Happy Valentine’s Day
I’d be a very remiss romance author if I didn’t blog on Valentine’s Day. And because I love, love, love romantic movies, I’d be equally remiss if I didn’t mention a few of my favorites…
As far as I’m concerned, this movie is very nearly perfect. Nicolas Cage’s raw passion. Cher’s dreamy walk down the streets of Brooklyn. The Met! I can watch this movie over and over. And over. I really should snap out of it…
Oh – what isn’t to love about this fantastic movie. Annette Benning as a strong, smart woman who finds a man who loves that about her. Michael Douglas looking like he’s having a lot of fun playing the Prez. Pure confectionary delight.
Confession – if this movie is on, I watch it. It doesn’t matter what else is on.
Second confession – if this movie is on back-to-back, I watch it through twice.
Third confessoin – if this movie runs all week as a lot of the cable networks are prone to do, I WATCH IT EACH AND EVERY TIME. I love it that much. (And I still own it, so I can watch it whenever I want, too!)
Another Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks winner. Even though they spend the entire movie apart, we viewers just know they’re meant to be together. And when the Empire State Building lights up with a big red heart. Well….how many more signs do you need that tell you this is movie perfection?
Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore as dueling divorce lawyers who fall in love (it has the added benefit of a twice-shirtless Michael Sheen). I absolutely love this movie – it has it all – the perpetual sexiness that is Pierce Brosnan and a dual-setting of New York and Ireland. Heaven.
So there you have it – the Addison Fox movie cannon. This is only the tip of the iceberg, but when it comes to frothy, fun romantic comedies, these are some of the gems that never fail to put a smile on my face.
Wishing you all a very happy Valentine’s Day and much love in your heart.
