The Best Things About Rom Coms

Scatter Seeds Of Kindness

If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

We all were completely in love with rom coms. And unfortunately, they just don’t make them like they used to. With rom-coms pretty much dead, it’s the perfect time to pay a tribute to the great romantic comedies of the late ’90s.  The ’90s were the golden time for romantic comedies, and here’s why.

Well it began in 1990 with Pretty Woman. Julia Roberts was at the peak of her fame. Together with a perfect fairy tale plot and the most quotable lines, this movie had everything and more.  Julia Roberts only continued from there, with Runaway Bride, Something to Talk About, I Love Trouble and My Best Friend’s Wedding.  She was basically the queen of rom-com.

Then there was the star-crossed bitter enemies, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, who were also the dream team. In Sleepless in Seattle, we’re not sure if they’ve got chemistry, but we still fell head over heals for them. And then in You’ve Got Mail,  we’re proven that the chemistry is in fact there, making them the epitome of the romantic comedy couple.

But then came Clueless, which was basically the rom-com of the century. The flick was based on a Jane Austen novel. It had more quotable lines than we can count and we all gained a new found crush on Paul Rudd. In 1995, at the same time as the release of Clueless, we were also graced with While You Were Sleeping, with the talented and beautiful Sandra Bullock.
