probably be ripping your site off regularly. I am new to Blogs and understand content specific to you should be “linked”……I have only done this once.

    Thanks for your one stop Meg / Michelle shrine, hope you don’t mind our using her for a very dark role.

  5. Happy 2013, Paul! It was wonderful to hear from you. I will definitely be stopping by now that I’m settled. Love the recent posts!

  6. I’m a fan of Pfeiffer and need to be a little more educated in Ryan’s career – this seems like a pretty good site to fill that need!

  7. Thanks for your comment friend… please do venture into instagram land… it is quite fun and so easy … hope to see you there soon.
    I will maintain the blog with updates on the store… and a new website up soon… hope this finds you well…

  8. Just started reading your blog. Great stuff. Amazing to think how many of Meg and Michelle’s films I’ve seen.

  9. What a wonderful site! Love them both and you’re doing a great job highlighting their most awesome careers! Kudos!

  10. I’m a fan of Michelle Pfeiffer and Meg Ryan too. More Ryan than Pfeiffer.
    And I am generally not a fan of CGI & 3D, special effects et al (a few exceptions are there of course) and prefer intelligent scripts and superb acting skills myself. Not a fan of -here today gone tomorrow- movies, I like timeless films that age well, From Gone With The Wind, to A Clockwork Orange, to Age of Innocence to The Reader. Good Movies that go on forever beyond time.

  11. Hey Paul,
    I just want to say thanks for showing some love on my blog buddy. Thanks for the likes and the comments. Although I don’t consider myself an established “writer,” per say, it really means a lot when someone takes the time to show that my words meant something to them. I am aware that on WordPress people follow me just so I follow them back. They don’t read my stuff or visit my page at all. I take the time to read their stuff, but there’s no reciprocation. You have good integrity. Wherever you are in this world, I wish you nothing but good fortune and happiness. Peace.

  12. Hey Paul. Yeah, Michelle Pfeiffer is a stunning beauty, even in her later years. Those eyes just get to you.

    In the movie “Scarface,” Tony Montana mentions her eyes…says they remind him of a tiger. She definitely has that look that can stop a man in his tracks.

    Do you remember a very young, unknown Meg Ryan in “Top Gun?” She played the wife of Goose (played by Anthony Edwards, back when he had hair).

  13. Hi, thanks so much for liking my post “Enchanted (the movie)” and for commenting and stopping by my blog. Your blog is amazing! Please feel free to stop in again. You’re always welcome my new friend. Betty

  14. I’d love to hear your thoughts on ‘Frankie and Johnny’ !

  15. Great idea for a blog! I am definitely following this one 🙂

  16. Two awesome actresses! You have good taste, fellow blogger!

  17. By far, my favorite Meg Ryan film is “Kate and Leopold.” The on-screen chemistry between Meg and Hugh Jackman is electrifying. It is a great romantic comedy,and showcases the talents of both stars. I like the time-travel threme.

    My favourite Michelle Pfeiffer film is “Love Field.” I like it because the last part of the film was filmed in Richmond across the street from Berryman United Methodist Church. My dad retired from the ministry from that church. (The church members fed the cast and crew, I believe). Also, I liked the build-up of the romance between Michelle and her co-star.

    HI Paul. My copy of “Addicted to Love” arrived today. I’ve started watching but had to pause the DVD player to post you a note. It’s been many years since I saw it in theatre, and I had forgotten how every minute delicious this film is. As I type Sam is just now hearing his Dear John letter. Never mind that I’d sell both children and crawl across broken glass for Matthew Broderick, I will be able to share more coherent thoughts in a day or two.

  19. Nice blog you have here Paul! I like both Meg and Michelle, an important presence in a lot of very good films, they gave some some unforgettable performances (Scarface, Ladyhawke, The Age of Innocence, When Harry Met Sally, Courage Under Fire, City of Angels…just to name a few). Keep up the good work 🙂

  20. Just wanted to share the fact that I’m currently watching When Harry Met Sally. Love this film! You totally own it, Paul!! 😊

  21. I like both Pfeiffer and Ryan. Going through your linked Pfeiffer-Ryan posts I discovered that I’ve watched at least one of the two films you’ve written about but never both. So, what film couple would your recommend?

  22. Hi Paul, I’m going to feature the evolution of the femme fetale on November 13 and wondered if you would do a conversation starter for me regarding Michelle Pfeiffer as a 80s/90s example? I’m looking for a paragraph or two is all–a few key films and how her beauty is a source of power and what is it about her that is a magnet for men? Interested?

  23. Hi Paul

    Would you believe that just at the same moment you left a comment on my blog I put on a movie that was in my planner and who pops up on the screen only Meg Ryan, coincidence or what 😉 It’s called My Moms New Boyfriend, I hope it’s good!

  24. This is for sure my most favorite blog I have ever come across! Love their movies, probably have seen every single one of them million times. Never gets old 🙂

  25. My sister would definitely love your blog, Paul! She’s a big fan of Meg Ryan ❤ – Some of the movies here – I wasn't even aware of. Thanks 😀

  26. Michelle Pfeiffer has had one of the most complete acting careers of anyone alive today. She’s the quintessential leading lady. Pfeiffer could be really funny as well as sexy & seductive. She was incredibly gorgeous and without a doubt one of the most beautiful actresses that was ever in front of a movie camera. I think Meg Ryan’s range was extremely limited in comparison. See The Fabulous Baker Boys, Batman Returns, The Age of Innocence and Into the Night for proof of Michelle’s acting abilities as well as her stunning beauty.

  27. There are some actresses whose beauty is amplified to such a degree on the movie screen that people who have only seen them on dvd may never understand the full force of the attraction. i have only experienced this golden screen sensation twice. The first time was seeing Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief. The second was Michelle Pfeiffer in Married to the Mob.

  28. Thank you for liking and commenting on my own humble blog regarding “Saint Vincent”. I always appreciate the feedback.

    My own personal favorite Michelle Pfeiffer film is “Married to the Mob”, which also features some outstanding comedy from Mercedes Ruehl.

    Best wishes for your continuing blogging success!

    Sincerely,

    Jay Pochapin

  29. Thanks for the likes and the comments on my little blog – love both of these ladies!

    Nice of you to drop your thoughts on The Daughter into my film review site. You have chosen two of the finest exemplars of the cinematic arts to follow on your site. Well done. I will try to see more of their work and follow your page.

  31. This a pretty neat blog. I wish I could do one about Lady Gaga but I might be stealing your thunder if I did!

  32. So did it! Organised my own little blogathon… read on if you are interested in joining in the fun! https://weegiemidget.wordpress.com/2016/05/11/announcing-the-darlin-dallasers-blogathon/

  33. I re-watched “Top Gun” the other night… any thoughts on Meg Ryan’s scenes?

  34. I’ve always thought Michelle Pfeiffer was terribly overrated. Don’t get me wrong, she’s good, but come on! By contrast, I think Meg Ryan is consistently great, but often underappreciated.

  35. Hi… I always enjoy reading your posts and the “comments” around movies so I’d like to nominate you for a Sunshine Blogger Award: https://thoughtsallsorts.wordpress.com/2016/09/07/my-first-and-im-honoured/

  36. Hi Paul…I’ve come across a movie (looks obscure) called Restoration with….tadaaaa…Meg Ryan. Have you seen it? Is it any good? It even won 2 Oscars. I’ve never heard of it before. I thought you’d be the best person to ask… 😉

  37. Hello there! I have nominated you for the Mystery Blogger Award. You probably have been nominated before. See: https://dbmoviesblog.wordpress.com/2017/02/10/mystery-blogger-award-2017/

  38. Hi Maggie…I wanted to reply to your comment from last night and did you know….your post from yesterday has vanished? Are you ok? Hope it doesn’t mean you had such a bad evening with Jack….

    • Darling, last night was divine. Champagne, roses and a candlelit dinner for two. I swapped the leopard-print blouse and Kohl eyeliner for something more demure; high heels and a little back dress in China silk by New York designer Zang Toi. Boy it really rained on Goldilocks Melanie’s parade when she tried to gatecrash our soiree in her slinky cocktail dress and long black gloves. But, she might as well face it… three’s a crowd!

  39. Hi there,

    Its now official, congrats- you’ve been tagged in my post today x

  40. I still have to see Meg Ryan in “The Women.” How time flies.

  41. Hey there, The Russia House (your gal Michelle and Sean Connery) on Finnish TV this weekend.. one to watch for sure but need a second opinion from an unbiased Pfeiffer Pfantaticxx

  42. Paul, Paul, Paul….what am I going to do with you? I was just about to compliment you on that Black Oleander piece and poof! it is gone…Great post by the way. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
