50 First Dates
When womanizer Henry (Adam Sandler) meets Lucy (Drew Barrymore), he finds himself wanting to know her more. But a wrench is thrown into his plans when he learns that Lucy suffers from short-term memory loss. Nevertheless, Henry is not deterred and is determined to make Lucy fall in love with him every single day. 50 First Dates is beautifully humorous and heart-rending as the lovers fight to hold on to their relationship, despite the odds that are against them. This romance may lead you through many instances of laughter and tears during its 1 hour and 39 minutes run time, but the touching story makes the constant laugh-cry cycle worthwhile.
My rating: 5 out of 5 hearts
The Prince and Me
Small town meets royalty. Well, she doesn’t exactly know he’s royalty. When Paige (Julia Stiles) meets Eddie (Luke Mably), they don’t initially hit it off, but after spending time together they soon fall in love. Though things get difficult when Paige finds out that Eddie is actually Prince Edvard of Denmark. The Prince and Me is cheesy and predictable in the best way possible in this fairytale romance. This makes this lighthearted film perfect to stream if you’re looking for something easygoing yet entertaining to watch on Valentine’s Day.
My rating: 4 out of 5 hearts
When columnist Ike (Richard Gere) writes a story about a woman named Maggie (Julia Roberts) who leaves her grooms at the altar, he finds himself fired after neglecting to fact-check the details of his story. Looking to regain his job and repair his reputation, Ike heads to Maggie’s town to find out if she will leave her current beau at the altar once more. But while reporting for his follow-up story, Ike soon realizes he’s falling in love with Maggie. Runaway Bride is a charming romantic comedy, and Gere and Robert’s chemistry in this film turns a simple love story into something sensational.
