Every year more than 500 movies are released to theaters. I'm lucky if I see one. I miss going to the movies, but I like waiting for them to go to DVD, that way I know what to expect.
We all have our favorite type of move, just like we all have our favorite category line. (Like how I tied that in? Hold you applause.) We won't miss the kind of movie we crave, be it suspense or romantic comedy. But sometimes, the unexpected flick can be the one that we need to help open our eyes. Just like reading an unfamiliar line might open our minds.
Blaze -- 40 Days and 40 Nights :: To put the brakes on a string of romantic disasters, Matt gives up sex for Lent. And what happens in romance as soon as someone swears off sex?
Modern Extra - How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days :: One is on assignment to get, and lose, a guy in ten days so she can write about it for her magazine column, the other must make a woman fall in love with him in order to gain an advertising client. What could possibly go wrong?
SuperRomance - One Fine Day :: Two single parents work through their divorce angst while trying to balance work and kids who should be on a school field trip. This one is sweet and funny and explores a lot of angst without being depressing.
Romance -- Lovewrecked :: While on a cruise with the best friend she never saw as a potential boyfriend, Jenny is marrooned on the far side of an island with a rock star. Since he's lacking in the brain department she doesn't tell him they could walk to civilization, but in spending time with him she starts to wish he were someone else...
Presents -- The American President :: Smart and educated woman swept off her feet and showered with gifts and attention...only to be pushed aside when the going gets tough. Little does our hero know, she's tougher than he is.
Romantic Suspense -- Mr & Mrs Smith :: Assasins, blackmail, and intrigue...Oh my!
Everlasting -- The Notebook :: This movie is always quoted as being what Everlasting novels are 'like'.
NEXT -- Because I Said So :: Next novels have a romantic element, but there is always something else going on, like in this mother/daughter story. I love the 'You look like you're asking for it.' aside from the mother, followed up by the flippant, "I am asking for it." from the daughter.
American -- Sweet Home Alabama :: Only in an American could the heroine leave the polished Manhattan prince for the rough and tattered Alabama hunk. It's good to be an American, isn't it?
OK...now it's your turn! What is your favorite romance, and which category line does it fall into? Is it the line you read the most?
XOXO -- Jenna
