Rom Com's - The ultimate mood setter



Someone asked last week if I had particular movies I use to get my creative juices flowing.

My answer? As a matter of fact, YES. I do.

And they are ALL romantic comedies. Obviously, this is because I write romance, and I love to laugh, so these all get me into the "mood" to write and get the wheels in my little brain a-turning.

Many of these are old, but they are my favorite, and ones that I watch over... and over... and over... and over again because they, imho, are classic romantic comedies that make me sigh and laugh every time.

Top Ten Romantic Comedy's (through the eyes of Krista)
  1. How to Lose a Guy in 10 days

  2. While you were Sleeping

  3. Never been kissed

  4. Runaway Bride

  5. Sweet Home Alabama

  6. The Princess Bride

  7. Kate and Leopold

  8. The Cutting Edge

  9. Sleepless in Seattle

  10. You've Got Mail


Okay, there are MANY more that are a close tie with these.... Anybody else have some good suggestions?

**side note** Daddy's surgery is at 7:00 this morning. Thanks everyone, for your prayers!

I love your list and have watched all of those too! I can usually find one or two great romantic comedies that come out a year. Just watched 17 again. It was hilarious and sweet.

Will be praying for your dad today! Keep us updated!

I have a huge soft spot for Love Actually. But I'm quite into British Humor. And I love PS I Love You and Definitely Maybe. Plus most of the ones on your list.

Praying for your dad.

I love You've Got Mail! I also just watched Definitely, Maybe. I really liked that one!

Praying for you and your Dad today!

I LOVE all those romantic comedies!
But you need to rent "French Kiss" and "Made of Honor". :)

I'm praying!

And I love all the same movies as you, and they do get the words flowing for me too.

Candee Fick said...

Praying also.

Love your list and wish I could watch more of them. Currently, I have to fight for the remote and then listen to my boys (two small, one husband)complain or make gagging noises. Kinda ruins the mood.

A good cowboy movie or tv show will usually start ideas flowing.

Rio Bravo
El Dorado
The Magnificent Seven (movie and tv show)


Praying for your dad, and for you!

Cindy said...

Those are great ones--I love them all. I'll keep praying for your dad.

I've never seen how to lose a guy in 10 days from the beginning. Just caught the end. Is it really that good? I mean it's a ten day relationship right? I think I was under the impression they sleep together within that time frame and was put off. Tell me if you think I should rent this.

Monster-in-Law and Two Weeks Notice!

Beth said...

Love this post! You've Got Mail is in my top 5 for sure. I'd add Pride and Prejudice, When Harry Met Sally, Sabrina, Under the Tuscan Sun, Princess Bride, I could go on...

Praying for your Dad for sure!

Hi Krista -

Sleepless in Seattle is one of the few movies I'd watch more than once. I even considered getting the soundtrack. Hmm, maybe I'll see if I can find a DVD.

Blessings,
Susan :)

I love the list! I have only not seen a couple of them. Every time I think about The Cutting Edge I hear "toe pick" in my head. lol

I hope everything went well today!

Tara said...

I love you've got mail. And any fairy tale or fantasy will get me started on a project of my own. And old favorite is Flight of Dragons.

Daddy's surgery went well... he's in ICU but recovering, prayers still apreciated becuase he has a tough recovery ahead of him.

Your movie suggestions are GREAT and MOST of them I HAVE watched and love... I was just trying to limit my list to 10:-)

How to lose a guy in 10 days... I loved it, but *yes* they did sleep together ... kinda. (I don't like that part ... but it's a secular movie so can't expect a LOT more ... language isn't TOO bad though ... my ultra conservative mother watched and laughed)

It's FUNNY though... and it has Matt in it. And that's all I got to say about that cause I'm a married woman:-)

Jill Kemerer said...

That's one rockin' list! The Cutting Edge is one of my all-time favorite movies. I think I know every line. Okay, I do know every line. That's sad.

"What do you shower once a week?"

"Is that an invitation?"

I have to watch it again! Hope your dad's surgery goes well!

Absolutely love The Princess Bride. Have you read it? The book's a riot.

Tina M. Russo said...

I own 8 of those on DVD.

I would add, Return to Me, One Fine Day, Runaway Bride and Failure to Launch.


Keep us posted on your dad's recovery.

Ahhh, classics! I love every single one of those. But I haven't seen Kate and Leopold. Hmmm...
