I recently read an article in Frankie about good romantic/comedy films that aren't rubbish.. and each of their choices was already one of my favourites! So I thought I'd list them along with some others I'd recommend if you like romantic films that are actually good without being cheesy...
1 Say Anything
John Cusack was the king in the 80s! Definitely one to watch if you've not seen it yet.
A classic, of course. I love how the object of her affections is a little bit kooky and weird.
3 Before Sunrise
Julie Delpy is just lovely. Really makes me want to go inter-railing around Europe!
[Edit: I also wanted to add 2 Days in Paris which I really liked too! Stars Delpy & Adam Goldberg and it's pretty funny)
4. In Search of a Midnight Kiss
Don't let the title of this put you off - I saw this by chance at a free screening and was really impressed. A bit like Before Sunrise but shot in LA on a tiny budget - Scoot McNairy's my new favourite actor. Who hasn't been in anything good since..
5. Annie Hall
One of Woody's finest!
...Any I missed?
