Rom Coms that Even Men Can Go For

We understand that you would rather prefer watching a Marvel movie for the nth time rather than opting for a romantic comedy while lying in the blanket with your partner. Men are different and have different choices when it comes to movies.

However, there are certain rom coms that will make you fall for them and you will probably ask your partner to play it once more. Instead of cuddling with them while watching the movie, your attention will be at what comes next in the movie.

While you might be rolling your eyes at this point, why don’t you have a look at what we have listed for you. You might end up watching all of them, that too, with your guy friends instead of your partner! Have a read:

Jerry Maguire

Starring actor Tom Cruise and Renée Zellweger, ‘Jerry Maguire’ is a movie about a pro sports agent Jerry Maguire, played by Tom Cruise, who has plenty of clients, although he doesn’t care about any of them. He has a beautiful fiance and everything that a man could dream of. However, after getting a panic attack one night in his hotel room, he questions his purpose in life as well as his ethics.

He lets go of his dishonest ways and decides to start his career with a new lease on his life. However, his superiors aren’t happy with his views and he is left with only one client till the end.

The movie elaborates the hardships that an honest man has to face in life, once letting go of the crooked ways that he usually uses. Zellweger levitates the movie with her acting as Dorothy Boyd by being by our hero’s side and believing in him when no one else did.

Knocked Up

There are plenty of movies about one night stands, however, ‘Knocked Up’ is slightly different. Starring Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl, the movie starts with Heigl as Alison Scott, being promoted at E! Television. Elated with her promotion, she goes to a night club with her sister Debbie. While the night is still young, she meets Ben Stone, played by Seth Rogen, and both of them get sloshed, ending up having an awkward one night stand.

Eight weeks later, Alison gets to know that she is pregnant and informs Ben. Instead of getting an abortion, they both decide to get together and have the baby.
