Movie's Book On Love
As defined by Hollywood, romance could easily be a triumph in everyone's life.
1. Love arises where you least expect it
Scan Hollywood's romantic offerings and one thing is an overwhelming constant: the leads who fall in love, rarely see each other as romantic material before the audience does.
2. It's never too late for love
There are two types of romances that fit this Hollywood Guide to Romance, older folks finding true love and younger couples who once knew each other and find that with time, love blossoms. In
Terms of Endearment, Shirley Maclaine and Jack Nicholson find love with each other in the golden years of life while in Just Friends, Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart find love in
their 20's that began for Reynolds in high school.
3. Opposites attract
And we don't mean in age, although Hollywood has fun with that as well – Six Nights, Seven Days comes to mind – opposites attracting is a classic mechanism for filmmakers
to connect to aspiring lovebirds. In Pretty Woman, Richard Gere's millionaire would never fall for a woman of the night. But, this is Hollywood and a romantic comedy, so therefore,
the two weave their way through the movie until love is found and they both live happily ever after.
4. Give of oneself
Think Jerry McGuire when he figures out that success is not much fun without Renee Zellweger there to share it with him.
5. Be open to new things
In Hollywood films, it is also a terrific plot tool to place two characters who are attracted to each other, in unfamiliar settings. If one or the other – or both – are out of
place and thus, need to lean on the other, love blossoms.
