Romantic Comedies You Need To Watch #1

and it goes a littlesomething like this.png

Here are some of my favourite romantic comedies that I think everyone (yes, including males!) should watch! I think I will be splitting this up into a few little parts in the weeks to come 🙂 If you’ve seen any of these before, please feel free to share your thoughts; I would love to hear them! ❤

He’s Just Not That Into You

Starring: Ginnifer Goodwin, Justin Long, Kevin Connolly, Drew Barrymore, Bradley Cooper, Scarlett Johanssen, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston & Jennifer Connelly

Synopsis: The film centres around the character of Gigi (Goodwin) and her searching for the perfect man in spite of a long line of unsuccessful dates. She is set up on a date with real estate agent Conor (Connolly) Barry. The date is fairly average, but Gigi becomes obsessed with waiting for the callback from Conor.

Meanwhile, Conor is infatuated with Anna (Johanssen) and starting a serious relationship with her. However, she is not interested.

Janine (Connelly) and Beth (Aniston) work in the same office as Gigi. They convince her that Conor will call back and that one day she will be in a happy relationship with him, in spite of the apparent lack of interest at the time.

One day in a bar, Gigi meets Alex (Long), an attractive barman who guides her through the signs and how to tell whether or not a guy likes her. But what if the person teaching you how to read the signs doesn’t know them himself?

Janine married her college sweetheart, Ben (Cooper). She offered him an ultimatum, marry her or break-up. He chose marriage but begins to regret this choice as she starts to plan their future.

When Ben meets Anna in the grocery line, they feel an immediate connection – could it turn into something more?

Beth’s boyfriend is Neil (Affleck), a friend of Ben’s. They have been together seven years, and Beth has been wondering for 5 of those why Neil won’t marry her. He says he doesn’t believe in marriage – does he really love her?

And finally, Mary (Barrymore) and friend of Anna’s. Mary has been looking for love from the word ‘GO’. She is testing the waters with online dating, but is the person behind the screen to be trusted?

Whose relationships will stand the test? Will Gigi finally read the signs? :0

Why you should watch it: This is no ordinary rom-com! Anyone can learn something from this film and everyone can gain something having seen it. It teaches you that you don’t necessarily need a storybook ending. Sometimes your ending may be different from the typical trope found in books and movies, but it’s right for YOU. And also to enjoy the film, of course. With an all-star cast and an amazing soundtrack, why wouldn’t you?

Favourite Line: ‘You are my exception.’ ❤

And if that wasn’t enough to convince you, I hope this is:

About Time

Starring: Domnhall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander & Margaret Robbie

Synopsis: On his 21st birthday, Tim Lake discovers that the men in his family line all have a special ability; to travel through time. There is one condition: they can only travel to places and times that they have been to before.

After a disastrous (repeated) summer trying to attract his sister’s friend, Charlotte, he realises that should move on and pursue his career as a lawyer.

One day, he meets a young woman called Mary in a blind French restaurant. They get along very well and exchange numbers; but after using his powers to save a friend’s performance, he discovers her number erased from his phone, because due to him changing his whereabouts, they had not met yet.

Therefore, he has to find a way to meet Mary again, under different circumstances, and win her heart. But does it really make life any easier when you can always have a do-over? And when Tim is faced with the hardest decision of his life, what will he do?

Why you should watch it: This film helps you to appreciate life, to live in the moment and to learn to live life without regret. It also asks the moral question: ‘If I could change the past, would I?’ I think this is so interesting, because arguably, if we hadn’t have made difficult decisions and mistakes, we may not be where we are today, surrounded by those we love and care about. ❤ And of course, the acting is brilliant. It was a real tear-jerker 😥

Favourite Line: ‘We’re all travelling through time together, every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride.’

        Great! So looking forward to that! Sure, I thought about it a while (hence the late answer) and the Romcoms that I adore are “Harry and Sally”, “Sleepless in Seattle”, “Pretty Woman”, “How to loose him in 10 days”, “27 dresses”, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “Love actually”, “Valentines Day”, “New Years Eve”, “Brigid Jones Diary” and “Notting Hill”…. that was a lot…
        What do you think about the idea of collaborating on this? I could make the movies just a mentioned into a list on my blog and you choose your favorites and make another list and then we can link the three together (of course including your existing one) and we’ll have a wonderfully long “Best RomComs of all time” List!! 🙂 Let me know what you think about it! I’d love to do that!! So fun!
