Classick Cinema: My Guilty Pleasure (The League)


This week’s challenge for The League of Extraordinary Bloggers

Guilty Pleasures

Other than certain aspects of my life, Classick is pretty much an open book online. But what you might not know is that other than action, fantasy, sci-fi, drama and sports documentary, there is a certain genre of movie that I am actually quite enamored with. Two words… ROM COM! Yes, Classick digs the romantic comedies!

Now let’s be clear, we’re not talking just any rom com!! I’ve sat through and despised How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days and will never forgive my relatives for making me sit through numerous Tyler Perry films (what’s next? Madea Joins the UFC and Fights GSP?), however there are some films within that genre that are more hit than miss with me.

But listen, fellas, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a good love story every now and then. And if you can curl up with the Mrs. (or Miss) and share some popcorn while this plays, then that’s points for you! I’ve watched these flicks on dates and alone, but I have no shame in saying that I enjoy them. I’ll humor you with a few of them (posters and trailers below):

French Kiss

Forget Paris

L.A. Story

Runaway Bride

You’ve Got Mail

For Love Or Money

I Hate Valentine’s Day

Welp, that’ s my guilty pleasure… what’s yours?

    That’s amazing work. You’re just a big softy!! Meg Ryan podcast ep! Do it! or not.

    I think Madea joining UFC would be one way to get me to watch one of those.

    I am so with you on the chick flicks thing. You’ve got Mail, Addicted to Love, French Kiss, A Cool Dry Place, Dream for an Insomniac etc etc etc. I had a tough time with that topic (and ultimately decided to “punt”) because I shamelessly stand proud for all the stuff I like. No guilt!

    …Remember that part in you’ve got mail when she figures out that Fox and her pen pal are the same guy? Heartbreaking… *sigh.
