Rom-Coms are the best and the worst. When we’re in a happy relationship, we fully understand how the couples in the movies feel. When we’re single, we watch anyways despite convincing ourselves that happy endings are overrated while simultaneously setting our expectations ridiculously high. Wishing for a serenade outside our window or a musical number as an apology shouldn’t be too much to ask, right?
Twitter recently set off a trend of hunting down the best “looks” from the iconic Rom-Coms of our time, and we all need someone to look at us this way. It’s not a fashion lewk but a “look.” Call it the look, the smolder or love at first, or fiftieth sight, it’s when the protagonists look at their person and just know. Their childhood best friend is actually their soul mate, the classmate they detested for years became someone they want to know better, and the stranger from the cafe is someone they cannot live without. Either these actors had something going on in real life or their acting is stellar because this type of chemistry is off the charts.
Thanks for setting our expectations even higher.
Some ships were meant to be.
So much spoken with no words. We’ll just try to forget that they’re related.
No one knew love like how it was in the 90s.
James McAvoy has featured the look in more than one movie and at this point, it should be a crime.
Mr. Darcy had no lines but we could tell how much he wanted to snog Elizabeth here.
If your SO doesn’t look at you the way these actors look at their co-stars, you need a new one.
