Any Nancy Meyers film - something's gotta give, it's complicated, the holiday...

The Holiday if you want Christmassy?

Damn - you spoiled my fun by saying not Love Actually. I think this year takes the prize for the most anti-Love Actually threads ever.

It's a Wonderful Life.

Only You with Robert Downey Jnr. Fluffy hokum at it's best

Last Christmas or About Time. Both have made me cry this week but are ultimately feel good movies and very easy to watch.

I rather enjoyed The Prom. Tosh, and its message that actually it’s fine to be gay is not exactly groundbreaking in 2020, but great songs and Meryl is always value.

I enjoyed Isn’t It Romantic as well: not going to win any Oscars but it cheered me up.

Or Pitch Perfect?

Last Christmas

Whattimeisdinner Sat 19-Dec-20 15:34:14

I haven't seen 'Last Christmas'!
I haven't seen Meet me in St Louis, Holiday Affair or Only you either!
I will work my way through them all!

About Time gives me the creeps.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a fantastic film... but I wouldn't put it in the romantic category.
