It returns!!!!!!! It is that time of year once again! The time when the red roses and box of chocolates are at the top of our minds as we look at that lovely time of saccharine sweet romance that is the month of February and Valentine’s Day. With that in mind, I decided to return Cheesy Romance Month to my site! This month I will have a look at four of the cheesiest, goofiest, and most all around dorky comedies that I could conjure out of the depth of our culture. These Romantic Comedies will range from enjoyable fun to absolute mind numbing crap, but at least we will be on this adventure together… And I will be in the most amount of pain so that you don’t have to suffer as I do. With that in mind, let’s get started with one of the most 90’s movies in existence, She’s All That.
This was a movie that was on my list for Cheesy Romance Month last February, but it barely missed the cut after Just Go With It made me want to throw myself out of a window. After that, I just couldn’t handle another crappy romance. I decided to have a look at it again for the start of this Cheesy Romance Month with the hopes that maybe it wasn’t as bad as the first time I had to sit through it… Nope… Nope it is still terrible. Good to know when a movie meets my expectations for better or for worse. Let it be known going into this review that this is without a doubt one of the worst romantic comedies that has ever been made. Horrible acting, horrible writing, and a horrible premise are just a few things that I could say about this festering pile of garbage. So… My opinion isn’t very high.

During 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. The 2000’s was an interesting time to say the least. After the cynicism of the 90’s comes the feeling of ‘who gives a shit?’ People stopped giving a shit so hard that they just threw up their hands, took their ball, went home, and waited for 2010’s to come around and see what it had in store for us. This was the time when Scary Movie, Disaster Movie, and really anything that has the word ‘Movie’ attached to it were born. This was also the time that the screen was graced with Freddie Got Fingered, From Justin to Kelly, The Wicker Man remake, and anything by Uwe Boll. 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.

So it is February… That barren wasteland of a month when winter is shitting out its last ‘screw you and all the love ones you hold dear’ snow storms while we wait anxiously for spring to come and thaw us out of our ice encased tombs. So of course this ‘beautiful’ time of the year is the perfect time to have the holiday in which we celebrate our undying love for each other in a whirlwind of consumerism and cheesy romance. February is often considered the month of love thanks to that one special holiday smack dab in the middle of it, Valentines Day. It is a day when those in committed relationships shower each other with gifts of chocolate, goofy stuffed animals, and going out on dates. Meanwhile the singles sit at home pretending the day does not exist as the voice in the back of our head screams at us, questioning if we will ever find that certain special someone.
