I like romantic comedies...?

I like romantic comedies. I like happy, predictable endings. I want to know that Kate Hudson is going to end up in the arms of Matthew McConaughey. I go to great efforts to make sure that I watch movies that fit into this mold - and thankfully, the movie industry helps out with such classics as: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Runaway Bride, and Notting Hill. In fact, there is a solid list of "RomComs" as they are commonly called on the Wikipedia page. Check it.

Fun fact? I once got a friend to stop A Walk to Remember - you know the movie where Mandy Moore gets cancer - right before she gets cancer. Yep, to the rest of the world this is a sad movie... for me, LOVE STORY with a HAPPY ENDING.

So, it was shocking to me when I found the desire to see The Town with Ben Affleck. Yes, he's handsome for sure and that didn't hurt - but it had also gotten great reviews. The reviews didn't disappoint either, it was a really great movie.

I don't want to spoil it for any of you, so I'll leave you with a few tidbits:
  • Blake Lively was believable as a Charlestown young mother/druggie ... not that I really know what one would be like, but regardless. She was on point.
  • Jon Hamm .... hottie.
  • pretty descent ending... especially considering you know how I love fairy tales.
All in all. I'd highly recommend it. After all, you probably still want to give Ben Affleck a chance to redeem himself after dating Jennifer Lopez and tricking us all into watching Gigli.

Here is a clip in the event you were still wavering...
