ROM-COM FEBRUARY πŸ’“

It's just that when your mom hugged me today... she really hugged me.

I know there's better, funnier quotes to choose from but this one is my absolute favourite. Behind the witty, sarcastic humour sprinkled throughout this excellent movie, THE scene where everything changes is still done with care and attention. It's not silly but instead it is tender and loving.

Kate Hudson is absolutely amazing and I'm in love with her, and she delivers the line with such raw emotion that she doesn't even have to explain it for us to understand what she's trying to say. And Ben gets it too and doesn't even have to ask for further explanation; the few words, her face, her voice -- it's enough for his face to burst into the most beautiful display of love I've ever seen in a rom-com. And neither of them even notices that that's it! It's over! They're in love!

And that's why this movie works, because of that scene.

I wish I was more eloquent to go more in depth but this is all you're gonna get. Now, that being said, I think this movie finally made me understand why people are so charmed by Matthew McConaughey.
