"Love, Rosie" The Queen Of Romantic Comedies

You Need To Make 'Love, Rosie' The Next Movie You Watch On A Wine Date

Everything about this movie just seems better after having a bottle of wine for yourself.

Romantic comedies aren't really my cup of tea. Most of them are not original, and they always follow some sort of plot structure that hasn't really changed over many years: boy meets girl; boy and girl fall in love; boy and girl go through so many difficulties that make it hard for them to be together. Despite everything, in the end, the power of love is unstoppable.

Many of these movies manage to give us false expectations of what "true love" might actually mean. We begin to crave this idealistic stories meant to be enjoyed by the public eye. These movies deceive us with the ideality that love can conquer it all–every obstacle that it is thrown our way.

I've learned to avoid many of those movies. I've never seen Breakfast at Tiffany's or Fifty First Dates or Ten Things I Hate About You or 500 Days of Summer. My eyes have never even grazed a scene from any of these movies. However, there is one movie that I could watch every single day of my life.

Love, Rosie is your typical cliched romantic comedy. Rosie and Alex met at a young age, and they became best friends. They spend most of their childhood together. It was Alex and Rosie all the time, and nobody could change that. However, as one grows, life begins to throw many obstacles at you (am I right???), and our characters are separated from each other. Alex moved to Boston to study to become a doctor, while Rosie stayed in Ireland to raise her baby. Alex, nor Rosie, however, had the balls to tell each other how they truly felt.

There's something about this movie that has always made me love it from the moment I watched the trailer a couple years ago. For their promos, movie posters portrayed condoms, which I thought was a really ingenious movement. (Watch the movie, and you'll understand.)

But the movie isn't set to decide the fate of these starstruck lovers in a span of a couple months. We follow them from years. We meet them during high school, and we end many years later when Rosie finally manages to accomplish her dream. And I believe that's what I love most about the movie. Love, Rosie doesn't entirely focus on the romance plot.

Love, Rosie follows the life of Rosie, a girl who had so many dreams but was stopped the moment she got pregnant at the age of 18. This didn't stop her, though. She managed to still accomplish her dreams. Rosie became unstoppable. She never let anything keep her back. She strived throughout the entire movie, deciding what was better for her. The movie also, somewhat, follows the life of Alex, who's at Boston studying to become a doctor.

The movie shows that love isn't just always the first person that you manage to meet at a bar. This movie shows that, no matter what, the true person in your life is one day going to show up in your life.

That lesson is one I've come to fully grasp these years. Love is deceitful. Love is beautiful. Love can be temporary. There's this old saying that says: there are plenty of fish in the sea. And, probably, maybe, this would be why I would recommend you to watch this beautiful movie. (Plus, the comedy is on point!)

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7

4.26

On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"

Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet

Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood

In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward

From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics

All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back

Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges

There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
