Ahh, Romance

I've taken on a new habit of watching Romantic Comedies late at night as I'm blogging and catching up on writing.

Yesterday, was Picture Perfect, with Jennifer Aniston, which ended up being really cute! There are few romantic movies that just make my heart swoon, but for some reason I was SO into the male protagonist in this movie! I mean, I usually won't admit it, but sometimes I really wish that the guy would NOT end up with the girl. Just for kicks and giggles.)

And, tonight, or as I type this, I am watching Notting Hill, because I have a soft spot in my heart for Hugh Grant.

And England.

And for books.

And traveling.

But I digress.

Somehow I've gone all of these years without seeing it. But I did own the soundtrack. Don't ask.

And I'm really enjoying it, but I don't think I'll be able to finish it all tonight. Much too late.

And, all of these "chick," flicks have gotten me thinking of my favorites. They would be, in no certain order:

Return to Me

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

A Walk to Remember

Sweet Home Alabama

The Notebook

Miss Congeniality

and many others.

I'm looking for some new chick flicks to watch late at night...any suggestions?

I watched One Fine Day yesterday. Its on my list of faves. And I am a big fan of any Jane Austen book turned movie, though I particularly enjoy the new Pride and Prejudice.

Oh, and You've Got Mail.

Those are my must-see 3.

Pride & Prejudice - the BBC's 5hr version with Colin Firth.

Bride & Prejudice - the Bollywood version of P&P.

Fool's Gold (Love it, Kate Hudson & Matthew McConaughey have such great theater chemistry).

Win a Date with Tad Hamilton (a good laugh)

That Thing You Do - sort of a chick flick, sort of not. Good movie. Tom Hanks wrote/directed. Music's great!

Sabrina (w/ Harrison Ford)

Return to Me and Miss Congeniality were already on your list, but those are definitely two of my favorites! :)

Oh I love Notting Hill...I need to watch that again, I haven't seen that movie in years. I think you've got most of my favorites on your list but I love Serendipity as well! (even Hubby enjoyed this one!)

Elizabeth said...

"Definitely, Maybe" is a great Romantic comedy starring Ryan Reynolds. In it, he tells his daughter how he met the three loves of his life, and she (and the audience) have to guess which is the mother. It was a romantic comedy that kinda broke the formula, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Some others:

"You've Got Mail"
"Somebody Like you" (if you've ever been though a break-up you'll like this film)
"Serendipity" such a sweet movie
And of course the ultimate winner of Rom-Coms "When Harry met Sally"

Llama said...

Chick flicks are my fav! I love Sweet Home Alabama!! So adorable!

Callie said...

Confessions of a Shopaholic is really cute! I like that one. And Pride and Prejudice is probably my all-time favorite. If you like Hugh Grant and England you should see Sense and Sensibility with Emma Thompson - he's in it, and I like it alot!

Brian and Ashley said...
