"If you were a melody... I used only the good notes."
Bridget Jones Diary
I love Hugh Grant, his accent and sexy crows feet, even though he plays the bad guy.
"I'll just be hanging around the mistletoe, hoping to be kissed."
The Family Stone
This romantic comedy is all somehow true to the message of Christmas. I think this is why I cry. Because when the final element is introduced – that mum is dying of cancer – and Everett and his mother end their bitter spat in tears over this, there is brokenness perfected by love. This is it – this the why of Christmas. We are a broken people, a broken world, with imperfection; there is no sense and no hope until love breaks into this brokenness, right into the thick of it and somehow, makes it beautiful.
While You Were Sleeping
A decently, traditional and predictable romantic comedy that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and at the end of it all, sigh a sigh of admiration.
