The best romantic comedies – Part 2

Are you ready for The best romantic comedies – Part 2? You bet we’re back with more stories that bring smiles on our faces and optimism in our love hungry hearts. Here are some new entries worth mentioning:

I sometimes love a good classic movie. It is definitely not true that all old movies are sappy and artificial. I personally enjoy a lot of classic movies – which gives us a new idea for a future article maybe. But for now, I will only mention a favorite of mine which just so happens to be a musical as well: My Fair Lady, a 1964 Hollywood movie starring the ever young and beautiful Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison. This is a story of an illiterate, but optimistic and generous florist, Eliza Doolittle, who becomes the pupil of a posh English aristocrat, Mr. Higgins. She will prove to be a blooming flower with a surprising development. I bet you can already guess the ending just by looking at the poster, but the movie is delicious from just so many reasons.

Bridget Jones’ Diaries (which is already a series of movies based on Helen Fielding’s books) is a very realistic and everyday story for a change. While the possibility of finding real love is indeed rare, these tongue in cheek movies bring about a change: they speak about the trials and joys of womanhood, love and the mundane existence in a light, yet revealing way.

500 Days of Summer… well, here is a love story with all the ingredients of a romantic comedy with a predictable happy ending, but which will prove to be a (welcome?) change from the norm. This postmodern story with a “not so very happily ever after ending” features Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a great display of artistic execution.
