When did you comfortably lie back in bed, put on your pajamas, make popcorn, and enjoy a good romantic comedy?
It seems like a lot of time has passed since the real romantic comedies we enjoyed and which we were able to watch over and over again and never get bored. But the latest news from Hollywood is promising.
The latest in a series of news to arrive is the return to the big door of Meg Ryan. The star of romantic comedies such as “When Harry Met Sally”, “Sleepless in Seattle” and “You’ve Got Mail”, the unique Meg Ryan will direct and play in the movie “What Happens Later” side by side with David Duchovny.
“What Happens Later” follows former lovers Will (Ryan) and Bill (Duchovny) who meet a decade after the breakup at the airport, both in transit, on a snowy night that has delayed all flights. We don’t know the exact reason why we haven’t watched Meg Ryan for so long in what she knows best, but in any case, the fans can’t wait for this movie, and the script obviously promises good fun.
For more than 20 years, we have not seen Julia Roberts in romantic comedies, a genre that has made her famous and without which her career would not exist, at least not as we know it today. “Here’s the thing: if I thought something was good enough, I’d film it,” the queen of romantic comedies said in an interview with the New York Times.
Then she added: “People sometimes misinterpret that because of the time that has passed since I made a romantic comedy, I no longer want to make such films. If I got a script that would be on the level of the movie “Notting Hill” or “My Best Friend’s Wedding” – I would accept it. But they did not exist until the latest romantic comedy “Ticket to Paradise”, which will have its premiere this fall” – said the actress.
In the latest comedy, Roberts plays along with Hollywood seducer George Clooney. They play a divorced couple traveling to Bali to prevent their daughter from getting married.
While we are waiting for the new films of Julia Roberts and Meg Ryan, their colleague Sandra Bullock was the first to “break the ice” after the crisis years for a romantic comedy. She filmed the hilarious comedy “The Lost City” with Channing Tatum and Daniel Radcliffe.
In this film, Sandra Bullock plays Loretta, a love novelist who unexpectedly ends up in the jungle with her male cover model as a result of a failed kidnapping attempt. Brad Pitt appears as the icing on the cake in this film, and the line in which Bullock asks Pitt: “Why are you so hot”, and Brad Pitt answers: “My dad read the weather forecast” – we can already include it in our favorite replicas from romantic comedies.
All we have to do is prepare popcorn and wait for the latest films of Julia Roberts, and Meg Ryan, and we hope that they won’t take such breaks anymore, and we welcome the good old romantic comedies.
