VALENTINE'S DAY WEEKEND MARATHON

We loved it so much last year, we decided to do it again. Last year with macarons, this year with chocolate mousse and cream puffs. 😍
  1. P.S. I Love You (2007)
    I am usually not a Gerard Butler fan, but I liked him in this movie! Really sweet and emotional. Definitely on the verge of tears a few times. So happy with that ending. 🙌🏽
  2. Top Five (2014)
    I literally randomly put this on because I was waiting for @karebear to go to Publix and didn't want to watch something on our list without her, but she liked it so much that she stayed and watched, haha! I really liked that it addressed life after sobriety in a way I hadn't really seen before. Had a few scenes I skipped because they made me uncomfortable 😳. Loved seeing so many incredible guest stars - Michael Che, Leslie Jones, Jay Pharoah, Anders Holm?!
  3. How to Be Single (2016)
    I already told you guys how much I love this film. I still love it just as much the second time around. I literally want to rewatch it again, especially for the baby store scene. "Did I just win the lottery?!"
  4. Monte Carlo (2011)
    I watched this in theaters years ago and put this on while waiting for @karebear to get some work done/wake up? I'm not sure, lol. It's a cute movie for when you're a pre-teen, but at age 22, I didn't mind watching for the clothes and Cory Monteith. 😭
  5. Sabrina (1954)
    Audrey Hepburn's character is so dumb in love, but I feel like there are so many people like that that I can't fault the film, lol. Bogart and Holden were great in their respective parts. Enjoyable, but nothing special. Curious about the 1997 remake now.
  6. The Seven Year Itch (1955)
    OH MY GOSH wayyyyy better than I expected. Ewell was MADE for his part. He's neurotic and has completely misplaced confidence and you know he's doing something wrong, but you're still laughing at his antics. I LOVED Monroe's character. She knows exactly what she wants; she's not as dumb as she seems. The ending fight scene went over the top for me, however.
  7. Forget Paris (1995)
    People always talk about how romcoms address the chase of love, but not what happens after a couple gets together. Well, here you go. Billy Crystal wrote and directed this one. I thought it was very well done - touched on a LOT of very real marital issues from living with a parent to pregnancy struggles. You could see both perspectives; I didn't feel like it demonized either person. Love how the title is drawn in to the film.
  8. Annie Hall (1977)
    PURE. GENIUS. SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST. I started watching this during winter break and then loved it so much that I decided to save the rest for this marathon. I now understand why every romcom lover freaks out over this film. Woody's writing is absolutely remarkable and something I look forward to studying more. I was surprised how much I liked Diane's voice! If only people realized how thought-provoking and interesting romcoms could be...
