Roseanne was way hotter than Leigh


I can't be the only who thinks this right? I mean when Leigh is first shown after Dennis's friend was talking her up saying how unbelievably hot she was, i gotta say i didn't see it when she walked down the hall. She was also wearing horrible unflattering clothes, i mean baggy beige shorts?

It just baffled me how Dennis was completely ignoring Roseanne and blowing her off because he was so infatuated with Leigh.

Also how did she have the body of a slut? Dennis's friend was saying she had the face of an angel and the body of a slut. Alexandra Paul is very skinny, is pretty much flat chested and hardly has curves, so i don't see how her body is that of a sluts.

Thats what i love about these high school girls, i get older they stay the same age.

Agreed

I think he blew off Roseanne because she was an easy catch and he could get her anytime he wanted but Leigh showed to be a challenge. He was the competitive jock type, anyway.

The second time, he didn't blow her off, he was in a hurry to check on Arnie

Correcto.

To me Leigh was a gorgeous girl anyway, though there's no denying her biggest appeal to them was her "freshness".

reply

Leigh had a pretty face but her clothes-ugh. I guess that was the early 80's huh?

i agree with this. Kelly Preston is aiiiiiiiiiiiight

I thought the same thing. I mean, I can see she was a pretty girl, but not any more than the other one that was always saying hello. And Leigh was dressed in what looked like preppy clothes, that were baggy none the less. Nothing slutty about that. I just chocked the comment up to guy/locker-room talk, nothing more. They were just transfixed by the new girl in school.

I say this with ease: I 100% understand why Dennis and his pals were going loco over Leigh and blowing off Roseanne. ‘Matter of fact, I don’t blame them! Now perhaps if Roseanne was the new girl herself and not such an easy tease, then Dennis would almost certainly be all over her. (And who says Dennis didn’t already get his chance with Roseanne? He probably did.)

But here’s the thing: Leigh WAS sexy and out of Dennis’ league. How so? Well for one thing, Leigh was a smart gal. And although her “nerdy” clothes were unflattering, as far as Dennis and his friends were concerned she had a great body - the viewer can't tell but still - and I imagine showing very little of herself only made her that much more irresistible. ;) Furthermore, apart from having a great physique and brains, in my eyes Alexandra Paul in Christine (and arguably in general) did have the more striking features between her and Preston. I mean, those eyes and lips - perfect! And not for nothing but... she’s a tall girl and there is just something very hot about that. Know what I mean? ;}

Roseanne was pure temptation alright, albeit girls like her were not a dime dozen for Dennis. Leigh? She was something new and fresh to Dennis and his bonehead friends. Don’t get me wrong, Kelly Preston is as hot as it gets! Though I may find Alexandra to be a bit more unique looking, I do think Kelly is ultimately sexier. I first saw Kelly in Twins and in that movie she was just... damn; definitely more jaw dropping than Alexandra was in Christine. At any event, Alexandra Paul was and is by all means a gorgeous woman.

You realize that people have different opinions and likes. In a case of men's attraction to women, a woman immensely attractive (hot) to one guy can leave another guy cold. You're opinion regarding Leigh vs. Roseanne is irrelevant. As is mine.

reply

I was kind of into Regina Cunningham, the mom (I thought she was bossy hot, and I mean that in a most respectful, naughty way).

reply

The point is that all the guys were supposedly more into Leigh. I may be a gal, but I didn't think that was believable. Alexandra Paul was manly and flat-chested without any curves.

reply

That's Hollywood casting for you. Ever see Jennifer's body? They've got Amanda seyfried playing the supposedly plain friend in that one.
