Hopelessly Romantic

Happy Tuesday All,

If you're anything like me, you're a hopeless romantic. Although, I suppose because I'm married to my own personal hero, people could  argue I'm not really hopeless, so I guess I could amend the phrase and say I'm hopelessly romantic.

Monday night one of the channels on TV was showing the movie, Only You starring Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. I've seen it before, but it's been awhile. I missed most of it, but I did get to see the scene where Robert Downey Jr. as Peter, is holding onto the  edge of a yacht declaring his love to Marisa Tomei's character, Faith. Gotta love seeing a guy yelling out "I'm crazy about you! You're going to miss me!"

These type of movies and scenes are part of what inspires me as a writer. I'm a huge fan of fairy tales, and in a way Only You and some of the other romantic movies out there are types of fairy tales. I love stuff like it. I know, I'm so mushy.

What romantic movies leave you feeling like mush?

Have A Terrific Tuesday!

I LOVE 'Only You'! It is one of my all-time favorites.I also liked Robert Downey's Heart and Souls'.Another huge favorite is 'While You Were Sleeping' with Sandra Bullock...but my all-time, cry-every-time-in several-spots-but-feel-happy-and-hopeful-at-the-end movie is 'Return To Me', with Minnie Driver and David Ducovney, (written and directed by co-star Bonny Hunt).Do you know it?If you don't ,PLEASE see it!

I have heard of RETURN TO ME...in fact that movie has a special meaning to my husband and I. I have also seen WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING. Those are good.
