5 romantic comedies to watch this holiday

By Josephine Lee–

“Sweet Home Alabama”
“Why you wanna marry me for anyway?” “So I can kiss you any time I want.”
In this movie, Reese Witherspoon goes home to her southern roots – and to Josh Lucas, her soon to be ex-husband, so she can marry her new fiancé, Patrick Dempsey. Witherspoon spends the rest of the movie torn between the men of her past and her present.

“How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days”
Starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConauoghey, this movie is an absolute classic. Two people set out with completely opposite objectives for a relationship and end up with more than they bargained for. I’m sure I could lose a guy in ten days without breaking a sweat, but Kate Hudson makes it her mission in this movie.

“50 First Dates”

Adam Sandler and his penguin steal my heart in this movie. If only getting in a car accident that left me with amnesia would cause some guy in Hawaii to fall in love with me. This movie never gets old, and Sandler always gets me laughing.

“The Proposal”
Two of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock, come together in this romantic comedy involving a deportation scandal.
Throw in all-time favorite Betty White, and this movie is a hilarious hit. I only wish I could find an assistant who would marry me and bring me to Alaska for a fake wedding because I needed a favor.

“13 Going on 30”
Jennifer Garner skips through her awkward middle and high school years to become athe cool, confident and successful magazine editor.
After deciding that being wasn’t worth losing her true love, Garner sacrifices her popularity and shows that you don’t have to be popular to get what you want.
