Mike and I have watched nearly every decent romantic movie that there is in the world, and I have started to despair a little that any legitimately good romantic comedy-type movies will ever be made again, but in the mean time I will just keep watching gems like these over and over and over again (which is incidentally super easy with Netflix streaming, just saying.) If you're in the market for a good romantic flick, then click click clickity click over and hit these up, they will not disappoint.
1) Silver Linings Playbook. I feel like maybe people were debating a lot about this movie a while ago, but since I deliberately stay clueless as to things that are trending, I only actually watched this rather recently with Mike and loooooved it. I hope that doesn't spark any old debates, or maybe there weren't any, I have no idea. I thought Robert DeNiro's character was completely hilarious and Bradly Cooper is a particular fav of mine and even though it is a little bit dark in some ways, I mostly just thought it was quirky and fun.
2) Roman Holiday.
3) Charade. I watched this years ago with Mike and loved it. I laughed a lot and loved the dynamic between Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn (more Audrey!). They don't make them like they used to (uh huh, right Ana). *
4) While You Were Sleeping. 90s Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman. Need I say anymore? This is one that I had not seen until this past year and Mike was a little aghast at that. It made for a super fun date night movie watch and allowed Mike to check another movie off of his "movies Ana must watch" list, he doesn't actually have a list.
5) 13 Going on 30. Say what you will about this one, but it holds a special, cheesy place in my heart. I would be embarrassed if I counted the number of times I watched this during college, toooooo many. But still, it's fun and feel-good all around a good romantic comedy.
What about you? What are your feel-good favs? I can only watch these so many times, so I am all ears!
* Update -- My movie obsessed husband says that Charade is more of a thriller/suspense than a romantic comedy, but it does have humor and a romance, so I'll still keep it here on the list.
