Story: A girl writes a love letter to a boy, only for the letter to fall into the wrong hands and becomes extremely misinterpreted.
Why You Should Watch it: This 1985 teen comedy has a pretty standard story, but how far goes is up there with the best of Woody Allen and Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut.” I can’t believe the Secret Admirer full movie is on You Tube.
Here’s something I’ve never seen in any movie. Usually, the black and white-ness of movies paints couples who hate married life as vulnerable, but “Secret Admirer” does something bold and new… the couples who are threatened are happily married.
But when they see this letter of passion, they’re willing to threaten their marriage like moths to flames. There are tons of statements in “Secret Admirer” about repressed emotions, the validity of love, and how modern human beings misinterpret literally everything.
“Secret Admirer” is up there with “The Breakfast Club” as a teen comedy masterpiece. I admired it when I first saw in 1985 and I today my admiration is no longer secret. Check out the Secret Admirer full movie while you can. I Can’t Believe It’s on YouTube!
