It’s Fun Friday

It’s Friday, so you know what that means!  New movies come out in theaters.  Whether you like to go to movies or not (I don’t), you must have a favorite movie or movies.

I’d like to share my 3 favorite romance movies with you.  Now these just aren’t my favorites, they are more like a comfort blanket to me.  I’ve watched them during each sad, happy, confusing, miserable, and sick time in my life, and each time I’ve felt better after I did.

These are in no particular order.  I love them all the same:


From the first moment my mom showed me the 1959 movie Pillow Talk, I fell in love with Doris Day, Rock Hudson, and Tony Randall.  I wanted this sweet love story to be my life.  I had fallen in love with Rock Hudson and I wanted to be Doris Day.  Granted, I was only a little girl, maybe not even in my teens yet, that’s when I fell in love with being in love.  This movie is a true classic of what romance movies are all about.


Once again, I’d like to give credit to my mom for introducing this laugh-and-cry-at-the-same-time delightful and wonderful movie.  The first time I saw P.S. I Love You, I went through half a box of tissues.  I laughed and cried until it hurt, but because I could relate to the characters.  This movie is for anyone who has or is in love, and knows what it’s like to be in love.  After watching this movie, I promise you that it will teach you not to sweat the small stuff in any relationship.


 Oh, come on now, you know that When Harry Met Sally had to be on my list!  I don’t know where or how old I was when I first saw this movie, but what I do remember is that for thee days in a row when I was sick, I watched this movie over and over, and over and over.  “Why can’t I have that life?” I wondered.  I had a male best friend when I was younger, and life (on-screen) seemed so easy.  (Oh, and don’t forget about the fake orgasm scene — it’s kinda’ famous, ha, ha!)  Who wouldn’t want to fall in love with their best friend?  This movie shows how over time things and people can change, but how love can grow, even when you didn’t think it was possible!

I’d love to know, what are your favorite romance movies and why?

Have a great weekend!

  1. Great choices! Pillow Talk is a classic! If I had to pick my Top 3 romantic movies, they would have to be:

    1) Gone With the Wind – I became entranced by this movie when I was 9 years old. The passionate, contentious relationship between Scarlett and Rhett was so entertaining! Has there ever been a better break-up line than Rhett Butler’s, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

    2) Princess Bride – I’ve always been a sucker for fairy tales and this film was just so sweet, funny, and romantic. Buttercup and Westley were such a charming pair and I enjoyed watching them overcome all the obstacles thrown in their path.

    3) The Notebook – How could any woman with a pulse not swoon over that scene with Noah and Allie kissing in the rain? Amazing! And their love story was so poignant and inspiring. SIGH This movie also opened my eyes to what a talented, charismatic actor Ryan Gosling is. My crush on him continues to this day.
