I’ve talked before about good movies for traditional couples where the man likes action thrillers and the woman likes chick flicks and romance. This morning while getting ready for work, I found the perfect movie. I didn’t get to watch the whole thing because I was getting ready but I saw enough to know that it was perfect.
When it was over, I said to my husband, “This is the perfect movie for us because it involves an assassin, there’s action and a love story, and it takes place in a cute little town in Ireland. It’s funny and serious and it’s got good writing and actors.” Then I said “What’s it called?” He said “Assassin In Love.” Isn’t that the perfect husband and wife movie? 🙂 Curiously, it is unclear whether the movie is called The Baker or Assassin In Love. But what’s in a name, right?
The movie is classified as a comedy thriller. Maybe this is a generally good genre for husbands and wives. Other movies classified this way that we have seen are: In Bruges, Sneakers, Sweeny Todd, and The Truth About Charlie. These all worked pretty well for both of us although I wasn’t crazy about Sneakers. I haven’t done much research on this genre but will do more. Comedy thrillers. Who knew?
I think I might do a new segment on my blog called Movie Mondays where I talk about a movie we’ve seen and rate it from the husband and wife perspectives. What do you think?
What genres or movies do you think work well for husbands and wives?
