I’m a big fan of romantic comedies and cozy mysteries. By extension, I am a fan of the “meet cute”.
“Meet cute” is simply the term used to describe when two characters meet in a charming/cute way, and then those characters end up in a romantic relationship
I was originally going to defend the concept of “meet cute”, but I decided that this is a device that some people are just not going to like, or that some people are going to think is silly. SO I concede that some people like it, and others are just never going to justify this in books and movies. And I really don’t care what others thing, because….
I love romantic comedies.
I love cozy mysteries where characters fall in love.
I love the meet cute.
Sorry, not sorry.
What are my favorite “meet cute” films?
- Notting Hill (OK- meeting Hugh Grant by chance is sort of a dream)
- Before Sunrise
- When Harry Met Sally
- Bridget Jones’ Baby (though is it a meet cute if you don’t end up with the guy?)
- Pretty Woman (sorry- I’m counting it)
- It Happened One Night
- Bringing Up Baby
- You’ve Got Mail
- The Big Sick
- Four Weddings and a Funeral (ok- not really the best..but Hugh Grant)
Do you have any favorite meet cutes? Or do you have any meet cutes that you just can’t stand?
