Lately I've been trying to catch up on movies, and this weekend I watched 2 movies. Both of them, I admit, are romantic comedies, but that's the kind of mood I've been in lately. Both of them were also super cute, and I recommend them to anyone who wants a feel-good movie. Friday night I watched Ghosts of Girlfriends Past starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner. It's losely based on the premise of A Christmas Carol, but centers around Matthew's brother's marriage and his own tendency to be cynical and sleep around. Jennifer Garner's kind of his first girlfriend who was his best friend as a kid. That's all I'll say. Saturday afternoon Casey and I watched The Proposal starring Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock. When Sandra's about to be deported back to Canada, she tells her boss she's getting married to Ryan and can't be shipped off. Problem? She's his nasty boss and he loathes her very existence. He plans on going to Alaska to his grandma's birthday for the weekend and she's drug along to tell the family they're engaged.

I think what I just love about romantic comedies is knowing however much the two hate each other or whatever they need to overcome, whether it be another relationship or some sort of parental unacceptance or otherwise, they always end up together in the end. I almost watched The Break Up last night on Lifetime (I know, I know, two movies in a day?) but stopped myself because they don't end up together and I couldn't get into it. How sad is that?


  1. I just watched the Proposal the other weekend too. I love Ryan Reynolds! Cute movie. I probably wouldn't buy it, but I enjoyed it while I watch it.

  2. We actually went out and saw that one too. (I guess I lied when I said the last movie I saw was Star Trek in May. Must have forgotten about this one.) Loved it. Betty White stole the show, though, IMHO.
