Love on Screen

Love on Screen was a post-valentine event held by a local retail establishment last weekend.

This was a free outdoor showing of three romantic comedies, each one from the last three decades. All you need to do was bring a blanket (optional) and find a spot and you’re all set.

80’s – Some Kind of Wonderfulskw
Soundtracks of these 80’s films alone will get anyone goosebumps and warm-fuzzy butterflies of nostalgia. Add to this the classic best-friends-who-fall-for-each-other act and you get the perfect chick flick!

Hugh Grant. Need I say more? (For me, he’s the perfect epitome of what a male celebrity is. The smile. The hair. The accent. Ugh.)
Anyway, make this handsome chap play a boy-next-door falling in love with a famous celebrity (that is Julia Roberts) that delivers him a catchy cheesy line makes it really all “Surreal… but nice!”.

Balancing all the mushy-ness is the hilarious romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. This is where comedy outweighs the romantic part more. Hilarious but tragic and gets you to say “aaaw” all at the time.

I consider these three films classics of their own time when it comes to the romantic comedy genre. And I am really happy and proud of the establishment that thought of this.

Roses were handed out.
Proposals were made.
Hearts were warmed.

Bonifacio High Street provided a venue to spread love,
and I hope that this becomes a tradition every year.
Kudos! 🙂
