or My Favorite Romantic Comedies Starring Tom Hanks, Who I Love
I am a self-proclaimed hater of romantic comedies. I'd rather spend my time watching something with some action and adventure and intrigue. Honestly, I'd rather watch all 89 Saw movies before popping in The Notebook. (Sidenote: As I Googled "worst romantic comedies", Google suggested "worst roman emperors" ... which interested me more.) This isn't to say I dislike people who enjoy rom coms, I just do not fall into that category.
I do make an exception, however. If a romantic comedy starring Tom Hanks comes out, you can bet I'm going to be first in line at the theater. Possibly even alone in the theater (I'm looking at you, Larry Crowne).
My love for this man runs deep. I'll see anything he's in and get mad every year he doesn't win the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award. (George Clooney ... really?!)
One night, as I was perusing my DVD collection, I came upon my Tom Hanks section. Between thinking about how good a hugger he probably is (not in a creepy way, I swear) and laughing that he can sign thank you notes "T.Hanks", an idea came into my head. It went something like this:
"Romantic comedies. Rom coms. Tom Hanks. Tom Hanks in a romantic comedy. Tom Hanks in a rom com. OH MY GOD. TOM COMS. THIS IS MY BEST IDEA EVER."
And thus, Tom Coms was born.
If you've yet to experience the magic that is a Tom Com, I'm here to share three of my favorites with you.
"I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so badly."
Do you have a favorite Tom Com? Can we gush together in the comments?
