The last rom-com I saw was that McConaughey movie, Ghost of Girlfriends Past. :?
But then, I haven't see a rom-com that I liked in a long while.


Is that not what makes him believable ? Plus, considering he is supposed to Rob Reiner, I think you got the better option.


Matthew Mahogany is the devil. Where did it all go wrong, he showed so much promise.

Yeah, they're fairly generic these days. Last one I gave a shit about was High Fedelity ... The other Hornby adaption was decent too, Fever Pitch (The Baseball one, not the Arsenal version)

John Hughes RIP.

The 80s revival is over.

My current favourite thing is Green Porno http://www.sundancechannel.com/greenporno/ Ridiculous short films on the mating habits of bugs and sea creatures, written, directed and starring Isabella Rosillini. Series two is the best of the three.
