Instead of watching the New York teams fail miserably, I watched this fantastic romantic comedy courtesy of Mr. Steve Martin. If you haven’t seen it lately, you really should.
Sweet, funny, intelligent, it has a sunny small town California setting without meanness but with excellent physical comedy. It’s magical and hopeful and the conceit, based on Cyrano De Bergerac, makes you believe that they could fall in love so quickly. I was trying to make a list of romantic comedies that don’t leave that cruddy manipulated diet coke aftertaste and all I have is this, Groundhog Day, and It Happened One Night. What do you suggest?
