    I don't really see a lot of those, but I remember I enjoyed Along Came Polly and the Adam Sandler movie where there girl has memory loss and he has to remind her of her life every morning, I forget what it's called.

    I own that movie...great one! Jack Lemmon is a master actor, I love him in The Out-of-Towners.

    My favorite has to be 'When Harry Met Sally'. Meg Ryan is a bit annoying but all in all a great comedy.

    I liked "French Kiss". Kevin Kline is awesome in that movie, and I am not a Meg Ryan fan, but her neorotic personality fit that particular film very well.

    I oppose on principal any movie where people get together and kiss over swelling music in either a rain or snow storm. Smarter people kiss inside where they won't catch pneumonia.

    I don't really like romantic comedy (though I already picked a movie in one of my earlier posts). For a change, they should make a movie in which the guy ends up losing the girl to someone and either
    a. kills both the girl and her new guy because he is too possessive
    or
    b. accepts life for what it is and moves on
    or
    c. accepts life for what it is but is too attached to the girl to even think about being with someone else but is happy she has atleast found love in someone else

    I suppose I am just too addicted to bollywood movies :)

    It's got everything...great story, funny lines, tons of great actors, all around X-mas cheer and oh yeah...

    Hot naked chicks!

    Well, at least one naked girl.

    Roxanne with Steve Martin

    I like several of the others that have been mentioned here too though.

    Another good one is Four Weddings and a Funeral. (Who can ever forget Rowan Atkinsons priest in that movie... :)

    Yes, Roxanne is a good one! Steve Martin is great in this. Plus, to tie it into this forum, he plays tennis on the noggins of a couple of bullies who make fun of his nose!

    Another great Steve Martin movie (or two-the sequal also) is:

    Father of the Bride
    Father of the Bride II

    Martin Short is hilarious in these two pics also.

    'The Forty Year Old Virgin' and 'Mickey Blue Eyes' are my favorites. Also, 'The Princess Bride' is excellent.

    Favorite romantic comedy? How 'bout "Deliverance"?<G>Hehehe.. Just kidding. I think "When Harry Met Sally" would have to be pretty high up there.

    I think I'll agree about Serendipity; it's definitely one of my favorite romantic comedies especially because of John Cusack. Sleepless in Seattle was okay, too.

    That is nothing to joke about. So, please think twice before posting such vile assumptions about people you know nothing about.

    Let's leave it at that and I'll give you a free pass...this time.


    BACK TO THE TOPIC AT HAND:

    How about John Cusack's movies?:

    Say Anything... ("Lloyd, Lloyd, all null and void!" ...funny stuff...)
    High Fidelity (Jack Black kills in this movie...that guy is sooooooo funny.)
    Grosse Pointe Blank (with the uniquely sexy Minnie Driver.)

    I love great movies...I'm sure I'll think of more later. Since it is Friday, and, who works on Friday?

    Gotta go...there's the boss!

    Not sure I agree with that. For sure, it is the top three, along with Airplane! and Blazing Saddles.

    "You have clearance, Clarence." "Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor?"


    On the serious side, "The Power of One" has to be one of the best movies made.


    Romatic comedy, "Return to Me" is my favorite.

    If you like Cusack, then you need to rent "The Sure Thing." Nicollette Sheridan at her best...

    Also a very cool movie...John Cusack has always been one of my favorite actors. Actually, his sister, is high on my list too. She is so funny in too many roles to mention. One of my favorites being 'Where the Heart Is' with Natalie Portman.

    Gotta be "Kung Pow"
    When the Chosen one finally professes his love to Ling...Weeeouuu!

    "Princess Bride" is fantastic
    "Notting Hill" stands out as a "watch again" movie
    Never cared for Harry & Sally...
    I always liked "10 things I hate about you"

    Surprised you didn't say "10 Things I Hate About You" give your avatar.

    Good movie

    For older movies, I liked Mannequin and Breakfast Club.
    Newer ones, I liked Lampoon's Van Wilder. :lol:
