Romantic Movies/movies recommendations


Could anyone recommend a movie to me where the hero & heroine hated each other at first then hate turn to love ?

There are more romantic movies that begin with the hero and heroine hating each other or with one of them hating the other than there are that begin with them liking each other!  There's even a whole category of "comedies of remarriage," about divorced couples who hate each other -- or think they do -- and then fall in love again.  Those include "The Philadelphia Story" and the remake "High Society," and "His Girl Friday."  Other movies that begin with the couple not liking each other are "When Harry Met Sally," "You've Got Mail," and two earlier versions of the same story, "In the Good Old Summertime," and "The Shop Around the Corner," "The Proposal," "10 Things I Hate About You," and even the original "Star Wars!"

Hope that helps.

Movies, especially classic movies, current movies, family movies, and movies for children.


I am the movie critic for Beliefnet and radio stations across the country. I have written about movies for USA Today, Parents, Family Fun, Child, Slate, and Daughters, and am the weekly movie critic for twenty radio stations across the US and in Canada and write weekly parental advisories and some movie reviews for the Chicago Sun-Times and the Kansas City Star. I have appeared on Fox Morning News, the ABC Evening News, CBS This Morning, and NPR, and been profiled in the NY Times, Washingtonian, Chicago Magazine, and the Chicago Tribune. My book, The Movie Mom's Guide to Family Movies, was published by Avon in April 1999 and is now in its second edition. I can answer questions about movies for special interests, especially family concerns, handling questions from kids like "What do I do when he says everyone else has seen it?" to "My daughter got nightmares from a movie --how can I help her?" or "Why does my child want to see the DVD over and over?" to "What's the deal with Pokemon?" I am pretty good with trivia questions about movies, too, not as good with made-for-TV movies or miniseries.
