I have an eclectic taste when it comes to romantic comedies. That’s not to say I’m a movie snob – quite the contrary, really. I enjoy a pointless movie as much as the next gal, and sometimes Oscar bait and critic favorites leave me cold. I’m easily amused and will watch pretty much anything involving a good premise, or an actor I like.
I’ve enjoyed myself immensely watching flicks that tanked at the box office, and sometimes have no interest in huge hits like Notebook or the Titanic.
Some movies I enjoy just because they make 2 hours pleasantly go by. They’re not pretentious or thought-provoking, they’re just meant as good fun, and they actually deliver. Magic Mike, Two Night Stand, No Strings Attached, Friends With Benefits, Easy A were all thoroughly enjoyable. Others are deeper, sadder, more complex, such as Silver Linings Playbook, the underappreciated The Oranges, Crazy, Stupid, Love, or even Win Win.
