In the mood for a rom com. Not a shit one. Recommendations?
Punch-Drunk Love ('this count?)
I Give It A Year
Away We Go
10 Things I Hate About You
I reckon Sightseers technically counts
Sits alongside Terminator 2 for me as far and away my most watched films of all time.
Cast full of future A-listers and (let's be honest here) terrific writing.
that's about it
and Love Actually (obvs)
eagle vs shark
me and you and everyone we know
perks of being a wallflower
Bringing Up Baby
The first film i enjoyed watching george clooney in
It should be terrible but it's got a lot of heart and some good chemistry between both leads.
not really a straight rom com though
I miss the Diaz/Barrymore/Witherspoon glory days.
Favourite recent slightly alternative ones: Enough Said, Obvious Child.
proper bursting-into-song ones, not ones centred around music as a part of the plot
i bet you all love everyone says i love you and class it as a 'guilty pleasure'
500 days of summer isn't even a romcom is it
and its shit
and its not a musical
THE SURE THING!!!!!
Met Sally is evil: makes people think 'Oh, we can just have fun and stay friends' without making it clear that it never happens like that.
The Whole rom com thing is a piece of crap anyway. Live alone, die alone. Might as well get used to it!
You know that (SPOILERS) they don't just stay friends, right?
why it's a lie. In real life, they never end up together. She ends up with some guy who cheats on her once a month, but that's ok because she likes a 'Bad Boy'
One of the sweetest/ silliest films I've seen in years.
I think it got an average rating of something like 3/10 on rotten tomatoes, which is good, because PROPER INDIE innit.
(it is really bad- it's just also so SO good. I was crying with laughter throughout at least half of it. They go on holiday to 'africa'. hahahhaa.)
