When you are confined to bed with the flu, the one thing you are destined to do is to binge watch every chick flick your other half refuses to watch with you. I know, very cliche', but face it... being imprisoned by the ick this is gonna happen. I'm sure you must watch these three classics...
1. Bridget Jones and the Edge of Reason, my favorite of the three.
2. Notting Hill.... Julia in one of my favorite roles.
3. and last, but certainly not least....Love Actually.... my personal favorite... Hugh Grant's sexy prime minister dance, Colin Firth's adorable yet goofy writer persona, and sooooo many others that just made that movie perfection.
All those movies, as you will discover, are British... love Brit humor, more sophisticated, more real, and a lot more funny than most of the more recent rom coms. The classic American romc coms....
1. Sleepless in Seattle
2. You've Got Mail
3. and one that has been a little underrated....Addicted to Love... hilarious and Meg and Matthew are just adorbs as the opposites that fall in love while tearing their exes to shreds (this is a perfect movie if just going through a break up).
Those are the top six rom coms in my book. And now for a chick flick you may or may not have missed... Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette in the 2015 sleeper hit 'Miss You Already'. This is the movie you want to Skype watch with your bestie who lives miles away... (girl, you know who you are, we need to watch this). From their junior high years to their adult lives, the friendship that stands the test of breast cancer, infertility, and silly drunken trips through England, a Beaches for the new era. Even though they did do a remake of Beaches staring Idina Menzel which was ok... it was Lifetime and I still cringe at the thought of my beloved Idina doing a Lifetime movie. Anyhow, 'Miss You Already' is quite a tear jerking, giggle inducing treat that I'm sure you'll love. On that note, I'm going to sign off and finish watching this movie...again. Oh, and you're welcome.
