This got so long and essentially turned into a list of my favourite romcoms, which I wasn’t expecting it to, but as I was googling and looking at other lists I kept going “OMG, that one! I love that one!” so this list exploded and I know I’m missing a ton of classics, but there had to be an end to the list at some point. I probably won’t watch J.Lo’s new one (Wedding Day??), but I’m hoping we can revive the romcom genre. I like that they tend to be shorter movies (you don’t always want to sit down for 3 hours for a single movie) and they are light and pleasant.
Anyways, there are definitely enough movies to fill an entire “avoid society” Valentine’s Weekend or plenty of options for a movie night or slumber party themed Galentine’s Party!
The Map of Tiny Perfect Things – Amazon
So I actually haven’t seen this one, but Becca Freeman from the Bad on Paper podcast talked about this when it came out and that’s been in my head for probably a year now so it’s probably about time I watched it.
