You’ve Got Mail
Can you get more 90s than Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan? I have to admit, I don’t care for romantic comedies, except for this one. We have the aww-shucks charm of Hanks combined with Meg Ryan’s confident every-girl attitude. An added bit of irony here is that many of the big book stores from the 90s ceased to exist while tiny boutique shops thrive!

A lot of 90s comedies do not hold up. Fortunately, Adam Sandler’s classics do. Many people debate Billy Madison vs. Happy Gilmore. I personally like Happy Gilmore, mainly because this Sandler character is easier to like.

Julia Roberts and Richard Gere reunite for a bit of a lighter and more absurd romantic comedy. When both actors were at the pinnacle of their power, I remember this movie getting colossal buzz. It still makes you wonder why Richard Gere isn’t a leading man in more movies.
As Good As It Gets
Jack Nicholson turns in the performance of a lifetime with this movie. Nicholson, with his signature charisma and wisecracks, becomes one of the most despicably hilarious men in the history of rom-com.
I was watching As Good As It Gets last night and shorty asked Jack Nicholson’s character how does he write women so well.

And As Good As It Gets barely qualifies as a romantic comedy. It is a story about empathy, self-acceptance, and being nice when it counts.
Forget all the “Worst of” Lists you’ve seen this movie on. Yes, Hudson Hawk was a massive flop, and critics panned it. But if you are a fan of Bruce Willis, this is a must-watch. Hudson Hawk stands out as a mix of Dick Tracy and Die Hard. It is funny and whacky, and there’s a bit of random singing.
Forget the dumb critics and make some time for Hudson Hawk.
Heard about Bruce Willis’ medical condition…
Ugh. Think I need to watch “Hudson Hawk” tonight, then.
One of the most underrated comedies ever.

The Bruce Willis news is incredibly sad. At his best, he was one of our most magnetic Movie Stars, turning in excellent work in Die Hard, Pulp Fiction, The Last Boy Scout, Moonrise Kingdom, Looper, The Fifth Element, Unbreakable, and the criminally underrated Hudson Hawk: pic.twitter.com/5EXq9DwNYK

My first favorite actor. Die Hard was the first real big adult movie I was allowed to see. Loved it, wanted more immediately. Also, Hudson Hawk is an underrated comedy gem. https://t.co/QMB6voLZSH
