Romantic comedies from the 1990s were full of lessons. Here's what they taught us about love.
In case you never noticed, romantic comedies from the '90s are chock-full of love lessons. It was a decade of blissfully enlightening cinema. We don't really care if these flicks are considered predictable and cliché; if you watch closely, you'll see they are brimming with life-applicable wisdom. Find out what we're talking about.
A new film can teach you a thing or two about online, long-distance dating.
Before you take your budding Facebook romance with your coworker's brother's friend from grade school to the next level, YourTango strongly, strongly recommends you watch the new documentary release Catfish—or at least read the following.
New release "Easy A" reminds us why we wish John Hughes directed our love life.
Although the movie didn't exactly offer anything we haven't seen before—anonymous high school teenager survives a bad rumor and finds love with her crush—it did offer me something to think about it and that is this: for the bad rap romantic comedies have, women still want a John Hughes love story.
Per Eat, Pray, Love, is the divorcee the happiest person around?
The happy divorce film is here to (maybe) stay. As you likely know, Julia Roberts has brought smash hit Eat, Pray, Love to the big screen. But is it just another in a long line of films lionizing the divorcee and glossing over the dirty parts of splitting?
Inception has us wondering--what does it really mean to dream about an ex?
We admit that Inception really made us use our thinking caps. We left the theater with a number of burning questions: What is real, how is Joseph Gordon-Levitt so gosh darn adorable, and most importantly... what does it mean when you dream about an ex?
We talk about what makes a man a man with "Charlie St. Cloud" actress Amanda Crew.
Forget Zac Efron, we've got a crush on Canadian import Amanda Crew, the 24-year-old actress who plays the title character's love interest in the new movie Charlie St. Cloud. (In theaters July 30th, see trailer below.) CelebLove recently spent a few minutes gabbing on the phone with Crew (About what? Oh, you know, men, men, and, OK, a bit about sailing) and came away thinking Hey, we like this girl!
Sometimes, it pays to be childlike in a relationship.
When we first saw the theatrical trailer for producer Chris Meledandri's newest film Despicable Me, we'll admit, we rolled our eyes as these odd overall-wearing, yellow pellets stuttered over the film's title, then emitted sounds reminiscent of a clown doll and Spongebob Squarepants. Still, our curiosity got the best of us, and that was a good thing, indeed. And we never would've guessed that we might learn something while watching the film either. As we watched the adorable Agnes, voiced by Elsie Fisher, warm Gru's evil heart and get her way with him, it occurred to us that at times, it pays to be childlike, especially in a relationship. (Note, we didn't say childish.) Read on to see what we mean.
Sex and the City 2 is ridiculously over-the-top, but what about its presentation of marriage?
If there's one thing we learned from the Sex and the City 2 movie, it's that we're in the wrong income bracket. If there's a second thing we learned, it's that we're not trying hard enough. (Seriously; do we need to start wearing stilettos around our condo in order to keep the fires burning? Some of us have just been wearing bunny slippers.) If there's a third lesson to be had, it's that when it comes to marriage, you can make your own rules.
Summer sun too hot for you? Stay cool with one of these summer date movies.
Now that summer's coming, we can say goodbye to coats, colds, hay fever, and best of all, spring's notoriously bad movies. Iron Man 2 came out a couple of weeks ago, marking the beginning of summer's crop of blockbusters. As much as we all love our outdoor summer dates, we've got to admit that it's nice snuggling up inside a darkened, air-conditioned theater when the humidity gets too hot to handle. Here are our summer movie picks for 2010
Star Wars is more than just action and eye candy, the movie also taught us a few good love lessons.
Here at YourTango, there are certain holidays we like to celebrate the heck out of: Valentine's Day; Mother's Day; World Nutella Day. Today is Star Wars Day, and we're super excited to have a legitimate outlet for our general geekery. And because we also tend to have love on the brain, we decided to look at one of our favorite movie franchises through heart-shaped lenses, and share with you what Star Wars taught us about love.
