One of my top picks for this year is the animated movie “Gnomeo and Juliet” which follows the timeless story of Romeo and Juliet, but this time, their gardens are the ones at war which provides the comical side of this movie. Who would ever think that the rivalry of the Montagues and the Capulets would extend to their garden ornaments?
Another good movie is “No Strings Attached” where Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher team up to show the hilarious consequences and predicament of having a relationship with no strings attached. It is quite interesting to see if this kind of relationship can indeed survive where both parties are free to do whatever they want, have sex without obligations and responsibilities, but then, how can they resist falling in love with one another?
How about “Crazy, Stupid, Love” where the comedy antics of Steve Carell is again displayed, this time opening his eyes to a whole new world of flirtation and women, especially since is perfect life has now slowly been shattered to pieces following the discovery of his wife’s infidelity. This movie shows that indeed, love is in the air and it is for everyone and would qualify as a feel good movie.
“Just Go With It” is another movie worth looking into, which has a powerful all-star cast composed of Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. This movie basically shows the comical side of using a white lie to cover up something, until things get out of hand. The story shows what happens when a relationship is founded on pure lies.
Finally, we have “Friends with Benefits” where Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis show to us the riotous effects of deciding to inject a little sex in a romantic relationship. Here is one way of telling the people not always to believe what they see in the movies because it is not all that simple as it seems.
