Romantic Favorites Collection
Instead of just getting her one movie, get her this set of four favorite romantic comedies: “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason” starring Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth; “Love Actually” with an all-star cast that includes Hugh Grant and Keira Knightly; “Notting Hill” starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant; and “About a Boy” starring Hugh Grant. These popular films are sure to be among her favorites, and she can enjoy watching them over and over again with this gift from you. In fact, she can watch them alone, with her friends, or with you as part of a romantic date night.
There are special features on all three discs, including feature commentary with director Beeban Kidron, deleted scenes, “Mark & Bridget: Forever?”, “Bridget Jones Interviews Colin Firth”, “Lonely London”, “The Big Fight”, the “Who’s Your Man Quiz”, Hugh Grant’s movie tips, production notes, Kelly Clarkson’s “The Trouble with Love” music video, and much more.
This is a classic tale starring Mia Wasikowska as the orphaned governess Jane. When she arrives to work at Thornfield Hall, she finds herself fascinated by her employer Rochester, played by Michael Fassbender. He is a dark and brooding character, his moods along with strange happenings in the home lead her to a discovery: a secret he had hoped she would never find out. This is a dark story, full of suspense and romance. Viewers say that this film does the book justice, something that doesn’t always happen. The book translates easily to the big screen, and this is a wonderful adaptation.
There are also several special features with this movie, including deleted scenes not seen in theaters. Other features include “A Loo Inside Jane Eyre”, “To Score Jane Eyre: Cary Fukunaga and Dario Marianelli Team Up”, “The Mysterious Light of Jane Eyre”, and a feature commentary with director Cary Fukunaga. This film is available on DVD and Blu-Ray, and in multiple formats, including widescreen.
This Jennifer Aniston and Arron Eckhart feature is a fun, romantic film with plenty of ups, downs, twists, and turns. Eckhart plays self-help author Dr. Burke Ryan who comes to Seattle to teach a seminar that has been sold out. Burke meets Eloise Chandler (played by Aniston), a florist who has sworn off men and who may be just the person who can help him to help himself. The only problem is, the right people have met each other at exactly the wrong time. Will this work out for them? If they give it a chance, they may just find that it will, and that love happens.
Martin Sheen is excellent in his supporting role as Burke’s late wife’s father. He can see that his son-in-law is troubled, despite being so successful. While set in Seattle, much of this movie was actually shot in Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada. It is available on Amazon Video, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Multi-Format. If you want to give her an awesome date night movie, this is definitely one to put on your list.
