Hello, Friends! I thought that with the lockdown still going on, now might be a good time to recommend some of my favorite RomComs to my fellow romance fiends!!!
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) – OMG – THIS IS MY FAVORITE ROMCOM EVA!!! Prepare yourself for culture clash as a Greek woman(Nia Vardalos) falls for a non-Greek man(John Corbett), and it becomes a family affair! (This really resonates with me as I married into a Thai family.)
There’s Something About Mary (1998) – CLASSIC! When Ted(Ben Stiller) reunites with his childhood crush, Mary(Cameron Diaz), things get a little out of hand.
As Good As It Gets (1997) – When Melvin(Jack Nicholson), an OCD writer, is forced out of his comfort zone, his ‘emotional support’ waitress(Helen Hunt) must struggle to help him.
Something’s Gotta Give (2003) – Harry(Jack Nicholson) suffers a heart attack at his much younger girlfriend’s house. While he’s recuperating, he finds himself drawn to his girlfriend’s mother(Diane Keaton), and hilarity ensues.
Mortal Kombat (1995) – You might be surprised to see this on the list, but really, it fits into every movie category.
50 First Dates (2004) – Think Groundhog Day as Henry(Adam Sandler) falls in love with a woman(Drew Barrymore) who has memory loss, and each day, her memories of the day before erase.
I hope you’re all doing well during this unprecedented time! Stay safe!
