If you are looking for the perfect romantic comedy to watch on Valentine's Day, or on any romantic date with your girlfriend, I recommend the movie French Kiss with Meg Ryan, Kevin Kline.
This is my favorite movie to watch to laugh, lift my spirits, or just relax. French Kiss is a lighthearted comedy, silly enough to laugh, and yet heartwarming enough to enjoy. The characters are offbeat and funny, with poignant moments. And the actors are excellent in their roles.
There are also some very good performances by the minor characters including Timothy Hutton playing the boyfriend, Jean Reno who plays the policeman, Francois Cluzet playing Bob, and Laurent Spielvogel playing the snooty hotel concierge.
I realized the other day that even though I own French Kiss, I still have it in VHS, which is a real pain for us to play now, because we have to switch all of our cords and equipment around. So this Valentine's Day for a present to myself, I will buy French Kiss in DVD, since we have yet to buy a Blu-ray player.
