romantic comedies

Nora Ephron (1941-2012)

She wrote some of the most wonderful lines in movie history.

When Harry Met Sally

I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance.  You're the worst kind; you're high maintenance but you think you're low maintenance.

 

A Lot Like Love...

love locksValentine’s Day has come and gone, but February is still the month of love! Last week, in the spirit of the month, I wrote about classic love stories in film. Full of grand gestures and promises, these films make viewers long for a sweeping romance of their own.

But not all love stories have to be tragic and passionate. Some of my favorites are light-hearted romantic comedies. These movies are often looked down upon by critics and labeled as too “girly”, but the genre is constantly expanding and pushing the boundaries of what makes a watchable, believable romantic comedy. There is certainly something to be said about love with a dash of screwball humor, a sprinkling of witty banter, and a pinch of awkward situations.

Kimberly’s Romantic Comedy Picks:

"Come On and Let It Show..."

Richard Curtis is not a name that most movie-goers would recognize. He’s not in front of the cameras. He’s a British writer/director/producer and is responsible for some of the most popular romantic comedy movies in recent years. Curtis has a new movie out – Pirate Radio – and I’m looking forward to seeing it because I’ve yet to be disappointed in anything he’s done.

Many of the series and movies that I cite here include a Christmas theme, so they on my list of must-see holiday viewing.
