Cheesy Romance Month: Kate & Leopold

kate_and_leopold_ver2… It’s back!!! It is that special month of love and as such, it is time to talk about those silly little rom-coms that I save up for such an occasion. Welcome back to year 4 of Cheesy Romance Month! All things considered, I am surprised that I have not talked more about Meg Ryan movies. All things considered, she is the queen of the cheesy romantic comedy, and yet, the only one I touched so far was You’ve Got Mail and that was the first one that I ever did years ago.

Cheesy Romance Month: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

HowToLoseAGuyimpDuring our adventure into the realms of cheesy romances, we have delved into the 90’s with You’ve Got Mail and the 80’s with Sixteen Candles. So now it is only logical that we keep this decade motif going strong and delve into the 2000’s.

Truly it was a time where ‘Ah fuck it’ was a little on the high end after the party that was the 90’s ended. Rom Coms and the cheesy romances was no exception to this rule and thus we have How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Based on a book by Michele Alexander and Jeannie Long and starring all time professional mellow good looking dude Matthew McConaughey, and professional blonde Kate Hudson, this movie truly is a staple of early 2000’s cheesy romance.
