I look into the Future and say the one with Joel Kinnaman. What’s YOUR Favorite Romantic Comedy?

June 14, 2011

Joel Kinnaman is on a roll.

Not only did his great new show The Killing get picked up for a second season by AMC; he has also been cast as the male lead in Fox Searchlight’s new romantic comedy Lola Versus.

The movie is already in production and Kinnaman replaces Orlando Bloom as a tattoo artist who dumps his fiancée three weeks before the wedding. Reports actually are split between if he’s playing a tattoo artist or a tattoed artist but hey, he’s in the movie and that’s all I need to know.

The crushed girlfriend (Greta Gerwig) proceeds to embark on a series of desperate encounters as she finds herself questioning her place in the world on the cusp of turning 30.

Yup, I guess it’s another one of those movies. You know, the Letters to Juliet kind who never ever delivers anything remotely fresh in either story or dialogue.

I usually end up liking all of them anyway. Who cares Hollywood can’t make a new When Harry met Sally? I recently watched Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston team up in romantic comedy Just Go with It and I even liked that one. I guess as long as they have the comedy down, I don’t care if the romantic part is flawed.

I would like to end with two questions. The first one concerning why Orlando Bloom quit the movie, but i suspect it’s either the classic creative differences or he’s scared of needles. So I guess we’re down to one question:

What’s YOUR favorite romantic comedy?

    Annie Hall? Or perhaps Wall-E?

    IMDB says no, Before sunset is not a comedy, just romantic. I will go with Amelie then!
