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.

Me, too.  I can remember when a half gallon of Blue Bell was $2.99, or on sale for 3-for-$5.  That's at least a dollar less than what they're getting for a pint now.  If my math is right, there are four pints in a half gallon.  Shouldn't a pint be about $2.25?  Of course not.  That would make too much sense, and, apparently, way too little cents.

What, that's not what shocked you?  Must be the Halloween candy.  The best bargain in town this week has to be leftover Halloween candy.  One of those giant gut-buster bags of bite-sized morsels such as BabyRuths, Whoppers, KitKats and Butterfingers, my personal favorite, are marked down to half-price now.  That means only 25 or 30 bucks a bag.
