    Which is better?

    Where do they fall in the Romantic Comedy Rainbow - which has got "Two Week's Notice" at the dirty, sitting in a puddle end, & has the likes of "Amelie" & "Notting Hill" at the brighter, pot of gold end.

    P.S.

    Yes, I know they're all chick flicks, that's just one of my favourite genres, along with plenty of nice violent stuff :)

    Sweet Home Alabama is better.

    6/10 for that. 4/10 for How to Lose a Guy.

    Subjected to both, agree with Daneel, would rather eat my own scrotum than watch them ever again.

    Iam, surely the benchmark for all rom coms is When Harry met sally which in my opinion is the greatest rom com ever and one of the best films ever.

    Just a thought.

    I never liked When Harry met Sally much.

    My favs are:

    Martha meet Frank, Daniel and Lawrence
    Jerry Maguire (it's more than just a romcom but still)
    Almost Famous
    A Walk in the Clouds (even with Keanu I still thought it was good)

    Thanks, I've got "When Harry met Sally", like it, but prefer others.

    I've decided to wait until "Sweet Home" comes out on Sky, forget about "How to Lose etc", & have just ordered "Martha Meet etc" - only £6.99 at Play.

    Pretty much that, & the price; & I will, unless I forget.

    Remembered.

    Just watched it & thought it very good, nice recommendation, thanks.

    Overall I found it a clever film as much as a romance or a comedy, tho it is also comic (amusing rather than hilarious) & romantic.
