Another Nora Ephron classic co-written and directed by her. The story follows a widower named Sam Tom Hanks who calls into a radio show to discuss his heartbreak and attracts the attention of countless female listeners. We've all been Bridget Jones at one point in our life: single, fretting over men, and utterly disgusted by the thought of working out. After meeting on a train in Europe, Jesse and Celine spend all night walking and talking in Vienna.
They part ways at the end of the movie, but fear not — their story continues in the sequels Before Sunrise and Before Midnight. There have been countless movie adaptations of Shakespeare over the years, but this classic remains the platonic ideal of Shakespeare adaptations. Like Obvious Child , Knocked Up tells the story of a woman who finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand, only in this one, she decides to keep the baby.
Jane Austen, author of Emma on which the movie is based , was the original rom-com queen. In this underrated gem, Oliver Ashton Kutcher and Emily Amanda Peet go from friends with occasional benefits to just friends to lovers over the course of several years. Their solution? Visit friends and family all over the country to see what might suit their new family. A lot of Jennifer Aniston movies get a bad rap, but this one is a gift.
Jen plays Polly, a long-lost middle-school classmate of Reuben Ben Stiller , a buttoned-up insurance underwriter.
She wanted it to be him! She wanted it to be him so badly! A dream team that actually might have a shot at gold at the Winter Olympics.
No, really. The king of rom-coms Garry Marshall directed real-life lovebirds Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell in this sweet movie about an obnoxious heiress who falls off her yacht hence the title and quite literally into the arms of the local carpenter Russell while suffering from a bad case of amnesia.
Watching Kirstie Alley and John Travolta figure out how to take care of said baby in a sweet, sweet film from Amy Heckerling in her pre- Clueless days.
If you break up with someone, do not continue to live with them, no matter what, otherwise you will end up like this movie, basically. Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn play these lovers-turned-roommates, and things go from bad to worse.
Bill Hader plays the guy Amy seriously falls for, even though her instincts tell her otherwise. Would you ever buy a magazine called Composure? This was a fun and quick read. Mind you it was a short story but I would probably read a whole book about this character.
It was a bit different from what I usually read now. I read a lot of stories lot this in high school however and I really enjoyed them.

This was a very light read and I enjoyed the high school drama in this short story. I also liked the fact that Sarah wrote a complete story in short story form, there is nothing I hate more than a short story that leaves you hanging and doesn't even tell a complete story at all. This was not the case with this one and I really like the style of writing in this short story as well.
I would recommend this short story and I will definitely be checking out some of Sarah's others work. Ba n d Romance is a page novelette about a girl who realizes too late that she's sharing her supposed boyfriend with other girls. She's supposed to go up next with her band mate to sing.
She's in school and she's hiding from the other girlfriend while at the same time ignoring the supposed boyfriend's calls. The novelette was cute, the female protagonist was literally running all over the school from the boyfriend and girlfriend and it was funny. The ending was satisfying for the boyfriend, but for our female protagonist? She realizes who deserves her love. However, its only 30 pages, and to find closure in such a short novel, sudden realizations need to happen right?
