Our 3 year aniversary today and my budget will stretch as far as a movie rental any ideas?
Well what have you already seen?
I'd go for Love Actually - top film, really funny! Unless you've seen it of course.
The best rental I've seen recently was 'Into The Blue' with Paul Walker and Jessica Alba. Part under water tropical stuff, part thriller, part action, and Jessica Alba in a Bikini for most of it
Difficult weve seen Love actually and both really love this film. Something along those lines would be great. We dont watch that many romantic movies so there should be a few out there we ahvent seen.
How about 'quirkier' options? My girlfriend and I watched 'The Station Agent' and 'Pieces of April' recently and really enjoyed them both - diferent takes on relationships, family, etc. Both really worth watching.
Or how about 'Beautiful Girls' - slightly older but again, a brilliant take on relationships amongst a group of friends.
Hope you get something sorted
The notebook,my missus forced me to watch this and i have to say it made me laugh and left me with a lump in my throat, not part of the wifes anatomy but it really is a sad ending
If you dont mind an oldie and the shop has them try this weepy An Affair to Remember.
"Moulin Rouge"......or a rerun of the Bahrain Grand Prix
I would also go for into the blue, enough enjoyment for the both of you.
The Descent ......guaranteed to get her over to your couch very quickly!!
if you haven't already seen it, let me suggest "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind", it's a different sort of romance movie but very worth seeing
I havent watched this, but Pride and Prejudice, not sure if you can count that as Romance, but it does have Keira in it
Wicker Park - was really good, an ending that tugs at the heart strings
What Dreams May Come, bargain at £4.99 too.
Thanks for all the replies guys. I narrowed it down to Eternal Sunshine, The Constant Gardner or a mystery choice? Which of course she went for. I happened on this movie whilst searching the online section of our video store and as we have been watching a lot of Westwing lately it attracted my attention. The mrs is a politics student so coming up with a film that features both politics and a romance was an ace card. We both really enjoyed the film and it must have been the inspiration for the Westwing series as several actors, names and quotes are reused in the series!
So a really nice evening was had by us both. Thanks
What was the mystery choice?
Wag The Dog?
Battlefield Earth at a guess!!!
Now I purposely didnt say in the hope somebody would guess. Ive already given a clue in my last post so heres another. Its not a recent film its from the mid 90s at a guess.
I'd have guessed The American President with Michael Douglas & Annette Bening.
I'd have suggested Chasing Amy as good viewing though (well, it's sorta romantic).
And you would be right good sir
I'd second this, I'd not even heard of this until a friend suggested it (and I certainly didn't recognise any of the actors) but I thought it was a very touching film and the 2 leads (Ryan Gosling, Rachael McAdams) had great chemistry together. I'm sure your partner would love it, it's full of emotion and I'm sure you'll need the tissues for her - what more could you want!?
whilst the constant gardener and eternal sunshine are good movies, they aren't really the ideal date movie, maybe you'll understand after seeing them
again, unless your girl is a lesbian, chasing amy isn't really going to be the most appropriate date movie for an anniversary
your probably best to stick to the notebook, and poke yourself in the eye from time to time to shed a few tears to get the real sympathy vote
oh, and also checkout just friends after you've seen notebook
i'v ordered the notebook on the ravings you guys are giving it.
You will not be disappointed, it is not at all far fetched,very believable, and the ending is so well done.A true story of love and tragedy,
Yep, "THE NOTEBOOK" and "UNFAITHFUL" are fine films!
Aaah, you see that's way I said Primary Colours as you mentioned a liking of The West Wing. Most of the main WW cast is in this.
But then again I suppose it not exactly a mood setter.
Is it a good film?
THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT I would guess at - one of my daughters favourite movies.(starring Michael Douglas and Annette Bening).
