Romantic Comedies Guys Like

(June 2012)
Ever been on a date where you're forced to watch a horribly cheesy romantic comedy? Well, here are some films that we hope you both will enjoy.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
Directed By:
Michel Gondry
Starring:
Jim Carrey , Kate Winslet , Tom Wilkinson

Jim Carrey stars as Joel Barish, a man who is informed that his ex-girlfriend Clementine has had her memories of their relationship erased from her brain via an experimental procedure performed by Dr. Mierzwiak. Not to be outdone, Joel decides to have the same procedure done to himself.

Annie Hall (1977)
Directed By:
Woody Allen
Starring:
Woody Allen , Diane Keaton , Tony Roberts

Jewish comedy writer Alvy Singer ponders the modern quest for love and his past romance with tightly-wound WASP singer Annie Hall. Within these gleeful formal experiments and sight gags, Allen and co-writer Marshall Brickman skewered 1970s solipsism, reversing the happy marriage of opposites found in classic screwball comedies.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010)
Directed By:
Edgar Wright
Starring:
Michael Cera , Mary Elizabeth Winstead , Kieran Culkin

Twenty-two-year-old Scott Pilgrim may not have a job, but rocking the bass for his band, Sex Bob-omb, is a tough job unto itself. When Scott locks eyes with Ramona Flowers, he knows she's the girl he wants to grow old with. But Ramona has some serious baggage; her supercharged exes rue the thought of her being with another man, and they'll crush any guy who gives her a second glance.

Bringing Up Baby (1938)
Directed By:
Howard Hawks
Starring:
Katharine Hepburn , Cary Grant , Charlie Ruggles

Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant star in this inspired comedy about a madcap heiress with a pet leopard who meets an absent-minded paleontologist and unwittingly makes a fiasco of both their lives. Director Howard Hawks delivers a funny, fast-paced, and offbeat story, enlivened by animated performances from the two leads, in what has become a definitive screwball comedy.

Jason Segel , Kristen Bell , Mila Kunis

In desperate need of a vacation after being unceremoniously dumped by his TV-star girlfriend, a man travels to a lavish Hawaiian resort to nurse his wounds and forget his heartache, only to discover that his ex and her handsome new boyfriend are currently staying at the exact same island hot spot.

Along the way, they find themselves venturing into Elysium, a small, free-spirited community where money has no value, clothes are strictly optional, and everyone works together to make life more meaningful. Will they remain in Elysium, or will the many temptations of the modern world ultimately prove too attractive to resist?
