I’d like to start off by wishing everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day! If you’ve already celebrated that you had a really awesome one!
People who know me would consider me a romantic, but the most girly interest I may have is watching romantic comedies. I love watching them all the time. This list is made up of 10 of my favorite romantic comedies. My boyfriend pitched in two that he really enjoyed (which are also my favorites). At the end I’ll put down which ones he would sit down and watch with me willingly.
I usually enjoy doing movie marathons for certain events in the year. This year I didn’t do a Valentine’s Movie Marathon because I’m doing one of my whole movie collection but if I were to have one, here’s what it’d look like!
(Please note that these are not in any particular order)
LETTERS TO JULIET
Not only is the story very cute, its also about all the things we’d like to have. Some crazy romance goose chase looking for a long lost love while a younger love is developing. Along with that, its paired up with a lot of happy love songs from Colbie Caillat in the background. Every time I finish watching this movie, I just feel absolutely fantastic.
Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock is really a combination that cannot be a disaster. I’m a huge Sandra Bullock fan and this movie was so hilarious.
I don’t think this one needs a whole lot of explanation. Valentine’s Day to watch on Valentine’s Day seems to be reasonable. Aside from that point, this movie was pretty lighthearted. I particularly loved Anne Hathaway’s character as she brought this crazy humorous take to her story. In general, this movie was extremely fun to watch.
P.S. I LOVE YOU
I’m still a bit confused as to whether this can be considered a romantic comedy but then I did find the movie rather funny. For sure, the beginning wasn’t as funny. We all know losing a loved one is not funny but then the way she had to do everything she was told to pick herself up was a very sweet on the part of her husband. The point of romantic comedies is to live through a situation that you’d hope could happen to you. In this case, it wouldn’t be being widowed relatively young, but to be able to have someone who would have thought through so much because of his love, that he’d want you to move on and be happy after he had passed on.
This is possibly Katherine Heigl’s best romantic comedy. She’s done multiple after but this one was pretty good. I’ve personally watched many times and I still always like to watch it.
The modern day Emma movie adaptation. I first saw this movie in one of my English classes called Movies and Cinema and we were reading the book Emma. I was never a fan of romantic comedies nor Alicia Silverstone but this movie was hilarious. Maybe its because it had an amusing take of the story and of growing up and finding true love. It was a very funny and uplifting movie to watch.
LIFE AS WE KNOW IT
This is one of my most recent romantic comedy additions. Another Katherine Heigl movie with Josh Duhamel. I found this movie quite entertaining. Getting thrown responsiblities before they were ready and dealing with it step by step. About how people can grow up and change to adapt to sudden situations in life, I think its a very encouraging movie for anyone.
MY LIFE IN RUINS
I had a debate over this one or My Big Fat Greek Wedding but this one won. I liked this movie because the actor was just crazy. You had never imagined what the guy was like through the whole movie, then unexpectedly she falls for him. Turns out the guy that looked horrible in the beginning becomes this charming man. It shows us how love is unexpected and comes when we least expect it to.
Finally, my guy’s pick (because we all know despite loving watching romantic comedies with the girls or watching all the action movie with the boyfriend, its important to have him willingly sit next to you and enjoy a nice romantic comedy once in a while).
JUST GO WITH IT
This is another new addition to my movie collection and I watched it recently with my boyfriend and he totally loved it. Adam Sandler usually makes pretty decent comedies. Although, that is more the case in his older ones such as Spanglish (I’m not completely sure if there were other romantic comedies though). I don’t really know how to describe this movie without sounding repetitive but this movie was downright hilarious. The whole cast was fantastic and the dialogue was just absolutely great. It was definitely fun to watch. We all need a good laugh.
HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS
Kate Hudson and Matthew McConnaughey had crazy connection in this movie. This movie really was a great trip. How much can a guy take before you reach his breaking point in a relationship? Although I’m not sure any girl would go to that extreme because if they did, they would be pretty scary stuff.
So my Valentine’s marathon had started in January when I did end up watching most in these movies before today (Valentine’s Day)! Okay, its a bit late! its technically not Valentine’s day anymore, but what better to match the season than to give fantastic choices of rom-coms.
I’m always up for more romantic comedies suggestions as they are one of the best solutions to relieve stress in my life. Seeing my list, how many of you would agree with my choices? What are yours?
