ON ROMANTIC COMEDIES (A TOP 5)

March 28, 2013


"I feel almost embarrassed revealing this, because the genre has been so degraded in the past twenty years that saying you like romantic comedies is essentially an admission of mild stupidity." -mindy kaling 

I just finished reading mindy kaling's book is everyone hanging out without me? and being my soul sister that she is, she touches heavily on her love for romantic comedies. (this chapter can be found here, as published in the new yorker.) when I was 10 years old, my favorite movie was when harry met sally. I strangely identified with the story of two thirtysomethings searching for love. I was like, "hey meg ryan, I get it. it's rough out there." that movie was the beginning of my heavy romanticization of new york city, my desire to drink bloody mary's on planes and my newfound confidence in asking for things "on the side". also, it solidified my ultimate dream of attending a fancy new year's eve party where I can wear long black gloves and sing auld lang syne at midnight. 

in no particular order...

(clears throat) ahem
the classic.

"and it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's new year's eve. 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."                                             -when harry met sally

b. jones, my gurl. this is a must watch after a break up / at christmas / any time you're in your pj's drinking wine.


"I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker...But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are."    
 -bridget jones's diary

how swoon-worthy is john cusack in this movie? 


"I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen." -say anything






"love is too weak a word for what I feel. I luuuurve you, I loave you, I luff you. two F's, yes." -annie hall


the movie that taught me to crave daisies in the spring and bouquets of sharpened pencils in the fall.



"I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn’t have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, “hey, how about… oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie… for as long as we both shall live?”      -you've got mail

did I leave anything out? 

*let it also be noted that the men in my life appreciate a good romcom. my father can quote nora ephron movies like nobody's business and greg, on our first date, told me that he liked you've got mail more than sleepless in seattle. and I melted into a little puddle under the table.*

YES. I loooove You've Got Mail. That's a movie I can watch over and over. Bridget Jones too. Such a funny movie. I'd add The Wedding Singer and Only You to this.

The Wedding Singer is also a fave. It's definitely in my top 10! "Now that's a good meatball..."

Michelle, I love Serendipity and Sleepless in Seattle! Two favorites. They're in the romance category, but are they in the romantic comedy category? haha. and TJ, yes, you must read it!

Now that I'm thinking, is Say Anything a comedy? Hmm....
