Still need some help planning that special Valentine’s Day. Here are some of my favorite romantic movies. These are the ones I enjoy watching over and over again, if you don’t believe me just ask my husband.
The American President
Starring Michael Douglas as President Andrew Shepherd and Annette Benning as lobbyist Syndey Ellen Wade. One of my favorite parts of the movie is when Shepherd tries to buy flowers for Syndey. He is amazed that the most powerful man in the world can’t do something as simple as buy flowers for his girl.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
I love the transformation of Toula Portokalos from a shy and dumpy girl to a beautiful and confident young woman. Toula is 30 something, single and working in her family’s Greek resturant. Her dad Gus just wants her to marry a nice Greek boy. After convining her dad to let her take some college classes the transformation begins. Toula meets and begins dating Ian Miller, a non-greek. Nia Vardalos wrote and stars in the movie. It is loosly based on her life. Vardalos’s husband Ian Gomez plays Ian Miller’s best friend Mike. Also, several of her family members appear as extras in the movie.
Sweet Home Alabama
Reese Witherspoon plays Melanie Carmichael from a small town in Alabama who has traded her humble beginnings for the big city. She has become a successful fashion designer in New York City. She becomes engaged to the mayor’s (Candice Bergen) son (Patrick Dempsey) but there is one catch. She is still married to Jake (Josh Lucas) who is back home in Alabama and has refused to sign the divorice papers.
