My Top Ten Kelly Jo Minter Movies

Happy Birthday to Kelly Jo Minter, who turns 49 today! What’s that? Did I just hear a bunch of you say “Who?”.

Kelly Jo Minter! YES! She’s in two of my all-time favorite movies! She seemed to often play a hooker or “drug addict”… But she was a cutie & a perfectly good actress so I don’t know why she never made it big. Also, when you see these “Happy Birthday” Top Ten posts it usually means I was short on time so looked up actor birthdays for a quick, easy post. πŸ˜‰ Anyway, I was excited to see that it was Kelly Jo Minter’s birthday today – she was in a lot of good movies! (Okay, in very small roles plus I really could do with re-watching the bottom four but, hey – I saw them so they count! lol!).

Here are My Top Ten Kelly Jo Minter Movies counting down to my very favorite:

10. Doc Hollywood

Kelly’s role: Mulready

Oh yeah, Doc Hollywood… This was totally the type of movie you’d catch on TV back in those days. I saw it once. Pretty sure I didn’t hate it. Don’t remember Kelly in it!

9. New Jack City

Kelly’s role: Recovering Addict

Saw part of this while at a party & don’t remember much other than Chris Rock smoking crack. Don’t remember Kelly! Good to see she was a “recovering” addict.

8. House Party

Kelly’s role: LaDonna

Saw this with a guy I made out with in college. God he was a loser. Or maybe that was House Party II? Either way, I don’t remember Kelly. At least her character had a name.

7. The People Under The Stairs

Kelly’s role: Ruby Williams

Oh yeah – I kind of remember Kelly in this now (after looking up pictures for it). At least it was a big enough role for me to find pictures of her! I should watch this again. (R.I.P. Wes Craven)

6. Popcorn

Kelly’s role: Cheryl

One I remember! Since I just watched it last year for my Horror Month last October… It was okay! Well, it was bad. But good! In that shitty old slasher kind of way. With a bigger budget, it would’ve done better. It had potential.

5. Miracle Mile

Kelly’s role: Charlotta

Another one I watched & reviewed recently! I was shocked to find that this film has quite a few blogger fans. Kelly has a very small role but it was cool seeing her in it. There were lots of familiar faces in this one.

4. Summer School

Kelly’s role: Denise Green

Oh yeah… Summer School! I remember really liking this at the time. I bet it’s one that hasn’t aged well, though. Maybe it’s one that I should leave in the past.

3. A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

Kelly’s role: Yvonne

This has to be Kelly’s biggest role by far. When looking for pics of her, the majority are from horror conventions thanks to her being in this. I love every single Elm Street film – I don’t care what anyone says. (But it’s a shame she wasn’t in 1 or 3 since those are the really really good ones)

2. The Lost Boys

Kelly’s role: Maria

Hell, I have to say I don’t think I ever noticed her in this. Look! There she is talking to Alex Winter! Best vampire movie EVER, dammit.

1. Mask

Kelly’s role: Lorrie (aka “a hooker”)

I love Mask so much – it’s easily in my Top 10 Movies of all time (with about 15 other movies). It also tops My Top Ten Tearjerkers list – even though I’ve probably seen this a good 30 times, I can’t make it past the end without blubbering like an idiot. Anyway, it’s again a fairly small role for Kelly but not a bad one. She’s a very sweet hooker! It’s a nice moment in a severely underrated film.

I think this must be a fairly recent picture. According to IMDB, Kelly designs handbags now.

    • I know Miracle Mile is one of your favorites. πŸ˜‰ That’s probably my favorite review this year just because of all the great comments. I had no idea how many fans it had! Thanks again for the chat on that one! πŸ™‚

  1. Yeah, I’m one of the people asking, “Who?”! But then, the only one of these I’ve actually seen was The Lost Boys and, as discussed the other day, that was too long ago.

    re: Miracle Mile, it came out on Blu-ray in the US recently, and the number of people who were chomping at the bit for it, listing it as their most anticipated/exciting release of the year, was… well, more than I’d’ve thought. I hadn’t even heard of it before your review, and it felt like suddenly it was an important cult classic!

    • Oh, you’ve not seen Mask?? I love that movie SO much. Watch that before watching The Lost Boys again. πŸ˜‰ I know – I was shocked at all the people saying they loved Miracle Mile. I’d not heard of it before it appeared on Netflix! Weird. It’s a bit of an odd one. πŸ™‚

    • Did she? Had you lost it? Is that why she was in the lake, searching for it?? I know Summer School is on Netflix. I was going to watch it again sometime but there’s just too much other stuff to watch!

  2. I’ve never heard of this woman, but I must have seen her before. I do like The Lost Boys, but Doc Hollywood is my favorite of these. If only I knew who Mulready was!

    • I agree! I think she’s very lovely. And she still looks fantastic. πŸ™‚ Would love to have seen her in more things but also totally understand why some choose to leave acting behind.
