Romantic Comedies of the 1990s and 2000s

From Julia Roberts’ hooker with the heart of golden comic timing in “Pretty Woman” (1990) to Alec Baldwin getting caught with his pants down trying to woo ex-wife Meryl Streep back from Steve Martin in “It’s Complicated” (2009), we’ll explore the cream of the romantic-comedy crop in the 1990s and the ‘00s.

Lighthearted and fun, this presentation utilizing PowerPoint images and film clips and lasting a little over an hour will also revive the movie magic of gems like “L. A. Story,” “Notting Hill,” “The Proposal” and many more.

I liked It's Complicated. I think Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin both do comedy really well.

It's a different way to see Alec, after being used to seeing him in thrillers, playing thieves or other criminals. However I think he's as believable in the more humorous roles as he is in intense, morbid pieces.

I still haven't watched The Proposal and would like to. I'll probably like it, since I like most of Sandra Bullock's movies. These are fun to watch with any type of company.

Marion or The Duke: It's all John Wayne

Stagecoach300r
John Wayne about to hitch a ride to fame as The Ringo Kid in "Stagecoach" (1939).

So what's your favorite Marion Robert Morrison movie?

We're talking the late, great "everyman" movie star John Wayne, of course.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance starring The Duke, Jimmy Stewart, Vera Miles and Lee Marvin as the title character is my favorite, Pilgrim.   That heartfelt-yet-hard hitting Western of love, unrequited and otherwise, giant pan-fried steaks and Marvin as quite possibly one of the Top 5 big screen baddies of all time, only edges out True Grit by an eyepatch or two.
