These movies are made for valentine’s day because of its happily ever after endings.
I’m a sucker for chick flicks. What’s not to love? Girl looking for love, girl finds love in unexpected place with unexpected guy, girl plays hard to get, guy gets girl anyway, both live happily ever after. Sure the plot is all the same, but each journey is different. And that’s what counts.
As women, we all wish to be swept off our feet by prince charming. At one point or another, we all wished to be one of the character in these movies. Sometimes it pans out. Sometimes it doesn’t. Then there are those times it works out better than the fantasies we watch on the big screen. Now that’s something.
Regardless of our current love life, we all get a little nostalgic of how we used to (or still do) perceive what it means to fall in love.
Before I found my happily ever after, before I found Angelo, this was my nostalgia…
Pride & Prejudice
Elizabeth Bennet, a strong willed woman from an “unfortunate” family background is forced to marry someone she does not love in order to help her family status. Back then (1800’s) it was every woman’s responsibility to marry and to marry into a good, and by “good” meaning “well off”, family. Lizzy meets Mr. Darcy, a very rich and very proud man. He falls in love with spirited Lizzy, a woman beneath his class, and now must prove to her that he is not the man she perceives him to be.
Paige and Leo make the ideal couple. It seems as though nothing could ever come between them, until the terrible accident that caused Paige to lose her memories and forget Leo. Now Leo is doing everything to make her fall in love with him again.
Allie, a rich girl falls in love with a poor boy, Noah. Both are inseparable until they are separated by Allie’s parents. Years laters, Noah builds their dream home hoping Allie would come back to him. At this point, Allie is engaged to be married to someone else. Will she go back to him?
Epic movie! No matter how many times I watch it, I still get goosebumps when Patrick Swayze says “Nobody puts Baby in the corner”
While You Were Sleeping
Lucy, a token collector at a train station is mistaken for Peter’s fiance, a man she saved from the train tracks. Now she is in too deep with his family and ends up falling in love with his brother, all while him being in a coma.
