My husband hates chick flicks so I usually only rent them when he is away or going out for the evening. I can usually guilt him into watching them if he's around but then as he says, he may watch it but he will not enjoy it quietly. There are the eye rolls, grunting, and my favorite, the sarcastic "gee, that wasn't predictable" at the end.
I came up with a list of 14 of my all-time favorite romantic movies for Valentine's Day.
My List of the Top 14 Romantic Movies
2)When Harry Met Sally
4)You've Got Mail
6)The Wedding Planner
9)My Big Fat Greek Wedding
10)Something's Gotta Give
11)Bridget Jones Diary
12)Must Love Dogs
13)The Ugly Truth
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Sex and the City, and Maid in Manhattan are some of my other favorites. I love Renee Zellweger, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, and John Cusack. I plan on renting Roman Holiday this weekend. I have never seen it and since I love old movies this will be perfect for the holiday weekend.
Another movie I want to see is The Back-up Plan which comes out in theaters on April 23rd. It stars Jennifer Lopez and Alex O'Loughlin (the sexy guy from August Rush). According to the website, it "is a comedy that explores dating, love, marriage, and family 'in reverse'". I think it looks like a hilarious romantic comedy. I am not going to give anything away.
To check out the trailer and find out for yourself what this movie is about, click here. If you like what you see, you can follow The Back-up Plan on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on news about the movie.
Psst...take your girlfriends to see this one for a girl's night out and let the boys stay at home with the wee ones!!
