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. 😉 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:
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!
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
