This past weekend I saw two romantic comedies in the theater: The Ugly Truth and The Proposal.
The Ugly Truth features Gerard Butler, which is really all you have to know about it. Gerard Butler is also the only reason to see the movie, because everything else is pretty grim. Maybe Gerard is too, but who could possibly care when looking at him?
All I really remember from the movie is that face. Which, given what little else I recall, in unguarded moments, is all for the best.
The Proposal, on the other hand, was a perfect concoction. I fell in love! And while, yes, it may have had something to do with this:
...that was really just the icing on the cake. Why? Because I believed that the characters were who they said they were. I believed not only that they were falling in love, but that they should fall in love. The final scene in the publisher's office? Made me as giddy as a schoolgirl. Really.
If there is something better than a perfect romantic comedy, I don't know what it is.
What's your favorite?
