Meryl Streep
Alec Baldwin
Steve MartinTwo attractive men vie for the affections of a woman with a flourishing catering business.  One is and attractive architect and the other her ex-husband (now married to a younger woman).  Juicy comedy. Nancy Myers wrote and directed it (She also wrote Somethin’s Gotta Give)

    Bridges of Madison County with Meryl Streep as an Italian war bride living on a farm in Iowa. Never read the book, but the movie was wonderful and worth seeing Streep carry off the role. (I guess it doesn’t fit RomCom category but it was romantic) Also since Halloween is around the corner–Dracula with Frank Langella. Edward Gorey designed the sets. Bite me in the neck!!

    Good point. A little empowerment too!

    How about Dirty Dancing? Remember “nobody puts baby in the corner.”
