#BillyMack is dead! Long Live #MeetCute!

Posted in Uncategorized

Mark your calendars, everybody! It’s that time of year again. What time? HOLIDAY MOVIE WATCH-ALONG TIME!

For the past several years, Trout Nation has gathered around the loving glow of the television to celebrate the season by watching that problematic Christmas fave, Love, Actually. But I’ve gotten a bit bored of it. You can only watch Rick Grimes creep on his BFF’s girl so many times, you know?

This year, we’re gonna shake it up a bit. This year, we’re going to watch Nancy Meyer’s classic romantic comedy The Holiday.

7 p.m. EST

If you’re into white people wearing expensive-looking sweaters and falling in love to Imogen Heap, this is the movie for you, boy howdy. Unfortunately, it’s not on Netflix. But you’ve got time to Red Box it, borrow it from a friend, or rent it on Amazon or YouTube. Or thief it off the internet. But I never told you to do that.

Make some hot cocoa and grab some cookies, start the movie at 7pm EST, and tweet to #MeetCute.

(Can’t make the posted time due to the Earth being to god damn big and round? Watch it and tweet anyway. We can all catch up!)

    I love this movie. I really enjoy watching Cameron Diaz being out acted by the entire cast…even the 5 year old.

    Cool. I picked this movie up years ago in the DVD bargain bin and just never got around to watching it. Now I get to watch it with you fine people.

    You may have gotten me into erotica but you will not get me to a rom com party. I’ll be busy catching up on True Blood Tues! : )

    Sorry, but the absolute best holiday rom com is While You Were Sleeping. Always and forever.

      I love that movie. My family acts out the dinner scene convos sometimes. “These mashed potatoes are so creamy.” 🙂

    Awww, I like this movie! It’s the most charming performance Jack Black has ever given; I get annoyed with the “awkward dude somehow snags megababe” trope, but his character is such a sweetheart it actually makes sense for once.
    My favorite holiday rom-com is Home For the Holidays, which is really more of a rom-dramedy when I think about it, but it’s so delightful.
