Blended

Summer is coming and love is in the air! Celebrate both with some romantic comedies that combine love and travel.

Romancing the Stone (1984) Kathleen Turner stars as a sheltered but successful romance novelist who has the rare chance to live out an adventure befitting one of her heroines. Once her sister is kidnapped in Columbia, she rushes to the rescue, but soon runs into trouble. Luckily, she crosses paths with a rugged wild man (Michael Douglas) who introduces her to the ways of the jungle and of love. Danny DeVito co-stars; Robert Zemeckis directs.

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004) In the follow-up to the hit rom-com Bridget Jones's Diary, Renée Zellweger reprises her role as the titular heroine who is easily befuddled by love, sex, and career. The story picks up with Bridget still with Mark Darcy, and hopeful he'll soon propose. But the road for happiness is never smooth for this Brit wit, and a trip to Thailand throws her whole world into spin. Colin Firth and Hugh Grant star; Beeban Kidron directs.

Roman Holiday (1953) Last but not least a classic that boasts three Academy Awards, including one for its leading lady Audrey Hepburn. She stars as a proper princess who has too long been kept inside the dull walls of her castle. So, one beautiful day she slips pasts her guards and out into the streets of 1950s Rome, where she stumbles upon a charming paparazzo played Gregory Peck. Eddie Albert co-stars; William Wyler directs.
