Crazy Stupid Love (2011)

IMDb  – 7.4

Genre – Romance | Drama | Comedy

The American dream is being lived by Cal Weaver (Steve Carell). He has an excellent job, a lovely home, wonderful kids, and a stunning wife named Emily (Julianne Moore). Nevertheless, when Cal finds out that Emily has been unfaithful and wants a divorce, his seemingly ideal existence begins to fall apart. Cal, who is over 40 and recently single, is lost in the erratic world of dating. Cal is taken under the wing by self-styled player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling), who shows him the ropes on how to score with the ladies.

This is a movie that not only portrays the struggle of people whose life fell apart at once but only gives the audience time to cheer and get mixed into the movie completely. This is one of the best works of Steve Carell.

One day, Noah takes Allie to a historic home he’s always wanted to buy and restore. They try to make out, but their friend interrupts them. Allie’s parents move to New York with her despite their disapproval of their relationship because Noah is from a different social class.

Eurovision Song Contest

IMDb – 6.5

Genre – Romance | Musical

I didn’t go into Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga expecting it to be one of the most moving and swoon-worthy films of the year, but Rachel McAdams is a force to be reckoned with. The goofy-yet-poignant Netflix Original comedy, in which the Mean Girls and Game Night star co-stars with Will Ferrell as a pair of Icelandic singers with dreams of winning the Eurovision Song Contest, further establishes her status as one of the most underappreciated comedic actors of her generation. Although there are times when it’s laugh-out-loud humorous, the biggest surprises are the incredibly catchy original songs and the unexpected sensitivity that may leave you with a tear in your eye and warmth in your heart in between the chuckles.

Bridget Jones’s Diary

IMDb  – 6.8

Genre –  Comedy | Drama | Romance

Renée Zellweger plays Bridget Jones, a typical woman battling her age, weight, career, lack of a man, and numerous flaws. Bridget resolves to take charge of her life as part of her New Year’s resolution, and she begins by maintaining a diary in which she will always be completely honest. When her endearing but dishonest boss shows interest in the eccentric Miss Jones, the fireworks start. Bridget’s group of slightly odd friends and a disgruntled acquaintance, whom Bridget can’t help but run into and find quietly attractive, are added to the mix.

A Whisker Away

Mirai looking at the cat mask

IMDb  – 6.7

Genre  – Animation | Fantasy | Romance | Drama

A strange second-year junior high girl named Miyo Sasaki develops feelings for her classmate Kento Hinode. Muge makes daily attempts to get Kento to notice her but in vain. Muge nevertheless keeps after Kento despite possessing a secret she can’t reveal to anyone. Muge finds a magic mask that she can use to change into a cat, but if she uses it often, there’s a chance she’ll never return to being human.

Even this absurd concept, by directors Junichi Sato and Tomotaka Shibayama’s A Whisker Away, produces beauty and a tender romance. The anime is skilfully guided through some emotional loops by Mari Okada’s writing, which also takes it through some crinkly toy tunnels. Ultimately, the ludicrous premise of the anime—which features a group of angry, depressed middle schoolers—is grounded in emotional honesty. A little extra-terrestrial magic from Miyazaki’s canon (a fat cat that deals faces and an entire unseen cat world) blends well with some open explorations of the protagonists’ mental health problems (not quite as deeply and darkly as Neon Genesis Evangelion, but with a similarly stylish flair).

Love and Gelato (2022)

IMDb  – 5.1

Genre – Romance | Comedy | Drama

Although Lina is spending the summer in Tuscany, she is not in the mood for the country’s well-known weather and picturesque surroundings. She’s only there because her mother wanted her to see her father before she passed away. What kind of father, though, disappears for sixteen years? Lina only wants to return home. She is then given a journal that her mother had written in while she was living in Italy. Suddenly, Lina is finding a magical world full of art, hidden bakeries, and undiscovered relationships. A world that motivates her to follow in her mother’s footsteps and uncover a mystery that has been kept for far too long, together with the attractive Ren. It’s a secret that will change everything she knew about her mother, her father, and even herself.

Always Be My maybe

IMDb  – 6.8

Genre – Comedy | Romance

Childhood friends Sasha and Marcus have a falling out and don’t speak for 15 years. But when Sasha, now a celebrity chef in Los Angeles, returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant, she runs into her old pal–a happily-complacent musician still living at home and working for his dad. Though the two are reluctant to reconnect, they soon find the old sparks–and maybe some new ones?

The actors portray childhood pals who drift apart following a disastrous teen relationship. After his mother’s sad death, Marcus continues to live at home and work for his father’s blue-collar company while Wong’s Sasha rises to fame as a chef. Sure, they may all learn from one another, but Always Be My Maybe also explores the difficulties that arise when two people with separate lives decide to be together and try to figure out how to make it work. Importantly, part of it is Marcus and Sasha supporting one another in their professional endeavors rather than making compromises and putting aside their interests in order to be together.
