One of my favorite movies is Sleepless in Seattle. Although it is classified as a “Chick Flick”, I nonetheless have to watch it every time it appears on my TV. There is just something about this movie that keeps me coming back for more. It seems that every time I watch, a new wrinkle suddenly appears out of nowhere.

The casting and directing were first rate. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan as star-crossed lovers were perfect in the leading roles, while Rob Reiner makes a perfect sidekick in his small bit part. Rita Wilson, Hanks’ real life wife also plays a part as part of the in-law pair that compares An Affair to Remember to the Dirty Dozen. Even Wilson has to laugh as the men start crying when describing the action of the war movie.

Bill Pullman and Rose O’Donnell play supporting roles as well, help Ryan’s character to realize that she is not in love Walter.

The final climactic scene involves a trip to New York by Hanks’ son who wants to meet his new mother. After flying cross country in pursuit of Noah, Hanks and Ryan finally connect on top of the Empire State Building where they discover they have met before. The movie ends in the elevator as the two stare into each others eyes, seemingly oblivious to the rest of the world.

Thanks for the post from Hal Potter.

If somebody asked me what my favorite chick flick was, I wouldn’t even have to think about it. By far, Grease is the best chick flick you could watch. I mean, what else could you want? There is a lot of musical numbers, something I’ve always enjoyed. The clothes are simply divine; at least, if you can appreciate clothes from the 1950s. And the plot is cute, especially if you’re a fan of love stories.

I think this movie could be enjoyed by people of all ages. Kids can watch because they may not understand some of the more adult jokes. The adults, depending on their age, can reminisce about times gone by. I actually got my grandma to see it once, and she ended up talking to me about raising my mom back then, and what it was like.

The music is very catchy; even if a person has never seen the movie, chances are they know about the songs. I mean, they’ve played on the radio numerous times. Not all of them are the best, but many of them are. You just want to stand up and dance, whether you’re in the office or on the road.

Definitely, if a person is looking for a good time, they should check out Grease. Sometimes, if I’m lucky, I may catch it on Satellite tv; and when I do, you couldn’t pry me away.

Yup. A trailer for Katherine Heigl’s new romantic comedy, The Ugly Truth, has been released. If you couldn’t guess it, Heigl portrays a romantically challenged woman who is looking for Mr. Right. This time, Mr. Right is being played by Gerard Butler, who made the ladies swoon from the afterlife in P.S. I Love You. The film co-stars Cheryl Hines, Bonnie Somerville, Bree Turner, and Eric Winter, and was helmed by Robert Luketic (21, Legally Blonde).

What do you think, should Heigl continue making predictable romantic comedies or surprise us with something new?
