Favorite Romantic Comedies!

Untitled

Hi ūüôā

I hope you’re not getting tired of these movie posts because I’ve got a few others that I’d like to discuss sometime in the future! As you might’ve seen in my last movie post, I added¬†Sweet Home Alabama¬†as one of my favorite chick flicks, which is what it is, but after searching around for my favorite romantic comedies I started to think that maybe I should have left it out and put it on this list instead. And then I had another thought, that maybe if I hadn’t added it, would I even think of doing this post?

I don’t honestly like the lovey-dovey films. It’s just not in my DNA to believe in love at first sight, at least not with people. Blogs, music, and books are totally different for me. You can tell a lot about those things with whatever cover is on the front. People can be very difficult to read I think. So honestly I have a love/hate relationship with the romantic comedies because there’s a lot of love-y scenes that usually make me want to barf, but yeah there are some that tug at my heart and I end liking it a lot more than I had planned on and that is why I decided to give you this list.

The Parent Trap (1998 – Natasha Richardson, Dennis Quaid, Lindsay Lohan)

I actually watched this recently. I hadn’t watched it in a really long time and so the fact that I was wanting to watch it one afternoon was a mystery to me. Surprisingly, I still remember quite a bit of this film.

I think some of my favorite scenes are really when Annie and Hallie start playing tricks on each other at camp. I mean, the last one in Annie’s cabin is flat out hilarious and something I thought was weird was the fact whenever they show the scene inside the cafeteria and you see those pictures of the previous camp goers and then they have this last prank of these girls sneaking around putting shaving cream and honey on some of these girls, I thought how does one sleep through all of that?! Because I’m picturing loud creaks everytime the girls walked along the floors.

I did like the chemistry between Elizabeth and Nick, they seemed genuine and I loved the scene whenever Liz decides to take Hallie back to California and exchange her with Annie again, because she literally becomes this crazy woman! She’s nervous about seeing her ex-husband and the girls make up this big scheme to get their parents back together. The final prank to get Meredith out of the picture is funny as hell! See, I’d never be that clever to be able to do that to a person, but then again I’m naturally a fun, loving and warm type of person! I’ve got family members laughing at that sentence right now I know I do!

Look Who’s Talking (1989 – Kirstie Alley, John Travolta, Bruce Willis)

I really love this movie! I’m still kicking myself for removing it on my DVR about two years ago because leave it to my mother to delete it on her side. And she wonders why every once in a while I go and delete some of her stuff. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve deleted¬†Fifty Shades Of Grey!¬†I think this is truly one of my best movies and I’ve watched a LOT of movies over the years! I can watch it in the morning, late afternoons when my energy is getting low and late at night when I can’t sleep.

I don’t really like Bruce Willis, but I absolutely love him voicing Mikey. I think he is freaking hilarious! I’ve always wanted to know what babies and toddlers are really thinking about the people that are around them 24/7 and he brought every thought and emotion in each scene, because babies don’t know any better and he manged to figure out what to say in each section so perfect! I wonder if he ever ab-libed any of those scenes?

The Back-Up Plan (2010 – Jennifer Lopez, Alex O’Loughlin)

Every once in a while, I’ll see a trailer for a film and fall completely in love with it. This was one of those movies!

I am a sucker of anything with Jennifer Lopez in it, so it was only natural to get into this film I think. I thought the story was very adorable and made me wonder about my future.¬† I’d love to have a family of my own, I’ve wanted that for majority of my life so watching this woman have like a deadline that if she didn’t find her true love by a certain age that she was going to do her back-up plan and basically go to a sperm bank and create that family that she wants. It’s such a sweet and funny movie!

Legally Blonde (2001 – Reese Witherspoon, Matt Davis, Luke Wilson)

Years ago, I want to say a month or two before we left so I could have my surgeries, my aunt on my dad’s side gave me Legally Blonde and it was seriously the most played movie besides The Little Rascals! My roommate Shelby and I were freaking obsessed with it! The nights before our surgeries we would eat chips and salsa and watch Legally Blonde. When we were lying in bed recovering, we would have portable televisions and VCR on a table and we’d watch it as part to comfort us in those times!

My mom and I can STILL quote the entire film! We both have our favorite scenes and characters! We solely have a chihuahua because of Bruiser and when Matt Davis appeared on The Vampire Diaries in 2011, I was in denial because I knew I recognized him but I couldn’t place him in anything I had watched recently, but once I showed my mom, she was like that’s “Warner!” and so if it wasn’t for her I would have forgotten about that! She actually had a hard time watching Charlie Sheen’s¬†Anger¬† Management¬†during it’s first season because Selma Blair was in it and she had a difficult time not seeing her as the “rigid bitch” in LB!

What are some of your favorite romantic comedies? Is there a genre of film (besides horror!) you’d like me to talk about in a future post? Let me know!¬†

Movie Characters I’d Like To Meet

I was thinking about doing a post about what it feel like if I could meet movie or TV show characters that I really liked. I can blame this on the past post I did about which book characters I’d like to meet. So I’ve been really thinking about adding onto it. Movies is first, and according to the picture I’ve chosen to start this out, I’d like to meet Emmett “Doc” Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) because they are awesome and have been through so many years it would be interesting to do a mini interview with them. Especially, since the first movie was made in the 80’s, so both could still be alive to see 2012.

In the second Back To The Future movie, they are in the year 2015, so that’s still a ways off from now, but I wonder if Doc ever went to the infamous year because you know a scientist would want to see if the world would end in December or not. I would be curious, so if he did do you think he sees what carmakers are thinking in their minds, when will we really get those flying cars? I’ve been watching the trilogy and The Jetsons since I was little, so the flying cars are first on my mind to wonder about. The technology keeps changing, right? What about the cars?

Anyways, another movie I’ve been thinking about to use¬†is Life As We Know It and it starred Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. It’s more of a chick flick than anything else, but it’s funny and cute at the same. I was having some trouble thinking of other movies to choose and this movie just came at me. I haven’t watched it in a while, maybe that’s why. Sorry off track, back to the plan. The movie is about two single people, who were set up by their married friends to go on a date, but it didn’t work out. Then a few years go by and the friends that are married, had a daughter, and they get into an accident and get killed. Well, the characters are now legal guardians of¬†this little girl. They decide to live together in the house, and “try” to¬†get along. That’s a cliffhanger for you. Thankfully, the way the movie ends, you are like me, you want to know more about the characters in the future. Are they still getting along? Are they married? Have they had kids of their own? You know little thoughts here and there.

I would love to meet the characters that Katherine and Josh play, they play Holly and Messer. If you’re familiar with the movie, I bet you’ve asked yourself the same questions. How has careers of these two worked out? Because you know Holly owned a bakery, Messer was a big-time technical sports director. Which one calls more of the shots at the house? The movie shows everybody celebrating Sophie’s second birthday, and Holly and Messer’s one year of getting through it all and staying alive. Everybody wonders, do they get married? Have any kids? Or maybe some were hoping for a sequel. Another movie that involves babies.

The Back-Up Plan is a movie about a woman named Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) and she doesn’t think finding a relationship is in her deck of cards, but she does want a child. So she gets artificial insemination. After that appointment, she tries to go into a taxi and she and this guy Stan (Alex O’Loughlin) get the same taxi. I don’t want to go into much detail, but I will say this. How many guys would date a girl, find out she was artificial insemination, gets pregnant, finds out she’s having twins¬†and agree to make the relationship work? Eh, not many would. How the ending played out, the thoughts you had for LAWKI are coming back again in full swing. Because at the ending, not only do they become engaged, but the twins look about a year old, and Zoe throws up in the trash can right at the end. Two theories, she could be plain sick or she really is pregnant and this time it would be naturally. As far as the ending goes, it could be either one. Their faces at the end though were freaking hilarious!
