The Big Sick(2017)

Directors : Michael Showalter

Our View :

It's rare indeed to find a romantic comedy that can be smart, funny and check the rom com boxes. It's quite an accomplishment to successfully straddle the indie and commercial sensibilities. We care about these characters and their coming of age, in a world that pushes the envelope of the genre.

Rom Com Movies

Rom coms are back in. Thanks to last year's Crazy Rich Asians, new Netflix title Always Be My Maybe, and a slew of hit series in the genre, we're seeing a bit of a resurgence. They're even rebooting Four Weddings and Funeral as a series this year! And if you have not seen the all time champ, When Harry Met Sally, celebrating its 30th Anniversary, now is the time. To see a real classic, check out His Girl Friday with Cary Grant!
