Lovely Blog Party || Corny couples I can't (or couldn't) help but like.
[To clarify, these are a few couples that at least come from slightly cheesier films. I don't want to offend anybody by calling your favorite couple corny--definitely not--but I just know for me personally that some of these movies are ones that I might feel a tad embarrassed to admit to liking. ;-P Not all of them (not Knight and Day, for instance), but some of them (*cough*John Carter*cough*).]
I know that these romances are corny, but I'm easily affected! I can't help it!
So don't judge me. ;-P
✾ John & Dejah ✾
*cringes a little* Honestly, this is probably the cheesiest movie on the list (start out with a bang, and all that), and I believe I remember thinking even while watching it that I definitely should not have been being affected by the romance.
But I was definitely being affected by the romance.
And probably still would be now, were I to watch it again. Which I kind of want to. I really enjoyed it.
✾ June & Roy ✾
Knight and Day
This couple is kind of supposed to be over-the-top, because the whole movie is supposed to be over-the-top. It's an action-y chick-flick that pokes a good deal of fun at some of the tropes of both classic action and classic romance. And I am, as they say, Here For That, so I really enjoy this movie. It's hysterical.
And Roy and June are actually quite cute in their wacky way.
✾ Dastan & Tamina ✾
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
|Look at this picture. It is aesthetically pleasing.|
Actually, I don't think this movie was really all that cheesy--not any more than National Treasure is cheesy. They're both well-made movies considering what they're supposed to be: family movies with some improbable scenarios and premises, liberally dashed with fun for everyone.
At least, that's what I remember. I only saw Prince of Persia once. :-P
So Dastan and Tamina probably shouldn't even be on this list, because I don't think they or their movie is really cheesy, if you think about it. But I wanted to mention them and this seemed like the best place to do it. :-P
I definitely want to re-watch this, to see if my above impression of it is accurate.
✾ Neil & Christy ✾
Oh, boy. ;-P
I keep going back and forth on these two. From what I recall, there are some really cheesy parts with this couple in the TV series, but I get the feeling that I'd still high-key fall for them if I re-watched it. (Which I probably will.) Despite the corniness, they are a compelling couple. (For me, at least.) And I think they get more development as a couple in the series than in the book, yes?
✾ Ella & Char ✾
|This picture too is aesthetically pleasing.|
I already did a whole spiel about this movie and my very mixed thoughts on it in this post, but I will admit that it still has some nostalgia for me. It could probably still cheer me up if I watched it when feeling blue. It's a story that I loved very much in my tweens (pssh, who am I kidding, I still love it), so it has a feeling of safety to it for that reason.
I mean, it's still crude and Very Different From The Book and all that, but it's also clever, for all that; and I think Hugh Dancy and Anne Hathaway did well together as Char and Ella. I think they had pretty decent chemistry.

|My friend and I legit Felt Feelings when we saw this movie for the first time (and that wasn't long ago).|
