One way in which to have a diverse and entertaining evening is by viewing a marathon of back-to-back Brittany Murphy movies. The bubbly and sassy Italian-American actress made a splash as a teenager in the 1995 hit film "Clueless," and continued on making movies until her untimely and young passing in December of 2009 due to toxic mold. Brittany Murphy was known for movies such as "Don't Say a Word," "Just Married," "Little Black Book" and "Riding in Cars With Boys."

  1. "Clueless" is a 1995 teen romantic comedy that was the breakout role for blonde starlet Alicia Silverstone. Along with Alicia Silverstone, Clueless also was a promising vehicle for up-and-coming Hollywood talent including Brittany Murphy, Donald Faison Paul Rudd and Stacey Dash. In "Clueless," Brittany Murphy plays Tai, the unstylish new girl in town who gets a dramatic makeover from Alicia Silverstone's dream girl character, Cher.

  2. "Don't Say a Word" is a dramatic thriller that hit theaters in the autumn of 2001. The cast of "Don't Say a Word" consists of Brittany Murphy, Michael Douglas, Sean Bean and Jennifer Esposito. The dark flick is centered around the kidnapping of a psychologist's daughter, and the torture that the psychologist undergoes as he is forced to communicate and get through to a mentally disturbed individual in order to find out the possible "secret" regarding his missing daughter.

  3. "Just Married" is a frothy 2003 romantic comedy that stars Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy, who at that point were also a couple in real life.
