Love, Actually

I’m a chick-flick kind of guy. No, not “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” kind of chick flick – I mean their pants don’t “travel” off their bodies, right? I’m talking rom-coms, which I guess are their own chick flick subgenre.

Give me my wife, a bottle of wine, Meg Ryan, and call it a Saturday night.

My all-time favorite rom-com has to be Love Actually. It’s quirky, sentimental, has a killer cast, and let’s be honest; everything is cooler with British accents.

SN: want a great drinking game? Take a sip (or chug) every time a character in the film says “actually”. It’s A LOT! 

The wife and I have watched Love Actually once a year, usually around the holidays, since we first started dating.

We quote the lines: “I HATE Uncle Jamie”, we laugh, we don’t cry, but we certainly snuggle.

Actually (drink), I think most men are rom-com guys. Don’t get me wrong, we love us some Transformers, but there’s something nice about picking a movie that you know will make you laugh a little and that your significant other will just love.

Perhaps they need to rename the genre, how about dick flicks? Nah, that won’t work.

    Z – T and I watch Love Actually every year, also! I have been obsessed with it since it was released in theaters, and I had just come back from study abroad in London. That movie holds a very special place in my heart. I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes.

    It’s one of your dad’s and my favorite rom-coms. We love the scene where Hugh dances to the Pointer Sister’s song “Jump.”
    Love the acronym “rom-com” too actually!

    One of the best movies of all times “Just in cases” you have not seen it I highly recommend it. I too watch it every year but “actually” more than that.🙂
