There was a great post yesterday on AAR about romantic comedies of the film rather than the book variety.
I’m fairly picky about my romantic comedies. I’ll watch just about anything, but very few have made it to the watch and re-watch stage. Here are some of my go to movies:
The banter. Oh, the banter. Not to mention the soundtrack.
a) Shakespeare. b) Can we just say, “I love you, baby….” If you’ve seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about.
Set in my beloved New York, about bookstores, and with great chemistry. Le sigh.
I’ve always had a bit of a Bill Pullman thing. Not to mention that the comic side characters are brilliantly comic.
The old one with Audrey Hepburn– accept no substitutes!
I debated about whether this one really fell in the comedy camp, since it has some more serious undertones– but I love it too much not to include.
What are your favorite romantic comedies?
