A few films GR and I enjoy watching in bed- Please help me find more like them?
Often, it's hard to relate to contemporary romance films because much of their acting in the romance department stinks; they usually lack genuine passion. But we do like contemporary romance films as long as they are done right.
GR and I do not care for romance films that include major, almost slapstick comedy. They are just dumb to us. And when we choose a film to watch, the main characters do not always have to be our age as long as the film is really good. A few examples of those that we do enjoy are the following:
*Walk the Line- Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon
*The Notebook (one of our absolute favorites)- Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, James Garner, Gena Rowlands
*Something's Gotta Give- Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton
*As Good As It Gets- Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Greg Kinnear
Some of our film preferences are because of the story line, some are because of the actors/actresses and some are both. Can anyone please help me find similar types of films that we can purchase to watch at home? And p--l--e--a--s--e, do not suggest anything starring Diane Lane or Julia Roberts. They are two people whose acting I cannot stomach. I've actually purchased DVD's of films they starred in, watched them and then threw the DVD's away.
