The lead up to Valentine's Day meant that every amazing girly romantic comedy was on TV at least once. From February 1st until February 14th, I watched Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock fall in love in The Proposal TWICE; saw Mandy Moore marry bad boy Shane West in A Walk to Remember once; and I was reminded of how much Joaquin Phoenix's face bothers me in Walk The Line for the 45 minutes I could stand to have it on.
I don't know what it is about romantic comedies that make them tug at the ol' heartstrings so much.
I'm not much of a crier in real life. In fact, I'm pretty stoic for a woman, I think. My boyfriend tears up at least twice as often as I do. But there's something about two people overcoming obstacles to ultimately fall in love that just gets to me.
Anyway, Treetopia put together a compilation of the sappiest proposal scenes from a handful of my favorite Rom Coms and I watched it 5 times in a row. Even just tuning in for a few short snippets of each of these films was enough to get me a little teary.
Anyway, the 6 movies featured in this mash up are:
Walk the Line
A Walk to Remember
The Five Year Engagement
