My friend from work, Eileen and I got to talk about romantic movies one day over lunch. I was so surprised to find out she hasn’t seen much of the raved about chick flicks. I grew up reading not only romance novels (Jude Deveraux anyone? Love Stories collection, yes?) but I also watched a whole lot of romantic films – and I mean a lot! It’s an ever growing list of romance movies I have to watch. My Dad got me into watching those movies, can you believe it? He was a romantic at heart.
Well, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner now, I thought I’d share some of my all time favorite romantic comedy movies because what better time to binge watch these than February, the love month?
1. You’ve Got Mail
Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks make a real cute couple! I loved them on Sleepless in Seattle which is also a really nice movie but You’ve Got Mail is my favorite! Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) and Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) They’ve never met in person but they do talk online via email, not knowing they actually knew each other! Seriously a cute movie!
This movie made me believe finding love online is a possibility. I actually did meet a couple of Filipino guys online before whom I exchanged emails with have a couple of times, talking about mundane stuff. They were around 16-18 years old and I was a 13 year old pretending to be 18 at the time. Boy! I couldn’t wait to grow up then! Ha! Ha!
