I love romantic comedies. I’m a chick, what can I say. I love love stories. I have this sorta obsession with what I call “the look.” I’m sure that all you ladies out there know what I’m talking about. The Look is this way that a man looks at a woman and simply makes her heart melt.
Bill Pullman in While You Were Sleeping. Every time he looks at Lucy (Sandra Bullock), I want to cry!
Colin Firth is the master of The Look. Bridget Jones’s Diary, Pride and Prejudice, Love Actually. He just nails it every time!
I think Bridget Jones’s Diary is the first movie where I really fell in love with The Look. And now I look for it in every romantic movie I watch. Or television show.
I think there’s just something so wonderful knowing that a man can look at a woman with love reading all over his face. Even though it’s make-believe in the movies, I have to believe that it can be real. That there are men in real life who look at the women they love like this.
That someday, someone will look at me like that.
Maybe it’s a pipe dream. I’ll probably never have this

Those last two were excellent in Atonement as well – a must-see movie. Both he and she capture ‘the look.’
(Your blogroll my blog from three blogs ago. I’m at Blogger now: http://corramcfeydon.blogspot.com/ — from the desk of a writer.)
I got tired of WordPress not taking widgets.
Sorry to keep hopping! I’m a flutterbug and have left a trail all over the blogosphere, but I’m pretty comfortable now and should be staying where I’ve landed. 😉
I hope you’re well!
Sorry — fast typing. That’s supposed to say ‘your blogroll LISTS my blog from three blogs ago.’)

Thank you so much! I like to wander by the writing tags sometimes and see if I can find any diamonds in the rough and the title of your post just reached out and grabbed me! I’ll definitely be back to your blog as well!
I love “the look”. Actually, it’s too funny that you blogged about this because I wrote about the “smile” yesterday http://koreenclemens.com/2009/12/17/holiday-dilemma/
And don’t give up on those pipe dreams. Someday you’ll find your look.
