Movies for a Rainy Day

The Good, the Bad, and the So-Bad-They're-Good.

Valentine’s Day

Alright, so what are some of the good romance/romantic comedy movies?

“You’ve Got Mail”, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. I know that a lot of people feel like these two have been over played in films, but this movie is too sweet, funny, and horribly 90’s to pass up.

“The Holiday”. Yes, it is a movie where you are meant to take Jack Black seriously. This movie is a fantastic modern romantic film made with the tempo, dialogue, and spirit of the classic (think “Roman Holiday” or “Sabrina”) romance film.

“Moulin Rouge” is a bit more out there, but beneath the over-the-top visuals, campy characters, and unusually paced moments there lies a classic and timeless love story.

“Titanic”. We all know the ending, but this is still a great movie.

“Larry Crowne”. A new look at middle-aged love set in an amazingly accurate view of the current economic condition.

“Pretty Woman”. Don’t deny your love of this movie!

“Runaway Bride” is another pairing of Gere and Roberts, but it’s a different story and a great ending.

“French Kiss”. Meg Ryan was made for romantic comedies…which leads us to “When Harry Met Sally”.

“Music and Lyrics”. Just about the only Hugh Grant film I can tolerate.

“Jerry Maguire”. One of the only sports movies a woman can admit really is about more than just sports.

“As Good as it Gets”. This rounds out my list. This is one of the single best performances by every single actor in this film. Honest, funny, classic and romantic.
