“Spin the Bottle”
The Juliana Hatfield Three
Cast: Emma Roberts, Channing Tatum, Billy Crystal, and Eric Roberts
Story: Struggling to pay college loans, Diana Lawrence (Emma Roberts) juggles three different jobs: a daytime waitress, a fashion writer, and a late-night bartender at a night club. When rising film star T.J. Banks (Channing Tatum) throws an event at the club, his party jokingly starts a risque game of spin the bottle. Seeing her advantage, Diana tosses a secret note inside the bottle, which tips off a rags-to-riches affair that lasts more than just five minutes in the closet. Naturally, his middling agent, Jackie Greaser (Billy Crystal), does not approve.
Tagline: “Bottom’s up!”
Does the band make an appearance? Hatfield plays the single mother of Emma Roberts and has a great scene with her estranged father, Eric Roberts, who charms critics in a telling role.
Happy ending? It’s up to the bottle.
Fun fact: This song appeared on another romantic comedy’s soundtrack — Ben Stiller’s Reality Bites.
