I've seen the 18 in bold print. I don't tend to like "romantic comedies". Typically, they're too sweet/sappy for me, and I prefer the quirkier ones.


  1. Woot! I've seen 25. I'm a sucker for romantic comedies, if you can't tell :)

    1. i tend to sigh & roll my eyes and make disparaging comments during them lol

  2. I've seen 20! That's way more than I thought I'd have seen.

    1. i was surprised at the number i'd seen, too.

  3. I tend not to like romantic films either, but "Four Weddings and a Funeral" is a wonderful film. I saw it three times in a week, in the cinema, when it came out. There was this one bleak morning shot of London that I just loved so much. It´s more about love than romance, anyway. I dare you not to like it... ;-)

    1. i will pick that one up. my husband likes movies with happy endings, so i need to find a few romantic comedies we can watch together. thx for the suggestion :)

  4. I've seen 26 of the ones you haven't seen I would recommend Lars and the Real Girl, quirky and light hearted.

    1. goo. thx! i will get them & try them out on my husband. i had never even heard of those 2
