The Great Rom-Com Divide

October 8, 2009 by in category Archives

One of the fun things about having a 13-year-old daughter is having someone to watch romantic comedy movies with when my regular date (my darling hubby) is away or working or whatever. My daughter and I have some shared favorites: Two Weeks Notice, Just Like Heaven, The Proposal. We have some shared non-favorites: While You Were Sleeping, Green Card.
After that, it starts to get tricky. I have a couple of favorites that just don’t appeal to my daughter: Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail. And vice versa—my daughter loved Confessions of a Shopaholic and 27 Dresses, both of which left me cold.

“You like the oldies, I like the goodies,” she explained to me when I started a conversation about our taste in movies. Oh, yeah? Then how does she explain that I loved Lars and the Real Girl and she didn’t? Huh? Huh? (you can tell I’m a little miffed about the “oldies” comment).

Since I’m working on a young adult novel at the moment, I’m kind of interested in getting my head around the difference in movie tastes between generations. So tell me, what are your favorite rom coms, and how do your choices differ from your daughter’s—or your mother’s?!
