Why Didn’t You Write??*
After recently reading Mindy Kaling’s book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (which, btw, could also be a title for a book we might write on our college experience), we started thinking about her love of romantic comedies (one of the more clever sections of the book – along with the list of things all men should do to be attractive), we started thinking…where have all the good
men romantic comedies gone?? The first decade of the 2000s brought so many gems…The Holiday, 27 Dresses, Sweet Home Alabama, Love Actually, My Best Friend’s Wedding, He’s Just Not That Into You, The Proposal, and Wedding Crashers (okay, so Wedding Crashers is a bit untraditional, but it’s a goodie). What have we had lately? Life As We Know It? How Do You Know? Ugh. Major Bleh.** Dear Hollywood, please hear our cry…Reese, Katherine Heigl, Sandra Bullock, come back to us! Give us the When Harry Met Sally of the present. elaney girls, help us…are there any recent or coming soon romcoms that might be worth seeing?
*Such a great line from The Notebook
**The one exception might be Crazy, Stupid, Love which was pretty g. Ryan Gosling – from Lars and the Real Girl to The Notebook to Half Nelson…you’ve never done us wrong.
