Monday Movie Meme – It’s all about love

Feature Presentation…

…we thought that instead we’d focus on the emotion of love, which is what drives a marriage after all. But most of us don’t get to experience the type of love and romance that is portrayed in the movies. If you could live any movie’s love story, which one would it be?

Before I give my answer I would like to wish the hosts of this wonderful meme, the Bumbles (Andy and Molly) a wonderfully romantic anniversary!

This is a tough one, to choose only ONE love story to live?  Let me list the parts of four that I would love to take part in.  Let’s start with the most cheesy movie on my list – Made in Heaven with Timothy Hutton and Kelly McGillis.  They were a couple who met in Heaven and then one had to leave.  Would the other leave Heaven, of all places, to follow her?  Of course!  That’s commitment.  Here’s the trailer of the film.  You may want some wine with the cheese.

And this moves right into my next one, Serendipity, with John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale.  It’s all about listening to your heart and keeping your eyes open to the clues of the universe.  And never letting yourself settle for second best. 

And next I need a dose of reality with When Harry Met Sally starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal.  As much of a romantic as I am I very much hate being put on a pedestal.  I want my guy to see me as I really am and love me anyway.  And he should be my best friend.

Okay, enough reality, I also want devotion, so my last pick would be The Princess Bride with Cary Elwes and Robin Wright.  This man endured death for her and his answer to her requests or desires?  “As you wish.”  Sigh.

What do you think?  Am I asking too much of my husband?  What would your movie be?
