We hope you never have a girlfriend with short-term memory loss like Drew Barrymore’s character in this movie – but we do hope you have the tenacity of Adam Sandler’s.
If relationships were easy, everyone would be in dating heaven.
So, that’s why we’ve gone through the winners of the Best Picture Oscar since 1928 to bring you our top 10 picks… Gone With the Wind (1939) says ‘I’m in this for the long haul’ This American Civil War epic – and perhaps one of the most famous love stories of all time – is a very long film, clocking in at 3 hours and 44 minutes. By choosing this film to settle down and watch you’re making a real commitment to your date (and putting a lot of faith in him/her wanting to stick around for that long).
On a deeper level you’re also telling your date that you love huge sweeping epics, and that perhaps you’re not really a big fan of subtlety! Ghandi (1982) says ‘I care about the wider world’ Another long film here at 3 hours and 11 minutes, and by picking this Oscar winning film you’re making quite a statement to your date. Lord of the Rings (2003) says ‘I’m a bit of a secret geek’ The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King was the final film of the trilogy and the first time a fantasy epic had ever won a Best Picture Oscar.
This is no fluffy love story or side-splitting comedy; it depicts the life of one of the most important figures in Indian history. By picking this film to view on a date, you’re really staking your hopes on your date liking Tolkien’s tales too.
It’s a risk – the world seems to be split into people who find the Lord of the Rings trilogy fascinating, and those who find it deathly dull. Shakespeare in Love (1998) says ‘I’m hedging my bets’ Primarily a romance, Shakespeare in Love is also quite a sharp comedy as well.
