2. The Five-Year Engagement

Jason Segel and Emily Blunt
I finally watched this the other day and found myself laughing out loud throughout the entire thing.  It’s the perfect mix of romantic and ridiculous.

3. My Best Friend’s Wedding

Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz
I first saw this movie in the theaters when I was in middle school.  My cousin and I had to pick a movie and couldn’t agree between this one and Wild America.  My grandma made us flip a coin.  I won 🙂

6. The Wedding Singer
Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore (and a cameo by Billy Idol)
We watched this in my house nearly every night for a solid six months.  The eject button on our VCR upstairs was broken so we used to have to take the tape out with butter knives so that we could return it to Joe’s Video (this entire paragraph makes me feel old).
