10 rom-coms you may have forgotten about

While most everyone is out celebrating, I’m staying in with a glass of wine, my dog, chocolate and some rom-coms.

A couple weeks ago, I was watching a rom-com and thought about some others that may have been forgotten.

1. Kate and Leopold
This was the movie that sparked the thoughts of forgotten rom-coms. Talk about a young, hunky and goofy Hugh Jackman!

2. He’s Just Not That Into You
To that one friend I watched this with, I sincerely apologize for talking throughout the entire movie because I already saw it.

3. The 5 Year Engagement 
Speaking of this, I totally need to watch it again.

4. Maid In Manhattan
I’m sorry, but I can only see Christopher Marshall as Volemort. I do love this movie though!

5. The Back-Up Plan
I can totally see this happening in real life. Plus Alex O’Laughlin is sooo cute here!

7. When In Rome
A girl who is kinda unlucky in love + a hunky sports reporter+weddings in Rome=OBSESSED. The men who are “cursed” by Beth are hilarious.

8. Just Go With It
Totally predictable, but totally hilarious and cute! And ~*SpOiLeR*~ Andy Roddick is at the end!

9. This Means War
The premise isn’t new, the story line isn’t so creative and I’ve heard it being called mind-numbling stupid, but Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine? I’m in!

10. Life As We Know It
A cute baby + a sports guy = LOVE. I kinda have a thing for Josh Duhamel, in rom-coms, playing a sports guy… (Safe Haven is pretty good also) Plus that house? #goals.

What other forgotten rom-coms are your favorites? Do you have big plans for tomorrow?
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

  • Omgggg. He’s Just Not That Into You. I so remember dragging one of my high school friends with me to see that. I was in the middle or trying to figure out if a guy I liked had mutual feelings and I thought maybe that movie would help me. Good times.
