Runaway Bride – A classic with Julia Roberts, this one’s simply a must. It’s got all the flavors of romance and comedy. After changing her mind about marriage at the altar many times, a young woman attracts the attention of a reporter (Richard Gere) who investigates her case. Remember the proposal scene? If you’re a rom-com fan, how could you not? For those looking to propose, here’s a refresher: “Look, I guarantee there’ll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is going to want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don’t ask you to be mine, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life, because I know, in my heart, you’re the only one for me.”
Sleepless in Seattle – Why don’t they make movies like this anymore? Starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, the ideal ’90s rom-com couple, the late Nora Ephron blessed us with this classic. The small son of a widower wants to help him find a new wife, so the boy calls into a radio station and gets his father (Hanks) to talk about himself and his situation. Annie (Ryan) hears the radio program and goes to Seattle to meet him.
The Wedding Planner – A busy wedding planner (Jennifer Lopez) realizes that she spends so much time organizing other people’s romances by way of their weddings that she doesn’t spend time thinking about her own love life. She then falls for a man (Matthew McConaughey) who is engaged to one of her of clients. And so begins their love story.
